Special Issue on Semantic Multimedia



In the new millennium Multimedia Computing plays an increasingly important role
as more and more users produce and share a constantly growing amount of 
multimedia documents. The sheer number of documents available in large media 
repositories or even the World Wide Web makes indexing and retrieval of 
multimedia documents as well as browsing and annotation more important tasks 
than ever before. Research in this area is of great importance because of the 
very limited understanding of the semantics of such data sources as well as the
limited ways in which they can be accessed by the users today. The field of
Semantic Computing has much to offer with respect to these challenges. This 
special issue invites articles that bring together Semantic Computing and 
Multimedia to address the challenges arising by the constant growth of
