The main reasons for undesired steps in multimedia search are on the one hand, the users' difficulty in specifying their interests in the form of a well-defined query, and on the other hand, the problem of extracting relevant (semantic) features from the multimedia objects. To improve today's retrieval tools and thus the overall satisfaction of a user, it is necessary to develop new techniques able to support the user in the interactive retrieval process. Currently, especially Multimedia Interaction and Dialogue Management techniques as well as affect detection for multimedia content and others are currently promising research directions.

The Adaptive Multimedia Retrieval workshop aims to bring researchers, practitioners and companies with specific focus on existing and novel techniques into the field of multimedia retrieval. The goal of this workshop is therefore to intensify the exchange of ideas, to provide an overview of current activities in this area and to point out connections between multimedia, retrieval and artificial intelligence research communities.

The 7th International Workshop on Adaptive Multimedia Retrieval, AMR'2009, will be held on 24-25 September at the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED), Madrid, Spain.
