                         *CALL FOR PAPERS*
             IS&T and SPIE International Conference on
       *Multimedia Content Access: Algorithms and Systems V*

  23 - 27 January 2011, Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport Hotel
              San Francisco, California United States


*Aims and Scope*

Modern computer technology has brought multimedia to the limelight as a
new communication form, quite possibly the first original communication
form of the computer age. Today, "being multimedia" is a real
possibility for almost any online computer user, and the communicative
possibilities that will ensue from this fact will have an impact in a
wide range of fields. To benefit from this potential, developers need
reliable techniques for the analysis, search, and management of
multimedia data, as well as distributed system architectures in which
these techniques can be embedded to effectively help the users. The
purpose of this conference is to create an international forum to
address the research challenges and opportunities of multimedia content
analysis, management and retrieval.

*Paper Submission*

Papers covering original material should be at least 6 pages long and
contain a text summary (200 words maximum) suitable for early release.
Manuscripts should be formatted according to the SPIE template specified
Your manuscript must be submitted in appropriate format using the SPIE
submission website at:

To ensure a high-quality conference, all submissions will be assessed by
the program committee for technical merit and suitability of content.
Publication of your manuscript on SPIE Digital Library offers worldwide
access within 2 to 4 weeks after the meeting.
