Call For Papers

The 2009 IEEE International Workshop on Semantic Computing and Multimedia
Systems (IEEE-SCMS 2009)

Held in conjunction with the Third IEEE International Conference on Semantic
Computing (IEEE ICSC 2009)


With the proliferation of multimedia data (image, video, structured text, etc.)
and the recent advances in networks and information technology, multimedia
computing is having an unprecedented impact on every aspect of our life, from
the personal use of multimedia mobile devices, such as iPod and PDA, to a wide
spectrum of domains such as business and healthcare. The new multimedia
standards (e.g., MPEG-21) facilitate the seamless integration of multiple
modalities into interoperable multimedia frameworks, transforming the way
people work and interact with multimedia data. These key technologies and
multimedia solutions interact and collaborate with each other in an ever
effective way, bringing along the multimedia revolution. Traditional multimedia
research, which largely lies in signal processing and data communication, is
now facing challenges posed by the new research trends such as multimedia
semantic computing, multi-modal interaction and cross-mining, cooperative
processing, new multimedia standards, Quality of Service (QoS), multimedia
security, and social issues, which are just a few examples of the major
research areas.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers in multimedia
semantic computing to discuss the state of the art of the research on
semantic-based multimedia systems, present theoretical frameworks and practical
implementations, and identify challenges and open issues in multimedia semantic
modeling and integration. Multimedia semantic computing can be defined as
"Computing with (machine processable) Descriptions of Content and Intentions"
of multimedia data and has been gaining attentions in various applications
including pervasive multimedia computing systems, multimedia delivery over the
network, personalized multimedia information retrieval systems which adapt to
the user's needs, integration of semantic content and schema from distributed
multimedia sources so that the user sees a unified view of heterogeneous data,
clustering and classification of semantically-tied information in different
multimedia modalities, security issues in multimedia/hypertext systems, etc. We
invite researchers from various disciplines to submit original research
contributions to this workshop.

IEEE SCMS 2009 will be held in conjunction with IEEE International Conference
on Semantic Computing (

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

* semantic content analysis
* semantic integration
* multimedia retrieval (image, video, audio, etc.)
* multimodal data analysis and interaction
* Multimedia streaming and networking
* human-centered multimedia computing
* image/video/audio databases
* multimedia data mining
* multimedia data storage
* social network analysis from multimedia
* multimedia data modeling
* distributed multimedia systems
* multimedia data visualization
* multimedia assurance and security
* novel applications

Instructions for authors:

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on the above and
related topics are solicited. Authors should submit a 6-page technical paper
manuscript (in English) in double-column IEEE format including authors' names
and affiliations, and a short abstract, following the document templates
available on the ICSC2009 paper submission web site Manuscripts should be sent as an attachment
via email to one of the Program Chairs listed below on or before the deadline
date of June 5th, 2009. All papers should be in Adobe portable document format
(PDF). Submissions should include the name and the email address of the
corresponding author.

All submitted papers will be refereed for quality, originality and relevance by
the Program Committee. The acceptance/rejection of the papers will be based on
the review results. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop
proceedings together with the proceedings of the IEEE ICSC 2009 conference.
Based on the quality of the manuscripts, selected papers will be invited to
submit to a special issue of International Journal of Multimedia Data
Engineering and Management (IJMDEM).
