Multimedia Information Retrieval and Applications

An explosive growth can be experienced in multimedia and other social media appearing online on mobile, wearable and other devices in recent years. The Multimedia Information Retrieval and Applications (MIRA) track is based on emerging interdisciplinary multimedia research and systems dealing with conventional and big multimedia data. The track focuses on new applications and services that can analyze, retrieve, classify and annotate multimedia information even for big multimedia data as well as to help to establish semantical and contextual connections among users on the basis of the information of their interest.

The topics of interest of the track include, but are not limited to:

Multimedia Analysis and Processing

  • Multimedia content analysis
