Workshop on Interoperable Social Media Applications (WISMA 2010)

11th International Workshop of the Multimedia Metadata Community

19th-20th May 2010, Barcelona, Spain

General Information:

In the Web 2.0, a growing amount of multimedia content is being shared  
on Social Networks. Due to the
dynamic and ubiquitous nature of this content (and associated  
descriptors), new interesting challenges
for indexing, access, and search and retrieval have arisen.
In addition, there is a growing concern on privacy protection, as a  
lot of personal data is being exchanged.
Teenagers (and even younger kids), for example, require special  
protection applications; while adults are
willing to have a higher control over the access to content.
Furthermore, the integration of mobile technologies with the Web 2.0  
applications is also an interesting
area of research that needs to be addressed; not only in terms of  
content protection, but also considering
the implementation of new and enriched context-aware applications.
Finally, social multimedia is also expected to improve the performance  
of traditional multimedia
information search and retrieval approaches by contributing to bridge  
the semantic gap. The integration
of these aspects, however, is not trivial and has created a new  
interdisciplinary area of research.
In any case, there is a common issue that needs to be addressed in all  
the previously identified social
multimedia applications: the interoperability and extensibility of  
their applications. Thus, the workshop
is particularly interested in research contributions based on standards.

It is the 10th International Workshop of the Multimedia Metadata  


Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

     * Privacy in social networks
     * Access control in social networks
     * Social media analysis
     * Social media retrieval
     * Context-awareness in social networks
     * Mobile applications scenario
     * Social networks ontologies and interoperability
     * Security and privacy ontologies
     * Content distribution over social networks
     * Multimedia ontologies and interoperability
     * Multimedia search and retrieval
     * Semantic metadata management
     * Collaborative tagging
     * Interaction between access control and privacy policies
     * Social networks and policy languages

We invite the following types of contributions:

Research Papers:
Papers should describe original and significant work in the research  
and industrial practice of related topics.
    (i) Long papers: up to 8 pages, will normally be particularly  
focused on research studies,
      applications and experiments
    (ii) Short papers: up to 4 pages, will be particularly suitable  
for reporting work-in-progress,
      interim results, or as a position paper submission.

Applications and Industrial Presentations:
Proposals for presentations of applications and tools, including  
reports on the application and utilisation of
tools, industrial practices and models, or tool/system demonstrations.  
Abstract: 2 pages.

All submissions and proposals are to be in English and submitted in  
PDF format at the WISMA paper
submission website on or before 28th February 2010. Papers should be  
formatted according to LNCS
style. The workshop proceedings are to be published as a volume at
