The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from different fields with interest in applications of data mining, artificial intelligence and computer vision in processing video and image resources. The wide spread use of social networks allows people to upload and share their personal images and videos. Low cost storage and image/video capturing devices have led to the availability of huge amounts of multimedia data, such as pictures and video records, which come at the cost of increased pressure to process them. More research needs to be done in terms of processing, analyzing, mining, managing and searching multimedia visual data. We are looking for original and high-quality submissions that address the evolution and recent developments of various multimedia visual information processing methodologies, ranging from statistical, fuzzy sets, neural, evolutionary, to hybrid soft computing for analyzing, organizing and retrieving of images and videos from the databases.
The topics for this workshop include all aspects of applying intelligent techniques to multimedia visual information processing including, but not limited to:
• Machine learning
• Fuzzy logic
• Evolutionary computation
• Data mining approaches
• Graph-based approaches
• Statistical methods
• Hybrid intelligent methods
• Intelligent agents
• Rough sets


• Intelligent content-based image and video retrieval
• Object, image and video classification
• Semantic image analysis
• Object detection and localization
• Semantic-driven context-aware visual information analysis
• Semantic image segmentations
• Local and global image labeling and annotation
• Multiple cues visual information fusion
• Intelligent similarity methods for image and video retrieval
• Visual feature extraction and description
• Visual information processing
• Mining visual information from online social networks
• Face analysis
• Medical image processing
