MMV Accepted Papers

Special Track on Multimedia and Visualization

The Multimedia and Visualization track is concerned with principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to understand, create, manage, visualize and maintain multimedia in general and in interactive media in particular. The aim of this track is to bring together researchers from academia and industry who are actively engaged both in theoretical and practical aspects of these multidisciplinary themes, including those interested in discussing issues related to Human-Media Interaction.

The Multimedia and Visualization track’s scope is deliberately quite broad. Submissions were encouraged whose research addressed any combination of issues in multimedia, visualization and interaction. The Multimedia and Visualization track received a total of 27 submissions. After review of each paper by at least three reviewers, 8 submissions were accepted as full papers and 3 were accepted as posters. The accepted works cover many topics within the track’s scope. Visualization papers deal with 3D graphics performance, software visualization, image browsing, and document collection browsing. Multimedia papers deal with multimedia recommendation, image retrieval, analysis of social media interactions and stereoscopic video.

We thank all authors for submitting their papers, and all members of the program committee for providing valuable reviews. Authors of the all papers presented at the conference will be invited to submit extended versions of their work to a special issue of the Multimedia Tools and Applications Journal.
