Special session on Multimedia indexing for content-based search engines at IEEE CBMI 2009

I have been chair of the special session SS3 Multimedia indexing for content-based search engines at CBMI 2009 (7th International Workshop on Content-Based Multimedia Indexing), held in Chania, Crete (Greece).

All the main scientific contributors of the Pharos project will be represented in the session, together with a set of selected invited speakers from other European projects. The event has been a great opportunity for discussion, joint work and presentation of project outcomes.

The presented papers are:

  1. Petros Daras and Apostolos Axenopoulos. A Compact Multi-View Descripto for 3D Object Retrieval
  2. Alessandro Bozzon, Marco Brambilla and Piero Fraternali. Model-Driven Design of Audiovisual Indexing Processes for Search-Based Applications
  3. Reede Ren and Joemon Jose. Query Generation From Multiple Multimedia Examples
  4. Azeddine Zidouni, Mohamed Quafafou and Herve Glotin. Structured Named Entity Retrieval in Audio Broadcast News

  6. Peter Dunker, Christian Dittmar, Andre Begau, Stefanie Nowak and Matthias Gruhne. Semantic High-Level Features for Automated Cross-Modal Slideshow Generation
  7. Georges Quenot, Tien Ping Tan, Viet Bac Le, Stephane Ayache, Laurent Besacier and Philippe Mulhem. Content-Based Search in Multi-Lingual Audiovisual Documents using the International Phonetic Alphabet
  8. Cyril Laurier, Owen Meyers, Joan Serra, Martin Blech and Perfecto Herrera. Music Mood Annotator Design and Integration
