Call For Papers

Call for papers: 1st International Workshop on Media fragment creation and reMIXing (MMIX-13)

at the 2013 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME 2013), San Jose, California, USA, July 15-19, 2013


Workshop Paper Submission: March 7, 2013
Notification of Workshop Paper Acceptance: April 15, 2013
Camera-Ready Paper Due: April 30, 2013


While technologies for the manipulation of complete videos have been well-studied and are already used in relevant applications, e.g. in stock footage portals, media libraries or TV archives, where entire videos may be found and also purchased for re-use in new media production situations, these applications and markets do not permit the easy purchase or sale of smaller fragments of multimedia content. Making possible the latter would have significant benefits for both the creators and the potentials consumers of the content, most notably in terms of lowering the cost associated with re-using and re-mixing existing pieces of multimedia content towards creating new multimedia experiences. Besides benefits, though, the manipulation of multimedia content at such a finer granularity level also presents significant challenges, both purely technological (e.g. with respect to the automatic creation of meaningful media fragments, or the extraction of information that can describe such fragments and make them easily searchable) and more application-oriented ones (e.g. with respect to the required user interfaces, the use cases and even the business models associated with the re-use and re-mixing of media fragments).

This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from the different fields that contribute to the development of technologies and applications for media fragment creation and remixing, with emphasis both on the presentation of new supporting technologies for the creation and understanding of media fragments (e.g. video decomposition at different granularity levels; extraction of concepts, events, or textual descriptions that capture the meaning of specific media fragments) and on novel applications of such technologies for media fragment re-use and re- mixing in various domains, such as the traditional media industry, the news industry, video blogging and social media applications, and others.

Topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

- Multimedia fragmentation techniques
- Concept detection from media fragments
- Event detection from media fragments
- Event recounting and textual description of media fragments
- Media fragment description
- Media fragment search and retrieval
- Media fragments in the social Web
- User interfaces for media fragment manipulation
- Novel media fragment re-use and remixing results with commercial application

We encourage researchers from industry and academia to submit original works. Submitted manuscripts should be no longer than 6 pages, including all text, figures, and references. They must be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font, letter (8.5?11-inch) paper) and must be submitted as PDF files. Please note that reviewing is double blind. Further information for prospective authors (including Latex/Word templates and detailed instructions for preserving the anonymity of the submissions ? same as those for the ICME main track submissions) can be found on the ICME web page,

Workshop organizers:
- Benoit Huet, Eurecom, France
- Vasileios Mezaris, Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH-ITI), Greece
- Lyndon Nixon, STI International, Austria
