Call for papers - Media Retargeting Workshop 2010


Media retargeting is the process of adapting media content such as images or video to the characteristics of different output devices.

Media retargeting has received considerable attention in computer vision and graphics research in the recent years due to the growing variability in capture devices and displays (small displays in mobile devices, large high resolution displays in home cinema systems) and the availability of huge amounts of image and video data. There is a strong commercial interest to automatically convert existing movies to the 16:9 format of today’s wide-screen TVs from legacy 4:3 format and from cinema 2.39:1 format. However, the overall spectrum of problems related to media retargeting is much broader: it also comprises issues such as color adaptation between different dynamic ranges, and the automatic conversion of 2D to 3D footage for upcoming stereoscopic consumer display devices.

Due to this large spectrum of applications, media retargeting covers a large variety of challenging vision research problems, ranging from perceptual content analysis over efficient optimization algorithms for retargeting to systematic evaluation of already existing techniques.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from all areas of computer vision, machine learning, and computer graphics, and to stimulate the discussion about shared concepts and recent progress, such as content-aware approaches and saliency cues from images and video. The workshop also aims at offering a forum to discuss the persisting challenging problems such as integration with complementary information in form of meta data, audible information, temporal coherence, high- and low-level perceptual issues, as well as quantitative and qualitative evaluation.

Call for Papers

We invite high quality, original submissions for presentation during the workshop. Contributions from the following areas are especially welcome:

Papers must be in PDF format following the ECCV guidelines. All submissions are subject to a double-blind review process by the program committee. Further details about the submission process can be found on the workshop homepage.

Workshop Format:

The workshop will be a half-day event (morning) on September 10, 2010.

A panel discussing future directions and potential workshops expanding upon the topics of this workshop will be held in conclusion.
