Call for Papers

SaM (Signals and Multimedia)
Special session at CBMI 2019 – International Conference on Content-Based Multimedia Indexing
4-6 September 2019
Dublin, Ireland

Submissions deadline: May 04, 2019

SaM (Signals and Multimedia) is a special session at CBMI 2019 that aims to bring together researchers who use signals (of any kind) as a means to enrich multimedia data and support access. In our viewpoint, signals represent any form of metadata that accompanies multimedia content, such as locations with photos, annotations with video, etc. The SaM special session welcomes contributions relating to all aspects of signals and multimedia, and particularly from approaches that may leverage atypical types of information that augment how we use or think about indexing, browsing, managing, visualising and analysing multimedia data. Similarly, contributions are welcome from those who use biosignals (e.g. EEG, GSR, ECG, EOG, Eye-tracking, Facial Activity, etc) and other types of human-generated signals.


  • Novel signals for multimedia content, such as biosignals and other novel signal sources,
  • Signals used in indexing, search or visualisation of multimedia content including new approaches to experimental methodologies and paradigms;
  • Perspectives and approaches to improve how we access and use multimedia data using signals;
  • Emerging multimedia access technologies such as VR, AR and pervasive interfaces that integrate signals into the retrieval process;
  • Theory-based contributions on how biosignals may be used in indexing, search or visualisation of multimedia content including experimental methodologies and paradigms;
  • Strategies, algorithms and methods that leverage biosignals (or other novel signal types) to augment multimedia data and its access.


CBMI is the annual conference that brings together the various communities involved in all aspects of content-based multimedia indexing for retrieval, browsing, management, visualisation and analytics. After 15 successful editions of the CBMI workshop, CBMI became a conference in 2018 and the next edition will take place in Dublin, Ireland from 4-6 September 2019. The scientific program will include invited keynote talks, regular papers, demonstration papers and three special sessions on “Medical Image Mining and Health” (MIME), “Signals and Multimedia” (SaM), and “Multimedia Indexing for Comics” (MIC). All papers published at CMBI 2019 will be published by IEEE and all submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three experienced reviewers.


Authors are invited to submit papers (4-6 pages in IEEE double-column format) via the submission site of CBMI 2019 to “Special Session: Signals and Multimedia” track. Each submission will be peer-reviewed by 2-3 PC members.
