Call for Papers

CBMI aims at bringing together the various communities involved in all aspects of content-based multimedia indexing for retrieval, browsing, management, visualization and analytics.
After 15 successful editions of the CBMI workshop, the event is now becoming a conference whose next edition will be held in La Rochelle, France.
The scientific program will include invited keynote talks and regular, special and demo sessions.
Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished research papers in the broad field of content-based multimedia indexing and related applications. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Multimedia content characterization and classification
  • Metadata generation, coding and transformation;
  • Multimodal and cross-modal indexing and retrieval
  • Mobile and social media analysis and retrieval
  • Multimedia recommendation
  • Multimedia analysis and indexing beyond semantics, e.g. affect, sentiment, interest
  • Personalization of multimedia content access
  • Interactive multimedia indexing and retrieval
  • Evaluation and benchmarking of multimedia retrieval systems
  • Applications of multimedia indexing and retrieval, e.g. in medicine, lifelogs, satellite imagery, video surveillance and culture

Authors are invited to submit full length (6 pages – to be presented as oral presentation) and short papers (4 pages – to be presented as posters).
