***************************************************************

Large amounts of multimedia material, such as images, audio,
video, and 3D/4D material, as well as computer generated 2D, 3D,
and 4D content, already exist and are growing at increasing rates.
While these amounts are growing, managing distribution of and
access to multimedia material is becoming ever harder, both for
lay and professional users.

The SAMT Special Issue of Multimedia Tools and Applications is
going to tackle these problems by investigating the semantics
and pragmatics of multimedia generation, management, and user
access. It aims to attract scientifically valuable research
tackling the semantic gap between the low-level signal data
representation of multimedia material and the high-level meaning
that providers, consumers, and prosumers associate with the content.

We welcome innovative solutions that consider some or all factors
in the process of multimedia generation and consumption, including
methods from low-level signal processing up to the mobile context
in which a user operates.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

1) SEMANTIC ANALYSIS AND MULTIMEDIA
	a) Knowledge assisted multimedia analysis
	b) Content-based multimedia analysis linked with natural
	   language and speech processing

2) SEMANTIC RETRIEVAL AND MULTIMEDIA
	a) Semantic-driven multimedia indexing and retrieval
	b) Semantic retrieval of 3D objects
	c) Machine Learning and relevance feedback for finding
	   semantics
	d) Semantic-driven multimedia content adaptation and
	   summarisation

3) SEMANTIC METADATA MANAGEMENT OF MULTIMEDIA
	a) Metadata management for multimedia
	b) Multimedia ontologies and infrastructures
	c) Standards bridging the multimedia and knowledge domains
	d) Linked data principles for multimedia

4) SEMANTIC USER INTERFACES FOR MULTIMEDIA
	a) Interfaces and personalisation for interaction with large
	   multimedia repositories
	b) Semantic media annotation
	c) Inference and machine learning for semi-automatic annotation
	d) Browsing multimedia archives
	e) Device-specific access to and adaptation of multimedia

5) SEMANTICS IN VISUALIZATION AND COMPUTER GRAPHICS
	a) Illustrative depiction and rendering
	b) Mapping meaning to presentation content
	c) Smart virtual environments
	d) Supporting knowledge discovery

6) APPLICATIONS OF SEMANTIC MULTIMEDIA
	a) Social multimedia tagging
	b) Context, user, network and semantics-aware media engineering
	c) Multimedia mash-ups
	d) Case studies with clear, innovative lessons learned

7) SEMANTIC ANALYSIS AND VISUALISATION IN MEDICINE
	a) Semantic analysis of medical images
	b) Semantic visualisation of medical data
	c) Computer-aided diagnosis

8) MINING OF SOCIAL MEDIA
	a) Network analysis and social structures detection in Web 2.0
	b) Ontology learning on and in the Web 2.0
	c) Discovering (cross system) associations, large social
	   networks and communities
	d) Predicting trends and user behaviour (e.g. misuse and fraud/spam)
	e) Multimedia analysis; audio/visual processing; aggregating
	   information from different modalities
