CBMI (eighteenth edition) aims at bringing together the various communities involved in all aspects of content-based multimedia indexing for retrieval, browsing, management, visualization and analytics. Topics of interest to the CBMI community include, but are not limited to, the following: audio and visual and multimedia indexing, multimodal and cross-modal indexing, deep learning for multimedia indexing, visual content extraction, audio (speech, music, etc.) content extraction, identification and tracking of semantic regions and events, social media analysis…

The eighteenth edition of CBMI will be organized by the CRIStAL laboratory at University of Lille, Lille, France, following the successful previous editions of Toulouse 1999, Brescia 2001, Rennes 2003, Riga 2005, Bordeaux 2007, London 2008, Chania 2009, Grenoble 2010, Madrid 2011, Annecy 2012, Veszprem 2013, Klagenfurt 2014, Prague 2015, Bucharest 2016, Firenze 2017, La Rochelle 2018, and Dublin 2019.

Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished research papers in the broad field of content-based multimedia indexing and applications. We wish to highlight significant contributions addressing the main problem of search and retrieval but also the related and equally important issues of multimedia content management, user interaction, large-scale search, learning in retrieval, social media indexing and retrieval. Additional special sessions are planned in areas such as deep learning for retrieval, social media retrieval, cultural heritage, surveillance and security.

Authors can submit full length (6 pages - to be presented as oral presentation) or short papers (4 pages - to be presented as posters). Papers can be submitted to the regular paper sessions, demo session, or to one of the special sessions. Additionally demonstration papers (up to 4 pages) may also be submitted that highlight interesting and novel demos of CBMI-related technologies. The submissions are peer reviewed in a single blind process. The language of the conference is English. The CBMI 2021 conference adheres to the IEEE paper formatting guidelines. When preparing your submission, please follow the IEEE guidelines given by IEEE at the Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings.

The CBMI proceedings are traditionally indexed and distributed by IEEE Xplore and ACM DL. In addition, authors of certain best papers of the conference will be invited to submit extended versions of their contributions to a special issue of a leading journal in the field (e.g. MTAP - Springer), and other best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their contributions in a book (ISTE/WILEY publisher).

Topics of interest to the CBMI community include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Audio and visual and multimedia indexing
• Multimodal and cross-modal indexing
• Deep learning for multimedia indexing
• Visual content extraction
• Audio (speech, music, etc) content extraction
• Identification and tracking of semantic regions and events
• Social media analysis
• Metadata generation, coding and transformation
• Multimedia information retrieval (image, audio, video, text)
• Mobile media retrieval
• Event-based media processing and retrieval
• Affective/emotional interaction or interfaces for multimedia retrieval
• Multimedia data mining and analytics
• Multimedia recommendation
• Large scale multimedia database management
• Summarization, browsing and organization of multimedia content
• Personalization and content adaptation
• User interaction and relevance feedback
• Multimedia interfaces, presentation and visualization tools
• Evaluation and benchmarking of multimedia retrieval systems
• Applications of multimedia retrieval, e.g., medicine, lifelogs, satellite imagery, video surveillance
• Cultural heritage applications

We strongly encourage students to participate in CBMI-21 event and submit their research. We strongly believe in their power and they are the future of the research in content-based multimedia indexing. For these reasons and for the first time in the history of the conference, the 2021 edition of CBMI with support of ACM SIGMM (www.sigmm.org), will sponsor several students, authors of papers submitted and accepted by CBMI-21, and being corresponding author of a paper. The student status will be recognized only to PhDs and master students. Certain students will be totally sponsored, including registration fees, accommodations and travel expenses. Other students will be partly sponsored, including substantial reduction in the registration fees, no cut-backs to the students’ conference experience, and budget accommodation options and arrangement for room sharing.

Furthermore, in this edition, prizes will be awarded to the best student poster presentations of CBMI2021. All the participants registered to CBMI2021 as student will be automatically admitted to the selection for the awards. All the papers accepted as poster presentation by the Technical Program Committee (TPC), from students will be considered for the awards, given that a full-paper manuscript has been submitted.

The student poster awards committee will evaluate the nominated contributions during the poster sessions of CBMI2021. The evaluation criteria will be independently established by the Committee before the conference and will take into account the scientific content as well as the technical quality of the posters.

The Student Poster Awards will be announced during the Gala Dinner, on June 29th.


Three special sessions will also be organized :

* Bio-inspired circuits, systems and algorithms for multimedia
* Content-based learning in astrophysics (CoBLA)
* Mining and indexing multimedia data for remote sensing of the environment and our changing planet

Special session papers will be included in the proceedings of CBMI 2021.
