This paper provides an overview of the contents of a tutorial on the subject by one of the authors at WI-2013 Conference. The domination of multimedia contents on the web in recent times has motivated research in their semantic analysis. This tutorial aims to provide a critical overview of the technology, and focuses on application of ontologies for multimedia applications. It establishes the need for a fundamentally different approach for a representation and reasoning scheme with ontologies

It introduces a new ontology representation scheme that enables reasoning with uncertain media properties of concepts in a domain context and a language "Multimedia Web Ontology Language" (MOWL) to support the representation scheme. We discuss the approaches to semantic modeling and ontology learning with specific reference to the probabilistic framework of MOWL. We present a couple of illustrative application examples. Further, we discuss the issues of distributed multimedia information systems and how the new ontology representation scheme can create semantic interoperability across heterogeneous multimedia data sources.
