Multimedia tools and applications are flourishing faster than ever, as mobile and social media platforms became ubiquitous in the current decade. The rise of tablets and smart phones has enabled users across all age to easily create, share, and consume multimedia contents. At the same time, people are increasingly dependent on social and cloud services for obtaining information while they are on the move. While it seems like a straightforward correlation of supply and demand to sustain the rapidly growing multimedia data, there are many challenges and limitations that prohibit the full realization of its potentials. Mobility and social requirements for emerging applications, such as health, transport, intelligent environment, and adaptive community, drive the need to innovate the solutions for semantic extraction, indexing, summarization, and delivery of context-aware services.
