The significant increase in the amount of digital video content (TV channels in particular), and the diversification of broadcast possibilities and storage devices, have recently given rise to the emergence of many new services and novel TV program consumption schemes. These new services are basically aimed at making TV content available to users without any constraint on location and/or time. They would allow users to directly find what they are looking for through powerful search engines and human-machine interfaces. Examples of such services are TV-on-demand, interactive TV, Network Personal Video Recorders, catch-up TV, start-over, WebTVs...

The objective of the workshop is twofold. First, it aims at highlighting the need for powerful and automatic audio and video content-based techniques in building novel TV services. The second objective is to bring in professionals and researchers, and to present the recent advances in the field. The workshop will also be open to research works on processing content collected from radio broadcasts. Important added-value services may be built on top of radio content.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • TV stream structuring
  • Content-based audio/video analysis of TV content
  • TV program classification
  • Events of interest detection in TV/radio streams
  • Search engines for TV/radio streams
  • Thematic and semantic clustering of TV programs
  • TV program summarization
  • TV program structure modeling
  • Advanced human machine interfaces for browsing and retrieving TV/radio content
  • Metadata extraction and mining from TV content
  • Low level video/audio feature extraction
  • Duplicate video/audio detection
  • Video and audio fingerprinting/watermarking
  • Audio processing tools for radio content analysis and indexing
  • Novel services and use-cases for making use of TV and radio streams

The workshop will be held in conjunction with ISM 2010 in Taichung, Taiwan, on December 13-15, 2010. It solicits regular technical papers of up to 6 pages (IEEE double-column format). Workshop papers will be official publications of IEEE which will be included in IEEEXplore and also be available as printed workshop proceedings.
