3rd International Conference on Immersive Telecommunications

Deadline extension for Paper Submission: March 15, 2011
27-29 June 2011, Istanbul, Turkey


Immersive telecommunications is an emerging multi-disciplinary field with contributions from telecommunications and networking, signal processing, computer vision, virtual reality, spatial audio processing, user interfaces, and human factors. IMMERSCOM aims to bring researchers and scientists from academia and industry together to advance the state of the art in immersive telecommunications sciences, technologies and systems.


The conference solicits original technical papers that are not previously published or currently under review for publication elsewhere. General themes of the conference include but are not limited to:
  • Scene Capture for Immersive Communication: Multi-camera and depth sensor based 3D video capture systems, multimodal scene capture, 3D reconstruction and other representations from capture data, view synthesis and interpolation, pervasive sensing
  • Communications and Networking for Immersive Applications: Communication for rich 3D visualization, tele-presence, and mixed/augmented reality; QoS for immersive applications; robustness to loss over networks, low latency communication, real-time protocols, synchronization
  • Computer Vision for Immersive Communication: 3D reconstruction and modeling, activity detection, face and pose detection and recognition, eye contact, gesture recognition, body tracking, mobility issues, tele-reality, data fusion
  • User Interfaces and Human Factors for Immersive Experiences: Stereoscopic, auto-stereoscopic and multi-view displays and interfaces; multi-projector and projector-camera systems;mixed/augmented reality interfaces, interactive environment interfaces, affective user interfaces, haptics; handheld and wearable device interfaces, multimodal interfaces, tele-presence interfaces; perceptual interfaces, human factors and usability
  • AudioProcessing for Immersive Communication: Multi-channel echo cancellation, de-reverberation, spatial audio capture and synthesis, microphone and speaker arrays, source localization and diarization, multimodal processing
  • Multimedia Coding for Immersive Communication: Coding of audio, video, multi-view video, and depth with various 3D representations; coding for distributed multimedia sensors (camera & microphone) networks, compressed sensing, real-time coding
  • Applications, Systems, and Architectures: Tele-presence; gaming; medical and bio-medical applications; educational systems; virtual museums, meetings and classrooms; social networking

Proposals for tutorials/posters/panels/demos/exhibitions related to Immersive Telecommunications technologies are solicited. Those who are interested are welcome to submit proposals to the respective Chairs. Please visit the Submissions page for details.


Accepted papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering (LNICST) series.The proceedings will be available in both soft and hard copies by Springer.
