A Call for Papers has just been announced by the IEEE MultiMedia magazine on the area of Social Multimedia and Storytelling: Using Social Media to Capture, Mine, and Recreate Experiences, Events, and Places.

The magazine welcomes contributions that investigate how social multimedia is transforming the way multimedia content is captured, shared, and made available to others. In particular, on the different stages of the lifecycle for social multimedia content — from the moment something is captured, through its online sharing, collection, and processing to its remixing, repurposing, retrieval, and presentation. An indicative list of target topics includes the following:
  • place- and event-centric social multimedia discovery and collection;
  • social event detection;
  • real-world place and event mining and analytics;
  • place and event summarization through social content;
  • social network and interaction analysis around places and events;
  • social media content geotagging and applications;
  • dynamic image and video mash-ups on real-world places and events;
  • social media visualization and aggregation of places and events
  • event- and location-based storytelling using social media;
  • interactive social media applications;
  • sentiment and engagement analysis using social media.
The SI submission deadline is July 20, 2014.
