Apologize for multiple postings.

*Call for Technologies for a JPEG ontology for still image description 
(JPOnto). *

The JPEG group (ISO/IEC JTC1 SC29/WG1) has launched a call for 
contributions for an ontology for still image description. JPEG is 
looking for technologies that enable the description of digital still 
images with technical, administrative and semantic metadata compliant 
with the RDF standard and the principles of Linked Data. JPEG is 
interested in ontologies that help circumventing the current 
proliferation of vocabularies for image description by providing a core 
set of terms and relationships, thus facilitating the cross-community 
data integration of information related to digital images. The call puts 
an special focus on ontologies providing a rich set of constructs for 
semantic visual content description, including, but not limited to, a 
uniform description of identities, features, aspect, relationships, 
actions and emotional information of people appearing in the images, as 
well as description of events, locations and objects.

Individuals or organizations with expertise in multimedia metadata 
engineering, computer vision, ontology engineering and/or knowledge 
representation are encouraged to provide inputs to the JPEG committee. 
Proposals into this effort (including partial proposals and reports of 
experimental investigations) are strongly encouraged and will be 
evaluated and formalized through the work of JPEG. With this purpose, 
interested parties and stakeholders are also encouraged to participate 
in the 60th JPEG meeting in Incheon, Korea (22nd - 26th April 2013).

Deadline: Proposals should be sent by 22nd March 2013

The complete call with more details about requirements and submission 
instructions can be found in JPEG document wg1n6235. A copy can be found 
here <http://dmag.ac.upc.edu/downloads/documents/wg1n6235_CfT_Ontology.pdf>.
