SITIS 2019 – The 15th International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet based Systems

SITIS - International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet Based Systems

I-MIRA 2019

The second Workshop on Intelligent Multimedia Information Retrieval and Applications

Collocated with: 

26-29 November 2019 - Sorrento, Italy

Scope of the Workshop
The huge expansion growth of online multimedia and other social media appearing on mobile, wearable and other devices or network has become extremely accelerated in recent years. The Intelligent Multimedia Information Retrieval and Applications (I-MIRA) workshop is based on emerging interdisciplinary multimedia research and system development dealing with conventional and big multimedia data. In 2019 the workshop focuses on the research on cutting-edge methods, applications and services using multimedia analysis, processing and machine learning as well as their applications and services for the retrieval, classification, semantics and detection of multimedia information including 3D/VR/AR/MR even in big multimedia databases. The workshop also welcomes novel topics that can help to establish semantical and contextual relations among participants and attendees based on the information of their interest

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Multimedia Analysis and Processing
