International Conference on Content-Based Multimedia Indexing
(Main submission deadline May 04, 2018)

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

After 15 successful editions of the CBMI workshop, the event is now
becoming a conference whose next edition will be held in La Rochelle,
France.  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Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished research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 ofMultimedia Tools and Applications
journal (MTAP,
