ESWC05 Workshop: Multimedia and the Semantic Web (with apologies for x-posting)

Call for papers: one day workshop

29 May 2005

to be held as part of the 2nd European Semantic Web Conference,
Heraklion, Crete
29 May to 1 June 2005

This one day workshop on Multimedia and the Semantic Web aims to bring
together researchers and practitioners in the multimedia and Semantic
Web domains in order to assist in forming bridges between the
communities for mutual benefit.  European Commission part-funded
projects such as aceMedia are already investigating means to draw
benefits from both domains in order to enable advances in multimedia
processing from use of Semantic Web techniques, and to create new
multimedia applications in order to enhance the value of the Semantic
Web. In addition, programmes such as the SDK project cluster are
investigating the application of semantic web technology to knowledge
management, web services and eBusiness. It is therefore timely to bring
together researchers and practitioners from these two complementary and
closely related areas.

The workshop will include invited papers and peer-reviewed papers
received from this Call for Workshop Papers.

Papers are invited on subjects including (but not limited to):

*	Knowledge driven multimedia content analysis and understanding
*	Semantic media creation and processing tools 
*	Semantic browsing, indexing and retrieval of multimedia content
*	Knowledge based inference for semantic media annotation 
*	User adaptation and relevance feedback 
*	Language extensions for multimedia
*	Multimedia ontologies
*	Reasoning on multimedia data
*	Knowledge driven multimedia applications and systems
*	User evaluations of intelligent multimedia applications
*	User Interface design for knowledge driven multimedia
applications and systems
