5th International Conference on Semantic And digital Media Technologies Saarbruecken, Germany December 1-3, 2010 --------------- Important Dates --------------- 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 associated prosumers.
