"Video Content Visualization for Improved Interactive Search"

Special Session at the 2011 ACM International Conference on Multimedia 
Retrieval (ICMR2011)
April 17-20, 2011, Trento, Italy

As the amount of recorded videos is heavily increasing every day, 
facilitating interactive search for visual content is an important topic 
in the field of multimedia. Many users employ interactive search and 
navigation in videos when they need to find specific segments or in 
order to get an overview of the video content. Interactive search tools 
enable users to perform a visual search in situations where no concrete 
query can be formulated. Furthermore, these methods can be used to 
quickly browse through the results of a query performed in a video 
retrieval application. Given the specific nature of video content, 
rather complex graphical user interfaces are required to assist users in 
their interactive information seeking task.
This session will cover tools and methods that facilitate interactive 
search in videos. Approaches that can integrate the potential knowledge 
of a user about the content to be found in order to speed-up the search 
process are of particular interest.
