CALL FOR PAPERS

WORKSHOP ON
KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION FOR INTERACTIVE MULTIMEDIA SYSTEMS:
RESEARCH AND EXPERIENCE (KRIMS'96)

WWW: http://www.darmstadt.gmd.de/CfP/KRIMS96


August 12 1996, Budapest, Hungary

In conjunction with the ECAI'96 conference (August 12-16)

(ECAI'96 WWW: http://wwwis.cs.utwente.nl:8080/mars/ECAI96.html)

WORKSHOP ISSUES
A critical issue in the emerging area of Multimedia Information
Systems is the ability of these systems to fulfil the information
requirements of various user groups.

Future Interactive Multimedia Systems go beyond the scenario-based
example of multimedia information presentation. They have abilities
for multimedia information composition, construction of presentation
plan, intelligent simulation, and adaptation of the presented
material to the peculiarities and style of individual users. To be
capable of performing these functions, interactive multimedia systems
should possess and utilise knowledge about:
o Domain
o User requirements
o Tasks
o Context of interaction
o Content of the stored information.

The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners in developing interactive multimedia systems. The aim
is to investigate the industrial needs and requirements on
representing knowledge for such systems, and identify open research
problems in the area.

Some of the topics that this workshop should address are:

o Generic Knowledge Representation Schemes for Multimedia Information
Repositories.
o Knowledge representation for multimedia information integration,
coordination and presentation.
o Case studies and experiences on developing and utilising
knowledge bases for interactive multimedia systems.

The target audience includes both researchers and practitioners in the
area of interactive multimedia systems.

SUBMISSION
Authors must submit a 2-pages abstract before the 29th of February
1996 via email in plain ASCII. Submitted abstracts will be judged on
the quality and originality of the work they describe. Due to the
restricted number of presentations, qualified submissions will be
accepted on priority basis. Authors must address the motivation of
their work, related background work, innovative features, as well as
limitations of their work.

Paper presentations will not exceed 15 in order to have ample time
for discussion. Authors of accepted submissions will be asked to
provide a full paper describing their work before the 10th of April
1996. Comments to authors will be provided by 30th of April and the
deadline for final paper's receipt is the 20th of May 1996.

Attendees will exchange working notes prior to the workshop and will
be encouraged to discuss and make comments to others' work in order
to settle the ground for fruitful discussions during the workshop.

Enquiries and submissions must be addressed to
