Multimedia Signal Processing (MMSP 2010) - Call for Papers

IEEE International Workshop on Multimedia Signal Processing (MMSP2010) to be held in Saint-Malo, France, from October 4-6, 2010.

All the information about the conference is available at http://www.mmsp2010.org

You are kindly invited to submit original, previously unpublished works within the scope of MMSP2010, by the following deadlines:
Special Session proposals: March 10, 2010
Paper submission: April 15, 2010
Notification of acceptance: June 15, 2010
Camera-ready paper submission: July 15, 2010

MMSP-10 is the twelfth international workshop on multimedia signal processing. The workshop is organized by the Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. Organized in Saint-Malo, MMSP-10 provides excellent conditions for brainstorming on, and sharing the latest advances in multimedia signal processing and technology in one of the most charming and picturesque cities in the world.

SCOPE: The focus of MMSP-10 is Entertainment, Gaming and Virtual Reality for the Future. Everyday services at home and away, gaming and entertainment are more and more interconnected with multimedia systems and applications and have a bigger than ever part in our lives. Virtual and augmented reality, haptics and sensor networks are transforming this field and will deeply modify our perception and interaction with these future services and appliances. What are the new challenges for multimedia signal processing in this context, what are the emerging applications, and what theoretical tools will produce the next breakthroughs?

Papers are solicited on the following topics (but not limited to):
1) Entertainment and gaming signal processing
- Online multiplayer gaming
- Haptic technology and interfaces
- Social networking
- Multimodal collaboration
- Object detection, identification, and tracking for gaming
- Gesture, face, and human pose recognition
2) Virtual reality signal processing
- Augmented, Mixed, and Virtual Reality and 3D imaging
- 2D and 3D graphics/geometry coding and animation
- Distributed virtual reality and immersive telecommunication
- 3D audio and 3D video processing and coding
3) Systems and applications
- Teleconferencing, human-human collaboration, immersive environments
- Virtual classrooms and e-learning
- Telemedicine, multimodal storage and retrieval
4) Multimedia for communication and collaboration
- Ad hoc broadband sensor array processing
- Microphone and camera array processing
- Automatic sensor calibration and synchronization
- Source separation, source localization, de-noising, enhancement,
5) Scene analysis for immersive telecommunication and human
- Audiovisual scene analysis
- Presence detection and activity classification
- Multimodal sensor fusion
6) Coding
- Distributed/centralized source coding for sensor arrays
- Scalable source coding for multiparty conferencing
- Error/loss resilient coding, channel coding, error protection
7) Networking
- Voice & video over IP and wireless, quality monitoring, management,
- Priority-based QoS control and scheduling, ad-hoc and real time
communications, traffic engineering, soft IP multicast support
- Channel coding, packetization, synchronization, buffering
- Position aware computing, wireless, P2P networks for multimedia

MMSP 2010 will include a number of special sessions. Proposals for special sessions must include a title, contact information for the session chair(s), and a list of authors who have been or will be contacted to present papers if the session is accepted. Proposals for special sessions should be submitted to the Special Sessions Co-Chairs Min Wu (minwu@eng.umd.edu) and Enrico Magli (enrico.magli@polito.it) by March 10th, 2010.

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers of not more than six (6) pages including results, figures and references. Papers will be accepted only by electronic submission through the conference web site http://www.mmsp2010.org
