FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

Contextualized Usage and Attention Metadata: Towards Unobtrusive Context
Creation and Usage in enriched Platforms (TUCCUP)

Karlsruhe, Germany, 26-27 September 2011

Organised by the 7th International and Interdisciplinary Conference on
Modeling
and Using Context 2011

AIM & TOPICS

Recent years have brought advances in content analysis techniques for
multimedia content. However, the "semantic gap" is still present. The levels
of
performance obtained for text-based search and recommendation are not yet
fully
scalable to more complex interactive environments including multiple
applications, devices or resource types such as image/audio/video. To
currently
understand the nature, quality and/or relevance of a resource in a specific
context, analyzing the content alone might not be sufficient. Other sources
of
information have to be taken into account as well. This includes the context
of
resources, attention paid to it and actions taken on it by users.

Information about the attention users give to resources and how they are
used
(e.g. number of streaming accesses on a video in a period, the type of tasks
being executed while using a resource, at which time a resource is accessed,
whether a video is watched completely or not, from which country ratings are
made, etc.) can be used to improve retrieval relevance, to help recommend
resources, or simply to identify the respect context of the user in which
the
task is being carried out. To be useful, this information needs to be first
systematically collected into potentially large datasets. There are open
challenges on how to store this information, how to aggregate and merge it
over
heterogeneous systems, how to distill the data into information and then
into
knowledge about the resources and how to use this knowledge to build or
enhance
multimedia applications.

The objective of this workshop is to research content- and user-centric as
well
as context-aware methodologies, technologies and systems for tracking and
managing usage and attention metadata from different applications.

The workshops invites papers dealing with the following topics. Please note
that, as the research field has by no means reached a mature state, papers
of
ongoing work are very much welcome!

Topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not restricted to:
Capture
and aggregation of usage and attention metadata for resources; Recommender
systems to assist users in finding relevant content based on usage and
attention metadata; Frameworks for the management of usage and attention
metadata for heterogeneous resources; Creating semantic information from
user
attention; Contextualization of multimedia resources; Social aspects, such
as
ownership, privacy and business models for the capture and use of usage and
attention metadata; Applications that use usage and attention metadata,
including but not limited to applications in science, engineering,
humanities,
business, public safety, commerce, and technology enhanced learning.

Regarding usage and attention metadata itself, this workshop is aimed also
to
be a place to discuss the technological and social challenges in capturing,
storing and using attention information. Efficient and scalable ways in
which
this information could be shared between different tools and systems is one
of
the main technological issues to be dealt with. On the social side, the
acceptance that different ownership/exploitation approaches have with end
users
and investors will determine the success or failure of attention
metadata-based
applications. Researchers and practitioners confronting these topics are
among
the desired attendance of this workshop.

IMPORTANT DATES

20 June 2011: Submissions
16 July 2011: Notifications
1 August 2011: Camera-ready of accepted papers
26/27 September 2011: TUCCUP Workshop in Karlsruhe


SUBMISSIONS

The Workshop accepts a variety of submission types:
Full papers: 12 pages
Short papers: 6 pages
System/service demos: 2 pages

Papers should be original and not previously submitted to other venues. But
papers may describe ongoing work, thereby enabling the discussion of
research
activities not yet mature for presentation at a conference.

Submission will be available through the EasyChair submission system:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tuccup11

If you haven't an EasyChair account yet, you'll be asked to create it before
you can access the TUCCUP'11 page.

PUBLICATION

Accepted papers will be published online as part of the CEUR Workshop
proceedings series. CEUR-WS.org is a recognized ISSN publication series,
ISSN
1613-0073.

In addition, authors of best full papers will be invited to submit a revised
version of their manuscripts for a Special Issue in a prestigious
international
journal such as the ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems.

ABOUT Context 2011

The Seventh International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and
Using Context (CONTEXT'11) will provide a forum for presenting and
discussing
high-quality research and applications on context. The conference invites
researchers and practitioners to share insights and cutting-edge results
from
the wide range of disciplines concerned with context, including: the
Cognitive
Sciences (Linguistics, Psychology, Computer Science, Neuroscience), the
Social
Sciences and Organizational Sciences, and all application areas, including
Medicine and Law.  See http://context-11.teco.edu/ for details.
