Geotagging and Its Applications in Multimedia
Workshop at ACM Multimedia 2012
October 29, 2012, Nara, Japan

***Submission deadline (extended): July 2, 2012 ***

In recent years, the rise of wide-spread use of GPS sensors and the increasing availability of open geographical databases has motivated a large volume of work on geotagging. The increase in the use of geotagging and improvements in geo-location support systems open up a new dimension for the description, organization and manipulation of multimedia data. This new dimension radically expands the usefulness of multimedia data both for daily users of the Internet and social networking sites as well as for experts in particular application scenarios.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together cutting-edge research in geotagging as well as novel applications related to geotagging. It will help facilitate in-depth discussions, share existing tools, and ultimately enhance the research efforts in this area. The workshop will serve as a forum for the presentation and synthesis of vision and insight from leading experts and practitioners on the developing directions of geotagging research related to multimedia.

Collection and estimation of geotags
Location estimation: inferring geolocation from visual and audio cues
Mining unstructured web text (e.g., news, blogs) for location
Knowledge discovery from open geographical databases (e.g., Google earth, GeoNames) and web photos
Mining geotags from mobile devices and sensor network
Applications of geotagging
Photo and video annotation
Business applications (e.g., geomarketing, targeted advertising, recommendation, etc.)
Social networking
Privacy and security issues
Visualization of geotagged information
3D construction of world model
Visualization of tourism, travel routes, and other spatial-temporal patterns

Workshop submissions of 4-6 pages should be doubled blinded and formatted according to the ACM Multimedia author kit. Submission system link:
