*AMR 2009 - 7th International Workshop on Adaptive Multimedia Retrieval*

              * Deadline for paper submission: July 20, 2009 *

                         September 24-25, 2009
    Universidad Nacional de Educacion a Distancia, Madrid, spain

The main reasons for undesired steps in multimedia search are on the one
hand, the users' difficulty in specifying their interests in the form of
a well-defined query, and on the other hand, the problem of extracting
relevant (semantic) features from the multimedia objects. To improve
today's retrieval tools and thus the overall satisfaction of a user, it
is necessary to develop new techniques able to support the user in the
interactive retrieval process. Currently, especially Multimedia
Interaction and Dialogue Management techniques as well as affect
detection for multimedia content and others are currently promising
research directions.

The Adaptive Multimedia Retrieval workshop aims to bring researchers,
practitioners and companies with specific focus on existing and novel
techniques into the field of multimedia retrieval. The goal of this
workshop is therefore to intensify the exchange of ideas, to provide
an overview of current activities in this area and to point out
connections between multimedia, retrieval and artificial intelligence
research communities.

Topics of interest:

The workshop focuses especially on researchers that are working on:
feature extraction techniques for multimedia, computer linguistic
approaches, (dynamic) data analysis methods, interactive machine
learning and visualisation methods as well as user interface design.
Therefore, contributions to the workshop should focus on, but are not
limited to:

- Multimedia retrieval systems (for text, image, audio, video and
- Theoretical foundations of multimedia retrieval and mining
- Intelligent multimedia data modelling, indexing and structure
- Adaptive Hypermedia and web based systems
- Metadata for multimedia retrieval
- Multimedia and multi-modal mining
- Semantic content analysis for multimedia
- Multimedia Interaction and Dialogue Management
- Sentiment Analysis and Affect Detection for Multimedia Content
- Soft Computing in Multimedia Information Retrieval
- Adaptive query languages
- Similarity measures (especially user adaptive measures)
- User and preference modelling (including feedback models)
- Methods for adaptive data visualisation and user interfaces

Important Dates:

July 20th, 2009 Deadline for paper submission
August 17th, 2009 Notification of acceptance/rejection
September 4th, Final paper submission
