Call for paper ACM International Conference on Image and Video Retrieval, 5-7, July, 2010 www.civr2010.org Image and video storage and retrieval continues to be one of the most exciting and fastest-growing research areas in the field of multimedia technology. However, opportunities for the exchange of ideas between different groups of researchers, and between researchers and potential users of image/video retrieval systems, are still limited. The International Conference on Image and Video Retrieval (CIVR) series of conferences was originally set up to illuminate the state of the art in image and video retrieval between researchers and practitioners throughout the world. This conference aims to provide an international forum for the discussion of challenges in the fields of image and video retrieval. CIVR2010 is seeking original high quality submissions addressing innovative research in the broad field of image and video retrieval. A unique feature of the conference is the high level of participation from practitioners. Applications papers and presentations suitable for a wide audience are therefore particularly welcome. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: Content-based indexing, search, and retrieval of images & videos Semantic-based indexing, search, and retrieval of images & videos Affect-based indexing, search, and retrieval of images & videos Advanced descriptors and similarity metrics for images, audio and video Learning and relevance feedback in image/video retrieval 3D images and models Ontologies for annotation and search of images and videos Fusion of multimedia Image/video summarization and visualization Evaluation of image and video retrieval systems Database architectures for image/video retrieval Novel image data management systems and applications High performance image/video indexing algorithms Image/video search and browsing on the Web Retrieval from multimodal lifelogs Applications in satellite, forensic, (bio-)medical image and video collections HCI issues in image and video retrieval Novel image data management systems and applications Neural network techniques for image & video classification and retrieval Important Dates: Paper submission deadline: February 1, 2010 Notification of acceptance: March 15, 2010 Camera ready papers due: April 1, 2010 Further Information available at: www.civr2010.org
