=================================================================
CFP: Third International Workshop on Linked Media (LiME 2015)
http://www.linkedtv.eu/event/LiME2015/
=================================================================

This full day workshop is co-located with the WWW 2015 conference held 
in Florence, Italy on 18-22 May 2015.

*Deadlines*:
- Submission deadline: Jan 24, 2015 (23:59 Hawaii Standard Time)
- Paper acceptance notification: Feb 22, 2015
- Paper final copy hard deadline: Mar 8, 2015

*Goals of the workshop*:
If the future Web will be able to fully use the scale and quality of 
online media, a Web scale layer of structured media annotation is 
needed, which we call Linked Media. This 3rd international workshop on 
Linked Media (LiME 2015), building on two successful events, aims at 
promoting the principles of Linked Media on the Web by gathering 
semantic media researchers, media owners, and media service providers to 
exchange current research and development work on online media 
description creation, publication, and processing. Specifically, we aim 
to promote the core principles of Linked Media and explore their value 
through demonstrations: the online publication of structured media 
descriptions, making media more easily shared, queried and re-used. This 
will offer a wide range of possibilities for various stakeholders in the 
creative industries.

Of specific relevance to the WWW community is the fact LiME offers a 
platform to demonstrate application of the work in and inform ongoing 
working groups in this area: Web&TV Interest Group and Presentation API 
working group (dealing with multimedia in HTML5) and the W3C Annotations 
working group (focusing on the Open Annotation Model). There’s great 
value of encouraging cross-fertilization between these working groups 
and with the broader WWW community.

*Workshop topics and themes*:
Today’s Web is a rich media Web - non-textual content is often now the 
first destination of online agents rather than HTML/textual resources. 
As a result, access to structured annotation of the online media is 
increasingly important for new Web applications capable of media search, 
retrieval, adaptation and presentation. Yet, the online media annotation 
space is still limited, fragmented and lacking in consensus for building 
Web tools and interfaces to support it. The W3C Ontology for Media 
Resources provides mappings between 18 different multimedia metadata 
schema or standards and established a first step towards a common schema 
model which now requires championing in the research and industry 
communities. The least common denominator approach followed by the W3C 
group has lead to a small and useful vocabulary that fails to support 
more advanced use cases that require to describe the multimedia content 
at a fragment level and beyond simple tagging. We see opportunity in the 
uptake of the Open Annotation Model within a W3C Annotations WG and want 
to promote its usage for media description combined with Linked Data.

If the future Web will be able to fully use the scale and quality of 
online media, a Web scale layer of structured media annotation is 
needed, which we call Linked Media, which is inspired by the Linked Data 
movement for making structured descriptions of resources more available 
online. Mobile and tablet devices, as well as connected TV introduce 
novel application domains that benefit from broad understanding and 
acceptance of Linked Media standards. LiME 2015 aims at promoting the 
principles of Linked Media on the Web by gathering media owning 
stakeholders and semantic media researchers to exchange current research 
and development work on online media description creation, publication, 
and processing.

Important aspects to discuss revolve around (1) emerging approaches to 
online media description, (2) extracting such descriptions and linking 
them to external resources, and (3) showcasing practical use cases in 
this domain, also covering interaction aspects for single and group users.

The workshop topics include, but are not limited to:
1. Approaches to online media descriptions & annotation
- Aligning the fragmented approaches to online media description, its 
publication, and processing;
- Tools and approaches to lower the cost of creating structured 
descriptions of online media resources;
- New methods of automatic, real time, metadata extraction of any online 
media content (including live streams);
- Ideas how to incorporate Linked Data into media description (and 
benefit from the additional metadata of the Linked Data cloud);
- Use of the Open Annotation model for describing online media.
2. Methods for enriching and hyperlinking media
- Tools and approaches to search and retrieval of online media based on 
its structured description, scaling to the Web;
- New methods for automatically assessing the suitability of 
(non-trusted) content for interweaving (e.g. violence detection, nudity 
detection), and publishing such assessments;
- Methods and tools for automatically link media to media at the 
fragment level, including evaluation on standard corpora such as MediaEval;
- Addressing issues of trust, quality and rights of online media;
3. Presentation, interaction, evaluation and new business models for 
Linked Media
- New Web applications making use of Linked Media, also across different 
platforms;
- Evaluations of innovative services with end-users;
- Approaches to tracking user interaction with media (and exploiting 
this knowledge to enrich annotations);
- Emergence of new business opportunities.

*Submission*:
Submissions should not exceed 6 pages and are to be formatted according 
to the ACM SIG proceedings template 
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates) and 
submitted to https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lime2015. 
Papers should be submitted in PDF format. We encourage various types of 
submission:
- full papers (max 6 pages) for mature work which has been subject to 
evaluation
- demo submissions (max 2 pages) for demos, software and platforms which 
may be able to support a part of the Linked Media ecosystem
The workshop proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Online 
LIbrary as part of the companion volume of the WWW proceedings.
