========================================================================== The 2010 International Workshop on Multimedia and Semantic Technologies (MUST'10) http://www.ftrg.org/must2010/ Busan, Korea, 21-23 May, 2010 In conjunction with FutureTech 2010 http://www.ftrg.org/futuretech2010/ =========================================================================== The Workshop on Multimedia and Semantic Technologies (MUST'10) aims at high quality research contributions in multimedia semantic computing, with a focus on how to apply the semantic technologies to the acquisition, generation, storage, processing, and retrieval of large-scale multimedia information. A main goal of MUST is to address emerging research challenges in Semantic Multimedia and to help reducing the Semantic Gap between low-level content descriptions of multimedia and the semantics in high-level human interpretations of audiovisual media. Semantic Web and multimedia community researchers are encouraged to join the workshop to benefit from the presentation of results from multimedia based research, which demonstrate important multimedia applications which could be enhanced by Semantic Web technologies. MUST'10 will be held in conjunction with FutureTech 2010, in Busan, Korea, 21-23 May 2010. MUST'10 encourages a multidisciplinary perspective and welcomes papers that address challenges of multimedia in general or in the context of specific domains. Workshop topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following: == Topics == - Advanced Semantic Descriptors and Similarity Metrics for Multimedia - Advanced Semantic and Content-based Multimedia Analysis - Machine Learning and Relevance Feedback in Multimedia Analysis and Retrieval - Ontology Engineering and Ontology-based Multimedia Mining and Retrieval - Semantic Web technologies and Multimedia - Semantic-driven Multimedia Indexing and Retrieval - Semantic-driven Multimedia Personalization and Adaptation - Interfaces for Web-scale Multimedia Repositories - Affective/Emotional Interaction or Interfaces in Multimedia Applications - Applications of Semantic Multimedia in Social and Web-based Environments - Collective and Swarm Intelligence for Multimedia Applications - Multimedia and Digital Convergence - Intelligent Multimedia Services for Future Environments - Multimedia Security in Future Environments == Organization == Workshop General Chair ------------------------ Balakrishnan Prabhakaran, University of Texas at Dallas, USA Workshop Chairs -------------------- Seungmin Rho, Korea University, Korea (Leading Chair) Marco Bertini, Universita di Firenze, Italy Gamhewage C. de Silva, The University of Tokyo, Japan Stephan Kopf, University of Mannheim, Germany International Advisory Committee ----------------------------------- Jong Hyuk Park, Seoul National University of Technology, Korea Borko Furht, Florida Atlantic University, USA Jianhua Ma, Hosei University, Japan Shu-Ching Chen, Florida International University, USA Yang Xiao, University of Alabama, USA Publicity Chairs ----------------------------------- Ming Li, California State University, USA International Program Committee ----------------------------------- Namunu C.
