Rich Media

Rich media data, such as video, imagery, and music, do no longer play just a supporting role to text data. On the contrary, on sites such as Flickr and YouTube, rich media is the primary content. Thanks to the phenomena of user generated content, the volume of rich media being transmitted on the Internet has surpassed that of text. It is vital to properly manage media data to ensure efficient bandwidth utilization, to support effective index and search, and to safeguard copyrights, just to name a few. This rich media track encourages contributions dealing with Web-scale media-data management on the following relevant topics:

  • Indexing and retrieval of Web rich-media content
  • Tagging of rich-media data
  • Scalable machine learning and data mining techniques for media data analysis
  • Applications of Web rich media: biomedicine, education, entertainment, animation, art, cultural studies, etc.
  • User interface, virtual environments, authoring, multi-modal interaction
  • Rich media systems: protocols, content delivery, integration, synchronization, wireless, etc.

Paper formatting requirements will be provided on the submissions page.
