In cooperation with GI, ACM, IEEE, and Eurographics.

Proposals are invited for the tutorial program of the 3rd
International Conference on Semantics And Digital Media Technology
(SAMT 2008). Tutorials will be held on 3rd December 2008.

Objectives and Topics

As the volume of multimedia material grows, so do the problems
of managing distribution of and access to multimedia content.
The SAMT conference series addresses these problems from the
perspective of semantics and pragmatics of multimedia generation,
management and user access. As well as research papers, the
conference programme also includes tutorials and workshops.

The purpose of the tutorial program is to provide an audience
of both postgraduate students and senior researchers with a
comprehensive overview of the latest research in the complementary
fields of multimedia analysis and the Semantic Web, with emphasis
on cross-disciplinary approaches. Tutorials should provide the
audience with the opportunity to gain deeper insights into the
important challenges to be addressed in these traditionally
disparate fields, and thereby provide motivation for future
interdisciplinary research. We seek high quality proposals
for tutorials on topics including but not limited to:

 1) Semantic Analysis and Multimedia
 2) Semantic Retrieval and Multimedia
 3) Semantic Metadata Management of Multimedia
 4) Semantic User Interfaces for Multimedia
 5) Semantics in Visualization and Computer Graphics
 6) Applications of Semantic Multimedia
Submitting a Proposal

Tutorial proposals can be submitted in any format (PDF, Word,
text). Proposals should be no more than 2 pages in length and
should contain the following information (note that tutorials
will be 1/2 day long):

 1) The title and a brief technical description of the tutorial,
    outlining the goals and the technical content it targets.
 2) A brief description of why and to whom the tutorial is of
    interest, i.e. the target audience.
 3) A list of related tutorials/courses/lectures held in the
    last 3 years, or to be held in 2008.
 4) The contact information (web page & email address) of the
    proposed organizers and a short bio for each highlighting
    relevant experience.

Tutorial attendees will be required to pay the SAMT 2008
tutorial registration fee, in addition to the standard conference
registration fee. Please send your proposals by 16th June 2008
and any inquiries by email to samt-workshop-chair@uni-koblenz.de .


The 3-day-conference gives us the opportunity to take part in
various additional activities such as: industrial exhibition,
social events, excursions, etc. The conference will take place
in Koblenz, a 2000-year-old town situated in the picturesque
landscape of the Rhine and Moselle. The region of Koblenz is
also famous for its excellent wines.
