aspects of content-based multimedia indexing for retrieval, browsing,
management, visualization and analytics. After 16 successful editions of
the CBMI workshop, CBMI became a conference in 2017 and the next edition
will take place in Dublin, Ireland in September 2019. The scientific
program will include invited keynote talks and regular, special and demo
At this time we invite you to propose special sessions for CBMI 2019.
Special sessions are mini-venues, each focusing on one state-of-the-art

Special session papers, which can be invited or submitted, will supplement
the regular research papers and be included in the proceedings of CBMI 2019.
Special session proposals must be submitted by email to the special session
chairs ([log in to unmask]) using subject “CBMI 2019 Special Session

community interest of the topic/proposed potential papers. Required details
for proposals are described below.
Usually, each special session should be comprised of four to five papers,
which can be invited, or regular submissions. In order to ensure the high
