                                       Multimedia Information Retrieval

                                                      ACM MIR-2010
                                                      Call for Participation

Call for Participation

Early registration period finishes February 5th 2010

Multimedia information retrieval is a cross-cutting field. Extending
beyond the borders of culture, art, and science, the search for digital
information is one of the major challenges of our time. Digital libraries,
bio-computing & medical science, the Internet and social networking sites,
streaming video, multimedia databases, cultural heritage collections and
P2P networks have created a worldwide need for new paradigms and techniques
on how to browse, search and summarize multimedia collections and more
generally how to afford efficient multimedia content consumption.

The 11th ACM International Conference on Multimedia Information Retrieval
(MIR) is the premier scientific meeting for discussing the latest advances
in the area of multimedia retrieval. MIR 2010 is on its second year as a
full ACM conference, following nine successful years as a workshop held in
conjunction with the ACM Multimedia Conference. The growth of MIR is a result
the growing importance of multimedia content in our lives.
