Call For Papers

The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on Data Semantics for Multimedia Systems and Applications (DSMSA2009)

held in conjunction with
The IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM2009)
December 14-16, 2009
San Diego, California, USA

Outstanding papers will be invited for extension and publication in a special issue of Multimedia Tools and Applications (MTAP) published by Springer

In the last decades, substantial progress has been made in content analysis, multimedia streaming, and human-centered computing to facilitate the development of large-scale multimedia systems. Together with the recent progress on semantic web, scalable machine learning, and multi-modal interaction, it is now possible to build a new generation multimedia applications that enable large-scale semantic representation, analysis, and delivery of multimedia data from heterogeneous data sources. However, there is still a long way to go for mature solutions of multimedia database systems that are capable of processing semantics-rich, large-volume multimedia data. It could be even more challenging if such systems are under stringent functional and non-functional (e.g., QoS) requirements.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers in multimedia semantic computing and provide a forum for multidisciplinary research opportunities, with a focus on how to apply the semantic technologies to the acquisition, generation, transmission, storage, processing, and retrieval of large-scale multimedia information. Discussions on future challenges in multimedia information manipulation, as well as practical solutions for the design and implementation of multimedia database software systems are also encouraged.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to practical areas that span a variety of aspects of multimedia semantic computing including

* Automatic generation of multimedia presentations
* Semantic multimedia metadata extraction
* Annotation tools and methods for multimedia semantics
* Media ontology generation/learning/reasoning
* Content-based multimedia analysis
* Social media computing
* Web-scale multimedia mining and retrieval
* Multimedia indexing, searching, and retrieving
* Multimedia streaming
* Multimedia data visualization
* Semantic-based QoS control and scheduling
* Semantic-based Internet data streaming and delivery
* Multimedia standards (e.g., MPEG-7 and XMP) and Semantic Web
* Semantics enabled multimedia applications (including annotation, browsing, storage, retrieval, and visualization)
* Semantics enabled networking and middleware for multimedia applications
* Service Infrastructure, technology, and tools for Multimedia software systems

Paper Submission and Publication

Papers must be original and not submitted to or accepted by any other conference or journal. An electronic version (PDF format) of the full paper should be submitted by the paper submission deadline to the workshop website ( All submissions will be acknowledged. Submitted manuscripts should not exceed six (6) pages in IEEE two-column format, including figures, tables, and references.

Each paper will be peer reviewed by at least two experts in the topical area. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and will be indexed by EI.

Outstanding papers will be invited for extension and publication in a special issue of Multimedia Tools and Applications (MTAP) (Springer) and will be indexed by both SCI and EI.

Important Dates

Paper submission deadline: July 22, 2009 (Extended!)

Notification of acceptance: August 31, 2009

Camera-ready copy and author registration: September 25, 2009
