Multimedia indexing systems aim at providing user-friendly, fast and accurate access to large multimedia repositories. Various tools and techniques from different fields such as data indexing, machine learning, pattern recognition, and human computer interaction have contributed to the success of multimedia systems. In spite of significant progress in the field, content-based multimedia indexing systems still show limits in accuracy, generality and scalability. The goal of this special issue is to bring forward recent advances in content-based multimedia indexing.
This call is related to the CBMI 2018 international conference but is open to all contributions on a relevant topic, whether submitted to CBMI 2018 or not. Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished research papers in the broad field of content-based multimedia indexing and related applications. For papers submitted as extended version of CBMI 2018, at least one third of the work should be previously unpublished.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Semantic multimedia analysis
  • Summarization and semantic abstraction of multimedia content
  • Multimedia content characterization and classification
  • Metadata generation, coding and transformation;
  • Multimodal and cross-modal indexing and retrieval

  • Multimedia recommendation
  • Multimedia analysis and indexing beyond semantics, e.g. affect, sentiment, interest
