The Second Workshop on Visual Content Identification and Search (VCIDS'11)
Research and development in visual content identification and search have reached a watershed that large-scale commercial applications start to emerge. In the last few years, major Hollywood movie studios and TV networks have adopted video fingerprinting and content identification technologies to track and manage their content at the Internet scale. In the meantime, major Internet search engines such as Google and Microsoft Bing have added content-based visual similarity search to supplement traditional keyword-based queries. While the wave of commercialization is underway, many technical challenges remain and significant progress is made continuously in research and development. VCIDS'11 aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in both industry and academia to discuss the latest advances and exchange views and ideas in algorithms, systems, applications and standards for visual content identification and search.
Paper submission deadline has been extended to March 7, 2011.
