[Apologies for cross-postings. Please forward this mail to anyone interested.] DEADLINE FOR PAPER SUBMISSION IS JUNE 4TH ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ CALL FOR PAPERS Second international conference on Semantics And digital Media Technology (SAMT 2007) Former European Workshop on the Integration of knowledge, semantic and digital Media Technologies (EWIMT) December 5-7, 2007 Genova, Italy http://samt2007.ge.imati.cnr.it/ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ OBJECTIVES ---------- The international conference on Semantics And digital Media Technologies (SAMT) targets to narrow the large disparity between the low-level descriptors that can be computed automatically from multimedia content and the richness and subjectivity of semantics in user queries and human interpretations of audiovisual media - The Semantic Gap. SAMT started out as two workshops, EWIMT 2004 and EWIMT 2005, that quickly achieved enormous success in attracting high-quality papers and over 100 participants from across Europe and beyond. Last year EWIMT turned into the full-fledged conference SAMT, addressing integrative research on new knowledge-based forms of digital media systems. SAMT brings together those forums, projects, institutions and individuals investigating the integration of knowledge, semantics and low-level multimedia processing, and links them with industrial research and development engineers who exploit the underlying emerging technology. In cooperation with the European Commission DG Information Society, the third day of the conference will feature keynote talks from EC representatives. TOPICS ------ Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: * Integration of multimedia processing and Semantic Web technologies * Multimedia ontologies and infrastructures * Knowledge assisted multimedia analysis and access * Knowledge based inference for semi-automatic semantic media annotation * Integration of content-based multimedia analysis with natural language and speech processing * Multimodal techniques, high dimensionality reduction and low-level feature fusion * Revelance feedback for finding semantics * Semantic-driven multimedia indexing and retrieval * Metadata management for multimedia * Browsing large multimedia archives * Scalable, semantic-driven multimedia content adaptation and summarization * Interfaces and personalisation for interaction with large multimedia repositories * Social tagging, ontologies and multimedia content * Semantics-driven multimedia presentation generation * Context, user, network and semantics-aware media engineering * Standards bridging the multimedia and knowledge domains PAPER SUBMISSION ----------------- Original contributions should be submitted electronically according to the instructions that will be posted to the conference web site. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes of Computer Science series (LNCS). Full papers are expected to be 12-14 A4 pages and should present previously unpublished original results that are not simultaneously submitted elsewhere. The accepted full paper contributions will be presented during the plenary sessions and will appear in the conference proceedings. Short papers are expected to be 4 A4 pages at most. The accepted short papers will be included in the proceedings as extended abstract and presented as posters during the conference. Prospective contributors are invited to submit their papers on-line according to the guidelines at http://samt2007.ge.imati.cnr.it. Information for LNCS Authors at http://www.springer.com/east/home/computer/lncs?SGWID=5-164-7-72376-0 Submissions will open in May 2007.
