Audiovisual digital libraries  require new solutions for content
organization, access and interaction. In particular,  user interfaces,
querying, browsing and visualization solutions, query languages for
multimedia data,  metadata extraction, ontologies, efficient data base
organizations, are important and critical subjects of investigation.
Based on tailorable interaction and visualization models, future
interface functionality will include options for selection, filtering,
linking, ranking, and recommendation of multimedia documents, for
collaboration with peer groups in various contexts, for re-using and
re-interpreting information objects in different contexts. All these
modes of operation have to be designed taking into account various
aspects such as: user type, user characteristics and their needs.
Selection of appropriate metadata for the representation of the objects'
properties, and suitable data organization and management will support
retrieval by content either based on local or global characteristics of
the objects.
This workshop, promoted by the DELOS Network of Excellence
(, aims at providing a forum to present the
latest research results, new technology development and new applications
in the areas of multimedia content and information visualization in
digital libraries.
The following non-restrictive list is given to illustrate items of
particular interest for this conference:

* Interface Design
* Visual Filtering
* Visual Mining
* Metadata extraction
* Efficient data base structures
* Content based retrieval and browsing
* Personalization support
* Audio, sound digital libraries
* Image, Video, 3D data digital libraries
* Multimedia digital libraries
* Large Data and High Dimensional Visualization
* Visualization in Non-traditional Devices
* Universal Accessibility
