Workshop on multImedia Techniques for augmEnted Reality: PResence and Emotion in virtual environmenT (InTERPRET)
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are nowadays part of the daily life of people for entertainment, shopping, travelling, as well as for professional. The user is now at the center not only as a customer but also as an information provider; therefore, the relation between the human being and the technology becomes essential. People do not communicate with words only but also with facial expression and gesture that express emotional states. When two or more people get connected, understanding the emotions of each other is important to carry out an effective communication. The sensation of “being there” in a virtual situation assures a natural interaction with the technology and improves its effectiveness. The scope of this second edition of InTERPRET workshop is to investigate new approaches for involve users’ emotional states in advanced human/computer interaction. The workshop will bring together researchers, psychologists, designers and human/computer experts, both from academia and industry, with a common objective: go beyond the frontiers of today interactivity in Virtual Environments.

Dependable Trustworthy Web & Distributed System (DTWD2013)
Today, individual end users as well as organizations like companies and countries face the increasing scale and complexity of information systems connected by networks. This is due to a variety of causes such as the spread of the Internet and distributed computer systems, the rapid increase of personal mobile devices like laptops, smart phones and tablets in their number and variety, the emergence of the "Internet of Things" brought about by the advance of embedded systems, ad-hoc networks and LSI processing technology, and the advent of large-scale computing environment like cloud computers and high performance computing systems. Services and devices are interconnected and interdependent, and the design, the implementation and the management of such a system is almost impossible without considering the existence of other systems that are or will be connected to it. The dependability of such interconnected and interdependent information systems is based on that of individual devices and services. And, it is crucial to know how dependability of the whole system is achieved through that of elemental systems. Also, today's Internet and ubiquitous computing environments include autonomous information systems and services which are owned by different people and organizations for different purposes. They are connected via communication links to realize complex information services which are provided to various users and clients. Individual service providers and users have to determine whether other subjects that they interact with are trustworthy or not. The aim of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for participants to exchange ideas and to share experiences on the interconnected and interdependent systems that consist of autonomous individual systems to study dependability and trust in such systems.Workshop website (click here)

Image/video based Interactive Systems and Environment (IVISE 2013)
Studies in multimedia systems opened up possibilities to handle image, video, and/or audio data with more freedom and flexibility. Offering intuitive and more effective multimedia data handling environment especially for non-expert users of computer systems is one of the urgent issue to catch up the progress of rich hardware environment for image/video data. Recent progress of devices such as small high resolution LCD display with tough panel, depth image sensors, and so on, enabled to interact with a system in more intuitive way, and low-power high performance processors enabled to handle video data even for mobile devices such as smart phones. It is clear that the acceptance of a system by general users largely depends on the usability of a system. One of the solutions for this issue is to improve intuitiveness with the aid of image/video data. In this workshop we put more focus on the aspect of interaction with the aid of image/video data for the better usability and more intuitiveness of systems. In this workshop, we would like to discuss not only theoretical issues but also typical applications and environments which focus on better utilization of image/video data.

Workshop on Situation Aware Computing (SACOM2013)
Situation-aware computing is an emerging computation paradigm for achieving automatic awareness of environmental elements, recognizing their meaning in a particular situation. A number of situation-aware systems have been developed that can dynamically adapt to changing environments; however, the level of situation awareness of web-based services and systems is still low, as the vast majority of existing approaches do not take into account any situational information integrated or infused from various kinds of sensors including that from mobile phone or wearable computers. The SACOM workshop aims to bring together researchers with wide-ranging backgrounds to identify important research questions, to exchange ideas from different research disciplines, and, more generally, to facilitate discussion and innovation in the area of web-based situation-aware computing.

International Workshop on Resilient Internet based Systems (REIS 2013)
Internet based systems (ISs) amongst disasters are expected to function as far as possible and therefore assumed to be as resilient as possible against disasters. In fact, the ISs are of the utmost importance and one of the most prerequisite social infrastructures, together with the mass media, which are required to function properly in natural disasters and/or social ones with the social dimensions like earthquakes, tsunami, fires, terrorism and nuclear accidents, etc. In particular the recent East Japan Earthquake of 3.11 in 2011, together with the subsequent Tsunami and the Nuclear Accident, and other concerned disasters have provided us with a huge and the unprecedented social fields, from which we are to analyze the information systems with the social dimensions and thus to learn and improve the internet based systems in our society. Therein the disasters are exactly the situation where the existing social systems are out of order and therefore the place for us to improve the internet based systems thereupon. The ISRAD workshop thus aims to bring together the informatics researchers which range the related interdisciplinary fields with technological as well as social facets of the issues for the purpose of analyzing and improving the internet based systems resilient against disasters in our contemporary society.

Social Media Utilization Environment (SMUE2013)
In the field of multimedia image processing, semantic multi-media retrieval has been in a main focus of research for the last two decades. Recently a large number of cutting-edge algorithms have been developed using object recognition techniques for predetermined domains such as identifying animals and plants over the Internet or large datasets. In order to overcome the so-called "semantic gap", content-based image retrieval methods using low-level visual features have been exploited and applied at early years until now. Today newer methods have been developed. Artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques applying mainly unsupervised learning is a focused research area. A more recent research, which is gaining an increased interest, is connecting low-level features with contextual and conceptual information. Meanwhile, emergence of high-end devices such as smart phones comes with a wide variety of metadata. Selectively applying some useful metadata can further improve intelligence of the semantic multi-media research environment.

Workshop on Knowledge Acquisition, Reuse and Evaluation (KARE 2013) 

The International Workshop on Knowledge Acquisition, Reuse and Evaluation aims to bring together researchers, scientists, engineers, and scholar students to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results about all aspects of Knowledge, Ontology and Semantic Web Services Engineering. We will discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted. This workshop will focus on the theoreticians and practitioners concerned with developing methods and systems that assist the knowledge management process and assessing the suitability of such methods. Thus, the workshop includes all aspects of acquiring, modeling and managing knowledge, and their role in the construction of knowledge-based systems. Knowledge acquisition still remains the bottleneck for building a knowledge based system. Reuse and sharing of knowledge bases are major issues and no satisfactory solutions have been agreed upon yet. There is a wide range of research. Much of the work in this field has been knowledge acquisition. The advent of the age of digital information has brought the problem of knowledge reuse and knowledge evaluation. Our ability to analyze, evaluate and assist user in reusing knowledge present a great challenge of the next years. A new generation of computational techniques and tools is required to support the acquisition, the reuse and the evaluation of useful knowledge from the rapidly growing volume of information.
