Call for contributions

Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished research papers in the broad field of content-based multimedia indexing and applications. In addition to multimedia and social media search and retrieval, we wish to highlight related and equally important issues that build on content-based indexing, such as multimedia content management, user interaction and visualization, media analytics, etc.

The CBMI proceedings will be indexed and distributed by IEEE Xplore . Best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their contributions to a special issue of Multimedia Tools and Applications journal (MTAP).
