JCDL 2018 Workshop on Image Collections: Creation, Organization, Access, and Use (Call for Papers)


We are delighted to invite you to submit your work for presentation at JCDL 2018 (https://2018.jcdl.org/) Workshop on Image Collections: Creation, Organization, Access, and Use.


This workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to exchange research ideas on image collections, including the creation, organization, access, and use (COAU) of various image datasets. We expect to discuss various theories, methods, techniques, challenges, and new research directions as related to image’s COAU. Especially we would like to explore innovative ideas on image annotation, retrieval, use behavior & personas, processing of different types of images, and visual image metrics. The workshop will allow researchers to communicate with their peers on projects and develop new ideas through presentation and discussion. We hope to establish a community of researchers from related disciplines and explore questions critical to the future development of image’s COAU. Participants of this workshop will be invited to submit a full paper to a special issue at The Electronic Library (http://www.emeraldinsight.com/journal/el) on Image Collections. 



Following are the possible topics (but not limited to) we would like to call for submissions:

  • Creation of large image collections
  • Theories and/or framework for image annotation (image tagging)
  • Image categorization and classification
  • Image retrieval and image results diversification
  • Viziometrics or visual image metrics
  • Innovative technologies on image processing and analysis
  • Image seeking and use
  • Medical images mining and analysis
  • Social images sharing and understanding
  • Data extraction from images

However, a full paper that is no longer than 6,000 words needs to be written at the time when the workshop is held.
