Abstract Submission: June 15 Paper Submission: June 22 Notification: August 15 Camera Ready: September 15 Conference: December 1-3

--------------------- Objectives and Topics ---------------------

Large amounts of multimedia material, such as images, audio, video, and 3D/4D material, as well as computer generated 2D, 3D, and 4D content, already exist and are growing at increasing rates. While these amounts are growing, managing distribution of and access to multimedia material is becoming ever harder, both for lay and professional users.

The SAMT conference series tackles these problems by investigating the semantics and pragmatics of multimedia generation, management, and user access. The conference targets scientifically valuable research tackling the semantic gap between the low-level signal data representation of multimedia material and the high-level meaning that providers, consumers, and prosumers associate with the content.

We welcome innovative solutions that consider some or 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 operates. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

1) SEMANTIC ANALYSIS AND MULTIMEDIA

a) Knowledge assisted multimedia analysis

b) Content-based multimedia analysis linked with natural

language and speech processing

2) SEMANTIC RETRIEVAL AND MULTIMEDIA

a) Semantic-driven multimedia indexing and retrieval

b) Semantic retrieval of 3D objects

c) Machine Learning and relevance feedback for finding semantics

d) Semantic-driven multimedia content adaptation and summarization

3) SEMANTIC METADATA MANAGEMENT OF MULTIMEDIA

a) Metadata management for multimedia

b) Multimedia ontologies and infrastructures

c) Standards bridging the multimedia and knowledge domains

4) SEMANTIC USER INTERFACES FOR MULTIMEDIA

a) Interfaces and personalization for interaction with large

multimedia repositories

b) Semantic media annotation

c) Inference and machine learning for semi-automatic annotation

d) Browsing multimedia archives

e) Device-specific access to and adaptation of multimedia

5) SEMANTICS IN VISUALIZATION AND COMPUTER GRAPHICS

a) Illustrative depiction and rendering

b) Mapping meaning to presentation content

c) Smart virtual environments

d) Supporting knowledge discovery

6) APPLICATIONS OF SEMANTIC MULTIMEDIA

a) Social multimedia tagging

b) Context, user, network and semantics-aware media engineering

c) Multimedia mash-ups

d) Case studies with clear, innovative lessons learned
