Call for Papers

With the development of silicon technologies, mobile and portable electronics devices, such as personal computers, mobile phones, digital cameras, and PDA, have become ubiquitous for people's daily life. These devices provide multimedia sources for entertainment, communication, and so on. How to design user interfaces of these products that enable natural, intuitive and fun interaction is one of the main challenges the multimedia community is facing.

Considering that mobile and portable devices are usually supplied with multiple sensors (e.g., camera and microphone), how to employ multimodal information for interaction has recently received much attention in both academia and industry. But interactive multimedia is still an under-explored field. Many challenges exist when moving to multimodal interaction: for example, how to annotate and search huge data acquired by using multiple sensors, especially in the unconstrained end-user environments? how to effectively extract and select representative multimedia features for human behavior recognition? and how to select the fusion strategy of multimodal data for a given application? To address these challenges, we must adapt the existing approaches or find new solutions suitable for multimedia interaction on mobile and portable devices.

This workshop will bring together researchers from both academia and industry in domains including computer vision, audio and speech processing, machine learning, pattern recognition, communications, human-computer interaction, and media technology to share and discuss recent advances in interactive multimedia. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Multimedia description and markup
  • Multimedia representation and annotation
  • Multimedia search and retrieval
  • Presence and environment sensing
  • Face detection, tracking, and recognition
  • Hand detection, tracking, and recognition
  • Emotion/mood recognition
  • Gesture/action/activity recognition
  • Audio-visual recognition and interaction
  • Novel interaction (accelerometer, touch screen, haptics, voice, etc.)
  • Multimodal data modeling and fusion
  • Multimedia content adaptation
  • Context-aware services
  • Interaction with depth-sensing (e.g., Kinect)
