3rd International Workshop on Automated Information Extraction in Media
Production AIEMPro'10

In conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2010 ") , Florence
25-29 October 2010

Organised By:
- Vlaamse Radio- en Televisieomroep - Medialab
- European Broadcasting Union . Union Europ?enne de Radiot?l?vision
- RAI Radiotelevisione Italiana, Centre for Research and Technological
- NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) Science and Technology Research

The third Workshop on Automated Information Extraction in Media Production
(AIEMPro10) aims at fostering exchange of ideas and of practises between
leading experts in research and leading actors in the media community, in
order to catalyse the migration towards new ways of producing media content,
aided by large scale introduction of tools for automated multimedia analysis
and understanding. On the other hand, the workshop should help researchers
in better understanding what are some real-life key requirements which would
enable their scientific developments come into wider adoption.

The explosion of new media distribution channels based on the Internet and
the new production workflows based on digital computer-based tools is
forcing nerw business models for in media industry. Internet-based
multimedia fruition model, e.g. as recently promoted by the European
Commission Future Internet Initiative, is progressively substituting the
traditional one-to-many broadcasting model. To cope with these new trends,
broadcasters have been changing their approach, trying to embrace these
new models into their facilities, though the overall economic convenience of
these initiatives is still to be fully proved.

Media production workflows are substantially influenced by new ways of
acquiring, elaborating and publishing audiovisual material. In this context,
automatic information extraction techniques based on audiovisual content
analysis are seen as an interesting and promising option to streamline these
processes and lower the total cost of new productions, and as a way to help
to disseminate existing archives. This line of development has been fully
recognised by the European Broadcasting Union as of crucial importance, by
setting up a specific technical group on the subject (EC-M/SCAIE).

Though an immense amount of resources are spent by the research community in
the broadly recognised area of multimedia semantic extraction, unfortunately
little exploitation of these efforts has happened in industrial

The workshop aims at attracting the attention of researchers and
practitioners in the field of automatic information extraction based on
audiovisual content analysis on the problems related with media production
processes. In particular, the objective is to analyse the impact and
performances of these tools in real-life applications, and on real-life

Authors are encouraged to submit papers on which they enlighten the features
of existing or novel tools in the key aspects of future media production
based on automated information extraction, including acquisition, editing,
publishing, archiving and repurposing of audiovisual material. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

- Efficient and real-time audiovisual indexing in acquisition
- Automated repurposing of archived material on new media channels
- Automated news production
- Efficient indexing and retrieval of multimedia streams
- Automatic speech recognition and personality identification (e.g.
face or speaker identification)
- Collaborative systems for media production
- Multimodal topic and concept detection
- Information Retrieval systems from Multimedia Archives
- Mechanisms for the estimation of the trust of news
- Opinion mining and Sentiment Analysis over news and media streams
- Ontologies and metadata formats
- Large scale processing of heterogeneous data
- HCI for efficient annotation and retrieval
- Automated material copyright infraction detection and material
- Content summarisation (e.g., sports highlights)
- Audiovisual genre and editorial format detection and
- Cross-media indexing and integration
- Content segmentation tools (e.g., shot and semantic scene
- Applications of MPEG-7 and MPEG-21 standard
- Evaluation methods for multimedia analysis tools including data
sets and standard resources (e.g. reference dictionaries for ASR)

The organising committee will make available a considerable amount of
audiovisual material taken from some of the major European broadcasters
archives. Perspective authors may test their technologies on this material,
in order to further prove the effectiveness of their research in a real
scenario. Contact the workshop organisers to get information about how to
get the material.

Test material for experimentation is available at the Online Media Asset
Management System "Mammie" provided by the organizers. Download is
conditioned to some terms and conditions for the use of the material. You
can find the full text on the register page of the Mammie system.

By clicking on the link below, you will be redirected to the "Mammie"
system. Use to Register link and fill out the form as accurate as possible
to request your access to the system. After manual verification of your
request (which can take up to 5 days), you will be notified about your
approval to use the system.

Notification of Acceptance due: July 5th 2010
Camera Ready due: July 26th 2010
Workshop date: To be announced.

Submission Guidelines:

The recommended length for papers is 6 pages, following the ACM Proceedings
format (full information available at the ACM Multimedia Submission Page
") ).
Simultaneous submission to another conference/workshop/journal is not
allowed. Papers must be original and have not been published or under
consideration for publications elsewhere. Each paper will be reviewed by at
least three members of the programme committee recognised for their
competence in the field covered by the paper.
