======================= Goals ============================

Multimedia analytics and modeling have already opened many research areas and spurred on tremendous amount of development on algorithms and applications which focus on analyzing large scale unstructured multimedia collections. While the modeling of multimedia ITSELF, such as the compression, transmission, content mining and retrieval, security and privacy, is of great importance—especially in the era of big data, when data volume is increasing exponentially—the human behaviors related to the generation, consumption, interaction and sharing of multimedia are still not well addressed. This is especially crucial with the ubiquitous adoption of smartphones and light-weight wearable devices which are equipped with multimedia sensing capabilities. These capabilities make it more feasible to characterize human behaviors, digitally, visually and semantically. In addition, the mobile Internet accessing infrastructure such as WiFi hotspots, 3G and 4G network facilitates the interaction with multimedia everywhere. We believe a full investigation on the modeling of multimedia behaviors will definitely benefit the end users in many aspects such as health care, urban planning, efficiency of digital resources usage, advertisement, etc.

This special session focuses on the most recent progress on modeling multimedia behavior from various aspects of human factors, such as interacting with multimedia contents, human behavior detection and recognition, behavioral mining and prediction, multimedia content distribution and streaming, etc. Novel applications or systems utilizing the modeling of multimedia behavior models are also welcomed.

======================= Topics of Interest ============================

The special session seeks original contribution of work, which addresses the challenges from, but not limited to, the following topics:

•Behavior tracking/monitoring using multimedia

•Interfaces & interaction with multimedia

•Multimedia sharing/streaming based on behavior models

•Behavior mining from mobile multimedia

•Long-term behavior storage and pattern mining

•QoE in multimedia systems

•Real-world use cases of behavior modeling

•Behavior data security and privacy issues

•Quantified Self/Lifelogging

•Systems, applications, services and implementations of multimedia behavior modeling

===== MMM 2017 Submission Details and Links =========================

The conference proceedings will be published as series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer. Submissions should conform to the formatting instructions of Springer Verlag, LNCS series, and adhere to the submission schedule. Regular research paper submissions (including special session papers) will be peer-reviewed in a double-blind review process, while demonstrations and VBS papers will be peer-reviewed in a single-blind process. Each contribution (research paper or demonstration) must be associated with one full registration; only one contribution can be associated with each registration. The authors of selected top research papers will be invited to publish extended versions of their papers in a special issue of Multimedia Tools and Applications (MTAP).
