CALL FOR PAPERS, Special Session on Social Events in Web Multimedia

at the 2012 ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval (ICMR), 
Hong Kong, Jun. 5 - 8, 2012.



The modeling, detection, and processing of events is an area that has 
started to receive considerable attention by the multimedia community. 
This Special Session aims to attract and present the latest developments 
and results on the discovery of social events from web multimedia 
content, and on techniques for the detection and retrieval of media 
items that are related to such social events. By social events, we refer 
to events that are planned by people, are attended by people, and are 
represented by multimedia and in general social media content that is 
captured by people. A lot of the multimedia content out there on the Web 
has been captured during such an event (e.g. a concert, a football game, 
an uprising) or is otherwise related to and conveys information about a 
social event. However, this content is often scattered, i.e., is 
disassociated from the related events. This, together with the 
observation that humans often think in terms of events, generate the 
need for automatically detecting such events from multimedia content. 
Furthermore, they generate the need for automatically establishing the 
event-media associations that will allow multimedia browsing and search, 
as well as social media understanding, in a way that is more complete 
and more natural to the users.

Manuscript preparation and submission:

This special session welcomes high-quality papers describing original 
research in all areas related to Social Events in Web Multimedia, 
especially papers at the intersection of the “event detection from 
multimedia”, “event-based multimedia retrieval” and “social media
