Special Issue Description
Real-life events are ubiquitous in multimedia. We find them in the multimedia content we all have
created and shared or simply have encountered on the Web. For example, images of a concert we
recently attended, an interesting location we visited during an overseas trip a long time ago, amateur
video footage of a friend’s wedding, official footage of an important game of our favourite football
team, or eye- witness descriptions and infrared satellite images of a devastating tornado that made it
to the headlines. All this content comes in different types of media (images, videos, text, etc.) using
different modalities and was created by different devices under different conditions and with radically
different usage in mind.
What is common though for all these media items is that they all have captured and convey
information about a real-life event. Efficiently and effectively understanding these underlying,
heterogeneous real-life events from the multimedia content and using them in order to better
organize, share, retrieve and consume the content in any possible way, represents a significant
challenge in today’s connected world.
This special issue focuses on methods for the event-based processing and organization of
multimedia content, with particular emphasis on the detection of real-live events in multimedia, the
modeling of such real-life events, the sharing and the event-based retrieval of content, and other
novel applications that jointly consider multimedia content and the real-life events that this content
represents. We invite the submission of previously unpublished manuscripts describing original work
in these and related areas, as detailed below.
Topics of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited to:
O Event Detection and Processing in Multimedia Data
Recognition of events from large scale, unreliable and/or noisy media data and media streams
Event clustering towards domain-level events
Combining low-level events with domain-level events
Complex-event processing
Event-stream processing
O Event Representation and Event Models
Modeling of events on domain-level
Ontology-based representation of events
Languages for events
Formal modeling of events, activities, accomplishments, achievements, context, etc.
Reasoning with events under consideration of causality, uncertainty, similarity, etc.
Semantic description and annotation for events and event sources
O Events in the Context of Web 2.0
Collaborative event creation and sharing
Events in social networks
Event syndication (e.g., RSS) and attention management
O Architectures for Event Management
Middleware solutions for event management
Event-driven architectures
Experimental methodologies
Domain-specific solutions for event management, such as for emergency response
O Applications and Tools
Event-based applications and tools, including event-based retrieval of multimedia
Authoring of events
Events in mobile computing and ubiquitous computing
Applications that show benefits of using events in practical settings
User experience, requirements, use cases, and evaluations of event-based applications
