Deadline extension June 4, 2007: 7th Workshop of the Multimedia Metadata Community at I-MEDIA 2007

7th Workshop of the Multimedia Metadata Community at I-MEDIA 2007 (Sept. 5-7, 2007, Graz, Austria) DEADLINE EXTENDED to June 4, 2007!

Different multimedia metadata description standards have been proposed in the recent years, for example MPEG-7 and MPEG-21, as well as a number of formats and standards tailored to specific application domains (e.g. broadcasting). In addition, the application of Semantic Web technologies to multimedia content has brought forward the use of formats such as RDF for the description of multimedia content.

The overall objective of the workshop is to investigate how these formats and standards for multimedia metadata are used in real-world applications. We concentrate on the applications based on MPEG-7 and MPEG-21, but also contributions related to other multimedia metadata description standards/formats are welcome, especially those integrating semantic information. As many of these standards are relatively new, the lessons learned from using them in real applications can provide valuable feedback for their future development. The integration of these technologies within systems and the interoperability with other (legacy) metadata formats are also relevant topics.

The workshop will take place on September 5-6, 2007 (preliminary date), in context of "I-MEDIA":, the 1st International Conference on New Media Technology at the Stadthalle in Graz, Austria. This is the 7th Workshop of the "Multimedia Metadata Community": We want to extend this very active and successful community with new members.

In addition to presentation sessions, there will be a demonstration session at the workshop that allows presenting prototype applications or products based on multimedia metadata standards to a larger audience. Demonstrations can be proposed by submitting a short paper describing the proposal. At the demo session space for a displaying a poster related to the demo will be available.

The most outstanding contribution to the workshop will receive a Best Paper Award, sponsored by the "K-Space Network of Excellence":
