Preliminary Call for Papers

Video Browser Showdown

The VBS2014 will be a half-day workshop that will take place one day before MMM2014 (Tuesday, January 7, 2014) at the conference venue of MMM2014 in Dublin, Ireland. This will be the third year that VBS2014 has taken place during the MMM conference. VBS2014 will be primarily a private participation workshop with only the last 45 minutes being public to the audience, as a live and moderated “special demo session” of MMM2014 right before the Welcome Reception. This new schedule will allow a much more detailed analysis of the search performance of participating teams as well as different kind of search tasks. The evaluation of the results will be published in an own paper after the workshop.

Anyone with a video browsing tool that allows for interactive browsing, exploration, or navigation in a single video file or in video archives may participate. However, search shouldn’t be based on automatic queries. Examples of tools of interest are: a video shot browser (e.g., temporal-based or concept-based), a video player with extended navigation/interaction means, a video content exploration tool, or tools using advanced visualizations for improved navigation/interaction (video surrogates), etc. Tools developed for interactive video search on mobile devices are of special interest. Moreover, also tools with collaborative interactive search (e.g., with two users) are allowed.

Conference proceedings will be published as series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer. Authors of selected papers of MMM 2014 will be invited to publish extended versions in a special issue of Multimedia Tools and Applications journal (MTAP, Springer).

Submissions should conform to the formatting instructions of Springer Verlag, LNCS series http://www.springer.com/LNCS/. Page limits are 12 pages for full papers. All submissions will be peer-reviewed in a double-blind review process to ensure maximum quality.

Important Dates:

Aug 01, 2013: Deadline for papers (full, short, sp. sessions) & demos
Sep 18, 2013:Acceptance notification for all paper types and demos
Oct 16, 2013: Camera-ready versions due
