Call for Contributions

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
