                                       Multimedia Information Retrieval

                                                      ACM MIR-2010
                                                      Call for Papers

Call for Papers

Multimedia information retrieval is a cross-cutting field. Extending
beyond the borders of culture, art, and science, the search for digital
information is one of the major challenges of our time. Digital libraries,
bio-computing & medical science, the Internet and social networking sites,
streaming video, multimedia databases, cultural heritage collections and
P2P networks have created a worldwide need for new paradigms and techniques
on how to browse, search and summarize multimedia collections and more
generally how to afford efficient multimedia content consumption.

The 11th ACM International Conference on Multimedia Information Retrieval
(MIR) is the premier scientific meeting for discussing the latest advances
in the area of multimedia retrieval. MIR 2010 is on its second year as a
full ACM conference, following nine successful years as a workshop held in
conjunction with the ACM Multimedia Conference. The growth of MIR is a result
the growing importance of multimedia content in our lives. In MIR 2008, there
were 308 submitted papers with an overall (full and short papers) acceptance
rate of 18%. The conference was attended by more than 150 registered

The purpose of MIR 2010 is to bring together researchers and practitioners
from academia and industry. We are soliciting original papers that address
a wide range of issues in multimedia information exploration, summarization
and retrieval including, but not limited to:

-- Analysis, Indexing, Search and Retrieval of multimedia data: images,
video, audio, music, other data types, multi-modal systems
-- Multimedia Data Mining
-- Personal Multimedia Content Management: analysis, search, retrieval,
-- Learning, personalization and relevance feedback in multimedia retrieval
-- Scalable indexing, search and structuring
-- Novel Interfaces for multimedia management, search and retrieval
-- Exploration of media archives: browsing, experiential computing Interfaces
and User Experience for multimedia exploration, visualization,
-- Digital Life Experience analysis and retrieval - life logs, digital
immortality, life bits Video surveillance browsing and retrieval,
-- Context and content-based approaches to multimedia retrieval
-- Mobile multimedia indexing, search and retrieval applications
-- Identification and monitoring: Trademark search, multimedia copy detection,
multimedia watermarking techniques
-- Application domains: Scientific multimedia, environmental studies,
bio-computing and medical multimedia analysis and indexing (MRI/CT, microscopic
images, satellite imaging, sensors, etc.), Preserving cultural heritage.

Special Sessions
Special Sessions for emerging frontier theories or applications in MIR. Note
that the novelty requirement in these sessions is much higher than the regular
paper submissions.  Information about these sessions will be available on the
conference Website.

Paper Submission
Full papers (10 pages in the ACM style sheet in English) should be submitted
through the website submission system. Each author can be involved in at most
two submissions to this conference.  The authors may choose to submit manuscripts
for double-blind review.  If that is the case, we recommend that the authors not
give any indications of authorship in the text.
