#9 Meeting: Multimedia Signal Processing Workshop

IEEE Signal Processing Society
1997 Workshop on Multimedia Signal Processing
June 23-25, 1997
Princeton, New Jersey, USA


Thanks to the sponsorship of IEEE Signal Processing Society, the First
IEEE Workshop on Multimedia Signal Processing (MMSP) will be held at
Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, USA, on June 23-25, 1997.
MMSP strives to bring together people in the signal processing
society, the communications society, and the computer society, and to
offer a forum for interaction. This workshop will feature keynote
addresses, technical presentations, panel discussions, exhibit tours,
and special sessions by invited speakers. To encourage interaction,
we are planning sessions with the format of presentation followed by
technical discussion on the same topic. These topics include, from a
signal-processing viewpoint: integration of media, human/machine
interfaces, and multimedia networks. In particular, papers are
solicited for, but not limited to, the following general areas:

1 Multimedia Processing: Compression for Multimedia (Audio, Video,
Speech, etc.), Integration of Media, Joint Audio-Video Processing

2 Multimedia Databases: Indexing, Retrieval, and Archiving, Authoring
and Editing, Digital Library, Content Preparation and Presentation

3 Multimedia System Design and Implementation: Parallel Architecture,
ASIC Design, Software and Hardware Design, System Integration, Signal

4 Human-Machine Interface and Perception: Content
Recognition/Analysis/Synthesis, Speech Recognition and Synthesis,
Audio/Music Signal Processing and Synthesis, Multimodal Interaction
(Speech, Image, and Video), Audiovisual Perception Quality and Human
Factors, Cognitive Sciences

5 Multimedia Communications: Equalization and Synchronization,
Transport Protocols, QoS Control, Error Concealment and Loss Recovery,
Rate Control and Hierarchical Coding, Wireless Communication

6 Multimedia Applications: WWW and Hypermedia, Videoconferencing and
Collaboration Environment, Education and Distant Learning,
Telemedicine, Home-Shopping, Gaming and Virtual Reality, SDTV, HDTV,
SHDTV and Video on Demand

7 Standards and Related Issues: ITU-T Standards for Audiovisual
Communication, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MHEG, DAVIC, ATM Forum, IETF,
HTML, VRML, and others, Compressed Domain Processing


Prospective authors are invited to submit 5 copies of extended
summaries of no more than 4 pages. The top of the first page of the
summary should include a title, authors' names, affiliations, address,
