MICARE Special Session:
A heartbeat. That is what multimedia represents for any mobile system.
Text, audio, images and videos are of a paramount importance for all kinds of users, and are hugely transmitted over mobile networks.
Also, transition from 3rd generation (3G) to 4th generation (4G) and eminently to 5th generation (5G) raises hopes for better multimedia
content transmission in terms of quality, bandwidth, delay and error rate. However, fulfilling these requirements not depends only on the mobile
communication infrastructure, but also on the media content itself. Encoding, compression, modeling and, more generally, representation of the multimedia content is
a milestone and key component of a successful user experience. The aim of MICARE (MultImedia Content Analysis, and REpresentation) special session is to highlight
the problems and challenges of multimedia content analysis, and to bring together researchers in the field of signal (image, audio, video, ...)
processing along with researchers in the fields of mobile communication and wireless networks to discuss, exchange ideas and broaden their respective scopes.
The topics of interest of the special session include, but are not limited to:
- Object recognition
- Shape, Illumination, Shading and Texture
- Data-Driven Geometry, Lighting, and Materials
- 3D reconstruction
- 3D face analysis and facial rigging
- 3D navigation and interfaces
- 3D imaging, visualization, animation, virtual reality and 3DTV
- Multimedia indexing, search, retrieval and browsing on the Web
- Multimedia content analysis and understanding
- Advanced descriptors and similarity metrics for Multimedia
- Multimedia communication, networking, and mobility
- Multimedia vision, security, content protection and forensics
- Multimedia quality assessment
- Multimedia summarizing and visualization
- Feature extraction and selection
- Classification and clustering
- Image/video enhancement and segmentation
- Color, texture and motion analysis
- Image/video compression, coding and watermarking
- Tracking and real-time imaging
- Pattern recognition
- Machine learning
- Medical imaging
- Big data for multimedia analytics
