MR2AMC is a series of workshops on Multimodal Representation, Retrieval, and Analysis of Multimedia Content organized by the MIDAS lab in IIIT-Delhi. MIDAS stands for Multimodal Digital Media Analysis Lab and it consists a group of researchers who study, analyze, and build different multimedia systems for society leveraging multimodal information. The first iteration of the workshop held in conjunction with the IEEE MIPR conference. The second iteration of the workshop will be held in conjunction with the 20th IEEE International Conference on Multimedia in Taichung, Taiwan. This year's workshop theme is social media. Thus, MR2AMC aims to provide an international forum for researchers in the field of multimedia data processing, analysis, search, mining, and management leveraging multimodal information in social media. This workshop will provide a forum to researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry for original research contributions and practical system design, implementation, and applications of multimodal multimedia information processing, mining, representation, management, and retrieval. MR2AMC 2018 invites research papers in the area of multimodal multimedia content analysis, search and retrieval, semantic computing, and affective computing. Accepted papers of MR2AMC 2018 will be published as part of the workshop proceedings in the IEEE Digital Library. Extended versions of the accepted workshop papers will be invited for publication in Springer Cognitive Computation and IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine.

Author guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

The MR2AMC workshop 2018 follows the submission guidelines of the 20th IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia(ISM 2018). Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining to the topics in the CFP are solicited. There are two different submission categories: REGULAR and SHORT whose lengths are expected to be 8 and 4 pages long (using theIEEE two-column template instructions), respectively. Submissions should include the title, author(s), affiliation(s), e-mail address(es), tel/fax numbers, abstract, and postal address(es) on the first page. The online submission site is: Submission Link (click here). If web submission is not possible, please contact the program co-chairs for alternate arrangements. Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Paper submission implies the intent of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. For the detailed information on submission templates and instructions, check the MIPR's submission instruction page (click here).

Topics of submission

The primary goal of the proposed workshop is to investigate whether multimedia content when fused with other modalities (e.g., contextual, crowd-source, and relationship information) can enhance the performance of unimodal (e.g., when only multimedia content) multimedia systems. The broader context of the workshop comprehends Multimedia Information Processing (e.g., Natural Language Processing, Image Processing, Speech Processing, and Video Processing), Multimedia Embedding (e.g., Word Embedding and Image Embedding), Web Mining, Machine Learning, Deep Neural Networks, and AI. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Multimodal Multimedia Search, Retrieval and Recommendation
  • Multimodal Personalized Multimedia Retrieval and Recommendation
  • Multimodal Event Detection, Recommendation, and Understanding
  • Multimodal Multimedia based FAQ and QA Systems
  • Multimodal based Diverse Multimedia Search, Retrieval and Recommendation
  • Multimodal Multimedia Content Analysis
  • Multimodal Semantic and Sentiment based Multimedia Analysis
  • Multimodal Semantic and Sentiment based Multimedia Annotation
  • Multimodal Semantic-based Multimedia Retrieval and Recommendation
