Call For Papers

Media sharing and social networking websites have attracted many millions of users resulting in vast collections of user generated content. The contents are typically poorly structured and spread over several platforms, each supporting specific media types. With the increasing growth and diversity of these websites, new ways to access and manage the contents are required - both within and across web platforms.


This workshop focuses on the interaction with these multimedia contents. We are particularly interested in contributions that follow Web 2.0 principles of simplicity and/or social navigation in combination with the representation, annotation, and linking power of the Semantic Web. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Navigating and visualizing semantically annotated multimedia content
* Social semantic tagging of multimedia content
* Social semantic recommendation and search of multimedia content
* Semantic mashups of multimedia content across websites
* Semantic annotation of multimedia content in Wikis and Weblogs
* Interaction with multimedia content on the semantic desktop
* Semantic user interfaces for media sharing and social networking websites
* Experiences and use cases regarding the interaction with multimedia content on the Social Semantic Web


* Researchers of the Semantic Web and Knowledge Representation communities interested in interaction aspects
* Researchers of the Multimedia and Human-Computer-Interaction communities interested in semantic aspects
* Developers of web applications, interaction designers, and information architects


* Full papers (8-12 Pages)
* Position papers (4-8 Pages)
* Poster and Demo papers (3-4 Pages)


* 14th September: Submission Deadline
* 5th October: Author's Notification
* 26th October: Camera ready
* 3rd Dezember: Workshop
