Recent years have witnessed a growing number of user-centric  
multimedia applications, especially with the popularity of web 2.0.  
Examples include Flickr, YouTube, Facebook, MySpace, Orkut,, etc. The emerging applications on social web and  
social networks have produced a new type of multimedia content, termed  
as "social media" here as it is created by people using highly  
accessible and scalable publishing technologies for sharing via the  
web. With social media, web images, videos and audios are generally  
accompanied by rich contextual information, such as, tag, category,  
title, metadata, comments, and viewer ratings, etc. Massive emerging  
social media data offer new opportunities for resolving the long- 
standing challenges in multimedia understanding, e.g., the semantic  
gap issue. This new media also introduces many challenging and new  
research problems and as well as many exciting real-world applications  
(e.g. social image search, social group recommendation, etc.). This  
workshop solicits novel contributions on various aspects of social  
media research. Workshop papers will elaborate related theory,  
methodology, algorithms and issues associated to social media content  
creation, manipulation, content analysis, storage, search, learning,  
and mining.

The workshop is open to any research topic related to social media.  
Specifically, topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Theory and methodology for modeling of social media
* Social context-based media content analysis
* Web driven media creation
* Collaborative filtering and recommendation systems for social media
* Organization, indexing and navigation of multimedia content
* Behavior analysis in social media networks
* Multi-modality fusion for heterogeneous social media content
* Interactive/collaborative image, video and audio search in web  
* Machine learning and data mining methods for social media content
* Large scale image,  video and audio classification with social  
contextual cues
* Image, video and audio recommendation in social networks
* Social media-based advertisement
* Social network enablement via media
* Privacy and security issues in social media (e.g. media watermarking)


Each submission should be up to 8 pages (additional pages can be  
approved upon request) in English and must follow the standard ACM  
style guidelines. At the conclusion of the workshop, we will announce  
the best paper award. The best paper selection criteria will include  
both technical reviews and quality of oral presentation.
