Journal of Multimedia Processing and Technologies - Special issue on Theory and Application of Visual Analytics - Call for Papers


The Journal of Multimedia Processing and Technologies (JMPT) aims to provide a multi-disciplinary forum to present and discuss theory and research, development, architectures, networking, system support tools and applications as well as case studies of multimedia and hypermedia. It also features experimental and survey articles. It seeks to fill the gap that exists between several fields and communities such as image processing, video processing, audio analysis, information retrieval and understanding, data management and mining, security, and education.

The special issue on Theory and Application of Visual Analytics will collect theoretical advances and practical applications of Visual Analytics for semantic and multimedia systems.

Visual Analytics is the science of analytical reasoning supported by interactive visual techniques. It integrates techniques from visualization and computer graphics, statistics and mathematics, data management and knowledge representation, data analysis and machine learning and cognitive and perceptual sciences. Real-world applications in areas like multimedia retrieval, media analysis or investigation of semantic graphs require efficient access and analysis of massive, heterogeneous, dynamic knowledge repositories which frequently contain ambiguous or conflicting evidence . Visual Analytics advocates a promising combination of automatic analysis and human pattern recognition abilities and domain knowledge to address this challenge.

We encourage submission of original research papers reporting on theoretical advances, evaluation results or applications of Visual Analytics in relevant real-world scenarios. All submissions will be peer reviewed by a board of international experts.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Visual representations and interaction techniques
  • Visualisation of search results, e.g. in multimedia corpora
  • Visualisation of knowledge structures, e.g. semantic graphs
  • Visualisation of temporal and spatial data
  • Human computer interfaces for knowledge and information visualisation
  • New display and interaction technologies, i.e. multitouch and stereoscopic 3D
  • Analytical reasoning support, i.e. discourse and collaborative visualization
  • Data management and knowledge representations
  • Data analysis and machine learning
  • Knowledge relationship discovery
  • Cognitive and perceptual factors in Visual Analytics
  • Empirical studies of Visual Analytics techniques
  • Evaluation of Visual Analytics techniques
  • Application reports, i.e. success stories or stories on spectacular failures
