Workshops

AMSML: Analysis of Medical and Sports Sensor Data Using Machine Learning

Michael Alexander Riegler, Pål Halvorsen, Steven Hicks, Vajira Thambawita

Machine learning has shown immense power in analyzing sensor data collected for medical and sports applications, where hundreds of papers are published in this area during this last year alone. The Analysis of Medical and Sports Sensor Data Using Machine Learning (AMSML) workshop aims to contribute to this area and focuses on using machine learning to analyze medical and sports data collected from different sensory devices. The workshop will provide an open forum for general MMM attendees where established researchers will share their experience working in the field of sports and medicine.

Research2biz: From Research to Prototype

Duc-Tien Dang-Nguyen, João Ribeiro, Minh-Triet Tran, Thanh Duc Ngo, Van-Tu Ninh, Tu-Khiem Le, Cathal Gurrin

The Research2biz workshop will focus on supporting attendees, specially early state researchers, to translate their research from the lab to real-world application. The workshop activities will begin before the MMM conference by organising virtual training sessions in the months before the conference and setting a list of tasks for attendees, with workshops focused on sharing experiences and providing a tutorial to attendees from experienced academics on the process of research commercialisation. The workshop will provide an open half-day session for general MMM attendees to attend.


Note: Both Workshops have their own submission website and deadlines, please visit their respective websites for more details.

Video Browser Showdown

The Video Browser Showdown (VBS) is an annual live video search competition, where international researchers evaluate and demonstrate the efficiency of their exploratory video retrieval tools on a shared data set in front of the audience.

VBS has been organized as a special session MMM since 2012. In this special session, the participating teams start with a quick presentation of their video search systems and then perform several video retrieval tasks with a moderately large video collection. This year, VBS will collaborate with the TRECVID Ad-Hoc search task and use the same data set of about 1000 hours of video content.

MMM 2022 VBS will be part of the International Conference on MultiMedia Modeling 2022 (MMM2022) and organized as a special side event.

It will be a moderated session where participants solve Known-Item Search (KIS) and Ad-Hoc Video Search (AVS) tasks that are issued as a live presentation of scenes of interest, either as a visual 20 seconds clip (randomly selected) or as a textual description. The goal is to find correct segments (for KIS exactly one segment, for AVS many segments) as fast as possible and submit the segment description (video id and frame number) to the VBS server, which evaluates if the found segment is correct.

To submit to MMM 2022, please go to the MMM 2022 submission site. Description of the submission details are available in the Submission Guidelines.

Brave New Ideas

The Brave New Ideas track of MMM’22 is calling for papers that suggest new opportunities and challenges in the general domain of multimedia analytics and modelling. A BNI paper is expected to stimulate activity towards addressing new, long term challenges of interest to the multimedia modelling community. The papers should address topics with a clear potential for high societal impact; authors should be able to argue that their proposal is important to solving problems, to supporting new perspectives, or to providing services that positively impact on people. Note that is not necessary that papers in this track have large-scale experimental results or comparisons to the state of the art, since it is expected that large, publicly available datasets may not be available, and there may be no existing approaches to which the proposed approach in the paper can be compared. BNI papers should be no longer than 6 pages in length, with one additional page for references if needed. Please note the deadline of 08 October 2021 for BNI papers.

To submit to MMM 2022, please go to the MMM 2022 submission site. Description of the submission details are available in the Submission Guidelines.

Special Session Proposals

Special sessions at MMM 2022 will focus on state-of-the-art research directions within the multimedia field. Special session papers, which can be invited or submitted, will supplement the regular research papers and be included in the proceedings of the conference. Special sessions should generally be organized in a panel format, where the authors have reduced time to present their work, followed by an extensive Q&A session with the audience. This has been shown to work well in recent editions of MMM.

The panel format is a general guideline rather than a strict requirement. If a proposal envisages a potential for a large number of submissions, or if particular value may be provided by the additional discussions that could come with the format of longer workshop activities, we are open to such a submission and would negotiate it further.

Requirements

Normally, each special session will include four to five papers. In addition to invited papers, if any, the conference will also welcome open submissions to special sessions. In order to ensure the high quality of the papers, all papers submitted to special sessions, including invited papers, will be peer-reviewed through a strict review process. If a special session has many high-quality submissions, some of the submissions might be moved to regular sessions. Formatting of special session papers must follow the same guidelines as regular research papers.
The review process will be coordinated with the main technical program review process of the MMM, as coordinated by the PC chairs. The organisers of each special session must provide 1-2 reviews per submitted / invited paper, while the regular program committee will provide another two reviews. Final decision on acceptance / rejection will be made jointly by the special session chairs and the MMM 2022 PC chairs.

Special session papers must follow the same guidelines as regular research papers with respect to restrictions on formatting, length, and double-blind reviews.

Please include the following information in your proposal:

  • Title of the proposed special session.
  • Name, affiliation, brief biography and contact information for each of the organisers.
  • A session abstract including significance justification and a brief overview of the state-of-the-art of the proposed special session topic.
  • List of invited papers, if applicable, including for each paper: tentative title, author list, and preferably a short abstract.
  • Proposal for arrangement of the reviews from session organisers (e.g. list of reviewers for the special session).
  • Description of the session format (e.g. panel, technical talks, poster session).
  • Plans for advertising the special session (e.g. targeted distribution lists, projects, communities)
  • If applicable, plans for exploitation of the results of the workshop (e.g. summary papers)

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic and relevance to MMM, anticipated quality of papers in the proposed session and the other information from the list above provided by the organisers.

Submission

Please submit proposals containing the information from above by email to the Community Direction chairs (mmm2022-communitychairs@googlegroups.com) using subject “MMM2022 Special Session Proposal” by April 12, 2021. Receipt of a proposal will be confirmed by the chairs. Proposals will be evaluated based on the relevance to MMM, qualification(s) of the organizer(s), and the quality and community interest of the topic and proposed invited papers.
