Workshop Description
--------------------
Humans think in terms of events and entities. Events provide a natural
abstraction of happenings in the real world. The concept of events has a long
history in foundational sciences such as philosophy and linguistics. After
first developing objects-based and entity-based approaches, computer science
research is now addressing the concept of events and building many applications
that consider events at least as important as objects. Consequently, we find
many different solutions and approaches for modeling, detecting, and
processing events. In addition, we find different applications that are based
on events and make use of events.
Conferences and workshops on events in computer science typically deal with
the capturing, processing, and management of low-level events such as publish/
subscribe-approaches, middleware-based architectures, complex event processing,
and event stream processing. Although this work is very essential for an
efficient execution of the applications build on top of such approaches, the
understanding of the concept of events is disconnected from the domain-level of
events that the actual users of such applications have to deal with. However,
considering multimedia data, its semantics is naturally closely tied to the
event(s) it documents.
The workshop focuses on how to detect, model, and process domain-level events
and applications that make use of domain-level events in the context of
multimedia data. We aim at bringing together researchers from the different
fields that are interested in understanding the concept of events on
domain-level. We invite original work in the areas of domain event modeling,
detection of events from multimedia data, processing of events, organization
of multimedia data using events as unifying mechanism, and applications of
these techniques. The submissions should explicitly explain how they deal with
the events of the considered domain and what kind of benefit is provided to the
users by using events. Example application areas for events are multimedia-based
experience sharing, lifelogs, emergency response, cultural heritage, news,
surveillance, and others.

The participants of the workshop will gain an insight into the current
state-of-the-art of computer science research on domain-level events. They will
get concrete examples of how events can be leveraged for human-centered research
and how it can be detected, processed, modeled, and used for creating human-
centered applications. They will also have the opportunity to discuss their
approach with other researchers from the multimedia community in the hands-on
part of the workshop.

Topics
------
Research topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:
O Event Detection and Processing in Multimedia Data
  o Recognition of events from large scale, unreliable and/or noisy media data
    and media streams
  o Event clustering towards domain level-events
  o Combining low-level events with domain-level events

O Event Representation and Event Models
  o Modeling of events on domain-level
  o Ontology-based representation of events
  o Languages for events
  o Formal modeling of events, activities, accomplishments, achievements,
    context, and other related concepts
  o Reasoning with events under consideration of causality, uncertainty,
    similarity, and others
  o Semantic description and annotation for events and event sources

O Events in the Context of Web 2.0
  o Collaborative event creation and sharing
  o Events in social networks
  o Event syndication (e.g., RSS) and attention management

O Architectures for Event Management
  o Middleware solutions for event management
  o Event-driven architectures
  o Experimental methodologies
  o Domain-specific solutions for event management such as for
    emergency response

O Applications and Tools
  o Event-based applications and tools
  o Authoring of events
  o Events in mobile computing and ubiquituous computing
  o Applications that show benefits of using events in practical settings
  o User experience, requirements, use cases, and evaluations of event-based
    applications

Paper Submission, Review, and Publication
-----------------------------------------
Submissions for the workshop must follow the standard style guidelines of the
ACM Multimedia  conference. They shall be submitted in PDF format and not be
longer than 8 pages. Papers will be submitted using the EDAS system  of ACM
Multimedia. In submitting a manuscript to this workshop, the authors
acknowledge that no paper substantially similar in content has been submitted
to another workshop, conference, or journal.
All submitted papers will undergo a double-blind peer review process. At least
three reviewers from the PC members and external reviewers will evaluate the
originality, significance, clarity, soundness, relevance, and technical
contents of the submitted manuscripts.

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings together with the
proceedings of the ACM Multimedia 2009 conference. Based on the quality of the
manuscripts, selected papers will be invited to submit to a special issue of a
top journal in the multimedia area (tbd).
