Call for Papers

SUMAC 2022
The 4th workshop on Structuring and Understanding of Multimedia heritage

10 or 14 October 2021 (TBA)
Lisbon, Portugal (attendance mode TBA)

In conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2022

Aims and scope

The digitisation of large quantities of analogue data and the massive
production of born-digital documents for many years now provide us with
large volumes of varied multimedia data (images, maps, text, video, 3D
objects, multi-sensor data, etc.), an important feature of which is that
they are cross-domain. “Cross-domain” reflects the fact that these data may
have been acquired in very different conditions: different acquisition
systems, times and points of view (e.g. a 1962 postcard from the Arc de
Triomphe vs. a recent street-view acquisition by mobile mapping of the same
monument). These data represent an extremely rich heritage that can be
exploited in a wide variety of fields, from Social Sciences and Humanities
to land use and territorial policies, including smart city, urban planning,
smart tourism and culture, creative media and entertainment. In terms of
research in computer science and artificial intelligence, they address
challenging problems related to the diversity, specificity and volume of
the media, the variety of content descriptors (potentially including the
time dimension), the veracity of the data, and the different user needs
with respect to engaging with this rich material and the extraction of
value out of the data. These challenges are reflected in various research
topics such as multimodal and mixed media search, automatic content
analysis, multimedia linking and recommendation, and big data analysis and
visualisation where scientific bottlenecks may be exacerbated by the time
dimension – which also provides topics of interest such as multimodal time
series analysis. The objective of this workshop is to present and discuss
the latest and most significant trends in the analysis, structuring and
understanding of multimedia contents dedicated to the valorization of
heritage, with the emphasis on enabling access to the big data of the past.
We welcome research contributions for the following (but not limited to)

   - Multimedia and cross-domain data search, interlinking and
   recommendation• Dating and spatialization of historical data
   - Mixed media data access and indexing
   - Multi-modal deep learning
   - Deep learning in adverse conditions (transfer learning, learning with
   side information, etc.)
   - Multi-modal time series analysis, evolution modelling
   - Multi-modal & multi-temporal data rendering
   - Heritage - Building Information Modelling, Art Virtualisation
   - HCI / Interfaces for large-scale datasets
   - Smart digitisation of massive quantities of data
   - Bench-marking, Open Data Movement
   - Generative modelling of cultural heritage

Submission guidelines

Submission format. All submissions must be original work not under review
at any other workshop, conference, or journal. The workshop will accept
papers describing completed work as well as work in progress. One
submission format is accepted: full paper, which must follow
the formatting guidelines of the main conference ACM MM 2022. Full papers
should be from 6 to 8 pages (plus 2 additional pages for the references),
encoded as PDF and using the ACM Article Template. For paper guidelines,
please visit, and refer to the
"Paper Format" under "Submission Instructions". Peer Review and publication
in ACM Digital Library. Paper submissions must conform with the
“double-blind” review policy. All papers will be peer-reviewed by experts
in the field, they will receive at least two reviews. Acceptance will be
based on relevance to the workshop, scientific novelty, and technical
quality. Depending on the number, maturity and topics of the accepted
submissions, the work will be presented via oral or poster sessions. The
workshop papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

Dear TEI community

The ERC Advanced Grant Project “From Digital to Distant Diplomatics”
wants to take stock of the different projects and approaches to the
topic of “digital diplomatics” with the conference “Digital Diplomatics
2022: From Digital to Distant Diplomatics?” (Graz, 28–30 September 2022).

The international conference is intended to offer all scholars
interested in this complex of topics the opportunity for discussion and
exchange, from questions about digital support in the formal and content
analysis of documents, to the planning and implementation of
digitisation projects in archives and libraries, to the future direction
of this new research field.

Deadline for the proposals is 3rd July 2022. Please find further
information on the call at

We are looking forward to you applications. Please feel free to forward
and distribute this call!
