ACM SIGMM Multimedia Information Retrieval Workshop 2004
Extending beyond all borders of culture, art, and science, the search for digital information is one of the major challenges of our time. Digital libraries, bio-medical science, the Internet, streaming video, databases, cultural heritage collections and peer-2-peer networks have created a worldwide need for new paradigms and techiques on how to browse, search, and summarize multimedia collections. MIR2004 is a peer-reviewed meeting for scientific researchers and users to discuss important challenges in multimedia retrieval.

Extending beyond all borders of culture, art, and science, the search for digital information is one of the major challenges of our time. Digital libraries, bio-medical science, the Internet, streaming video, databases, cultural heritage collections and peer-2-peer networks have created a worldwide need for new paradigms and techiques on how to browse, search, and summarize multimedia collections. MIR2004 is a peer-reviewed meeting for scientific researchers and users to discuss important challenges in multimedia retrieval. We are soliciting high quality original papers which address important issues in multimedia information retrieval including, but not limited to:

- Content-based indexing, search, and retrieval of multimedia data
- Indexing and retrieval from streaming audio & video
- Bio-Computing and medical multimedia mining and indexing
- Summarization and visualization of multimedia
- Multi-modal human-computer interaction
- Query languages and query processing for multimedia retrieval
- User perspectives and user modeling for multimedia retrieval
- Semantic content analysis
- Intelligent agents for multimedia indexing and retrieval
- Multimedia retrieval for pervasive computing
- Preserving cultural heritage
- Multi-modal event detection and recognition
- Retrieval from multi-modal life logs
- High performance multimedia databases
- Fusion of Multimedia
- Content based retrieval of novel media
- Learning and relevance feedback in multimedia retrieval
