CALL FOR PAPERS, Workshop on Social Events in Web Multimedia (SEWM-14)

http://mklab2.iti.gr/sewm14/

at the 2014 ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval (ICMR), 
Glasgow, UK, April 1 - 4, 2014

http://www.icmr2014.org/

****************************************************************************************

The modeling, detection and processing of events is an area that has 
started to receive considerable attention by the multimedia community. 
This Workshop 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 
in ways more effective and more natural to the users.

This workshop 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 analysis and 
retrieval" areas.

The submission to this workshop is open to all potential authors. 
Submitted papers must be formatted according to the ACM conference
