The importance of Linked Media to the future Web, (published in Companion Publication of the IW3C2 WWW 2013 Conference, May 13–17, 2013, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

If the future Web will be able to fully leverage the scale and quality of online media, a Web scale layer of structured, interlinked media annotations is needed, which we will call Linked Media, inspired by the Linked Data movement for making structured, interlinked descriptions of resources better available online. Mobile and tablet devices, as well as connected TVs, introduce novel application domains that will benefit from broad understanding and acceptance of Linked Media standards. In this talk, I will provide an overview of current practices and specification efforts in the domain of video and Web content integration, drawing from the LinkedTV and MediaMixer projects. From this, I will present a vision for a Linked Media layer on the future Web will can empower new media-centric applications in a world of ubiquitous online multimedia.

Objective/goals of the workshop

If the future Web will be able to fully use the scale and quality of online media, a Web scale layer of structured media annotation is needed, which we call Linked Media. This 1st world wide web workshop on Linked Media (LiME-2013) aims at promoting the principles of Linked Media on the Web by gathering media owner stakeholders and semantic media researchers to exchange current research and development work on online media description creation, publication, and processing. Specifically, we aim to promote a platform where automatic multimedia analysis results can be integrated into online media descriptions, making media more easily shared, queried and re-used. This will offer a wide range of possibilities for various stakeholders in the creative industries. We foresee an opportunity to build a core consensus on Linked Media technology and launch Linked Media for the Web, at the WWW2013 conference. We see WWW as an outstanding opportunity to kick-start collaboration on this emerging field of research.

Statement of significance

To push further the evolution of the Rich Media Web, it is essential to establish consensus on online media annotation standards and demonstrate approaches to leverage them in Web applications. LiME-2013 focuses on identifying the key building blocks required to support the development of new Web tools and interfaces to support the growth and re-use of Linked Media. It will be built on current work in this area and foster collaboration between key stakeholders by supporting discussion also prior and post workshop.

Workshop topics and themes

Today’s Web is a rich media Web – non-textual content is often now the first destination of online agents rather than HTML/textual resources. As a result, access to structured annotation of the online media is increasingly important for new Web applications capable of media search, retrieval, adaptation and presentation. Yet, the online media annotation space is still limited, fragmented and lacking in consensus for building Web tools and interfaces to support it. The W3C Ontology for Media Resources provides mappings between 18 different multimedia metadata schema or standards and took a first step towards a common schema model, which now requires championing in the research and industry communities. The least common denominator approach followed by the W3C group has lead to a small and useful vocabulary that fails to support more advanced use cases that require to describe the multimedia content at a fragment level and go beyond simple tagging. Furthermore, automatic multimedia analysis results are not considered by this vocabulary.

If the future Web will be able to fully use the scale and quality of online media, a Web scale layer of structured media annotation is needed, which we call Linked Media, which is inspired by the Linked Data movement for making structured descriptions of resources more available online. Mobile and tablet devices, as well as connected TV introduce novel application domains that benefit from broad understanding and acceptance of Linked Media standards. LiME-2013 aims at promoting the principles of Linked Media on the Web by gathering media owning stakeholders and semantic media researchers to exchange current research and development work on online media description creation, publication, and processing.

Important aspects to discuss revolve around (1) emerging approaches to online media descriptions (2) extracting such descriptions and linking them to external resources (3) aim to showcase practical use cases in this domain, also covering interaction aspects for single and group users. Workshop topics include, but are not limited to:

1. Approaches to online media descriptions
1.1 Aligning the fragmented approaches to online media description, its publication, and processing
1.2 Tools and approaches to search and retrieval of online media based on its structured description, scaling to the Web
1.3 Addressing issues of trust, quality and rights of online media;
2. Extracting and linking
2.1 Tools and approaches to lower the cost of creating structured descriptions of online media resources;
2.2 New methods of automatic, real time, metadata extraction of any online media content (including live streams);
2.3 Ideas how to incorporate Linked Data into media description (and benefit from the additional metadata of the Linked Data cloud);
2.4 New methods for automatically assessing the suitability of (non-trusted) content for interweaving (e.g. violence detection, nudity detection), and publishing such assessments
3. Showcases, business models and assessment
3.1 New Web applications making use of Linked Media, also across different platforms. Including evaluation with end-users, suitable business models.
3.2 Approaches to tracking user interaction with media (and exploiting this knowledge to enrich annotations);

Submission

Submissions must be formatted according to the ACM SIG Proceedings Template. We encourage various types of submission:

  • full papers (max 8 pages) for mature work which has been subject to evaluation and whose results have been made public / commercialised, or
  • short papers (max 4 pages), for significant work in progress, late breaking results or ideas / challenges for the domain, as well as
  • demo submissions (max 2 pages describing the planned demo), for software and platforms which may be able to support a part of the imaginable Linked Media ecosystem.

Accepted full papers will be presented at length during the workshop, while accepted short papers will be allocated a shorter speaking slot and/or a place in a dedicated poster & demo session (depending on time available). Accepted demos will be included in the dedicated poster & demo session in the workshop.

Submissions must be in PDF and must be done through the EasyChair system at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lime2013

The workshop proceedings will be published through the ACM Digital Library.
