13th Int. Workshop on Image Analysis for Multimedia Interactive Services (WIAMIS 2012)
23-25  May 2012
Dublin City University, Ireland


------------------------------------- Updates --------------------------------------------------------

We are pleased to annouce the following exciting updates for WIAMIS 2012:

Third keynote speaker added:
- Prof. Mubarak Shah, University of Central Florida, "Multimedia Event Detection"
- Dr. Aljoscha Smolic, Disney Research Zurich, "Content Creation for Stereoscopic 3D and Beyond"
- Prof. Tat-Seng Chua, National University of Singapore, "Learning the Social Pulse of a City from User-generated Content" (title TBC)

Industry and end-user panel sessions:
We are planning two vibrant and interactive panel sessions facilitating debate on key issues of interest to the research community as a whole. One of these panel sessions will focus on audio-visual archives bringing an end-user perspective, the other on industry requirements for 3D technologies. Keep checking the WIAMIS web site and more details will be made available in the near future.

WIAMIS 2012 is Technically Co-Sponsored by the IEEE Signal Processing Society. All accepted and registered papers will be published in the workshop proceedings which will be indexed and distributed by IEEExplore.


The International Workshop on Image Analysis for Multimedia Interactive Services is one of the main international events for the presentation and discussion of the latest technological advances in interactive multimedia services. The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry working in the areas of image, video and audio applications, with a special focus on analysis. After a series of successful meetings starting in 1997 in Louvain, WIAMIS 2012 will be held in Dublin City University, Ireland.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- 3D data processing and visualization;
- Multimedia content analysis and understanding;
- Content-based browsing, indexing and retrieval of images, video and audio;
- Content-based copy detection;
- Emotional based content classification and organization;
- 2D/3D feature extraction;
- Advanced descriptors and similarity metrics for multimedia;
- Segmentation and reconstruction of objects in 2D/3D image sequences;
- Motion analysis and tracking;
- Multi-modal analysis for event recognition;
- Analysis for coding efficiency and increased error resilience;
- Analysis and tools for content adaptation;
- Content summarization and personalization strategies;
- End-to-end quality of service support;
- Multimedia analysis for new and emerging applications;
- Multimedia analysis hardware and middleware;
- Semantic web and social networks;
- Advanced interfaces for content analysis and relevance feedback;
- Video/audio-based human behavior analysis;
