Meeting: Still-Image Compression 1996 (CFP)

Still-Image Compression 1996

Conference Chairs: Robert L. Stevenson, Univ. of Notre Dame; Alexander I.
Drukarev, Hewlett-Packard Co.; Thomas R. Gardos, Intel Corp.

Recent advances in digital image capture and hard copy, coupled with
breakthroughs in the price/performance of digital hardware and firmware, have
resulted in an ever increasing need for storage and transmission of digital
images. Diverse applications include consumer imaging, color facsimile, image
archiving, remote sensing, medical imaging, education, and entertainment.
Image compression refers to the techniques that aim at reducing the
statistical redundancy and/or the irrelevancy of the digital image data to
save transmission time (channel bandwidth), storage space, or to improve data
transfer and access rate.
This conference serves as a forum where advances in still-image
compression techniques and associated software and hardware implementations,
in addition to international standards, can be presented and discussed.

In particular, papers are solicited in the following areas:
* lossless compression of still continuous-tone and bi-level images
* lossy compression of still continuous-tone and bi-level images
* image compression international standards (JPEG, JBIG, etc.)
* image pre- and post-processing techniques for improving compression
* model-based approaches for still-image compression (human visual system
models and nontraditional approaches for very low data rates)
* VLSI, hardware, and software implementation of image compression
* system issues involving image compression (rate control, manipulation of
compressed bit streams, integration with other media, etc.)

This conference is just one of nearly 30 conferences to be held at the EI'96
symposium. And EI'96 is just part of the larger Photonics West Symposium being
held 27 January - 2 February 1996, San Jose Convention Ctr., San Jose,
California USA.

The calls for papers for all conferences in the Photonics West symposium will
be available early June on
by anonymous FTP
or by e-mail file retrieval

message body:

to which the abstract is submitted

2. AUTHOR LISTING (List principal author first)
for each author: full name [first(given) last(family] and affiliation,
mailing address, phone/fax numbers, email

Please contact SPIE if you have any questions or require further information.

(*) Please note:
SPIE's area code changed from 206 to 360 in February 1995. If you experience
any difficulty using the 360 area code, please use 206 and notify SPIE, your
local phone company, and the people in charge of the phone system from where
you placed your call. You may also call 1-800-441-5516 to report the
difficulty. Thank you for your patience while US West and other regional phone
companies fix this problem. You may also call SPIE at 800/483-9034, a
temporary number for use during this transition to the new area code.
