                             CALL FOR PAPERS
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                 First International Workshop on
     Multimedia Analysis and Uncertainty Representation (MAUR)
                     Half Day Workshop
              http://image.ntua.gr/events/maur/web/
 
 
               First International Conference on
     Semantic and Digital Media Technologies (6-8 December 2006)
         Wednesday December 6 2006 &#8211; Athens, Greece

 DESCRIPTION Multimedia processing like analysis and retrieval are
 inherently difficult tasks. In order to assist multimedia
 processing algorithms and applications, researchers are proposing
 ways to enrich multimedia algorithms with knowledge
 representational formalisms. In this way the multimedia processing
 techniques could take advantage of formal representation and
 automated reasoning methods.
 
 On the other hand multimedia processing algorithms are usually
 facing a huge amount of uncertain and imprecise knowledge. Hence
 knowledge representational formalisms must be equipped with
 mechanisms that are able to cope with such type of knowledge.
 
 The last couple of years a quite impressive number of uncertainty
 handling formalism have been developed, like fuzzy and
 probabilistic Description Logics, fuzzy, possibilistic and
 probabilistic Logic Programming languages etc. Such logical
 formalisms combine expressive power and decidable reasoning
 techniques.

 The use of such formalisms in multimedia applications would
 greatly benefit these applications and will provide new research
 results.
 
 TOPICS
  Multimedia Content Representation and Reasoning.
  Image and Video Analysis with Uncertainty Reasoning.

 IMPORTANT DATES
 
 Full Paper Submission: September 10, 2006
 
 Acceptance Notification: October 1, 2006
 
 Camera-Ready Papers due: November 2, 2006
 
 Conference: December 6, 2006
 
 SUBMISSION
 
 Each submission will be evaluated for acceptability by at leasttwo
 members of the Program Committee. Decisions about acceptance will
 be based on relevance to the above topic list, originality,
 potential significance, topicality and clarity. Since all accepted
 papers will be presented at the workshop, we require that at least
 one of the submitting authors must be a registered participant at
 the SAMT 2006 Conference, and committed to attend the MAUR
 Workshop.
 
 MAUR 2006 welcomes  the submission of two kind of papers:
 
  short position paper (2 pages maximum in Springer LNCS format),
  giving a brief description of an on-going implementation,
  algorithm or system.
 
  full papers (8 pages maximum in Springer LNCS format), good original
  research and application papers of the topics of the workshop.
 
 Papers must be submitted directly by email in PDF format to
 gstoil@image.ece.ntua.gr prior to the paper submission deadline.
 
 Paper submissions must be formatted in the style of the Springer
 Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
 For complete details, see Information for LNCS Authors.
 
 All papers selected by the program committee will be published by
 provided by the SAMT.
 
 All papers accepted will be presented during the workshop. This
 would include 20 minutes presentation (15 minutes presentation + 5
 minutes discussion) for full papers, while authors of accepted
 position papers will have a 5-minute slot to share their ideas.
