Call For Papers

International ACM Workshop on Crowdsourcing for Multimedia

held in conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2013
Oct 21 - Oct 25 2013
Barcelona, Spain

The power of crowds -- leveraging a large number of human
contributors and the capabilities of human computation -- has
enormous potential to address key challenges in the area ofZZ
multimedia research. Applications range from the exploitation of
unsolicited user contributions, such as using tags to aid
understanding of the visual content of yet-unseen images, to
utilizing crowdsourcing platforms and marketplaces like Amazon's
Mechanical Turk and CrowdFlower, which micro-outsource tasks such
as semantic video annotation to a large population of workers.
Further, crowdsourcing offers a time- and resource-efficient
method for collecting large volumes of input for system design
and evaluation, making it possible to optimize multimedia systems
more rapidly and to address human factors more effectively.

CrowdMM 2013 solicits novel contributions to multimedia
research that make use of human intelligence, but also take
advantage of human plurality. We will especially encourage
contributions that propose solutions for the key challenges that
face widespread adoption of crowdsourcing paradigms in the
multimedia research community. These include: identification of
optimal crowd members (e.g., user expertise, worker reliability),
providing effective explanations (i.e., good task design),
controlling noise and quality in the results, designing incentive
structures that do not breed cheating, adversarial environments,
gathering necessary background information about crowd members
without violating privacy, controlling descriptions of task.
Particular emphasis will be put on contributions that
successfully combine human and automatic methods in order to
address multimedia research challenges.

This workshop encourages theoretical, experimental, and
methodological developments advancing state-of-the-art knowledge
of crowdsourcing techniques for multimedia research and novel
applications using crowdsourcing to solve traditional challenges
in multimedia research. Topics include, but are not limited to
the use of crowds, wisdom of crowds, or human computation in
multimedia, in the following areas of research:

- Creation: content synthesis, authoring, editing, and
collaboration, summarization and storytelling

- Evaluation: evaluation of multimedia signal processing
algorithms, multimedia analysis and retrieval algorithms, or
multimedia systems and applications

- Retrieval: analysis of user multimedia queries, evaluating
multimedia search algorithms and interactive multimedia

- Annotation: generating semantic annotations for multimedia
content, collecting large-scale input on user affective

- Human factors: designing or evaluating user interfaces for
multimedia systems, usability study, multi-modal environment,
human recognition and perceptions

- Novel applications (e.g., human as an element in the loop of

- Effective Learning from crowd-annotated or crowd-augmented

- Quality assurance and cheat detection

- Economics and incentive structures

- Programming languages, tools and platforms providing enhanced

- Inherent biases, limitations and trade-offs of crowd-centered

CrowdMM 2013 welcomes submissions of full papers, as well as
short papers reporting work-in-progress. Full papers must be no
longer than 6 pages (inclusive of all figures, references and
appendices). Short papers are 2 pages, and will be presented as
Posters in an interactive setting.

All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted
according to the ACM Proceedings style. They must contain no
information identifying the author(s) or their organization(s).
Reviews will be double-blind. Papers will be judged on their
relevance, technical content and correctness, and the clarity of
presentation of the research.

Detailed of the submission procedures will soon be available on our

Accepted full and short papers will appear in the ACM Multimedia
2013 Workshop Proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.
Outstanding workshop papers will qualify for submission in
extended form for a fast-track review at IEEE Transactions on
