Multimedia indexing systems aim at providing user-friendly, fast and accurate access to large multimedia repositories. Various tools and techniques from different fields such as data indexing, machine learning, pattern recognition, and human computer interaction have contributed to the success of multimedia systems. In spite of significant progress in the field, content-based multimedia indexing systems still show limits in accuracy, generality and scalability. The goal of this special issue is to bring forward recent advancements in content-based multimedia indexing. In addition to multimedia and social media search and retrieval, we wish to highlight related and equally important issues that build on content-based indexing, such as multimedia content management, user interaction and visualization, media analytics, etc. The special issue will also feature contributions on application domains, e.g., multimedia indexing for health or for e-learning.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
