Call for Papers

Call for Papers for the 21st International Conference on Content-Based Multimedia Indexing 
 CBMI 2024

September 18-20, 2024 in Reykjavik, Iceland

After successful editions across Europe in France, Austria, Italy, UK,
Czech Republic, and Hungary, the Content-Based Multimedia Indexing
(CBMI) conference will take place in Reykjavík, Iceland this coming
September 2024. CBMI aims at bringing together the various communities
involved in all aspects of content-based multimedia indexing for
retrieval, browsing, management, visualisation and analytics. We
encourage contributions both on theoretical aspects and applications
of CBMI in the new era of Artificial Intelligence.  Authors are
invited to submit previously unpublished research papers highlighting
significant contributions addressing these topics. In addition,
special sessions on specific technical aspects or application domains
are planned.


Conference Website:

Authors can submit full papers (6 pages + references), short papers (4
pages + references), special session papers (6 pages + references) and
demonstration proposals (4 pages + 1 page demonstration description +
references). Authors of certain best papers of the conference will be
invited to submit extended versions of their contributions to a
special journal issue in MTAP (approval pending). Submissions to CBMI
are peer reviewed in a single blind process. All types of papers must
use the IEEE templates at The
language of the conference is English.


CBMI 2024 proposes nine special sessions:

    Multimodal Data Analysis for Understanding of Human Behaviour, Emotions and their Reasons
    Interactive Video Retrieval for Beginners (IVR4B)
    Multimedia Indexing for XR (MmIXR)
    Content-based Indexing for audio and music: from analysis to synthesis
    Advances in AI-Driven Medical and Health Data Analysis (AIMHDA)
    Multimedia analysis and simulations for Digital Twins in the construction domain 
    Multimodal Insights for Disaster Risk Management and Applications (MIDRA)
    Explainability in Multimedia Analysis (ExMA)
    Deep video analysis for the TV broadcast industry

Submission Deadlines

    Full and short research papers are due March 22, 2024
    Special session papers are due March 22, 2024
    Demonstration submissions are due April 22, 2024
