The 1st ACM Workshop on Multimedia in Forensics (MiFor09)
in conjunction with the 2009 ACM International Conference on Multimedia (ACM-MM)
Beijing Hotel, Beijing, China
October 23, 2009

With the proliferation of multimedia data on the web, surveillance cameras in cities, and mobile phones in everyday life we see an enormous growth in multimedia data that needs to be analyzed by forensic investigators. The sheer volume of such datasets makes manual inspection of all data impossible. Tools are needed to support the investigator in their quest for relevant clues and evidence and in their strive towards preventing crime.
The time is ripe to tailor results from the Multimedia field for forensics. Multimedia in forensics aims at addressing the multimedia toolbox supporting the forensic process from the prevention of crime, capturing and annotation of the crime scene, the investigation of the data in the lab, up to the presentation of the results in court. It is a first attempt in bringing multimedia tools in to this exciting application field. Target audience are researchers working on innovative technology, representatives from companies developing tools, and forensic investigators in various disciplines.
The workshop topics will include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Video Analytics
- Forensic investigation
- Multimodal analysis
- Ontologies
- Visual analytics

Crime scene
- Modeling and reconstruction
- Semantic annotation

- Searching for illicit content in multimedia data
- Image and video linking
- Multimedia copyright violation detection
- Multimedia interfaces
- Detection of stenography
- Speaker recognition
- Authenticity of multimedia data
- Identity detection

Presentation in court
- Multimedia presentation of evidence
- Use of 3D models

Papers should be 6 pages. Accepted papers for oral and poster presentations at the workshop will be included in the workshop's proceedings, which will be published together with the proceedings of the ACM Multimedia Conference 2009. A special issue or an edited volume will be realized containing an extended version of the best papers.
