We consider here the issue of querying video multimedia information systems. Central to this problem is the ability to specify and represent various natural temporal concepts used in the formulation of queries posed by the users of these systems. It is suggested that fuzzy set technology provides a very useful formalism for representing these temporal concepts. We then investigate various aspects of the use of fuzzy set methods for the retrieval of information in annotated video multimedia systems.
