Special Session : Perceptually Driven Visual Information Analysis

Nowadays, the field of visual information analysis becomes active more than ever because of the large availability of visual content in both personal and professional contexts. The targeted applications are numerous as for instance the medical imaging, security, manufacturing, etc. Algorithms are often expected to be computationally plausible, feasible and reliable. However, in the recent years, perception became an important aspect when developing imaging solutions. It has been proved that the incorporation of perceptual models helps in achieving better results. To this end, several perceptually inspired models have been proposed for visual saliency prediction, visual masking, contrast sensitivity, binocular fusion, to cite a few of them.

This special session organized under the flagship of IPTA 2015, aims at providing the most recent developments in the field of visual information analysis using perceptually driven or inspired algorithms. The topics of this special session are oriented towards the use of perceptual models/optimization in the framework of (not limited to):

  • Image and video compression

  • 3D scene reconstruction and understanding

  • Quality assessment and enhancement

  • Image and video retrieval

  • Segmentation and pattern recognition

  • Multimedia content transmission

  • Computational color imaging

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit their unpublished work by providing a paper including results, figures and references following the rules of IPTA’2015.

Important dates:

         Submission deadline    May 15th, 2015

         Notification of acceptance   June 15th, 2015

         Final Paper Submission June 30th, 2015
