First International Workshop on Semantic Web Annotations for Multimedia (SWAMM)
Monday 22 May 2006 - Edinburgh, Scotland
To be held as part of the 15th World Wide Web Conference (22-26 May 2006)
The workshop will take place in the Carrick rooms on level 1 of the EICC (Edinburgh International Conference Centre)
The multimedia community has a long tradition in annotating multimedia assets, a tradition that predates the Semantic Web.
The Semantic Web community, on the other hand, has more experience in developing generic languages and tools based on an explicit and formally defined semantics.
In theory, the combination should be ideal: the Semantic Web could be significantly enriched by converting existing annotations and vocabularies to RDF or OWL, and multimedia applications could benefit from extra functionality offered by Semantic Web languages and tools.
In practice, however, much work still needs to be done. This workshop invites contributions on all topics related to annotating multimedia assets using Semantic Web languages and tools.
