In cooperation with our partner in hackAIR CERTH, we co-organised a workshop that took place during the 3rd International Conference on Internet Science INSCI16 – Florence, 12-14 /9/2016.

ISEM 2016 aims at presenting the most recent works in the area of environmental monitoring based on web resources and social media with an emphasis on user generated content. The advancements in digital technologies and the high internet penetration have facilitated the sharing of environmental information, such as meteorological measurements and nature observation. Since the analysis of environmental information is critical both for human activities (e.g. agriculture) and for the sustainability of the planet (e.g. global warming), it is of great importance to develop techniques for the retrieval and aggregation of the environmental information that is available over the internet. Of particular interest is the exploitation of user generated content, which although in many cases can be of low quality, it can provide important information regarding areas that are not monitored by existing stations. In this context, ISEM 2016 focuses on analysis, retrieval and aggregation of environmental data from the internet and social media (including user generated content), as well as on personalised services and decision support environmental applications.
Research topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:
- Environmental web data Indexing and Retrieval
- Analysis of multimedia environmental user generated content
- Computer Vision for Environmental Video and Image Processing
- Multimedia Analysis for Weather Phenomena and Natural Disasters Understanding
- Participatory and Social Environmental Media Analysis
- Discovery of Environmental Multimedia Information in the web
- Content Extraction from Environmental Data in the web
- Aggregation of environmental data
- Personalised Services based on Environmental Information
- Fusion of Multimedia Environmental Information.
- Interfaces, Presentation and Visualization tools for Environmental Data
- Semantic Web Approaches for Environmental Data
- Decision support services and reasoning of Multimedia Environmental Data
