                            CALL FOR PAPERS



                First International Workshop on

    Multimedia Analysis and Uncertainty Representation (MAUR)

                    Half Day Workshop




              First International Conference on

    Semantic and Digital Media Technologies (6-8 December 2006)

        Wednesday December 6 2006 - Athens, Greece



DESCRIPTION Multimedia processing like analysis and retrieval are

inherently difficult tasks. In order to assist multimedia

processing algorithms and applications, researchers are proposing

ways to enrich multimedia algorithms with knowledge

representational formalisms. In this way the multimedia processing

techniques could take advantage of formal representation and

automated reasoning methods.


On the other hand multimedia processing algorithms are usually

facing a huge amount of uncertain and imprecise knowledge. Hence

knowledge representational formalisms must be equipped with

mechanisms that are able to cope with such type of knowledge.


The last couple of years a quite impressive number of uncertainty

handling formalism have been developed, like fuzzy and

probabilistic Description Logics, fuzzy, possibilistic and

probabilistic Logic Programming languages etc. Such logical

formalisms combine expressive power and decidable reasoning



The use of such formalisms in multimedia applications would

greatly benefit these applications and will provide new research




 Multimedia Content Representation and Reasoning.

 Image and Video Analysis with Uncertainty Reasoning.



 Multimedia Information retrieval.

 Scene Interpretation.

 Automatic Annotation.

 Classification and indexing of multimedia information objects.




****Full Paper Submission: September 15, 2006****


Acceptance Notification: October 1, 2006


Camera-Ready Papers due: November 2, 2006


Conference: December 6, 2006




Each submission will be evaluated for acceptability by at leasttwo

members of the Program Committee. Decisions about acceptance will

be based on relevance to the above topic list, originality,

potential significance, topicality and clarity. Since all accepted

papers will be presented at the workshop, we require that at least

one of the submitting authors must be a registered participant at

the SAMT 2006 Conference, and committed to attend the MAUR



MAUR 2006 welcomes  the submission of two kind of papers:


 short position paper (2 pages maximum in Springer LNCS format),

 giving a brief description of an on-going implementation,

 algorithm or system.


 full papers (8 pages maximum in Springer LNCS format), good original

 research and application papers of the topics of the workshop.


Papers must be submitted directly by email in PDF format to

gstoil@image.ece.ntua.gr prior to the paper submission deadline.


Paper submissions must be formatted in the style of the Springer

Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

For complete details, see Information for LNCS Authors.


All papers selected by the program committee will be published by

provided by the SAMT.


All papers accepted will be presented during the workshop. This

would include 20 minutes presentation (15 minutes presentation + 5

minutes discussion) for full papers, while authors of accepted

position papers will have a 5-minute slot to share their ideas.
