Growing amounts of multimedia data of various modalities (video, audio, 3D objects, etc.) make management, distribution of and access to multimedia material ever harder, both for lay and professional users. Novel approaches, bridging the large disparity between descriptors computed automatically from multimedia content  and subjectivity and context in user interpretation and interaction, are required. It still needs to be further explored how technologies from different research areas can be used to increase the value of multimedia content, e.g. to assist multimedia representation, analysis and annotation with semantics and knowledge based methods.
