Abstract: how to build better multimedia information systems? Management and organization of multimedia data has become easier thanks to the wide availability of metadata as well as advances in content-based image retrieval (CBIR); these advances, however, do not address what matters the most: the actual users of multimedia information systems. The goals and aims of users, i.e., their intentions, need to be put into focus in some creative way.
