15th International Workshop on Content-Based Multimedia Indexing Call for Papers

CBMI 2017, June 19-21, Firenze, Italy
15th International Workshop on Content-Based Multimedia Indexing


Call for Papers

CBMI aims at bringing together the various communities involved in all
aspects of content-based multimedia indexing for retrieval, browsing,
management, visualization and analytics.

The 15th edition of CBMI will be organized in Firenze, Italy, 19-21
June 2017.  The scientific program will include invited keynote talks
and regular, special and demo sessions.

Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished research
papers in the broad field of content-based multimedia indexing and
applications. We wish to highlight significant contributions
addressing the main problem of search and retrieval but also the
related and equally important issues of multimedia content management,
user interaction, large-scale search, learning in retrieval, social
media indexing and retrieval. Additional special sessions are planned
in areas such as deep learning for retrieval, social media retrieval,
cultural heritage, surveillance and security.

The CBMI proceedings are traditionally indexed and distributed by IEEE
Xplore and ACM DL. In addition, authors of the best papers of the
conference will be invited to submit extended versions of their
contributions to a special issue of Multimedia Tools and Applications
journal (MTAP).

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

    Audio and visual and multimedia indexing;
    Multimodal and cross-modal indexing; 
    Deep learning for multimedia indexing; 
    Visual content extraction; 
    Audio (speech, music, etc) content extraction; 
    Identification and tracking of semantic regions and events; 
    Social media analysis; 
    Metadata generation, coding and transformation; 
    Multimedia information retrieval (image, audio, video, text); 
    Mobile media retrieval; 
    Event-based media processing and retrieval;
    Affective/emotional interaction or interfaces for multimedia retrieval;

    Personalization and content adaptation; 
    User interaction and relevance feedback; 
    Multimedia interfaces, presentation and visualization tools; 
    Evaluation and benchmarking of multimedia retrieval systems; 
    Applications of multimedia retrieval, e.g., medicine, 
        lifelogs, satellite imagery, video surveillance;
    Cultural heritage applications.
