| The International Workshop on Ambient Media Delivery and Interactive Television aims at fostering interdisciplinary discussions and research in all aspects related to the data management challenges associated with the design of ambient media delivery and user aware interactive television systems. |
Through new interactive features, television is becoming a central hub for entertainment, communication, and sharing. Instead of old, push-based broadcasting to set-top-boxes,
new pull-based, interactive services and tighter integration with other
audio/visual entertainment devices enable ambient access to tv programming.
AMDIT 2008 workshop focuses on the data management challenges associated with the design of ambient media delivery and user aware interactive television systems, to make television programmes available and easily accessible in multiple contexts, through diverse media devices.
Papers focusing on data information extraction and storage,
classification, and recommendation are specifically encouraged.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to
with the focus on audiovisual media and television programmes.
- Video content extraction and description
