Welcome to the website of the First SIAM SDM Workshop on Multimedia Data Mining
The theme of this year's workshop is "mining multimodal correlations from mix-media structured and unstructured data sets." However, papers in areas related to general topics of multimedia data mining are welcome to submit. For a list of topics of interest, please see this page.
We welcome submissions in mining general multi-modal data sets, including web images, scientific databases (bio-imaging, astronomy, geo-spatial, etc.), time series, video clips, and so on. Papers from related workshops can be found here.
The Multimedia Data Mining workshop at the 2009 SIAM SDM conference, brings together experts from various fields: digital media, multimedia database, multimedia information retrieval, spatial data analysis, web search, collaborative virtual environments, and of course, data mining and knowledge discovery. The goal is to provide a venue where researchers from both academia and industry can exchange latest results and advances in the general area of multimedia data mining.
