Call For Papers

International Conference on
*IS&T and SPIE Multimedia Content Access: Algorithms and Systems V*

23 - 27 January 2011, Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport Hotel
San Francisco, California United States

*Aims and Scope*

Modern computer technology has brought multimedia to the limelight as a new communication form,
quite possibly the first original communication form of the computer age. Today, "being multimedia" is
a real possibility for almost any online computer user, and the communicative possibilities that will
ensue from this fact will have an impact in a wide range of fields. To benefit from this potential,
developers need reliable techniques for the analysis, search, and management of multimedia data, as
well as distributed system architectures in which these techniques can be embedded to effectively
help the users. The purpose of this conference is to create an international forum to address the
research challenges and opportunities of multimedia content analysis, management and retrieval.
