WISMA 2010 Call for Papers

                           CALL for PAPERS
Workshop on Interoperable Social Multimedia Applications (WISMA 2010)
   11th International Workshop of the Multimedia Metadata Community

Submission due: 28th February 2010 - Workshop dates: 19th-20th May 2010
Workshop venue: Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona (Spain)

In the Web 2.0, a growing amount of multimedia content is being shared
on Social Networks. Due to the dynamic and ubiquitous nature of this
content (and associated descriptors), new interesting challenges for
indexing, access, and search and retrieval have arisen.
In addition, there is a growing concern on privacy protection, as a lot
of personal data is being exchanged. Teenagers (and even younger kids),
for example, require special protection applications; while adults are
willing to have a higher control over the access to content.
Furthermore, the integration of mobile technologies with the Web 2.0
applications is also an interesting area of research that needs to be
addressed; not only in terms of content protection, but also considering
the implementation of new and enriched context-aware applications.
Finally, social multimedia is also expected to improve the performance
of traditional multimedia information search and retrieval approaches by
contributing to bridge the semantic gap. The integration of these
aspects, however, is not trivial and has created a new interdisciplinary
area of research.
In any case, there is a common issue that needs to be addressed in all
the previously identified social multimedia applications: the
interoperability and extensibility of their applications. Thus, the
workshop is particularly interested in research contributions based on

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
•    Privacy in social networks
•    Access control in social networks
•    Social media analysis
•    Social media retrieval
•    Context-awareness in social networks
•    Mobile applications scenario
•    Social networks ontologies and interoperability
•    Security and privacy ontologies
•    Content distribution over social networks
•    Multimedia ontologies and interoperability
•    Multimedia search and retrieval
•    Semantic metadata management
•    Collaborative tagging
•    Interaction between access control and privacy policies
•    Social networks and policy languages
•    Policy management

Research Papers: Papers should describe original and significant work in
the research practice of related topics.
(i) Long papers: up to 8 pages, will normally be focused on research
studies, applications and experiments.
(ii) Short papers: up to 4 pages, will be particularly suitable for 
reporting work-in-progress, interim results, or as a position paper 

Applications and Industrial Presentations: Proposals for presentations 
of applications or tools, including project reports, industrial 
practices and models, or tools/systems demonstrations.
Abstract: 2 pages.

All submissions and proposals are to be in English and submitted in PDF
format at the WISMA paper submission web site
(http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wisma2010) on or before 28th
February 2010. Papers should be formatted according to LNCS style
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0). The
workshop proceedings are to be published as a volume at CEUR Workshop
Proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org).
