The awarded paper proposed a novel multi-modal multi-view topic-opinion mining (MMTOM) model for social event analysis in multiple collection sources. The proposed MMTOM can effectively take multi-modal and multi-view properties jointly into account in a unified and principled way for social event modeling. Generally speaking, MMTOM model can be widely applied to many fields in multimedia, such as opinion mining and sentiment analysis, multi-view association visualization, and topic-opinion mining for movie review etc.
