Call for Tutorial Proposals

ICMR 2015 will feature free tutorials on the first day (June 23rd, 2015) addressing the broad interests of the multimedia retrieval community.

ICMR tutorials aim to provide a comprehensive overview of specific topics in multimedia retrieval. The topic should be of sufficient relevance with respect to the state-of-the-art and the course should be educational rather than a cursory survey of techniques; hands-on tutorials are highly welcome. The audience for ICMR short courses and tutorials consists primarily of graduate students in multimedia retrieval. Although most courses are half-day offerings, we also invite proposals for full-day courses provided that the topic merits the additional time and can be anticipated to generate sufficient interest from our community.

The proposed tutorial should be linked to the ICMR 2015 topics included in the general call for papers:

  • Content and context based indexing, search and retrieval of multimedia data
  • Multimodal content analysis and retrieval
  • Deep learning for multimedia retrieval
  • Advanced descriptors and similarity metrics for audio, image, video and 3D data
  • Complex multimedia event detection and recounting
  • Learning and relevance feedback in multimedia retrieval
  • Query models, paradigms, and languages for multimedia retrieval
  • Hashing and indexing algorithms for large-scale retrieval
  • Cross-media retrieval
  • Fine-grained visual search
  • Human perception based multimedia retrieval
  • Studies of information-seeking behavior among image/video users
  • Affective/emotional interaction or interfaces for image/video retrieval
  • HCI issues in multimedia retrieval
  • Crowdsourcing in multimedia retrieval
  • Community-based multimedia content management
