HCM 2006 1st International Workshop on Human-Centered Multimedia in
conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2006
Santa Barbara, CA, USA, October 27, 2006



This multidisciplinary workshop will focus on the multimedia aspects of
Human Centered Computing and introduce key concepts, discuss theoretical
frameworks and technical approaches, challenges, research opportunities, and
open issues in multimedia interaction, content analysis, and content
production. We invite researchers and designers from various disciplines to
submit original technical contributions and provocative position statements
to explore and define radical ways in which Human-Centered Multimedia can
revolutionize computing. In order to break away from the traditional
workshop format, a strong emphasis will be placed on discussions leading to
specific goals set by the workshop organizers.
We seek technical contributions and position statements in the three main
human activities in multimedia: interaction, content analysis, and content
production. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
 Multimodal interaction (body, gaze, gesture, audio and speech) for the
human-computer-interaction and the computer-in-the-human-interaction loops;
 Experiential and affective issues in multimedia;
 Interactive multimedia search;
 Machine learning with a human-in-the loop;
 User, context, and task modeling in multimedia systems;
 Multimedia ubiquitous computing;
 Human interaction modeling from multimedia;
 Social dynamics modeling and socially aware systems;
 Cultural and social issues in multimedia modeling;
 Multimedia collaboration;
 Interactive storytelling
The workshop will be divided into three sessions (interaction, content
analysis, and content production). Each session will consist of two brief
position statement presentations and an extended group discussion. In
addition, there will be a panel session and a technical session in which
authors with technical papers will present their results in poster format.
In order to encourage active participation, the group discussions will be
guided based on the issues raised by the selected papers, so the goal is to
go beyond presentation of technical results, to a critical analysis of the
main issues defining this emerging field from the perspective of the authors
and workshop attendees.

July 4, 2006:           Submission of full paper
August 2, 2006:         Notification of acceptance
August 15, 2006:        Camera-ready full paper

Please see the website for details:

NOTE: Separate from the workshop, there will be a special issue on
Human-Centered Computing in IEEE Computer Magazine (to be published in
2007). Submissions to the magazine will undergo a separate review process
(there will be a separate call for papers with a submission deadline after
the notification of acceptance for the workshop). However, authors who
submit to the HCM workshop and later submit to the special issue will have
the benefit of additional comments to prepare their magazine contributions.
