Call for Special Sessions

We invite proposals for special sessions at CMBI2019. Special sessions are mini-venues, each focusing on one state-of-the-art research direction within the content-based multimedia indexing field. Special session papers, which can be invited or submitted, will supplement the regular research papers and be included in the proceedings of CBMI 2019.

Special session proposals must be submitted by email to the special session chairs (submissions@cbmi2019.org) using subject "CBMI 2019 Special Session Proposal" by 08 February 2019. Proposals will be evaluated based on the relevance to CBMI, qualifications of the organiser(s), and the quality and community interest of the topic/proposed potential papers. Required details for proposals are described below.

Usually, each special session should be comprised of four to five papers, which can be invited, or regular submissions. In order to ensure the high quality of all conference papers, all papers submitted to special sessions at CBMI 2019 will be peer-reviewed through a standard review process, including invited papers. If a special session has many high-quality submissions, some of the submissions may potentially be moved to some regular sessions.

The review process will be coordinated with the regular technical program review process, as coordinated by the TPC chairs. The organisers of each special session must provide 1-2 reviews per submitted/invited paper, while the regular program committee will provide 1-2 reviews. Final decision on acceptance/rejection will be made in collaboration between the special session chairs and the CBMI 2019 TPC chairs.

Please include the following information in your proposal:

  • Title of the proposed special session
  • Name, affiliation, brief biography and contact information for each of the organisers
  • A session abstract including significance justification and a brief overview of the state-of-the-art of the proposed special session topic
  • List of potential papers if available, including for each paper: tentative title, author list, and preferably a short abstract
  • Proposal for arrangement of the reviews from session organizers (e.g., list of members of mini-PC for the special session)
  • Description of the session format (e.g., conventional technical talks, short talks & panel discussion, etc..)

Call For Papers

Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished research papers in the broad field of content-based multimedia indexing and applications.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). 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 2019 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 the 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.

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

Call For Demos

Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished demonstration papers in the broad field of content-based multimedia indexing and applications. Demonstration pages should be up to 4 pages in length and highlight interesting and novel demos of CBMI-related technologies. CBMI 2019 especially seeks novel and compelling demonstrations that highlight the potential positive impact of content-based multimedia indexing in daily life. Demonstration papers will be reviewed according to criteria such as novelty, interestingness, applications of or enhancements to state-of-the-art, and potential impact. The submissions are peer reviewed in a single blind process. The language of the workshop is English. The CBMI 2019 conference adheres to the IEEE paper formatting guidelines.

  • 6 pages for full papers of the main track and special session papers
  • 4 pages for short papers of the main track and demonstration papers
  • All the contributions must be written in English. The PDF file format is the only one accepted format for submissions
  • We reserve the right to refuse outright submissions which are failing to comply with these requirements which ensure the proper formatting of the papers for the reviewing process and prospective inclusion in the IEEE Xplore and ACM digital libraries
