Workshop on Social Multimedia and Storytelling (SoMuS 2014)
Using Social Media to Capture, Mine, and Recreate Experiences, Events and Places
co-located with the 2014 ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval (ICMR), Glasgow, UK, April 1 - 4, 2014
The objective of this workshop is to revisit how social multimedia is transforming the way multimedia content is captured, shared, and made available to others. In particular, we are interested on the different stages of the lifecycle of social multimedia content — from the moment something is captured, through its online sharing, collection, and processing to its remixing, repurposing, retrieval, and presentation. The nexus of all these stages is the relation of the content with user experiences, real-world places, and events. This workshop aims to cover multidisciplinary works that congregate around places, activities, and people.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
A number of high-quality papers from the workshop will be invited for submission (after extension) to the IEEE MultiMedia Special Issue on Social Multimedia and Storytelling.
