5th International Workshop on Multimedia Information Retrieval
November 7, Berkeley, CA, USA
in conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2003

Website: http://carol.wins.uva.nl/~nicu/MIR/


The explosion of multimedia content in databases, broadcasts, streaming
media, etc. has generated new requirements for more effective access
to these global information repositories. Content extraction,
indexing, and retrieval of multimedia data continues to be one of
the most challenging and fastest-growing research areas.

Following the success of the four previous MIR workshops held in
conjunction with the ACM Multimedia Conferences, the purpose of the
5th International Workshop on Multimedia Information Retrieval
(MIR 2003) is to bring together researchers, developers, and
practitioners from academia and industry to discuss issues in
retrieving multimedia information from libraries, databases, and
streaming media sources. We are soliciting high quality
original papers which address a range of issues in multimedia
information retrieval including, but not limited to:

* Content-based indexing, search, and retrieval of multimedia data
* Multimedia data modeling and visualization
* Automated semantic annotation
* Metadata for multimedia retrieval
* Multi-modal human-computer interaction
* Query languages and query processing for multimedia retrieval
* Multimedia and media mining
* User perspectives and user modeling for multimedia retrieval
* Semantic content analysis
* Intelligent agents for multimedia indexing and retrieval
* Tools, benchmarks, and standards
* Multimedia retrieval for pervasive devices
* New media types and new applications
* Multi-modal event detection and recognition
* Multi-modal/Multi-sensor fusion techniques
* Indexing and retrieval from streaming media
* Issues in high performance multimedia databases
