Fourth International Workshop on Automated Media Analysis and Production for
Novel TV Services -- AIEMPro 2011


In conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2011

in Scottsdale, AZ, USA

November 28 - December 1st, 2011

The explosive growth of new media distribution channels in the Internet and
the resulting new production workflows based on computerized tools are
forcing media industry to adapt new business models and supporting


The workshop series on Automated Media Analysis and Production for Novel TV
Services (AIEMPro 2011) merges the previous two workshops AIEMPro and CBTV,
fostering the exchange of ideas and best practices between leading experts
in industrial and academic research, academic stakeholders of prospective
methods, and leading actors in the media industry. The combined workshop
aims to catalyze the migration towards new ways of producing, broadcasting,
and presenting media content, via the introduction of tools for automated
multimedia analysis and understanding. At the same time, the workshop will
help academic researchers better understand the real-life key requirements
that enable higher impact and wider adoption of these methods.


Media production workflows are substantially influenced by new ways of
acquiring, elaborating, and publishing audiovisual material, as well as by
bandwidth adaptive streaming through Internet portals. In this context,
automatic information extraction techniques based on audiovisual content
analysis are seen as an interesting and promising option to streamline these
processes and lower the total cost of new productions, and as a way to help
to disseminate existing archives. This line of development has been fully
recognized by the European Broadcasting Union, Time Warner, and other major
players in industry. However, so far the potential of these methods is yet
to be leveraged in everyday use. On the delivery side, TV content is
generally available as continuous streams of audio-visual frames. For
example, in linear television, useful TV programs and inter-programs (like
commercials, trailers) are concatenated and broadcasted without any precise
and reliable flags that identify the boundaries and times of interest. Thus,
media streams have to be first macro-segmented and segments must be
classified and mined with the objective to recover the original structure of
the stream.


Authors are encouraged to submit papers on which they enlighten the features
of existing or novel systems and applications in the key aspects of future
media production based on automated information extraction. This includes
acquisition, editing, search and retrieval, publishing, archiving and
repurposing of audiovisual material.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    * Multimodal topic and concept detection, categorization, and genre /
editorial format detection

    * Automatic speech recognition and keyword spotting

    * Automated copyright infringement detection and watermarking

    * Duplicate and near duplicate detection

    * Content segmentation (video and/or audio)

    * Content summarization

    * High- and low-level acoustic, visual, and multimodal indexing

   * Multimodal personality identification (e.g., combined face and speaker

    * Visual and acoustic event detection in multimedia streams

    * Thematic and semantic clustering of television programmes

    * (Semi-) Automated repurposing of archived material

    * Computer-assisted news production

    * Context based retrieval and indexing of news content

    * Assisted material selection

    * Efficient navigation and retrieval of live multimedia streams

    * Automated trust estimation and opinion mining for news

    * Ontologies and metadata schemes for media production and their

    * HCI for efficient annotation and retrieval

    * Automated cross-media linking

    * Evaluation methods for multimedia content analysis tools data sets and
standard resources

    * Architectures and best-practices for integrating annotation tools in
production workflows

    * Tools for automatic handling information extraction tools results by
using MPEG-7 AVDP

    * User studies and usage trends


We are particularly interested in tools and solutions that are scalable and
operate in real-time.
