5th IEEE Int. Conf. on Multimedia Information Processing and Retrieval Call for Papers

5th IEEE Int. Conf. on Multimedia Information Processing and Retrieval

August 2-4, 2022 @ Virtual
New forms of multimedia data (such as text, numbers, tags, networking,
signals, geo-tagged information, graphs/relationships, 3D/VR/AR and
sensor data, etc.)  has emerged in many applications in addition to
traditional multimedia data (image, video, audio). Multimedia has
become the biggest of big data as the foundation of today's
data-driven discoveries. Almost all disciplines of science and
engineering, as well as social sciences, involve multimedia data in
some forms, such as recording experiments, driverless cars, unmanned
aerial vehicles, smart communities, biomedical instruments, security
urveillance.  Some recent events demonstrate the power of real-time
broadcast of unfolding events on social networks. Multimedia data is
not just big in volume, but also multi-modal and mostly unstructured.
Storing, indexing, searching, integrating, and recognizing from the
vast amounts of data create unprecedented challenges. Even though
significant progress has been made processing multimedia data, today's
solutions are inadequate in handling data from millions of sources

The IEEE International Conference on Multimedia Information Processing
and Retrieval (IEEE-MIPR) aims to provide a forum for original
research contributions and practical system design, implementation,
and applications of multimedia information processing and retrieval
for single modality or multiple modalities. The target audiences will
be university researchers, scientists, industry practitioners,
software engineers, and graduate students who need to become
acquainted with technologies for big data analytics, machine
intelligence, information fusion in multimedia information processing
and retrieval.  A collection of keynotes, and workshops will be held,
together with paper/poster sessions.

The conference will accept regular papers (6 pages), short papers (4
pages), and demo papers (4 pages). Authors are encouraged to compare
their approaches, qualitatively or quantitatively, with existing work
and explain the strength and weakness of the new approaches. Selected
submissions will be invited to submit to journal special issues.

multimedia data processing and retrieval.
