CfP: Special Session on "Visual Quality Measurement" of 2010 IEEE Pacific-Rim Conference on Multimedia (PCM2010)

Special Session "Visual Quality Measurement" of 2010 IEEE Pacific-Rim Conference on Multimedia (PCM2010, to be held from 21st to 24th September 2010 in the World Expo 2010 city Shanghai, China. As in previous editions of this series, the Proceedings of PCM2010 will be published in a book series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Spriner.
************** About the Conference *****************
  Since its inception in 2000, PCM has rapidly grown into a major conference on multimedia in the Asia-Pacific Rim region and built up its reputation  around the world. PCM has set up a vibrant forum for the community and brought researchers, developers, practitioners, and educators together to  disseminate their new discoveries in the field which have contributed significant to the success of the preceding PCMs conducted in Thailand (2009),  Taiwan (2008), Hong Kong (2007), China (2006), Korea (2005), Japan (2004), Singapore (2003), Taiwan (2002), China (2001), and Australia (2000). The technical quality of PCM has also improved significantly. In particular, PCM 2006 reached a record low paper exception rate at 16% in 2006.
**************    Focused Topics    *****************
  The motivation for this special session is to highlight the importance, challenges, and applications of visual media quality assessment. We invite researchers to submit original papers in all areas related to automatic visual media quality assessment including, but not limited to, the following  topics:
  - Global and impairment-specific visual quality assessment metrics
  - Full-reference, reduced-reference, and no-reference visual quality assessment of still-pictures and video
  - Visual quality assessment of 3D visual data and 3D models
  - Visual quality assessment of High-Definition image and video content
  - Statistical methods for automatic visual quality assessment
  - Perceptual / Biologically-inspired automatic visual quality assessment
  - Visual quality metrics for specific applications
**************    Important Dates   *****************
  Full paper submission due: Apr.24, 2010
**************   Paper Submission   *****************
  Authors should prepare their papers using the LNCS template and papers should not be more than 12 pages long.
