At 23rd the International Conference on Multimedia Modeling (MMM) 2017 (
Reykjavik, Iceland, January 4-7, 2017

The 23rd International Conference on Multimedia Modeling (MMM) will be held on January 4-6, 2017 in Reykjavik, Iceland. The MMM conference is a leading international conference for researchers and industry practitioners for sharing new ideas, original research results and practical development experiences from all MMM related areas. The conference calls for full research papers reporting original research and investigation results, as well as demonstration proposals, in all areas related to multimedia modeling technologies and applications. In addition, five special sessions will be held at MMM 2017, and the conference will also host the CrowdMM workshop and the popular Video Browser Showdown. For more details, please see


This special session aims at presenting the most recent works and applications in the area of multimedia analysis and multimodal interaction in the context of health and basic care. Leveraging on multidisciplinary expertise combining knowledge from research in multimedia analysis, as well as the multimodal interaction domains, new technologies are required to offer interactions, which are closer to the communication patterns of human beings and allow for a more "natural" communication with systems in the context of health and basic care. Of special interest to this session is the autonomous human-like social agents that can analyze, retrieve information and learn from conversational spoken and multimodal interaction in order to support health and basic care scenarios. Furthermore, submissions focusing on multimedia systems that support content exploration of videos from medical endoscopy are very welcome.

The research topics of the special session include but are not limited to:
- Multimedia analysis and retrieval for multimodal interaction in the health domain
- Multimedia indexing and retrieval with video recordings from medical endoscopy
- Multimodal conversation and dialogue systems for social companion agents
- Exploration and retrieval in endoscopic video
- Speech and audio analysis and retrieval for health applications
- Facial analysis and gesture recognition in social agents
- Fusion of multimedia information for health and care-giving applications
- Semantic web approaches for multimedia health applications
- Multimodal analytics for human machine interaction in the health domain
- Web and social media retrieval for knowledge-based social companion applications

Important dates:
- Deadline for paper submission: August 1st, 2016
- Notification of acceptance: October 10th, 2016
- Camera Ready Paper and Registration: October 30th, 2016
- Conference starts: January 4th, 2017
