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

- Automatic sensor calibration and synchronization
- Source separation, source localization, de-noising, enhancement, spatialization

5) Scene analysis for immersive telecommunication and human collaboration
- 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
