		Multimedia and the Semantic Web 
 
  		Invitation for participation
 	29 May 2005, to be held as part of ESWC05 (www.eswc2005.org)

This one day workshop on Multimedia and the Semantic Web aims to bring
together researchers and practitioners in the multimedia and Semantic
Web domains in order to assist in forming bridges between the
communities for mutual benefit.  
 
This workshop features invited papers from keynote speakers Guus
Schreiber and Monica Schraefel, as well as peer-reviewed papers
examining the interaction of Semantic Web and multimedia technologies,
with a balance of topics from the perspective of the Semantic Web and
from the perspective of multimedia applications. 
 
Multimedia community participants are invited to benefit from the
workshop in discovering how Semantic Web technologies can be used to
increase the value of image, video and multimedia assets, for example by
the use of ontologies and reasoning to assist with multimedia analysis,
or identification means to facilitate content location.  
 
Semantic Web researchers are encouraged to join the workshop to benefit
from the presentation of results from multimedia based research, which
demonstrate important applications which could be enhanced by Semantic
Web technologies.
 
We anticipate some significant debate owing to differences in opinions
about approaches to take in solving the relevant joint problems, and we
invite you to join the workshop to give your views on these subjects.
