Call For Papers

The 2nd Workshop on User-Centric Narrative Summarization of Long Videos (NarSUM)
(In conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2023, Ottawa, Canada)
Workshop Homepage:

With video capture devices becoming widely popular, the amount of video data generated per day has seen a rapid increase over the past few years. Browsing through hours of video data to retrieve useful information is a tedious and boring task. Video Summarization technology has played a crucial role in addressing this issue. It is a well-researched topic in the multimedia community. However, the focus so far has been limited to creating summary to videos which are short (only a few minutes).

This workshop aims to call for researchers on relevant background to focus on novel solutions for user-centric narrative summarization of long videos. Specifically, the goal is to provide the users with meaningful information and insights from long input videos, potentially captured from multiple cameras. Since the generated output of any video summarization task will be finally consumed by humans, it is also important to have an element of storytelling, where the resulting summary is presented in the form of a narrative for humans to understand easily. This workshop will also cover other important aspects of video summarization research like what is "important" in a video, how to evaluate the goodness of a created summary, etc.

TOPICS OF INTEREST (including but not limited to)
* Summarization of single/multiple long videos
* Action and scene graph generation from videos
* Narrative summary and video storytelling
* Datasets for long video summarization
* Novel evaluation criteria/metrics
* Novel application of long video summarization
* Open challenges in video summarization
* Privacy preserved video summarization

* Submission portal opens: June 1, 2023
* Paper submission deadline: July 22, 2023
* Acceptance notification: August 8, 2023
* Camera-ready submission: August 12, 2023

All submissions (including Work-In-Progress) must be original works not under review at any other workshop, conference, or journal. Submitted papers may consist of 6 to 8 pages, with up to two additional pages for references. Submitted papers must use the ACM Article Template and conform to the double-blind review policy. For more details, please check the submission guidelines in the workshop homepage.

A cash prize of $500 USD will be awarded as the best paper award (based on the number of submissions and accepted papers)
