MULTIMED2021: Multimedia and Multimodal Analytics in the Medical Domain and Pervasive Environments, Special Session in the 27th International Conference on Multimedia Modeling (MMM 2021), Prague, Czech Republic, January 25-27, 2021.

- Submission deadline: July 12, 2020
- Notifications: September 20, 2020
- Camera ready version: October 18, 2020

This special session aims at presenting the most recent works and applications in the area of multimedia analysis and digital health solutions in medical domains and pervasive environments. More specifically, multimedia research is becoming more and more important for the medical domain, where an increasing number of videos and images are integrated in the daily routine of surgical and diagnostic work. This includes management and inspection of the data, visual analytics, as well as learning relevant semantics and using recognition results for optimizing surgical and diagnostic processes. At the same time, pervasive technologies and eHealth systems seem to offer a promising solution for accessible and affordable self-management of health problems. Specifically, multiple layers of intelligence could transform wearable devices, smart home equipment and multimedia information into meaningful behavioral monitoring, including activity recognition. In turn, trends and patterns can be highlighted while the user model and situation can deliver intuitive, personalised and context-aware spoken feedback. This special session provides the opportunity to discuss specific research and technical topics in the aforementioned areas, sharing their results and practical development experiences in the fields.

Research topics of interest for this special session include, but are not limited to:
- Multimedia indexing and retrieval for multimodal interaction in the health domain
- Multimedia indexing and retrieval with video recordings from medical endoscopy
- Multimodal conversation and dialogue systems for social companion agents
- Speech and audio analysis and retrieval
- Video content exploration in endoscopic video
- Speech and audio analysis and retrieval for health applications
- Fusion of multimodal information for health and care-giving applications
- Semantic web approaches for multimedia health applications
- Semantic Web technologies in eHealth, mHealth, uHealth, Ambient Assisted Living and medical applications
- Semantic reasoning of health multimedia data in interactive systems
- Semantically-enriched situation awareness in smart homes
- Semantic interoperability in IoT platforms, sensors, mobile and wearable devices in pervasive environments
- Knowledge modelling, interpretation, context-awareness in pervasive environments
- Activity recognition based under uncertainty, noise and incomplete data
- Multimodal analytics for human machine interaction in the health domain
- Web and social media retrieval for knowledge-based social companion applications
- Multimodal conversation, dialogue systems and personal coaches
- Facial analysis and gesture recognition in social agents
- Intelligent user interfaces for multimedia retrieval
- Multilingual and multimodal communication in interactive basic care and health assistive systems

Special session papers will supplement the regular research papers and be included in the proceedings of MMM 2021. For more information on submitting a paper to the special session, please visit the Author guidelines page of the main MMM conference (
