CVMP 2008, organised by the IET Multimedia Technical and Professional
Network, is an international forum for the discussion of the latest
research advances, tools and techniques as well as state-of-the-art
industry practices in content production and post-production of visual
media.

Technical contributions from experts in academia and industry will be
looking at three key fields for movies, television, interactive
programmes, online content and gaming industry:

    *      image analysis
    *      computer vision
    *      computer graphics

Visual media production commonly makes use of developments that are at
the convergence of image/video analysis and computer graphics. Image
analysis has widespread application in visual media production including
editing, annotation and special effects. New techniques in visual scene
analysis are now commonplace in media production and combine synthetic
and real elements.

Emerging new delivery platforms like e-cinema, high-resolution displays
for the home and interactive media are asking for new approaches. The
aim of the conference is to show how these techniques are used in
current media production and to discuss their future influence on common
practice.

The Conference on Visual Media Production is honoured to announce the

submitted for the CVMP 2008 event. Papers are judged by peer review and
