Workshop on Interoperable Social Media Applications (WISMA 2010)

11th International Workshop of the Multimedia Metadata Community

19th-20th May 2010, Barcelona, Spain

General Information:

In the Web 2.0, a growing amount of multimedia content is being shared  
on Social Networks. Due to the dynamic and ubiquitous nature of this  
content (and associated descriptors), new interesting challenges for  
indexing, access, and search and retrieval have arisen.
In addition, there is a growing concern on privacy protection, as a  
lot of personal data is being exchanged. Teenagers (and even younger  
kids), for example, require special protection applications; while  
adults are willing to have a higher control over the access to content.
Furthermore, the integration of mobile technologies with the Web 2.0  
applications is also an interesting area of research that needs to be  
addressed; not only in terms of content protection, but also  
considering the implementation of new and enriched context-aware  
Finally, social multimedia is also expected to improve the performance  
of traditional multimedia information search and retrieval approaches  
by contributing to bridge the semantic gap. The integration of these  
aspects, however, is not trivial and has created a new  
interdisciplinary area of research.
In any case, there is a common issue that needs to be addressed in all  
the previously identified social multimedia applications: the  
interoperability and extensibility of their applications. Thus, the  
workshop is particularly interested in research contributions based on  

It is the 10th International Workshop of the Multimedia Metadata

Papers should describe original and significant work in the research  
and industrial practice of related topics.
(i) Long papers: up to 8 pages, will normally be particularly focused  
on research studies, applications and experiments
(ii) Short papers: up to 4 pages, will be particularly suitable for  
reporting work-in-progress, interim results, or as a position paper  

Applications and Industrial Presentations:
Proposals for presentations of applications and tools, including  
reports on the application and utilisation of tools, industrial  
practices and models, or tool/system demonstrations. Abstract: 2 pages.

All submissions and proposals are to be in English and submitted in  
PDF format at the WISMA paper submission website on or before 28th
