Last CFP: Second International Workshop on Linked Media (LiME 2014) @ ESWC 2014 (deadline extension until March 14th)

   CFP: Second  International Workshop on Linked Media (LiME 2014)

The workshop is co-located with the ESWC 2014 conference held in 
Heraklion, Greece on 25-29 May 2014.

  - Submission deadline: March 14, 2014, 23:59PM Hawaii Time
  - Notifications: April 1, 2014, 23:59PM Hawaii Time
  - Camera ready version: April 15, 2014, 23:59PM Hawaii Time

Goals of the workshop:

If the future Web will be able to fully use the scale and quality of 
online media, a Web scale layer of structured and semantic media 
annotation is needed, which we call *Linked Media*. Drawing on the 
success of the Linked Data movement, we believe annotation of media 
using Linked Data concepts can be the basis for Web-wide media 
interlinking based on concept matching and relationships.

This 2nd international workshop on Linked Media (LiME'2014), building on 
last year's successful event held at WWW 2013, aims at promoting the 
principles of Linked Media on the Web by gathering semantic multimedia 
and Linked Data researchers to exchange current research and development 
work on creating conceptual descriptions of media items, multimedia 
metadata publication on the Web, and its semantic processing, particular 
based on Linked Data approaches to concept matching and relationships. 
Specifically, we aim to build a research community to promote a future 
Web where automated multimedia analysis results can be used as a basis 
to integrate Linked Data-based conceptual annotations into structured 
media descriptions, which can be published and shared online. When media 
descriptions are more easily findable and processable, new applications 
and services can be created in which online media is more easily shared, 
retrieved, re-used and re-purposed. This will offer a wide range of 
possibilities for various stakeholders in the creative industries.

Workshop topics and themes:

To push further the evolution of the Rich Media Web, and to facilitate 
its convergence with the Semantic Web, it is essential to establish 
consensus on online media annotation standards, the use of semantics in 
describing what media represents, and demonstrate approaches to leverage 
such structured and semantic media descriptions in Web applications. 
While non-textual content is often now the first destination of online 
agents rather than HTML/textual resources, and thus access to structured 
annotation of the online media is increasingly important for new Web 
applications capable of media search, retrieval, adaptation and 
presentation, the online media annotation space is still limited, 
fragmented and lacking in consensus for building Web tools and 
interfaces to support it.

LiME'2014 focuses on identifying the key building blocks required to 
foster the development of new Web tools and interfaces that will support 
the growth and re-use of Linked Media, which is inspired by the Linked 
Data movement for making structured descriptions of resources more 
easily available online.

The workshop topics include, but are not limited to:
* Approaches to online media descriptions
   - Tools and approaches aligning the fragmented approaches to online 
media description, its processing and publication, e.g. based around 
Linked Data, W3C Media Ontology and Media Fragments URI.
   - Tools and approaches to search and retrieval of online media based 
on its structured description, scaling to the Web
   - Tools and approaches addressing issues of trust, quality and rights 
of online media
* Extracting and linking
   - Tools and approaches to lower the cost of creating structured 
descriptions of online media resources
   - New methods of automatic, real time, metadata extraction of any 
online media content (including live streams)
   - Ideas how to incorporate Linked Data into media description (and 
benefit from the additional metadata of the Linked Data cloud)
   - New methods for automatically assessing the suitability of 
(non-trusted) content for interweaving (e.g. violence detection, nudity 
detection), and publishing such assessments
* Showcases, business models and assessment
   - New Web applications making use of Linked Media (across different 
platforms) including evaluation with end-users and/or suitable business 
   - Approaches to tracking user interaction with media (and exploiting 
this knowledge to enrich annotations)

The workshop is sponsored by the EU projects LinkedTV 
( and MICO ( as well 
as the large open source community around Apache Stanbol 
( & Apache Marmotta 


Submissions should not exceed 12 pages and are to be formatted according 
to Springer LNCS guidelines 
( and 
submitted to 
Papers should be submitted in PDF format. We encourage various types of 
   - full papers (max 12 pages) for mature work which has been subject 
to evaluation
   - demo submissions (max 5 pages) for demos, software and platforms 
which may be able to support a part of the Linked Media ecosystem
The workshop proceedings will be published online through CEUR-WS. A 
selection of the best papers from the workshop will also appear in an 
LNCS companion volume of ESWC 2014.
