*Special Issue on
*Intelligent Multimedia Systems and Technology*
Recent years witnessed the explosion of multimedia data on the Internet,
desktop and mobile devices, and there has been an increasing demand of
intelligent systems and technology to understand, index, manage, search and
consume these data. Machine learning and data mining have proven to be
promising approaches in many data-intensive applications, and many such
efforts have also been dedicated to multimedia data. The objective of this
special issue is to bring together latest research along this direction. We
look for effective machine learning and data mining algorithms, frameworks,
systems, and implementations that particularly work on multimedia data
(including image, video, and audio, which may be also associated with
textual information). The focus is to identify real challenges in
intelligent multimedia systems and technology and to investigate practical
solutions to the core problems of multimedia applications in both
theoretical and practical perspectives.
Topics of interest include but not limited to:
(1) Intelligent systems for multimedia data management, index, search and
(2) Machine learning technology for image, video and audio content
(3) Machine learning technology for multimedia search.
(4) Mining of multimedia data (image, video, audio, or any combination of
(5) Social media analysis and mining.
(6) Intelligent technology for Internet multimedia search.
(7) Large-scale learning and mining algorithms for multimedia data.
We will publish two issues on this topic, and the two issues have different
