The SMAP initiative was founded during the summer of 2006 in an effort to discuss the state of the art, recent advances and future perspectives for semantic media adaptation and personalization. After five successful workshops –in Athens, London, Prague, San Sebastian and Limassol–, the SMAP conference series has consolidated as a reference event in order to discuss about the newest advances in the field. The 6th SMAP workshop will be held in Vigo, Spain.
SMAP series covers different issues of semantic multimedia technologies and their use in content creation, media adaptation and user profiling. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
• Semantic content creation, annotation and modelling.
• Semantics-driven indexing and retrieval of multimedia contents.
• User modelling and dynamic profiling.
• Ontologies and reasoning.
• Semantics-based recommender systems: theory and applications.
• Semantic Web adaptation technologies.
• Content customization and adaptation.
• Semantic context modelling and extraction.
• Context-aware multimedia applications.
• Personalized information services in entertainment, learning, e-commerce, e-health, tourism, etc.
• Adaptive and personalized multimedia summaries
• Multilingual content navigation.
• Social multimedia tagging and multimedia content communities.
• Intelligent personalized interfaces.
• Multimedia standards.
The 1-track, 2-day conference aims to provide a platform for exchanging fresh ideas and expertise, and for obtaining feedback on ongoing research.
The proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services (CPS). Papers must be formatted according to the CPS formatting guidelines, with a limit of 6 IEEE 2-column style pages, including all figures, tables, and references. A minimum paper length of 4 IEEE 2-column style pages is also imposed. Papers must be submitted electronically through the EasyChair SMAP 2011 site (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=smap2011).
Following the strong presence of students in previous editions, SMAP 2011 will offer reduced registration fees for students. Also, as with previous SMAPs, plans are in place to have selected papers appear either in an edited volume or in a special journal issue.
