Call For Papers

Requirements and guidance for submitting papers

Full and short papers

Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished research papers in the broad field of content-based multimedia indexing and applications. 

In addition to multimedia and social media search and retrieval, we wish to highlight related and equally important issues that build on content-based indexing, such as multimedia content management, user interaction and visualization, media analytics, etc.

Authors are invited to submit full length (6 pages – to be presented as oral presentation) and short papers (4 pages – to be presented as posters). The submissions are peer reviewed in a single blind process. The language of the workshop is English.

Demo papers

CBMI 2017 is calling for technical demonstrations that will be showcased at the workshop. The topics covered are the same as announced in the main call for papers, among them, but not exclusively, multimedia and social media search and retrieval, user interaction and visualization, multimedia content management and media analytics. 

Authors are invited to submit their demo proposals as demo papers of 4 pages maximum. All peer-reviewed, accepted and registered papers will be published in the workshop’s proceedings. The demos will be presented at CBMI in a dedicated demo session. The submissions will be peer reviewed in single blind process and the workshop will be held in English.
