The CLIC Challenge

DCC 2024 will be the official venue of the Challenge on Learned Image Compression (CLIC); submissions are open! In the context of a competition, CLIC is a venue to compare traditional approaches to image and video compression to ones employing machine learning and computer vision. The winners of the CLIC competition will be announced at DCC. See https://compression.cc for how to participate, and to view the current leaderboard.

An international forum for current work on data compression and related applications. Both theoretical and experimental work are of interest. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: Lossless and lossy compression for storage and transmission of specific types of data (including text, gray scale and color photographs, multi-spectral and hyper-spectral images, palette images, video, movies, audio, music, maps, instrument and sensor data, space data, earth observation data, scientific data, weather data, medical data, graphics data, geometry data, 3D representations, animation, bi-level images / bit-maps, web content, web graphs, etc.), source coding, source coding in multiple access networks, joint source-channel coding, rate distortion coding, rate allocation, multiple description coding, quantization theory, vector quantization (VQ), multiple description VQ, transform based methods (including DCT and wavelet transforms), parallel compression algorithms and hardware, error resilient compression techniques, adaptive compression algorithms, browsing and searching compressed data, compressed data structures, applications to immersive media, inpainting-based compression, perceptual coding, visual search, object recognition, applications of neural networks and deep learning (e.g. CNN's) to compression, string searching and manipulation used in compression applications, fractal based compression methods, information retrieval employing compression techniques, steganography / hidden information with respect to compressed data, minimal length encoding and applications to learning, system issues relating to data compression (including error control, data security, indexing, and browsing), compression applications and issues for computational biology and bioinformatics, compression applications and issues for the internet, compression applications and issues for mobile computing, applications of compression to file distribution and software updates, applications of compression to file storage and backup systems, applications of compression to data mining, applications of compression to image retrieval, applications of compression and information theory to human-computer interaction (HCI), development of and extensions to compression standards (including the HEVC, JPEG, MPEG, H.xxx, and G.xxx families and including compression of specific image types such as plenoptic images, point cloud images, and light field images), compressed sensing / compressive sampling, and the use of techniques from information theory and data compression in networking, communications, and storage of large data sets.

Submission Format

All submitted manuscripts must be PDF files that satisfy:

Each page should have a top margin of 1 inch and a left margin of 1.25 inches, and the text area on each page should be 9 inches high by 6 inches wide.
Do NOT use a two-column format; all submissions must have a single column format.
Use 12 point type.
The first page must begin with the title centered at the top, with the authors and their affiliations below the title. (DCC reviewing is single-blind, where the identities of the reviewers are anonymous, but the author names and affiliations are on the manuscript.) Following the title and authors, should be a short abstract, and following the abstract should be the start of the first section.
Manuscripts may NOT be more than 10 pages TOTAL, including all references, figures, tables, notes, and appendices.

Note: In the case of an image or video that requires viewing to access visual quality, for optional use by a referee, a reduced size but reasonably viewable image or representative video frame may appear in the manuscript along with a link to the image or the video. In the case of audio, for optional use by a referee, a description of the audio material may be accompanied by a link to the audio.

Here is a link to template of a formatted page:

DCC Template (pdf)

Submissions must be in PDF format, but here are some files that may be useful for preparation:

MS Word sample source file (.doc)

LaTeX sample source files (zip folder)

Manuscripts may be submitted for consideration as full paper or poster, or for consideration as poster only. Manuscripts submitted for consideration as poster only must still submit a thorough description of the work for review (NOT a one page summary).

Manuscripts accepted as papers will be presented at a technical session of the conference and have a final draft of at most 10 pages in the DCC proceedings. Manuscripts accepted as posters will be presented at the DCC poster session and have a one page summary in the DCC proceedings.

For inclusion in the DCC proceedings, an accepted manuscript requires the same formatting as for submission, the only difference being that manuscripts accepted as papers are limited to 10 pages and manuscripts accepted as posters are limited to one page.

Submission Instructions

Submissions must be submitted electronically; by November 8, 11:59pm U.S. Pacific Time (this date has been extended by 1 week from the original date of November 1). DCC observes the IEEE policy on confidentiality of submitted manuscripts.

Author Notification

Authors will be notified via email in late December of acceptance as a paper, acceptance as a poster, or rejection. Accepted manuscripts must be submitted electronically; the due date will be in early January. The letter of acceptance will include the exact due date, directions on where and how to make the electronic submission of the final manuscript, and directions for submitting a proceedings copyright form. (Do not include a copyright form with your submission; instead, wait until your submission has been accepted and you receive directions.)
