Call for papers - First Workshop on “Search as Learning with Multimedia Information” (SALMM), 21 October, 2019 
@ ACM Multimedia Conference 2019, Nice, 21 - 25 October

*SALMM Workshop* – Call for Papers (

Search as learning (SAL) is a recent research topic that emerged in the field of information retrieval. It investigates informal, web-based learning processes as they happen every day with the help of search engines. While highly active, the SAL domain still shows a strong focus on textual documents. This conflicts with research on multimedia learning in educational psychology: Humans tend to grasp and internalise new knowledge easier and more efficient when it is conveyed using multiple modalities. Thus, future SAL research will have to include multimedia aspects to enhance human learning. The workshop SALMM invites submissions which contribute to bridge the gap between the fields of Search as Learning, Multimedia and Educational Psychology, covering topics such as (but not limited to):

• search as Learning with multimedia / multimodal data
• analysis of informal learning processes based on multiple modalities
• detection of learning intent, knowledge gain etc. via usage of multimedia / multimodal data
• psychological studies on multimedia SAL aspects (controlled lab setting, crowdsourcing, etc.)
• search as learning in semi-informal settings at universities or schools
• transferring techniques from multimedia retrieval to search as learning scenarios
• emotions and multimedia in SAL scenarios
• multimodal aspects of resource and user modelling
• transfer of techniques for web-based and mobile learning support to informal learning

We are very happy to present our keynote speaker Ladislao Salmerón, who will talk about: 
“Search interfaces and learning about controversial topics”

Submissions (via Easychair should present either a novel technical, or psychological, or conceptual contribution. Papers with preliminary experimental results are welcome. Full papers are expected to have a length of six to eight pages, short or demo papers are limited to four pages (ACM style, double column).  

*Important Dates*
Paper submission: July 8
Acceptance notification August 5
