CALL FOR JOURNAL PAPERS (http://vls-mcmr10.eurecom.fr/mu.cfp.v19n3.pdf)

Large-Scale Multimedia Data Collections


Submission Deadline: 1 October 2011
Publication Issue: July-September 2012

Pivotal to many tasks in relation to multimedia research and development is
the availability of a sufficiently large data set and its corresponding
ground truth. Currently, most available data sets for multimedia research
are either too small, such as the Corel or Pascal data sets; too specific,
such as the Text Retrieval Conference Video (Trecvid) data set; or without
ground truth, such as the recent efforts by the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology and Microsoft Research Asia that gathered millions of Web images
for testing. While it's relatively easy to crawl and store a huge amount of
data, the creation of ground truth necessary to systematically train, test,
evaluate, and compare the performance of various algorithms and systems is a
major problem. For this reason, more and more research groups are
individually putting efforts into the creation of such corpus to carry out
research on large-scale data sets. There is a need to unify these individual
efforts into the creation of a unified Web-scale repository that would
benefit the entire multimedia research community.

The purpose of this special issue is to present and report on the
construction and analysis of large-scale multimedia data sets and resources,
and to provide a strong reference for multimedia researchers interested in
large-scale multimedia data sets. The issue will specifically address the
construction of data sets; the creation of ground truths; the sharing and
extending of such resources in terms results and analysis related to ground
truth, features, algorithms, and tools.

The IEEE MultiMedia special issue on large-scale multimedia data collections
solicits original papers that will be of interest for IEEE MultiMedia
readers. The list of possible topics includes, but is not limited to:

- Construction, unification, and evolution of corpus: the state of use, the
lessons learned, and their impact, scalability of results, and range of
- Framework for sharing of data sets, ground truths, features, algorithms,
and tools, as well as comparison and analysis of results.
- Large-scale corpus analysis techniques: knowledge mining from large-scale
multimedia corpus, optimization techniques on large-scale multimedia data
for efficiency, and techniques for large-scale, content-based multimedia
- Performance evaluation methodologies and standards.
