1st International Workshop on: *INTERNET MULTIMEDIA MINING*

1st International Workshop on:


(with dataset support)


In conjunction with IEEE International Conference on Data Mining 2009

December 6, Miami, Florida, USA

Aims and scopeWith the explosion of video and image data available on the Internet, online multimedia applications become more and more important. Moreover, mining semantics and other useful information from large-scale Internet multimedia data to facilitate online and local multimedia content analysis, search and other related applications has also gained more and more attention from both academia and industry. On the one hand, the rapid increase of online multimedia data brings new challenges to multimedia content analysis, multimedia retrieval and related multimedia applications, especially in scalability. Both computation cost and performance of many existing techniques are far from satisfactory. On the other hand, Internet also provides us with new opportunities to attack these challenges as well has conventional problems encountered in multimedia mining, content analysis, image/video understanding and computer vision. That is, the massive associated metadata, context and social information available on the Internet, as well as the massive grassroots Internet users, are invaluable resources that can be leveraged to solve the aforementioned difficulties.

Recently more and more researchers are realizing both the challenges and the opportunities for multimedia research brought by the Internet. This full-day workshop aims at bringing together high-quality and novel research works on "Internet Multimedia Mining".

One of the major obstacles of "Internet Multimedia Mining" research is the difficulty in forming a "good" dataset for algorithm developing, system prototyping and performanceevaluation. Together with this workshop, we release a benchmark dataset, which is based on real Internet multimedia data and real Internet multimedia search engines. Submissions to this workshop are encouraged to use this dataset, but papers/demos working on other Internet-based datasets are also welcome.

MSRA Multimedia Dataset

MSRA-MM Version 1 dataset is ready for shipping. Detailed information about the dataset can

be find at: http://research.microsoft.com/apps/pubs/default.aspx?id=79942. Please contact the

dataset chair (Meng Wang: mengwang@microsoft.com) to request the data.

MSRA-MM Version 2 dataset (10 times larger with more metadata) will be ready around June 15.

Please submit your request to the dataset chair.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

* Internet video/image/audio annotation, classification, tagging, search ranking and reranking by combining textual description and video/image content.

* General video/image/audio annotation, classification, tagging, search ranking and reranking by exploiting Internet data and/or users. Approaches which can handle large-scale data/users are more preferred.

* Video/image/audio processing and analyses using Internet data as a knowledge base.

* Social media processing, such as online media authoring and sharing, tag recommendation, tag filtering, tag ranking, and search ranking based on image/video/audio social context.

* Knowledge mining from Internet multimedia data, such as mining semantic distance of keywords or images, mining video/image/audio copy relationships (e.g., given a video/image/audio, to find all videos/images on the Internet that have the same content with the video/image, either entirely or partially), mining trends of multimedia consuming/sharing, mining knowledge (for example, "photo encyclopedia"", from massive amount of multimedia content on the Internet, etc.

* Web-scale content-based multimedia retrieval (for example, approaches based on large-scale high-dimensional feature indexing).

* Other online multimedia mining applications, such as multimedia advertising, multimedia recommendation, as well as location/GPS/geography-enabled multimedia, multimedia sensor network over the Internet, etc.

Paper Submission

We accept two forms of submissions: regular full papers and demonstrations. Regular submissions for this workshop are required to use the same format as regular ICDM long papers (a maximum of 10 pages in the IEEE 2-column format). And demonstration submission requires a 1- or 2-page demo description. We especially encourage long-paper authors to submit a demo also. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 members of the program committee. Extended version of selected papers will be invited to submit to a special issue of a top journal in data mining or multimedia area.


The workshop will present two awards: a best paper award and a best demonstration award, judged by a separate awards committee.

Workshop on Adaptive and Reconfigurable Embedded Systems (APRES)

Workshop on Adaptive and Reconfigurable Embedded Systems (APRES)

Grenoble, France -- October 11, 2009

Integrated in the ESWEEK 2009

With support from the ArtistDesign European Network of Excellence on Embedded Systems Design



Adaptive embedded systems can respond to environmental changes including hardware/software defects, resource changes, and non-continual feature usage. As such, adaptive systems can extend the area of operations and improve efficiency in the use of system resources. However, adaptability also incurs overhead in terms of system complexity and resource requirements. For example, an adaptive system requires some means for reconfiguration. These means and their mechanisms introduce additional complexity to the design and the architecture, and they also require additional resources such as computation, power, and communication bandwidth. Consequently, adaptive systems must be diligently planned, designed, analyzed, and built to find the right tradeoffs between too much and too little flexibility.

The issue is how to provide the adaptability to the application, because
it affects all aspects of the development process (e.g., capturing, methodologies, modeling, analysis, testing, and implementation), the chosen system technologies (e.g., computation and communication models, interfaces, component-based design, programming languages, dependability, and design patterns) and the system itself (e.g., operating system, middleware, network protocols, and application frameworks).

In many systems, flexibility and the resulting tradeoffs is usually ignored until a very late stage. Many try to retrofit existing prototypes, middleware, operating systems, and protocols with concepts and means for flexibility such as run-time system reconfiguration or reflexive diagnostics and steering methods. Such retrofitting typically leads to disproportionate overhead, unusual tradeoffs, and in general it leads to less satisfactory results.

The purpose of the workshop is to discuss new and on-going research that is centered on the idea of adaptability as first class citizen and consider the involved tradeoffs. The workshop will provide an open forum to discuss ideas and approaches, and intends to give the attendees a chance to discuss them in a relaxed environment. The target audience includes people from academia, tool vendors, system suppliers, and users in industry interested in the all aspects of the mentioned topics. The workshop will be based on presentations of selected works with sufficient time for feedback from the audience and discussions. We encourage all the prospective participants to submit short papers, work-
in-progress reports, or position papers.

Information on the previous edition of the workshop can be found here

Third Workshop on Formal Languages and Analysis of Contract-Oriented Software (FLACOS'09)

Third Workshop on Formal Languages and Analysis of
Contract-Oriented Software (FLACOS'09)

24-25 September 2009, Toledo - Spain

The ability to negotiate contracts for a wide range of aspects and to provide services conforming to them is a most pressing need in service-oriented architectures. High-level models of contracts are making their way into service-oriented architectures, but application developers are still left to their own devices when it comes to writing code that will comply with a contract concluded just before service provisioning. At the programming language level, contracts appear as separate concerns that cut across application logic, while analysis requires that contracts are abstracted from applications to become amenable to formal reasoning using formal language techniques. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners working on language-based solutions to the above issues through formalization of contracts, design of appropriate abstraction mechanisms, and formal analysis of contract languages and software.

The workshop will consist mainly of a number of presentations by invited speakers. A small number of additional sessions will be reserved for other researchers in the field who are encouraged to submit a short abstract of their work as an expression of interest in participating in the workshop by 8 June 2009. The number of participants in the workshop is strictly limited.

The previous editions of the workshop were held in Oslo in 2007 (FLACOS'07) and Malta in 2008 (FLACOS'08). The FLACOS workshops are partially supported by Nordunet3, under the project COSoDIS.


Paper Submission Deadline: 8 June 2009
Notification of Acceptance: 15 June 2009
Registration Closes: 15 August 2009
WORKSHOP: 24-25 September 2009


Topics of the workshop include (but are not limited to):
  • Formal languages for contracts
  • Contract-oriented software development
