Advances in computer and network technologies and the
availability of large-capacity storage devices have significantly
advanced multimedia capabilities of computer platforms and
consumer devices. The need to support digital video within this
multimedia environment imposes significant demands on such
multimedia systems. Technologies such as video compression are
therefore critical in such systems.

This conference brings together practitioners and researchers
working in all aspects of digital video. The conference will
serve as a forum for exchange of novel ideas on video
compression research, codec development, hardware and software
implementations. Presenters will be encouraged to demonstrate
their digital video solutions. Also encouraged are
presentations on the underlying concepts behind these
technologies and the compromises required when implementing such
technologies within real-world resource constraints.

Papers are solicited in all areas of digital video and audio
codec methods, including, but not limited to:
* basic video coding algorithms (DCT based, fractals, etc.)
* scalable video coding schemes (wavelets, sub-band, pyramids)
* motion-estimation techniques
* bitrate control issues and implementations
* pre and post processing for video compression
* MPEG, H.261 standards related video coding methods
(algorithms, implementations, software-only solutions)
* software-only video coder implementations
* special hardware implementations (VLSI, DSP, parallel processor)
* very low bit rate video coding techniques including H.26P
* morphological and model based coding methods
* video coding for wireless and mobile applications
* combined source-channel coding
* error concealment methods
* video scene content analysis in compressed and uncompressed
* perceptual quality quantification
* audio compression methods

Papers describing case studies of digital video codec algorithms,
technologies and system integration issues are also welcome.
Each paper will be reviewed by members of the program committee.

July 3, 1995 along with your abstract.
