CFP: IET VIE'08 workshop - Scalable Coded Media beyond Compression

 IET VIE'08 workshop on
           Scalable coded media beyond compression


                 29th July 2008, Xi'an, China

            Submission deadline: 31st March 2008 

                  CALL FOR PAPERS AND DEMOS

Last few years have seen the emergence of different 
solutions for achieving high-quality compression of 
images/video resulting in scalable bit streams. Scalable 
coding has now become an integral part of International 
standardisation efforts and has lead to successful 
standardisation of JPEG2000 for image coding and the 
scalable extension of the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video coding.
With the availability of these scalable coding technologies,
it is vital to investigate the effect and influence of 
scalable coded visual content on the existing compression 
domain visual content analysis, robust streaming, search and
retrieval from distributed databases and digital rights 
management applications. Future commercialisation of 
scalable coding technology mainly depends on the success of 
its integration with the whole multimedia usage experience.

This workshop aims to present the application challenges of 
recently established scalable visual content coding, new 
techniques of usage of scalable coded visual content and to 
address future applications based on scalable coded content.
This event will create an important networking forum in 
which academic and industrial participants can discuss the 
future of scalable coded visual content technologies and 


- Content adaptation and summarisation using
  scalable bit-streams
- Robust streaming, error resilience and error concealment
- Compressed domain analysis
- Content based retrieval of scalable content
- Digital rights management
- Complexity optimisation and new tools for achieving 


- Prof Stefano Tubaro, Politecnico di Milano, Italy:
  "Robust Streaming, Error Resilience and Error Concealment"


Accepted papers will be published in the VIE 2008 Conference
Proceedings. Extended versions of papers will be invited for
review and consideration for publication in Special Issues 
of the IET Image Processing, IET Computer Vision and the 
EURASIP journal on Image and Video Processing.

"Author's Kit" is available from the conference website Prospective authors are invited to 
submit papers using the on-line paper submission system at 
the conference website. To indicate submission to the 
workshop, on the submission site, after login, select the 
workshop instead of the conference main track.


Interested parties are invited to present posters and demos 
related to the workshop during the event. Contact workshop 
co-chairs for details.
