A new focus in this edition of the workshop is the emerging multimedia applications on mobile devices. Other major topics of the workshop include but are not limited to the following: Emerging technology of data mining for mobile applications. Emerging technology of data mining on media rich platforms and location enhanced environments (location based services like Foursquare, mobile maps, navigation systems, GIS applications). Multimedia data mining across platforms, including web and mobile devices. Mining large datasets of user generated content with a geographical dimension. Scalable mobile multimedia computing. Scalable mobile visual search. Predictive and prescriptive multimedia data modeling. Privacy preserving data mining. Mining multimedia time series. Multi-objective multimedia data mining. Anomaly and outlier detection in multimedia databases. Merging and integration of mining results from different sources (e.g, ensembles, fusion techniques, etc.). Scalable data mining techniques for large-scale multimedia databases. Human-computer interfaces for multimedia data mining. Topic and event discovery in large multimedia repositories. * * * Software demonstrations are welcome. We encourage submissions of ‘greenhouse’ work, which present early stages of cutting-edge research and development.
