The objective of this Special Issue is to collect and report on recent high quality research that addresses the problem of mass digital media content generation and sharing. As social media keep extending over the Web as we know it, new innovative dynamics are formed in the sense of media content acquiring and sharing trends. Research in this area is important to combine the fields of semantics and knowledge engineering within social media platforms, mainly because of the overwhelming amount of disseminated information and different contextualization types. High quality contributions addressing related theoretical and practical aspects are expected.

Topics of interest

include, but are not limited to the following semantic media adaptation & personalization aspects in social media:

  • Content creation, annotation and modelling for semantic social web
  • Context-aware multimedia applications
  • Semantics-driven indexing and retrieval of multimedia contents
  • Social network aggregation
  • Semantics-based recommender systems: theory and applications
  • User modelling and dynamic profiling
  • Semantic context modelling and extraction
  • Adaptive and personalized multimedia summaries
  • Social and semantic media collaboration platforms (e.g. semantic wikis)
  • Intelligent personalized interfaces
  • Social multimedia tagging and multimedia content communities
  • Hybrid socio-semantic approaches to profiling, recommendation engines or adaptation systems
  • Content customization and adaptation
