MDM/KDD2003 : The Fourth International Workshop on Multimedia Data Mining
(http://research.it.uts.edu.au/emarkets/mdmkdd2003/ currently updating)

in conjunction with 

KDD-2003: 9th ACM SIGKDD International Conference on  Knowledge Discovery & Data Mining August 24 - 27, 2003, Washington, DC, USA (http://www.acm.org/sigkdd/kdd2003/)
(August 24th, 2003)

MDM/KDD2003 WORKSHOP THEME : Integrated Media Mining


The workshop will address issues specifically related to mining information from multi-modality, multi-source, multi-format data in an integrated way. Many analysis domains collect data from several sources, including static databases, streaming data, web pages, or conditionally collected data.  Data appear in multiple forms, including structured, numeric, free text, video, image, speech, or combinations of several types. Analysis in these domains requires combining of techniques and integrating methods. Examples include using Text Mining to generate structured features that can be further used by Data Mining in conjunction with existing structured data, or combining information mined from a photo image with text data, meta-data, and web links to other pages.
On the other hand, researchers in multimedia information systems, in the search for techniques for improving the indexing and retrieval of multimedia information are looking into new methods for discovering indexing information. Variety of techniques from machine learning, statistics, databases, knowledge acquisition, data visualization, image analysis, high performance computing, and knowledge-based systems, have been used mainly as a research handcraft activity. The development of multimedia databases and their query interfaces recall again the idea of incorporating multimedia data mining methods for dynamic indexing. The emerging international standard for multimedia content description (MPEG-7) promises to foster the collaboration in the field giving a uniform data representation.
The aim of the workshop is to contribute in finding suitable answers to the following questions:
- What are the theoretical foundations of multimedia data mining?
- What are the problems and applications where multimedia data mining can have severe impact?
- What are the advanced architectures of multimedia data mining systems?
- What are the specific issues raised in integrated patterns extraction from multimedia data and its components, including images, sound, video, and other non-structured data?
- What are suitable multimedia representations and formats that can help data mining in multimedia data?

The major topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:
- Integrated mining of different data formats (text, speech, video, structured, image, relational data)
- Combining mining results from different sources
- Integrated mining methods for eBusiness
- Combined mining methods for engineering and manufacturing
- Integrated mining for Homeland Security
- Mining of data streams combined with structure data
- Visual data mining of multi-format/ Multimedia data
- Multi-relational Data Mining. The focus is on mining data residing in relational databases.
- Visual data mining of multi-format/multimedia data.
- Theoretical frameworks for multimedia data mining.
- Multimedia data mining methods and algorithms.
- Multimedia data sampling and preprocessing. 
- Data visualization and sonification.
- Representation and reuse of discovered knowledge.
- Multimedia data descriptions languages and formats.
- Evaluation of interestingness, novelty and validity of results.
- Topic and event detection in multimedia data (including video).
- Extracting semantics from multimedia databases.
- Mining scientific multimedia data.
- Integrated data mining in multimedia information systems.
- Knowledge discovery in facial data.
- Man-machine interfaces for multimedia data mining.
- Complexity, efficiency and scalability of multimedia data mining algorithms.
- Data mining virtual communities and virtual worlds.
- Data mining in collaborative virtual environments and virtual reality systems.
- Visual and audio support for multimedia mining.
- Visual data mining of multimedia data.
- Multi-agent environments for concurrent mining of heterogeneous data.
- Real-time multimedia data mining systems.
- Using MPEG-4 and MPEG-7 standards for multimedia data mining.

We encourage submissions of greenhouse work, which present early stages of a cutting-edge research and development. Software demonstrations are welcome.
