                         *CALL FOR PAPERS*
       *2nd International Workshop on Socially-Aware Multimedia*
              In conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2013
                  21 Oct 2013, Barcelona, Spain 

 Submission Due: June 29, 2013
 Author Notification: July 21, 2013

*Aims and Scope*

Multimedia social communication is filtering into everyday use. Videoconferencing is appearing in the living room and beyond, television is becoming smart and social, and media sharing applications are transforming the way we converse and recall events. The confluence of computer-mediated interaction, social networking, and multimedia content are radically reshaping social communications, bringing new challenges and opportunities. 

This workshop provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to share novel and groundbreaking results on socially-aware multimedia. With special emphasis on innovative directions and on brave ideas, the final goal is to recognize an emergent inter-disciplinary area at the conjunction of multimedia research, social science, and human-computer interaction. In particular, we are interested in papers that focus on multimedia systems and applications, accounting for social interaction theories, metrics, and methodologies. We acknowledge the inter-disciplinary nature of the workshop, and encourage participation from different research disciplines. 

We are soliciting high quality submissions to present new and daring ideas, question established paradigms and unwritten rules, and introduce new and original research directions.

*Topics of Interest*

Topics include, but are not limited to:

--Applications of socially-aware multimedia

--Interactive end-to-end systems

--Multimedia modelling (in particular for social interaction and shared experiences)

--Socially-Aware multimedia content analysis and understanding

--Collaborative authoring of videos and multimedia sharing

--Social interaction theories and metrics

--Field trials and user studies of socially-aware multimedia applications

--Qualitative and quantitative evaluation of social participation

--Micro-Blogging and multimedia information retrieval

--Distributed peer synchronization and consumption

--Multimedia-Enabled social networking

--Socially-Aware multimedia architectures 

*Paper Submission*

The workshop is looking for short submissions (position statements) of at most 4 pages long prepared in the ACM style and written in English (in PDF format). All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 members of the program committee. Each paper will be evaluated based on the relevance, novelty, and scientific contribution. The workshop proceedings will be printed by ACM and indexed in the ACM DL.

Your manuscript must be submitted in appropriate format using the ACM Multimedia submission website at:
