Call For Papers
The rapid growth of multimedia collections world-wide opens new challenges to multimedia technology with respect to crime prevention and investigation. The protection of images, video, and audio data from illegal use, as well as its exploitation in forensics and intelligence, have become serious challenges as the sheer data volume renders a full manual inspection by an expert impossible. Tools are needed to support the protection, management, processing, interpretation, and visualization of multimedia data in the different steps of the investigation process.
Many exciting solutions for related problems have been developed in the multimedia research community (including knowledge extraction, categorization, indexing, browsing and visualization), forming an excellent basis for forensics and intelligence. However, due to the complexity of the targeted material, the lack of structure and meta-data, and other application-specific constraints, approaches must be tailored, adapted, and extended.
The International ACM Workshop on Multimedia in Forensics and Intelligence (MiFor 2011) offers a forum for bringing solutions from multimedia research into forensics and intelligence. The workshop is targeted both at researchers working on innovative multimedia technology and experts developing tools in the field.
The workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
Submissions should follow the ACM Multimedia 2011 workshop paper formatting guidelines, and be 6 pages in length.
