Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished research papers in the broad field of content-based multimedia indexing and applications. We wish to highlight significant contributions addressing the main problem of search and retrieval. This call also includes artificial intelligence inmultimedia analysis, user interaction, social media indexing and retrieval. In addition, special sessions on specific technical aspects or application domains are planned, such as Multimedia for Healthcare, Explainability of AI tools in Multimedia, Physical models in Multimedia mining…

The CBMI proceedings are traditionally indexed and distributed by ACM DL. Best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their contributions to a special issue of a leading journal in the field.
