ACM Workshop on Educational Multimedia & Multimedia Education
(EMME 2007) in conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2007
Sept 28, 2007, Augsburg, Germany

The question about how multimedia can really make learning more
exploratory and enjoyable is as yet unanswered. We are just beginning to
understand the real contribution of multimedia to education. In
addition, new trends, such as multimedia on handheld devices or advanced
approaches for the automatic analysis of multimodal signals, offer novel
and exciting opportunities for teaching and learning. The goal of this
workshop is thus to identify current and evolving trends, specify open
problems, and discover challenges and prospects for new research in the
broad topic of multimedia-based education.

We invite contributions on any kind of education-related technology
where new media are involved. Truly innovative research on a single
media is welcome as well. We are interested in innovative ideas, work in
progress as well as in contributions about existing and established

TOPICS OF INTEREST include, but are not limited to:

General educational multimedia applications, e.g.:
* Repurposing and reuse of educational multimedia material
* Authoring and content creation process
* Classroom note taking and whiteboard analysis
* Automated analysis of participant interactions in lectures &
* Indexing and multimedia information retrieval for educational uses
* Intelligent search and navigation in e-learning portals
Semantic Computing, e.g.:
* Speech and handwriting recognition
* Image and video understanding
* Text and natural language understanding
* Automatic classification and categorization
Human-Computer Interaction, e.g.:
* New input devices
* Interface design for educational applications
* New interaction styles and paradigms
* Knowledge and information visualization
* Interfaces for "intellig. classrooms" & ubiquitous computing
* Usability issues
* Personalization
Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing, e.g.:
* Mobile learning applications and services
* Integration of mobile devices into wired learning environments
* Mobile collaborative learning
* Visualization for information access
* Delivery of educational material on handheld devices

SUBMISSIONS: Short paper submissions should be up to 4 pages in ACM
format. Accepted contributions will be presented at the workshop as
posters in a special poster session. Demo submissions should contain an
extended abstract for publication in the proceedings (1-2 pages in ACM
format) as well as a short, informal description of the demo itself, the
required hardware, etc.
Accepted demos will be presented during the poster session. It is the
responsibility of the authors to provide the required hardware for their
demos. Both kinds of contributions will be published in the workshop
proceedings as well as the ACM Digital Library.
