ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval (ICMR)
17-20 April, Trento, Italy

The First ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval (ICMR), 
puts together the long-lasting experience of former ACM CIVR and ACM 
MIR. It is the ideal forum to present and encounter the most recent 
developments and applications in the area of multimedia content 
retrieval. Originally set up to illuminate the state-of-the-art in image 
and video retrieval, ICMR aims at becoming the world reference event in 
this exciting field of research, where researchers and practitioners can 
exchange knowledge and ideas.

Important dates:
     October 15, 2010 : Special Session and Tutorials Proposal
     November 5, 2010 : Special Session and Tutorials Selection
     December 3, 2010 : Paper Submission
     February 11, 2011 : Notification of acceptance
     March 4, 2011 : Submission of camera-ready papers

ICMR 2011 is seeking original high quality submissions addressing 
innovative research in the broad field of multimedia retrieval. We wish 
to highlight significant contributions addressing the main problem of 
search and retrieval but also the related and equally important issues 
of multimedia content management, user interaction, and community-based 
management. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

     * Content- and context-based indexing, search and retrieval of 
images and video
     * Multimedia content search and browsing on the Web
     * Advanced descriptors and similarity metrics for audio, image, 
video and 3D data
     * Multimedia content analysis and understanding
     * Semantic retrieval of visual contents
     * Learning and relevance feedback in media retrieval
     * Query models, paradigms, and languages for multimedia retrieval
     * Multimodal media search
     * Human perception based multimedia retrieval
     * Studies of information-seeking behaviour among image/video users
     * Affective/emotional interaction or interfaces for image/video 
     * HCI issues in multimedia retrieval
     * Evaluation of multimedia retrieval systems
     * High performance multimedia indexing algorithms
     * Database architectures for multimedia retrieval
     * Novel multimedia data management systems and applications
     * Community-based multimedia content management
     * Retrieval from multimodal lifelogs
     * Interaction with medical image databases
     * Satellite imagery analysis/retrieval
     * Image/video summarization and visualization
