Ansgar Scherp. Linking the Semantics Ecosystem with Semantics Derivation Rules for Multimedia Content. In Contextual and Social Media Understanding and Usage. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 8251, pp. 1-3, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2009)


Multimedia content exhibits multiple semantics that is influenced by different factors like time, contextual use, and personal background. With the semantics ecosystem, we find an elegant and high-level description of the different factors that influence the semantics of multimedia content. On the other hand, semantics derivation rules are a concrete means to extract and to derive semantics of multimedia content while authoring it. These rules are directly applicable in concrete applications and domains. Thus, there is a gap between the high-level ecosystem and the concrete semantics derivation rules. In this position paper, we propose the use of an ontology-based description of events to combine the high-level description of the semantics ecosystem with the concrete method of semantics derivation for page-based multimedia presentations.
