==========================================================================================
Call for papers: 1st International Workshop on Media fragment creation 
and reMIXing (MMIXí13)

at the 2013 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME 
2013), San Jose, California, USA, July 15-19, 2013

http://mediamixer.eu/event/mmix2013/

IMPORTANT DATES

Workshop Paper Submission: March 7, 2013 Notification of Workshop Paper 
Acceptance: April 15, 2013 Camera-Ready Paper Due: April 30, 2013

SUBMISSIONS

We encourage researchers from industry and academia to submit original 
works. Submitted manuscripts should be no longer than 6 pages, including 
all text, figures, and references. They must be formatted in standard 
IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font, letter
(8.5◊11-inch) paper) and must be submitted as PDF files.

Please note that reviewing is double blind, which means that authors do 
not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers do 
not know the names of the authors. Information that could identify the 
authors in the paper (e.g. author names, acknowledgments to co-workers 
and grant IDs) and in any supplemental material (e.g., titles in the 
movies, or attached papers) must be avoided. Also remember to avoid 
providing links to websites that identify the authors.

Accepted papers MUST be presented at the workshop by one of the authors, 
or, if none of the authors are able to attend, by a qualified surrogate.

Further information for prospective authors (including Latex/Word 
templates and detailed instructions for preserving the anonymity of the 
submissions Ė same as those for the ICME main track submissions) can be 
found on the ICME web page.

The link to the workshopís online submission system will appear here soon.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

While technologies for the manipulation of complete videos have been 
well-studied and are already used in relevant applications, e.g. in 
stock footage portals, media libraries or TV archives, where entire 
videos may be found and also purchased for re-use in new media 
production situations, these applications and markets do not permit the 
easy purchase or sale of smaller fragments of multimedia content.
Making possible the latter would have significant benefits for both the 
creators and the potentials consumers of the content, most notably in 
terms of lowering the cost associated with re-using and re-mixing 
existing pieces of multimedia content towards creating new multimedia 
experiences. Besides benefits, though, the manipulation of multimedia 
content at such a finer granularity level also presents significant 
challenges, both purely technological (e.g. with respect to the 
automatic creation of meaningful media fragments, or the extraction of 
information that can describe such fragments and make them easily
searchable) and more application-oriented ones (e.g. with respect to the 
required user interfaces, the use cases and even the business models 
associated with the re-use and re-mixing of media fragments).

This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from 
the different fields that contribute to the development of technologies 
and applications for media fragment creation and remixing, with emphasis 
both on the presentation of new supporting technologies for the creation 
and understanding of media fragments (e.g. video decomposition at 
different granularity levels; extraction of concepts, events, or textual 
descriptions that capture the meaning of specific media fragments) and 
on novel applications of such technologies for media fragment re-use and 
re- mixing in various domains, such as the traditional media industry, 
the news industry, video blogging and social media applications, and others.
Specifically, topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  - Multimedia fragmentation techniques
  - Concept detection from media fragments
  - Event detection from media fragments
  - Event recounting and textual description of media fragments
  - Media fragment description
  - Media fragment search and retrieval
  - Media fragments in the social Web
  - User interfaces for media fragment manipulation
  - Novel media fragment re-use and remixing results with commercial 
application

We invite the submission of original work in these and related areas.
The submissions should explicitly explain how they relate to the overall 
idea of media fragment creation and remixing. Each submission to the 
workshop will be peer-reviewed by at least three expert reviewers.

Workshop organizers:
  - Benoit Huet
  - Vasileios Mezaris
  - Lyndon Nixon
