Smart Multimedia Content Recommendation in Web of Things

Call for Papers

With the ever-increasing volume and variety of multimedia content (e.g., images, audios, text, and user-generated data with domain-specific knowledge), recommendation has become a promising way to alleviate the heavy burden on the multimedia selection decisions of users. In the age of Web of Things (WoT), the major devices that users enjoy multimedia content through often vary in both hardware infrastructure (e.g., mobile phone, PDA, and smartwatch) and software context (e.g., network condition and throughput).
