Dear Semantic Web Community

If you are working on detecting, ontological modeling, reasoning or 
using events, please consider submitting to the workshop below.

It is co-located with ACM Multimedia, the world's premier multimedia 




1st ACM International Workshop on
Human-centered Event Understanding from Multimedia (HuEvent14)

conjunct with

22nd ACM Multimedia 2014, November 3-7, 2014 Orlando, Florida

* Organizers *

Ansgar Scherp, Kiel University and Leibniz Information Center for 
Economics, Kiel, Germany
Vasileios Mezaris, Centre for Research and Technology Hellas, Greece
Bogdan Ionescu, University Politehnica of Bucharest, Romania
Francesco De Natale, University of Trento, Italy

* Specific topics to be addressed and specific goals *

Events are everywhere! We find them in life-log applications and 
emergency response systems as well as in domains like cultural heritage, 
news, sports, and surveillance. Thus, we can understand events as 
natural abstraction of human experience. The different applications and 
domains make use of different methods and approaches for detecting, 
representing, and using events. However, they share the common notion of 
considering events as important entities. Events are generally 
understood as perduring entities that unfold over time. They are 
occurrences in which humans participate and may be subject to 
discussions and interpretations by humans. In contrast, objects are 
enduring entities that unfold over space. While some consider objects as 
4D entities, i.e., extending across time just as they do in space, 
others consider both events and objects as first class entities that 
require each other.

The goal of this workshop is to present and discuss the different 
aspects and notions of events and objects. This includes methods for 
detecting activities and low-level events and objects from media content 
and other sensory data. It also targets solutions and approaches for 
detecting and modeling the relationships between events and objects. 
Finally, we invite submissions of novel applications that are based on 
the notion of events and objects and that make use of events and objects 
as first-class entities.

We aim to bring together researchers from the different areas in 
multimedia and beyond that are interested in understanding the concept 
of events. We invite original work in the areas of event modeling, 
detection of events from multimedia data, processing of events, 
organization of multimedia data using events as unifying mechanism, and 
applications of these techniques. Each submission to the workshop will 
undergo a strict peer-review process and will be evaluated by at least 
three expert reviewers.

The topics of interest for this workshop include (but are not limited to):

- Discovering events and/or objects from media assets;
- Understanding objects' role in events;
- Understanding objects' interconnectivity through events;
- Understanding peoples' actions during events;
- Analysis of humans' reactions/emotions/comments to events and/or objects;
- Understanding  humans' event interaction and its evolution in time;
- Analysis of human opinion and bias on event perception;
- Analysis of human factors for event evolution, spreading and 
- Use of human behaviors for event prediction and trend analysis ("in" 
and "on" the event);
- Multiple views and multiple user event analysis;
- Multimedia for human-centered event understanding;
- Event-object oriented novel applications.
