                          *CALL FOR PAPERS*
        *International Workshop on Socially-Aware Multimedia*
               In conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2012

                   29 Oct - 2 Nov 2012, Nara, Japan

*Aims and Scope*

Multimedia social communication is filtering into everyday use. 
Videoconferencing is appearing in the living room and beyond (e.g., 
FaceTime, SkypeTV, Umi), television is becoming smart and social (e.g., 
Boxee, GoogleTV, GetGlue), and media sharing applications are 
transforming the way we converse and recall events (Twitter, Facebook, 
YouTube). The confluence of computer-mediated interaction, social 
networking, and multimedia are radically reshaping social 
communications, bringing new challenges and opportunities.

This workshop provides an opportunity to explore socially-aware 
multimedia, in which the social dimension of mediated interactions 
between people are considered as important as the characteristics of the 
media content. Even though this social dimension is implicitly addressed 
in some current solutions, further research is needed to better 
understand what makes a good socially aware application. In other words, 
social interactivity needs to become a first class citizen of multimedia 
research. Relevant insights can be found within a number of disciplines 
such as multimedia research, human-computer interaction, and sociology. 
In particular, multimedia research provides quantitative metrics 
regarding multimedia objects (e.g., precision and recall) and multimedia 
systems (e.g., delay, jitter). Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research 
incorporates both quantitative metrics and qualitative understanding 
regarding human perception (e.g., quality of experience); and sociology 
and communication science provide a better understanding about 
motivations and collective group behaviour (e.g., conversational and 
interaction patterns, strength of interpersonal ties)

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.

format) prepared in the ACM style and written in English. 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.
