Call for papers

Important dates

Please, avoid registration procedures during the summer. The University of Zaragoza is expected to be closed from August 1 to August 14, 2018, and with more limited support for administrative services since mid-July until the end of August.

Aim and topics

SMAP 2018 aims to address several issues of semantic and social multimedia technologies and their use in content creation, media adaptation and user profiling. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

In addition, SMAP 2018 seeks proposals for special sessions addressing emerging issues in all the above aspects, that will complement the regular program. If you are interested in organizing a special session, please submit a proposal by email, including a title, abstract/motivation, and if possible a list of potential authors that could be interested in the special session. Authors will have the opportunity to present their work in short papers that will appear in the official SMAP 2018 workshop proceedings.

Submission guidelines

Each submitted paper will be refereed by at least three members of the SMAP 2018 Program Committee, based on its relevance, originality, significance, technical soundness and clarity of expression. Submissions must be in English, and can present mature research or experimental results as well as promising work in progress. Papers must be formatted according to the IEEE 2-column conference article style, with a limit of 6 pages, including all figures, tables and references. A minimum paper length of 4 pages is also imposed.

As with all previous editions of SMAP, all accepted papers are planned to be published by IEEE in IEEE Xplore. SMAP 2018 is supported by IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (technical co-sponsorship).

For your convenience, you may use the LaTeX or MSWord templates. Papers can be submitted via EasyChair in PDF format.
