3rd ACM International Workshop on Events in Multimedia (EiMM11)

held in conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2011, Nov. 28 - Dec. 1, Scottsdale, Arizona, USA


Humans think in terms of events and entities. Events provide a natural abstraction of happenings in the real world. The concept of events has a long history in foundational sciences such as philosophy and linguistics. After first developing object-based and entity-based approaches, computer science research is now addressing the concept of events and building many applications that consider events at least as important as objects. Consequently, we find many different solutions and approaches for modeling, detecting, and processing events. In addition, we find different applications that are based on events and make use of events.

Existing conferences and workshops on events in computer science typically deal with the capturing, processing, and management of low-level events such as publish/subscribe-approaches and middleware-based architectures. This work is very essential for an efficient execution of the applications build on top of such approaches. On the contrary, events on domain-level are considered occurrences in the real world in which humans participate and which are subject to discussion and interpretation by humans. Events may be very complex and a variety of aspects need to be considered such as time and space, objects and persons involved, as well as mereological, causal, and correlative relationships between events.

This workshop focuses on how to detect, model, and process events and applications that make use of events in the context of multimedia data. We aim at bringing together researchers from the different fields that are interested in understanding the concept of events. We invite original work in the areas of event modeling, detection of events from multimedia data, processing of events, organization of multimedia data using events as unifying mechanism, and applications of these techniques. The submissions should explicitly explain how they deal with the events of the considered domain and what kind of benefit is provided to the users by using events. Example application areas for events are multimedia-based experience sharing, lifelogs, emergency response, cultural heritage, news, surveillance, and others.

Research topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

• Event Detection and Processing in Multimedia Data
--- Recognition of events from large scale, unreliable and/or noisy media data and media streams
--- Event clustering towards domain level-events
--- Combining low-level events with domain-level events
• Event Representation and Event Models
--- Modeling of events on domain-level
--- Ontology-based representation of events
--- Languages for events
--- Formal modeling of events, activities, accomplishments, achievements, context, and other related concepts
--- Reasoning with events under consideration of causality, uncertainty, similarity, and others
--- Semantic description and annotation for events and event sources
• Events in the Context of Web 2.0
--- Collaborative event creation and sharing
--- Events in social networks
--- Event syndication (e.g., RSS) and attention management
• Architectures for Event Management
--- Middleware solutions for event management
--- Event-driven architectures
--- Experimental methodologies
--- Domain-specific solutions for event management such as for emergency response
• Applications and Tools
--- Interactive event-based applications and tools
--- (Collaborative) authoring of events
--- Events in mobile computing and ubiquituous computing
--- Applications that show benefits of using events in practical settings
--- User experience, requirements, use cases, and evaluations of event-based applications

Submissions to the workshop must be made in PDF format and follow the ACM MM 2011 workshop paper format guidelines. The maximum paper length is 6 pages (in ACM format). Detailed paper formatting and submission instructions can be found at:
