Welcome to MIR 2001's web site !
Following the success of the two previous workshops, MISRM 1999, and MIR 2000, both held in conjunction with the respective ACM Multimedia Conferences, we are organizing a third edition of the Inlt. Workshop on Multimedia Information Retrieval, MIR 2001, to be held jointly with ACM Multimedia 2001. Its purpose is to bring together researchers, developers and practitioners from academia and industry. The workshop will serve as a forum for discussion, presentation, and exploration of techniques, approaches and experiences in the field of multimedia information retrieval.

This year's program will feature fifteen technical papers and one invited talk by eMotion's Inc. CTO and VP-Technology, Dr. Sharon Flank. Please, see the Workshop Program page for details as well as slides from the invited talk (new !). We look forward to seeing you in Ottawa, Canada's capital.

New applications, such as those in training, simulating, and e-business, require management of large amounts of data, most of which in non-traditional types. Such applications require integrated tools for modeling, understanding, visualizing, retrieving, and accessing the data. This leads to the development of novel techniques for media analysis, similarity retrieval,  and query management. The purpose of the International Workshop on Multimedia Information Retrieval (MIR) is to bring together researchers, developers and practitioners from academia and industry. The workshop serves as a forum for discussion, presentation, and exploration of techniques, approaches and experiences in the field of multimedia information retrieval. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

The program committee solicits condensed research papers describing new results or original ideas related to the workshop topics. Electronically submitted papers (in either PDF or PS format) should be in English and not exceed 10 double spaced pages. The first page must include the paper's title, name/affiliation of the author(s) as well as contact information, e.g., addresses, email (required), fax and telephone numbers. Alternatively, authors may also submit papers in the required final four pages camera-ready format required by ACM. Proceedings of the ACM Multimedia 2001 Workshops will be published by ACM Press. Note that ACM requires necessary copyright clearance for all the papers for both printed and electronic version of the proceedings.

Expanded versions of the best accepted papers will be recommended for publication (subject to further reviewing) in an Special Issue of the Journal of Multimedia Tools and Applications.
