10th - 13th May 2015: xLiMe seminar on "Cross-Lingual Cross-Media Content Linking: Annotations and Joint Representations" at Schloss Dagstuhl (Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik).
This seminar addresses the problem of assessing semantic similarity across different content dimensions: channels (TV, news, social media), modalities (text, audio, video), and languages (often the native language plus English). It is designed to discuss recent progress in under-connected research areas, all of which tackle the problem of content diversity. The focus will be on finding general representation and computing approaches which can be adapted to bridge any dimension.
This seminar aims at
* preparing a white paper, which surveys the most pressing research questions and tasks, establishes the state of the art in related research areas and identifies common ground and potential for synergies.
* planning a series of follow-up workshops, based on the white paper, with open challenges dedicated to establishing a standard test bed and benchmark for cross-lingual cross-media content linking.
Co-organised by xLiMe advisor Alex G. Hauptmann (Carnegie Mellon University, Pittburgh, US) and Nicu Sebe (University of Trento, IT), coordinated by Achim Rettinger (KIT, DE).
