Abstract

Enabling effective multimedia information processing, analysis, and access applications in online social multimedia settings requires data representation models that capture a broad range of the characteristics of such environments and ensure interoperability. We propose a flexible model for describing Socially Interconnected MultiMedia-enriched Objects (SIMMO) that integrates in a unified manner the representation of multimedia and social features in online environments. Its specification is based on a set of identified requirements and its expressive power is illustrated using several diverse examples. Finally, a comparison of SIMMO with existing approaches demonstrates its unique features.
