MIR on the Web

Most of the well known publishers allow pre-prints of the accepted versions of the author's papers to be placed on their homepage. MIR on the Web is meant to be an index of free/open weblinks to scientific papers in the field of multimedia information retrieval - MIR (and Multimedia). The intention is to facilitate the dissemination and discussion of scientific knowledge. Anyone can add weblinks to papers. MIR on the Web is part of the MIRSociety.org (see menu above).
