We are pleased to announce the 1st Summer School on Media Fragment Creation and Remixing in Chania, Crete, Greece on June 3-6, 2013.

The summer school aims at offering participants from all over the world – both PhD/MSc students or young researchers, and media professionals / practitioners – top level education in the emerging area of media fragment technologies and applications (including topics such as video analysis, video annotation, semantic multimedia, social media, digital rights and multimedia applications). It will combine delivering in-depth lectures with giving to its participants the possibility for gaining hands-on experience on the use of media fragment annotation and re-use technologies, and of the effectiveness, privacy etc. issues that may arise. The school will be organized in two tracks, one for academia members (PhD/MSc students or young researchers) and one for industry professionals.

Application Deadline: 31 March 2013

Please join and submit  your research papers to the 1st International Workshop on Media fragment creation and reMIXing (MMIX’13)!

The workshop is co-located with IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME 2013) in San Jose, California, USA from July 15 to 19, 2013.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from the different fields that contribute to the development of technologies and applications for media fragment creation and remixing, with emphasis both on the presentation of new supporting technologies for the creation and understanding of media fragments (e.g. video decomposition at different granularity levels; extraction of concepts, events, or textual descriptions that capture the meaning of specific media fragments) and on novel applications of such technologies for media fragment re-use and re- mixing in various domains, such as the traditional media industry, the news industry, video blogging and social media applications, and others.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Multimedia fragmentation techniques
  • Concept detection from media fragments
  • Event detection from media fragments
  • Event recounting and textual description of media fragments
  • Media fragment description
  • Media fragment search and retrieval
  • Media fragments in the social Web
  • User interfaces for media fragment manipulation
  • Novel media fragment re-use and remixing results with commercial application
