Table of Contents

With their success, the multimedia contents become ever harder to manage, to find and to access by the private users and the public or commercial organizations that created them.

The conference targets to attract authors of and audience for scientifically valuable research contributions aiming to narrow the large disparity between the low-level descriptors that can be computed automatically from multimedia content and the richness and subjectivity of semantics in user queries and human interpretations of audiovisual media - The Semantic Gap.


We are interested in innovative solutions that may consider all factors in the process of multimedia generation and consumption – including methods from low-level signal processing up to the mobile context in which a user is moving. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Semantic Analysis of Multimedia
    • Knowledge assisted multimedia analysis
    • Content-based multimedia analysis linked with natural language and speech processing
  • Semantic Retrieval of Multimedia
    • Semantic-driven multimedia indexing and retrieval
    • Semantic retrieval of 3D objects
    • Machine Learning and relevance feedback for finding semantics
    • Semantic-driven multimedia content adaptation and summarization
  • Semantic Metadata Management of Multimedia
    • Metadata management for multimedia
    • Multimedia ontologies and infrastructures
    • Standards bridging the multimedia and knowledge domains
  • Semantic User Interfaces for Multimedia
    • Interfaces and personalization for interaction with large multimedia repositories
    • Semantic media annotation
    • Inference and machine learning for semi-automatic annotation
    • Browsing multimedia archives
    • Device-specific access to and adaptation of multimedia
  • Semantics in Visualization and Computer Graphics
    • illustrative depiction and rendering
    • mapping meaning to presentation content
    • smart virtual environments
    • supporting knowledge discovery
  • Applications of Semantic Multimedia
    • Social multimedia tagging
    • Context, user, network and semantics-aware media engineering
    • Multimedia mash-ups
    • Case studies with clear, innovative lessons learned
    • Semantic analysis of medical images
    • Semantic visualization of medical data
    • Computer-aided diagnosis
  • SPECIAL SESSION ON MINING OF SOCIAL MEDIA (organized by Andreas Hotho, Univ Kassel, DE)
    • Network analysis and social structures detection in Web 2.0
    • Ontology learning on and in the Web 2.0
    • Discovering (cross system) associations, large social networks and communities
    • Predicting trends and user behavior (e.g. misuse and fraud/spam)
    • Multimedia analysis; audio/visual processing; aggregating information from different modalities


The conference proceedings will be published by Springer LNCS and the Springer Digital Library. Original contributions equivalent of 16 pages LNCS style must be electronically submitted according to the instructions that will be posted to the conference web site.
