ACM International Conference on Image and Video Retrieval
July 8-10, 2009, Santorini Island, Greece - http://www.civr2009.org/ -
Image and Video retrieval have now reached a state where successful techniques and applications start flourishing. The ACM International Conference on Image and Video Retrieval (ACM-CIVR) series of conferences is the ideal opportunity to present and encounter such developments. Originally set up to illuminate the state-of-the-art in image and video retrieval throughout the world, it is now a reference event in the field where researchers and practitioner exchange knowledge and ideas. CIVR2009 is seeking original high quality special sessions addressing innovative research in the broad field of image and video retrieval. We wish to highlight significant and emerging areas of the main problem of search and retrieval but also the equally important related issues of multimedia content management, user interaction and community-based management.
Example topics of interest include but are not limited to: social network information mining, unsupervised methods for data exploration, large scale issues for algorithms and data set generation.
Each special session will consist of 5 invited papers. The organizers’ role is to attract the speakers and chair the session itself. Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic, relevance to CIVR, the degrees to which they will bring together key researchers in the area, introduce the area to the larger research community, further develop the area, and potentials to establish a larger community around the area. Please note that all papers in the proposed session will undergo the same review process as regular papers. If after the reviewing process less than the necessary number of papers solicited for a special session are selected, the Special Session will be cancelled, and the solicited papers that passed review process will be presented within regular sessions of the conference.
