Workshop Objective


The past years have witnessed a large number of interesting applications of various soft computing techniques, such as fuzzy logic, rough sets,  neural networks, and evolutionary computation, to intelligent multimedia processing.  Multimedia computing problems such as content analysis, indexing and retrieval, recognition and compression, or processing and filtering.  This workshop  will focus mainly on the problems and applications that deal with the multimedia processing using  Soft Computing  techniques as an emerging research area.  Recommended topics include but are not limited to the following:


*       Soft-computing for Spoken interface for data retrieval

*       Soft-computing for Music Similarity, Clustering and Understanding

*       Soft-computing for Audio/Video indexing for the Web

*       Soft computing for knowledge extraction from image data;

*       Soft computing for knowledge extraction from sound data;

*       Soft computing for knowledge extraction from video data;

*       Soft computing for internet multimedia information access

*       Soft computing for Intelligent agents for multimedia

*       Soft computing for Multi-modal event detection and recognition

*       Soft computing for Retrieval from multi-modal life logs

*       Soft computing for High performance multimedia databases

*       Soft computing for Fusion of Multimedia

*       Soft computing for Content based retrieval of novel media

*       Soft computing for Supported information visualization, browsing and navigation

*       Soft computing for Classification and indexing of multimedia information objects

*       Soft computing for Multimedia data mining methods and algorithms;

*       Soft computing for Complexity, and scalability of multimedia mining algorithms;

*       Soft computing for Classification of multimedia documents;

*       Soft computing for Preprocessing and representation of multimedia data;

*      Etc.....
