“Video Content Visualization for Improved Interactive Search”
Special Session at the 2011 ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval (ICMR2011)
April 17-20, 2011, Trento, Italy, http://www.icmr2011.org/
As the amount of recorded videos is heavily increasing every day, facilitating interactive search for visual content is an important topic in the field of multimedia. Many users employ interactive search and navigation in videos when they need to find specific segments or in order to get an overview of the video content. Interactive search tools enable users to perform a visual search in situations where no concrete query can be formulated. Furthermore, these methods can be used to quickly browse through the results of a query performed in a video retrieval application. Given the specific nature of video content, rather complex graphical user interfaces are required to assist users in their interactive information seeking task. This session will cover tools and methods that facilitate interactive search in videos. Approaches that can integrate the potential knowledge of a user about the content to be found in order to speed-up the search process are of particular interest.
