Workshop "Contextualized Usage and Attention Metadata"Information about the attention users give to resources and how they are used (e.g. number of streaming accesses on a video in a period, the type of tasks being executed while using a resource, at which time a resource is accessed, whether a video is watched completely or not, from which country ratings are made, etc.) can be used to improve retrieval relevance, to help recommend resources, or simply to identify the respect context of the user in which the task is being carried out. To be useful, this information needs to be first systematically collected into potentially large datasets. There are open challenges on how to store this information, how to aggregate and merge it over heterogeneous systems, how to distill the data into information and then into knowledge about the resources and how to use this knowledge to build or enhance multimedia applications.
The objective of this workshop is to research content- and user-centric as well as context-aware methodologies, technologies and systems for tracking and managing usage and attention metadata from different applications.
The workshops invites papers dealing with the following topics. Please note that, as the research field has by no means reached a mature state, papers of ongoing work are very much welcome!
