International Workshop on
Ontologies for Multimedia Interpretation and Retrieval

1-3 December, 2010
Saarbruecken, Germany

Collocated with SAMT-2010: the 5th International Conference on Semantic
and Digital Media Technologies ||


Invited Speakers:

Yiannis Kompadsiaris, Informatics and Telematics Institute,
Thermi-Thessaloniki, Greece
Cees Snoek (to be confirmed), Intelligent Systems Lab, University of
Amsterdam, Netherlands


One of the challenging issues in the field of multimedia analysis is to
extract high-level semantics from a document. As opposed to the domain of
analysis and indexing of textual documents, the visual domain has to face
the important challenge of matching human interpretations of image
information with the numerical image signature derivable by a computer,
defined as the semantic gap problem. Bridging the semantic gap has spurred
continued interest recently, in particular concerning the explicit
representations of a priori knowledge. In many domains, ontologies are
gradually being accepted as the key technology to describe the semantics
of information. In the multimedia domain, they have shown to be a
promising solution for making semantics explicit.

As a consequence, many multimedia ontologies have been built either to
assist multimedia search and retrieval or to navigate in large multimedia
collections. These ontologies are usually only hierarchically structured
multimedia concept lexicons (or thesauri), rarely used as formal models
that support different kinds of reasoning (through description logics) or
engineering operations (ontology building, ontology matching, ontology
evolution and dynamics, modularization, etc.). Although an integral part
of other research fields, such as text analysis, the full exploitation of
ontologies for multimedia analysis is still largely unexplored.

The goal of this workshop is to gather three communities of researchers
working in close, yet quite disconnected areas, related to semantic image
interpretation: i) Image annotation and retrieval, ii) knowledge-based
image analysis and iii) ontological engineering and reasoning including
fundamental work on description logics or conceptual graphs.


Topics of Interest:

? Representations and merging of cross-media semantics;
? Common ontologies and knowledge-based models for image (multimedia)
? Ontology-based image annotation;
? (Multimedia) Ontology management:
? development,
? integration,
? matching,
? maintenance,
? modularization,
? and evolution;
? Description logics for multimedia representation and analysis;
? Standard and non-standard semantic reasoning for image (multimedia)
? Image semantics ground truth databases;
? Multimodal representations of multimedia content;
? Machine learning approaches for the linguistic description of visual
? Contextual knowledge modeling for image annotation including folksonomies.


Submission Guidelines:

* Long Papers (up to 12 pages)
* Short Papers (up to 8 pages)

Submissions should be formatted to LNCS style and submitted as PDF files.
The workshop proceedings will be published as a volume at CEUR Workshop
Proceedings. Selected papers will form the basis of a special issue of the
journal "Applied Ontology".

Please, send submissions to the workshop directly to the workshop chairs
using the following emails:
