Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
These two-volume proceedings contain the papers presented at MMM 2019, the 25th International Conference on MultiMedia Modeling, held in Thessaloniki, Greece, during January 8–11, 2019. MMM is a leading international conference for researchers and industry practitioners for sharing new ideas, original research results, and practical development experiences from all MMM-related areas, broadly falling into three categories: multimedia content analysis; multimedia signal processing and communications; and multimedia applications and services. MMM 2019 received a total of 204 valid submissions across five categories; 172 full-paper regular and special session submissions, eight demonstration submissions, eight industry session submissions, six submissions to the Video Browser Showdown (VBS 2019), and ten workshop paper submissions. All submissions were reviewed by at least two and, in most cases, three members of the Program Committee, and were carefully meta-reviewed by the TPC chairs or the organizers of each special event before making the final accept/reject decisions. Of the 172 full papers submitted, 49 were selected for oral presentation and 47 for poster presentation. In addition, six demonstrations were accepted from eight submissions, five industry papers from eight submissions, six workshop papers from ten submissions, and all six submissions to VBS 2019. Overall, the program of MMM 2019 included 119 contributions presented in oral, poster, or demo form. MMM conferences traditionally include special sessions that focus on addressing new challenges for the multimedia community; five special sessions were held in the 2019 edition of the conference. In addition, this year’s MMM hosted a workshop as part of its program. Together with the conference’s three invited keynote talks and two tutorials, one industry session, and the Video Browser Showdown, these events resulted in a rich program extending over four conference days. The five special sessions of MMM 2019 were: – SS1: Personal Data Analytics and Lifelogging – SS2: Multimedia Analytics: Perspectives, Tools, and Applications – SS3: Multimedia Datasets for Repeatable Experimentation – SS4: Large-Scale Big Data Analytics for Online Counter-Terrorism Applications – SS5: Time-Sequenced Multimedia Computing and Applications The workshop hosted as part of the MMM 2019 program was: – Third International Workshop on coMics ANalysis, Processing and Understanding (MANPU) We wish to thank the authors of all submissions for sending their work to MMM 2019; and, we owe a debt of gratitude to all the members of the Program Committee and all the special events organizers (Special Sessions, Industry Session, Workshop, VBS) for contributing their valuable time to reviewing these submissions and otherwise managing the organization of all the different sessions. We would also like to thank our invited keynote speakers, Daniel Gatica-Perez from the IDIAP Research Institute and Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, Martha Larson from Radboud University Nijmegen and Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, and Andreas Symeonidis from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, for their stimulating contributions. Similarly, we thank our tutorial speakers, Lucio Tommaso De Paolis from the University of Salento, Italy, and Xavier Giro-i-Nieto from the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, for their in-depth coverage of specific multimedia topics. Finally, special thanks go to the MMM 2019 Organizing Committee members, our proceedings publisher (Springer), and the Multimedia Knowledge and Social Media Analytics Laboratory of CERTH-ITI – both our local organization and support team, and the conference volunteers – for their hard work and support in taking care of all tasks necessary for ensuring a smooth and pleasant conference experience at MMM 2019.
