4th International Workshop on Semantic Media Adaptation and Personalization
December 14-15, 2009, San Sebastian, Spain
The Semantic Media Adaptation and Personalization (SMAP) Initiative was founded during the summer of 2006 in an effort to discuss the state of the art, recent advances and future perspectives for semantic media adaptation. After three successful workshops, SMAP 2006 (Athens, Greece), SMAP 2007 (London, United Kingdom), and SMAP 2008 (Prague, Czech Republic) the Semantic Media Adaptation and Personalization workshop series has consolidated as a reference event in order to discuss about the newest advances in the field, including a 2-days main track of high-quality scientific papers. Thus, the 4th SMAP workshop
SMAP 2009 will aim to address several issues of semantic multimedia technologies in multilingual environments such as, but not limited to:
We strive to have a diverse academic audience, varying from young researchers working on PhD level to experts in the field. Theworkshop aims to provide a platform for exchanging fresh ideas and expertise, and for obtaining feedback on ongoing research. As with previous SMAPs, plans are in place to have all the papers presented at the workshop published by the IEEE Computer Society and selected papers to appear either in an edited volume or in a special journal issue.
