Streaming video has recently surpassed peer-to-peer networks in terms of network capacity hunger. Reports estimate a share of 40% of peak network capacity dedicated to entertainment, mostly streaming video. A large share of this traffic originates from web based services. YouTube alone takes up to 8% of the prime time internet traffic. So multimedia on the web is currently a big issue. While transmission currently works in a best effort system, multimedia information system on the web are far from being perfect. Retrieval, annotation, validated and useful metadata, reliable and trusted services, and user interaction and context-based adaptation are still under discussion and allow improvement. Currently, the Web itself faces dramatic changes, looking for example at the spread of social networks, Linked Data or the impact of HTML5 or WebM. These activities also have a deep effect on multimedia data and content provider. Following this, we aim to bring together researchers from the area of multimedia and the web to discuss innovative ideas and new directions in this workshop.

Streaming video has recently surpassed peer-to-peer networks in terms
of network capacity hunger. Reports estimate a share of 40% of peak
network capacity dedicated to entertainment, mostly streaming video.
A large share of this traffic originates from web based services.
YouTube alone takes up to 8% of the prime time internet traffic. So
multimedia on the web is currently a big issue. While transmission
currently works in a best effort system, multimedia information system
on the web are far from being perfect. Retrieval, annotation,
validated and useful metadata, reliable and trusted services, and user
interaction and context-based adaptation are still under discussion
and allow improvement. Currently, the Web itself faces dramatic changes,
looking for example at the spread of social networks, Linked Data or
the impact of HTML5 or WebM. These activities also have a deep effect
on multimedia data and content provider. Following this, we aim to bring
together researchers from the area of multimedia and the web to discuss
innovative ideas and new directions in this workshop.
