IEEE 1st International Conference on Multimedia Information Processing and Retrieval (IEEE MIPR 2018)
April 10-12, 2018, Miami, FL, USA.

Call for Papers

New forms of multimedia data (such as text, numbers, tags, networking, signals, geo-tagged information, graphs/relationships, 3D/VR/AR and sensor data, etc.) has emerged in many applications in addition to traditional multimedia data (image, video, audio). Multimedia has become the “biggest of big data” as the foundation of today’s data-driven discoveries. Almost all disciplines of science and engineering, as well as social sciences, involve multimedia data in some forms, such as recording experiments, driverless cars, unmanned aerial vehicles, smart communities, biomedical instruments, security surveillance. Some recent events demonstrate the power of real-time broadcast of unfolding events on social networks. Multimedia data is not just big in volume, but also multi-modal and mostly unstructured. Storing, indexing, searching, integrating, and recognizing from the vast amounts of data create unprecedented challenges. Even though significant progress has been made processing multimedia data, today’s solutions are inadequate handling data from millions of sources simultaneously. The first IEEE International Conference on Multimedia Information Processing and Retrieval (IEEE-MIPR) will take place in Miami, Florida, USA on April 10-12, 2018. The conference will provide a forum for original research contributions and practical system design, implementation, and applications of multimedia information processing and retrieval for single modality or multiple modalities. The target audiences will be university researchers, scientists, industry practitioners, software engineers, and graduate students who need to become acquainted with technologies for big data analytics, machine intelligence, information fusion in multimedia information processing and retrieval. A collection of keynotes, open panels, and workshops will be held, together with paper/poster sessions.

The conference will accept regular papers (6 pages), short papers (4 pages), and demo papers (2 pages). Authors are encouraged to compare their approaches, qualitatively or quantitatively, with existing work and explain the strength and weakness of the new approaches. In addition, a special track encourages “wild and crazy ideas” (4 pages). Selected submissions will be invited to submit to journal special issues.
