Introduction

Huge amounts of multimedia data are increasingly available and the knowledge of spatial and/or temporal phenomena becomes critical for many applications, which requires techniques for the processing, analysis, search, mining, and management of multimedia data. The 12th IEEE International Workshop on Multimedia Information Processing and Retrieval (IEEE-MIPR 2016) will take place in San Jose, California, USA on December 11-13, 2016, in conjunction with IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM 2016). The workshop will provide a forum for original research contributions and practical system design, implementation, and applications of multimedia information processing and retrieval. The target audiences will be university researchers, scientists, industry professionals, software engineers and graduate students who need to become acquainted with new theories and technologies in multimedia information processing and retrieval.

Selected submissions will be invited to be submitted as full papers for a special issue to the International Journal of Multimedia Data Engineering and Management (IJMDEM) - indexed by Thomson Reuters, Web of Science.

Due to many requests, the full paper submission deadline has been extended to August 23, 2016.
