IET Visual Information Engineering 2008 Conference

The 5th IET Visual Information Engineering 2008 Conference (VIE'08) addresses the fundamental elements of image, video and graphics research and development. It brings together researchers, developers, creators, educators, and practitioners in image processing, machine vision, computer graphics, virtual and augmented environments, and visual communications to share their latest achievements and explore future directions and synergies in these exciting areas.

Workshop Outline

Last few years have seen the emergence of different solutions for achieving high-quality compression of images/video resulting in scalable bit streams. Scalable coding has now become an integral part of International standardisation efforts and has lead to successful standardisation of JPEG2000 for image coding and the scalable extension of the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video coding. With the availability of these scalable coding technologies, it is vital to investigate the effect and influence of scalable coded visual content on the existing compression domain visual content analysis, robust streaming, search and retrieval from distributed databases and digital rights management applications. Future commercialisation of scalable coding technology mainly depends on the success of its integration with the whole multimedia usage experience.

This workshop aims to present the application challenges of recently established scalable visual content coding, new techniques of usage of scalable coded visual content and to address future applications based on scalable coded content. This event will create an important networking forum in which academic and industrial participants can discuss the future of scalable coded visual content technologies and applications.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

  • Content adaptation and summarisation using scalable bit-streams
  • Robust streaming, error resilience and error concealment
  • Compressed domain analysis
  • Content based retrieval
  • Digital rights management
  • Complexity optimisation and new tools for achieving scalability
