At this weeks ACM Multimedia, the solutions for the Multimedia Grand Challenges will be presented. The Multimedia Grand Challenge presents a set of problems and issues from industry leaders, geared to engage the Multimedia research community in solving relevant, interesting and challenging questions about the industry’s 3-5 year vision for multimedia. MediaMixer and VideoLectures.NET have introduced a brand new challenge this year, along their vision of enabling fragmentation of online media and annotating it to support new services like VideoLecturesMashup. 

In a session on Thursday both shortlisted solutions will be presented and a winner will be announced, winning a MediaMixer prize to travel to Ljubljana and meet the VideoLectures.NET team:

  • Multi-factor Segmentation for Topic Visualization and Recommendation: the MUST-VIS System.” Chidansh Bhatt, Andrei Popescu-Belis, Maryam Habibi, Sandy Ingram, Stefano Masneri, Fergus McInnes, Nikolaos Pappas and Oliver Schreer.
  • Lecture Video Segmentation by Automatically Analyzing the Synchronized Slides.” Xiaoyin Che, Haojin Yang and Christoph Meinel.
ACM Multimedia attendees are invited to find out in the Grand Challenge session on Thursday. MediaMixer will be tweeting @project_mmixer and the winner will be announced via the website.
