SMDT2010 || Second Workshop on Semantic Multimedia Database Technologies 12th International Workshop of the Multimedia Metadata Community

SMDT2010 || Second Workshop on Semantic Multimedia Database Technologies
12th International Workshop of the Multimedia Metadata Community

The workshop is collocated with the 5th International Conference on Semantic and Digital Media Technologies (SAMT2010) in Saarbrücken, Germany - Dec 1-3, 2010.

Ontology-based systems have been developed to structure content and support knowledge retrieval and management. Semantic multimedia data processing and indexing in ontology- based systems is usually done in several steps. One starts by enriching multimedia metadata with additional semantic information (possibly obtained by methods for bridging the semantic gap). Then, in order to structure data, a localized and domain specific ontology becomes necessary since the data has to be interpreted domain-specifically. The annotations are stored in an ontology management system where they are kept for further processing. In this scope, Semantic Database Technologies are now applied to ensure reliable and secure access, efficient search, and effective storage and distribution for both multimedia metadata and data. Their services can be used to adapt multimedia to a given context based on multimedia metadata or even ontology information. Services automate cumbersome multimedia processing steps and enable ubiquitous intelligent adaptation. Both, database and automation support facilitate the ubiquitous use of multimedia in advanced applications.

Topics of interest are how multimedia metadata standards and multimedia ontologies are mapped or integrated into databases, how multimedia query languages are built, and how semantic queries are optimized and processed. Moreover, we are interested how multimedia data services are conceived to ensure interoperability, how to improve security and reliability of access and storage of multimedia data and metadata. Adaptation of multimedia, semantic enrichment of multimedia and bridging of media breaks are typical examples of advanced multimedia database services.

The workshop proceedings will be published at CEUR-WS.org. Selected papers will appear in a special issue of a journal. Previous editions of the workshop have selected for instance journals from the Springer Verlag.

Important dates:
October 01, 2010 - Deadline for Workshop Papers
November 01, 2010 - Notification of Acceptance for Workshop Papers
November 08, 2010 - Camera-ready Workshop Papers due

General Information:
Ontology-based systems have been developed to structure content and support knowledge retrieval and management. Semantic multimedia data processing and indexing in ontology- based systems is usually done in several steps, one starts by enriching multimedia metadata with additional semantic information (possibly obtained by methods for bridging the semantic gap). Then, in order to structure data, a localized and domain specific ontology becomes necessary since the data has to be interpreted domain-specific. The annotations are stored in an ontology management system where they are kept for further processing. In this scope, Semantic Database Technologies are now applied to ensure reliable and secure access, efficient search, and effective storage and distribution for both multimedia metadata and data. Their services can be used to adapt multimedia to a given context based on multimedia metadata or even ontology information. Services automate cumbersome multimedia processing steps and enable ubiquitous intelligent adaptation. Both, database and automation support facilitate to ubiquitous use of multimedia in advanced applications.

We are searching for research contributions on the mapping and integration of multimedia metadata and ontologies into databases, on multimedia query languages, on the optimization and processing of semantic queries. Moreover, we are interested how multimedia data services are conceived to ensure interoperability, how to improve security and reliability of access and storage of multimedia data and metadata.

In addition, application papers showing concrete semantic multimedia database services (like, adaptation of multimedia, semantic enrichment of multimedia, and bridging of media breaks), as well as demonstrations on database technologies (like, mobile online image analysis and retrieval) are expected.

Topics of interest:

* Multimedia metadata models and mappings to databases
* Multimedia ontology and interoperability
* Multimedia ontology to database mapping and processing
* Multimedia query optimization and processing
* Ontology query languages and multimedia
* Semantic retrieval in multimedia databases
* Database management: security, indexing, reliability, distribution, transactions
* Indexing strategies for multimedia databases
* Semantic enrichment and annotation of multimedia
* Semantic metadata management
* Uncertainty in multimedia databases
* Human-computer interfaces for multimedia database access
* Mobile multimedia database services
* Context-aware multimedia
* Semantic adaptation of multimedia
* Proactive semantic multimedia delivery & distribution services
* Self-organization in service oriented multimedia architectures
* Semantic multimedia demonstrations and applications
