General Information

Extending beyond the borders of culture, art, and science, the search for digital information is one of the major challenges of our time. Digital libraries, bio-computing & medical science, the Internet, streaming video, databases, cultural heritage collections and peer-2-peer networks have created a worldwide need for new paradigms and techniques on how to browse, search, and summarize multimedia collections. MIR 2006 is a peer-reviewed meeting for scientific researchers and users to discuss important challenges in multimedia retrieval.

Following the success of the seven previous MIR workshops held in conjunction with the ACM Multimedia Conferences, the purpose of the 8th ACM SIGMM International Workshop on Multimedia Information Retrieval (MIR 2006) is to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry. We are soliciting original papers that address a wide range of issues in multimedia information retrieval.

MIR has been evolving and growing rapidly and is already the largest dedicated ACM meeting in this research area.
