#12 Meeting: IEEE Workshop on multimedia compression



Santa Barbara, CA - June 22, 1998

Sponsored by the PAMI Technical Committee of the IEEE Computer Society

The diffusion of multimedia has radically changed the traditional
notion of "video". Interactivity, panoramic rendering, hybrid 2D-3D,
characterize the presentation of visual contents on the WWW and
multimedia; videoconferencing is already the preferred medium for
distant communication; and large image and video databases are
becoming accessible and searchable.

The massive diffusion of interactive multimedia on the internet and on
CD-ROM calls for new, powerful compression architectures, that go well
beyond traditional waveform and block-based motion coding. Modern
compression standards such as MPEG-4 already support content-based
compression, making use of image understanding techniques,
traditionally developed in other contexts. Future techniques in
multimedia coding will consider issues such as the 3-D dynamic
modelling of objects, the semantic representation of the scene, the
interpolation of views for panoramic representations and mosaicing. It
is apparent that multimedia compression is becoming a challenging
application for computer vision.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussion of
new results on computer vision techniques for advanced scene analysis
and compression, as well as to encourage interaction with the image
compression community. The workshop will be held in conjunction with
CVPR'98. Workshop Proceedings will be available on site. Papers are
solicited for, but not limited to, the following areas:

- Layered representation of images
- Clustering of video shots
- Texture representation and segmentation for image coding
- 3-D segmentation and representation
- Compact combined description of shape and motion
- Registration of panoramic imagery
- Automatic facial conformation for model-based videophone
- Stereo and multiview image coding
- Parametric surface and volume description
- Speech-lip synchronization
- Contour-based coding
- Content-based scalability

Four copies of complete manuscript should be
received by Jan. 30, 1998 at the following address:

Dr. Carlo Tomasi - CVTMC'98
Department of Computer Science
Stanford University
Gates Building 1A, Room 156
Stanford, CA 94305

Papers should include:
(a) A title page containing the names and addresses of the
authors (including e-mail), an abstract of up to 200 words,
and one or more categories as listed above or other
(b) A second title page - title and abstract only (to allow
for double blind reviewing),
(c) Paper - limited to 30 double-space pages (12 points,
1 inch margins), including figures, references, etc.
