Call for Papers - IEEE Workshop on Broadcast and User-generated Content Recognition and Analysis (BRUREC) at ICME 2013

Dear Auditory List,

On behalf of the BRUREC 2013 Committee, we would like to invite you to be part of the 1st IEEE International Workshop on Broadcast and User-generated Content Recognition and Analysis (BRUREC - http://www.BRUREC.org), held in conjunction with ICME 2013 (http://www.icme2013.org), between July 15-19 in San Jose, California USA. 

A PDF call for papers is accessible at: https://sites.google.com/site/icmebrurec/CfPs_BRUREC.pdf?attredirects=0&d=1. If you have any enquiries, please get in touch with me (jhan@xxxxxxxxxxxxx) or email BRUREC2013@xxxxxxxxx

Please help us circulate this CfPs widely and forgive any cross-postings.

Best regards,

*************** FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS ***************


*** 1st IEEE International Workshop on Broadcast and User-generated Content Recognition and Analysis (BRUREC) at ICME 2013***


***** July 15-19, 2013 • Fairmont Hotel, San Jose, USA | http://www.BRUREC.org *****


In the past decade, we have seen great advancement in the area of visual and acoustic content recognition and analysis. Audio fingerprinting, for example, has led to many successful commercial applications and fundamentally changed the way people listen to, share and store music. In the meanwhile, research and development in visual content identification has reached a watershed, and large-scale commercial applications have started to emerge. Automated Content Recognition (ACR) applications have found their way into consumer applications. In the meanwhile, major Hollywood movie studios and TV networks have adapted ACR to track and manage their content at large scale. While broadcast quality video and audio analysis is already at an advanced stage, consumer-produced content analysis is not. Great potential exists on the media connectivity between broadcast media and user-generated content.   Therefore, in the last few years, user-generated content has attracted increasing attention from both academia and industry. 

This workshop aims to extend the ICME conference by focusing on algorithms, systems, applications, and standards for content recognition and analysis that can be applied across video and audio domains. BRUREC will cover all aspects on multimedia data generated by broadcast media such as TV and Radio as well as user-generated content such as Youtube and Vimeo. The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners in both industry and academia in the scientific community of content recognition and analysis across video, audio and multimedia domains to discuss the latest advance, challenges and unaddressed problems as well as exchange views, ideas in related technologies and applications, in which we attempt to advance the State of the Art of Broadcast and User-generated Content Recognition and Analysis.
