The SMAM workshop at ISWC 2013
provides a forum to explore and promote the applications of
Semantic Web Technologies in the domain of music and time-based media. Emerging
activities in research, development and production, driven by projects in both academia and
industry, are already spanning many aspects of the creation, management, discovery,
delivery and analysis of musical and media content. This workshop brings together this
community to share information and practice, and especially to
articulate the research agenda in Semantic Music and Media, e.g. "end-to-end
semantics" through the lifecycle of digital media.
This workshop aims at facilitating innovation and helping to achieve the full potential of Semantic
Web in this domain, as well as informing Semantic Web research and its application to this area.
- David De Roure and Yves Raimond Introduction
- Raphaël Troncy Deep-linking into Media Assets at the Fragment Level: Specification, Model and Applications (show abstract, slides)
Semantic descriptions of non-textual media available on the Web can
facilitate retrieval, re-use and presentation of media assets. Semantic
Web languages can represent controlled vocabularies and shared
annotations of media content on the Web. By identifying concepts to
consider, Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) are the building blocks of
the Semantic Web. Often, particular regions of an image or particular
sequences of an audio or a video resource need to be localized and
uniquely identified in order to be used as subject or object resource in
an RDF annotation. In this talk, we will first present the Media
Fragment URI specification, a recent W3C recommendation that enables to
uniquely identifying sub-parts of media assets in the same way that the
fragment identifier in the URI can refer to part of an HTML or XML
document. We will then describe models and ontologies that we will
illustrate with several real world applications using semantic
annotations attached to media fragments in the music and the TV domains.
Those applications are developed in the context of the European projects
and the French project WAVE.
- Peter Haase Mapping, Interlinking and Exposing MusicBrainz as Linked Data (slides)
- David Bainbridge Unchained Melody: Redefining the Boundaries to a Music Digital Library Through Linked Data (show abstract, slides)
Despite being borne over the web, conventional digital library software
architectures---from which many of our leading Music Digital Libraries
(MDLs) are formed---result in digital resources that are, surprisingly,
disconnected from other on-line sources of information. Leveraging from
(and also contributing too!) the ever growing body of music linked data,
in this talk I will demonstrate a new form of music digital library that
encompasses management, discovery, delivery and analysis of the musical
content it contains. In doing so, the developed software architecture
alters the boundaries to what is conventionally thought of as a digital
library---challenging core assumptions made in digital library software

- Music and media content resolution
- Semantic Web in musicology
- Sonification and composition techniques in the context of the Semantic Web
Producing and publishing music and media-related data on the Semantic Web
- Annotations, ground truth collections and crowd-sourcing for music and media collections
- Uniquely identifying music resources on the Web
- Automatic interlinking of music- and media- related datasets
- Learning ontologies and structured music data from Web mining
- Publishing the results of content-based analysis on the Semantic Web
- Semantic Web technologies in the recording studio
- Capturing annotations at source in composition and performance
Managing music and media-related data
- Management of libraries, archives and digital collections
- Managing music analysis services and workflows
- Semantic Web services for music and media processing, rights, policies, payment
- Preserving Semantic Web data through remixing and re-use
Modelling music and media-related data
- Music and media metadata, from production to personal applications
- Ontologies and knowledge representation for the music and time-based media domains
- Representations for time-based navigation e.g. musical and narrative structures
This half-day workshop is aimed at an interdisciplinary audience of researchers and practitioners involved or interested
in the Semantic Web and its applications to music and time-based media.
All papers must represent original and unpublished work that is not currently under review. Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the workshop.
We welcome the following types of contributions:
- Full papers: up to 10 pages long, these papers will be assigned a presentation slot during the workshop followed by a discussion.
- Position papers: up to 4 pages long, these papers will be assigned a short presentation slot followed by a discussion
- Demo papers: up to 4 pages long, these papers will demonstrate a specific application of Semantic Web technologies to music or time-based media. They will be presented during a demonstration session at the workshop.
All submissions must be in PDF format and must follow the
LNCS style. Contributions
must be submitted through the SMAM2013 EasyChair page. Submissions are not anonymous. Accepted papers will be published online on this web site.
The papers must be submitted before July 12, 2013.
