We are currently witnessing the remarkable impact of Hyper/Multimedia and Social Media on our society. World Wide Web and Internet are revolutionizing the way we process, use, exchange and disseminate information. Through this technology revolution, many real-life applications in the fields of communication, commerce, education, government, and entertainment are redefined. 
Parallel to the evolution of Internet and Web, several Hyper/Multimedia and Social Media schemes and technologies bring intelligent, personalized and adaptive services to the end users. More and more techniques are applied in media systems in order to be user/social-centric, adapting to different content and context features of a social community user.
Thus, towards a "web of communities", researchers need to explore and study the plethora of challenges that emergent adaptation technologies bring to the new era. 
This edited volume aims to increase the awareness of researchers in this area, providing an in-depth investigation on research and deployment issues, regarding already introduced schemes and applications in Semantic Hyper/Multimedia and Social Media Adaptation.
The authors who are interested in contributing to this volume, are encouraged to provide a survey-based article, so as a potential reader can use for catching up the recent trends and applications on the following topics, presenting also his/her research activities and contributions. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited:
* Semantic content creation and modelling
* Multimedia - Social Media content annotation tools and applications
* Semantic-driven multimedia indexing and retrieval
* Intelligent search, content retrieval and filtering
* Multimodal fusion applications
* Multimedia and open standards
* Social-aware content customization and adaptive applications
* Context-aware multimedia and social media applications
* Knowledge acquisition and management 
* Semantic context modelling and extraction
* Multimedia ontologies, reasoning and Semantic Web adaptation technologies 
* Social multimedia tagging and multimedia content communities
* Multimedia content modelling and recommender systems
* User-Community Profiling, Privacy, Security

Important Dates:
Article Proposal (abstract): February 28, 2011
First Submission of Articles: May 6, 2011
Notification of Acceptance: July 22, 2011
Camera-ready files: TBA
Tentative Publication: last quarter of 2011

All researchers should send a 1-2 page chapter proposal to the Guest Editors explaining the mission and concerns of proposed article by February 28, 2011.

In order to achieve our schedule and publish this edited volume on time, we kindly ask all candidate authors to not exceed the deadline mentioned above. 
In addition, please submit your contribution in the requested format, for saving time between the possible acceptance notification and the final preparation/revision according to the appropriate camera-ready format and the comments/suggestions after possible acceptance.
