ICMR 2011 will include only one Special Sessions for innovative and frontier topics in the field of multimedia retrieval.
Automatic Tagging and Geo-Tagging in Video Collections and Communities

Subject labels and tags are a convenient and effective form of metadata that support users in quickly and easily finding and re-finding video content.
In video archives and other curated video collections, labeling content with keywords is a
longstanding practice. Although the use of metadata in the form of
tags and geo-tags is widespread and well established, surprisingly many multimedia items
remain under-annotated, or completely un-annotated. This special session is dedicated to the
presentation of algorithms developed to automatically tag or geo-tag videos. The novelty of
such algorithms is that they exploit the full range of information sources available in video
collections and communities. These sources include not only the spoken and visual content of
the video, but also associated textual metadata, collateral text sources and the social context.
The motivation for this special session is to provide a forum that presents research that brings
together established multimodal approaches to annotation, with new methods that make use
of user-contributed annotations and other social information.
This special session complements other events that bring together scientists from the research
community around the topics of social media computing and multimedia. The contribution that will make
to ICMR 2011 lies in the uniqueness of the elements it combines.
The work presented in the special session brings proven techniques
from the areas of multimodal content analysis and information retrieval (IR) together with
new techniques that exploit the advantages of the collection context and social community.
The special session also aims to raise awareness in the multimedia retrieval community of the
important research benefits that can be derived from organizing and participating in
