         ********** 2ND CALL FOR PAPERS   **********
      International Workshop on Social, Adaptive and Personalized
                Multimedia Interaction and Access
				      (SAPMIA 2010)
				October, 29th. Florence, Italy

In conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2010


In an effort to address and overcome some of these open issues
that hinder effective access and interaction of multimedia content,
this workshop will bring together individuals from a number of research
communities, including but not limited to Multimedia Distribution and
Access, Social Network Analysis, Multimedia Content Analysis, and
User Modelling Adaptation and Personalization. It is our belief that
a synergetic approach involving these areas of work can exceed their
individual potentials, leading to improved access, understanding,
and retrieval of multimedia content. The main objective of this workshop
is to provide a forum to disseminate work that explicitly exploit the synergy
between multimedia content analysis, personalisation, and next generation
networking and community aspects of social networks. We believe that this
integration could result on robust, personalized multimedia services, providing
users with an improved multimedia experience.

In particular, user modelling and adaptation techniques can help alleviate
the above problems by taking the user into consideration when accessing
multimedia content. Information related to the user such as interests,
current context or past interaction behaviour can provide additional
valuable information that allows multimedia systems to better present,
adapt, retrieve, or understand multimedia content. In addition,
this workshop will also focus on the analysis of user networked communities,
which can potentially provide richer and more structured information related
to users and multimedia content. Hence, this workshop is distinct from and
complementary to previous initiatives in that it involves the integration
multimedia content analysis techniques with information derived from users,
networked communities, and context awareness.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Personalized access to multimedia content
* Multimedia content-based recommendation and collaborative filtering
* Interactive multimedia systems
* Semantic technologies for multimedia content personalization and adaptation
* Adaptive models for exploration of multimedia archives: adaptive
browsing, collaborative search
* Adaptive user interfaces for multimedia browsing and searching
* Evaluation of adaptive multimedia systems
* Social networks analysis to multimedia content personalization and adaptation
* Multimedia interaction in networked communities
* Social multimedia applications (e.g. P2P applications, Multimedia
  social collections & networking, lifelogging)
* Ubiquitous access to multimedia content and pervasive multimedia
content delivery
* Techniques for robust and scalable distribution of multimedia content.
* Robust distribution of multimedia services over heterogeneous
networks and access technologies
