Interactive Multimedia Applications (WIMA)

held in conjunction with USAB 2010: HCI in Work & Learning, Life & Leisure, Nov. 4.-5., 2010
Klagenfurt, Austria
Multimedia applications have become ubiquitous lately. People record and watch videos on mobile and stationary devices, they use non linear video editors, and they share and organize their personal multimedia archives. Lots of research has been done on the technical aspects of multimedia, like streaming, presentation, transcoding, adaptation and content based retrieval and analysis. But handling multimedia is an interactive process and users have to be taken into account. Even consumption is often accompanied with communication, non linear browsing and search. This interactivity in multimedia applications is a challenging yet very promising topic as especially in multimedia applications people more often accept innovative ideas and fundamental changes more easily.
This workshop should bring together researchers and practitioners from the fields of Multimedia and Human-Computer Interaction research (HCI). In this workshop we aim to discuss recent scientific advances and also first results of greenhouse work in the field of interactive multimedia applications. We also encourage the submission of papers presenting studies on interactivity in multimedia systems or discussing the development of applications in this field.

Topics include the aspects of interactivity in the following fields:
•    Multimedia Retrieval, Browsing & Navigation
