We are happy to announce that the programme of the 2nd international
conference on Semantics And digital Media Technology (SAMT 2007) is
available online at

Advanced registration is also open.

SAMT 2007 targets to narrow the large disparity between the low-level
descriptors that can be computed automatically from multimedia content and
the richness

and subjectivity of semantics in user queries and human interpretations of
audiovisual media - The Semantic Gap.
SAMT brings together those forums, projects, institutions and individuals
investigating the integration of knowledge, semantics and low-level

processing, and links them with industrial research and development
engineers who exploit the underlying emerging technology.

In cooperation with the European Commission DG Information Society, the
third day of the conference will feature keynote talks from EC

The conference will be held at the Jolly Hotel Marina, December 5-7, 2007,
Genova, Italy,


SAMT 2007 solicits project poster and demo contributions that will be
presented in special sessions during the conference, giving the
opportunity to present

ongoing research. Objectives or results of active projects, initiatives or
standardization activities, reports on systems under development, or

of completed work are all welcome.

The Demo session is intended to provide a showcase for innovative
implementations, systems, and technologies related to semantic multimedia.
In principle,

posters may be backed up with demos, and vice versa. Contributions will be
evaluated based on significance of results, relevance to SAMT and expected

Posters and Demos are intended to convey a scientific result or work in
progress and not to advertise software packages!

Authors must submit by email to samt07-poster-demo@ge.imati.cnr.it up to
two-page short abstract for evaluation. Only submissions in PDF format are

acceptable. Papers should be formatted according to IEEE Proceedings
style. Authors should specify if the submission will be presented as a
demo, a poster,

or both, and clearly indicate whether the submission concerns a project
(if so, they should specify the project).
Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to the SAMT topics,
originality, potential significance and clarity.
Authors submitting a paper to the scientific track in SAMT 2007 may also
submit the same work for consideration in the poster and demo track,
either before

or after acceptance notification for the full paper.
Poster and Demo papers will be published in separate proceedings and will
be handed out to all participants of SAMT.

Important Dates

* Poster/Demo Submission: October 15, 2007
