Intelligent Multimedia Information Retrieval Systems and Management
Rockefeller University
New York, N. Y.
October 11-13, 1994

Sponsored by the European Union
with the participation of INRIA, France Telecom

Organized by the Centre de Hautes Etudes Internationales
d'Informatique Documentaire (CID, France),  and the
Center for the Advanced Study of Information
Systems (CASIS, USA)

This conference,  held every three years since 1985,  allows researchers,
product developers and companies to present and demonstrate the latest
evolutions in information retrieval.
New trends in hardware organization, telecommunication networks,
hyperlinking, heterogeneous document creation, computational linguistics,
and other fields modify the way that information retrieval can be imagined.
This conference is a forum for innovative responses to this field
as well as to related problems in very large databases, public access to
information,  multimedia information retrieval,
interface specifications,  and others.

In addition to regular paper presentations, the conference will offer
prototype and product demonstrations.

Major topics include, but are not limited to:

  I.   New paradigms for Information Retrieval
  II.  Linguistic Analysis for Automatic Treatment:
             Full-text analysis;
             Indexing and retrieval using NLP;
             Multilingual interfaces and systems;
             Automatic abstracting.
  III. Large Knowledge Bases:
             Electronic dictionaries;
             Thesaurus, hyperbases using semantic
             networks, neuronal networks, conceptual graphs;
             Case-based reasoning systems for text;
             Multi-expert systems;
             Genetic information bases.
  IV.  Digitized Document Understanding and Retrieval:
             Text, sound and image management for IR;
             Automatic extraction of factual information, multimedia
             indexing and retrieval;
             Automatic information structuring and linking in
             hypertext and hypermedia;
             Compound and multisource documents,
             active documents, speech documents
  V.   Information Reading:
             Intelligent navigational aids;
             User understanding and modeling;
             Query formulation and expansion
  VI.  Openness, Interoperability and Integration:
             How to achieve device independent portable information;
             Import/Export facilities;
             Communications between heterogeneous SRIs;
             Intelligent E-mails;
             Systems and interface integration;
             Standardization (SGML, HyTime, ...)
  VII. Multimodal Interfaces:
             Interfaces with several means of interaction (voice,
             mouse, keyboard, pointer, ...);
             Multilingual interfaces;
             Interaction with iconic languages;
             New visualization technologies.
  VIII. Confidentiality and Intellectual Property.
  IX.   Measure and Evaluation.
  X.    Experimental Applications.


Papers must be validated by a prototype or working model.  The authors may
be asked to demonstrate their prototype or working model to a member
of the program committee.  The authors are expected to give a
demonstration of their system during a time separate from their *
presentation.  It is advisable that these demonstrations run oon
standard material.

PAPERS should not exceed 20 double-spaced pages,
including figures and text. Send four copies of paper
including authors names, address, telephone and fax numbers,
e-mail address,  and an abstract of at most 20 lines.

1. CFP: (MM'94) Workshop on Multimedia Data Base Management Systems (M-DBMSs)

                                CALL FOR POSITION PAPERS

                        Workshop on Multimedia Database Management Systems (M-DBMS)

                                        in conjunction with

                        2nd ACM International Conf. on Multi-Media (MM'94)

                                Oct. 15 - 22, 1994, San Francisco, CA.
Bruce Berra, Syracuse University
Kingsley C. Nwosu, AT&T Network Systems
Bhavani Thuraisingham, The MITRE Corporation

This workshop will investigate issues in designing and developing M-DBMSs.  A
M-DBMS which supports distributed applications should integrate the two
technologies of distributed/heterogeneous databases and multimedia data
management.  This integration is one of the greatest challenges faced by  
information systems researchers and developers, and will be the main focus of
this workshop.   The topics to be discussed include the following:

 - data models,
 - storage structures,
 - system, schema and functional architectures,
 - retrieval algorithms,
 - update algorithms,
 - metadata management, etc.  

Participants of the workshop will include members of the database
community and the multimedia information systems community.

Workshop participation is on invitation only based on the acceptance
of a position paper. Prospective participants should submit a 3-5 page
position paper addressing one or more of the above issues or related issues.
Each position paper should include some information about the author's
experience, current projects, affiliations, and full contact information.

Please, submit three copies of your position paper to:

Dr. Bhavani Thuraisingham
