IMMERSCOM 2011 : 3rd International ICST Conference on Immersive Telecommunications
Call For Papers
SCOPE AND GOAL OF THE CONFERENCE
Immersive telecommunications is an emerging multi-disciplinary field with contributions from telecommunications and networking, signal processing, computer vision, virtual reality, spatial audio processing, user interfaces, and human factors. IMMERSCOM aims to bring researchers and scientists from academia and industry together to advance the state of the art in immersive telecommunications sciences, technologies and systems.
The conference solicits original technical papers that are not previously published or currently under review for publication elsewhere. General themes of the conference include but are not limited to:
Scene Capture for Immersive Communication
Multi-camera and depth sensor based 3D video capture systems, multimodal scene capture, 3D reconstruction and other representations from capture data, view synthesis and interpolation, pervasive sensing
Communications and Networking for Immersive Applications
Communication for rich 3D visualization, tele-presence, and mixed/augmented reality; QoS for immersive applications; robustness to loss over networks, low latency communication, real-time protocols, synchronization
Computer Vision for Immersive Communication
3D reconstruction and modeling, activity detection, face and pose detection and recognition, eye contact, gesture recognition, body tracking, mobility issues, tele-reality, data fusion
User Interfaces and Human Factors for Immersive Experiences
Stereoscopic, auto-stereoscopic and multi-view displays and interfaces; multi-projector and projector-camera systems;mixed/augmented reality interfaces, interactive environment interfaces, affective user interfaces, haptics; handheld and wearable device interfaces, multimodal interfaces, tele-presence interfaces; perceptual interfaces, human factors and usability
AudioProcessing for Immersive Communication
Multi-channel echo cancellation, de-reverberation, spatial audio capture and synthesis, microphone and speaker arrays, source localization and diarization, multimodal processing
Multimedia Coding for Immersive Communication
Coding of audio, video, multi-view video, and depth with various 3D representations; coding for distributed multimedia sensors (camera & microphone) networks, compressed sensing, real-time coding
Applications, Systems, and Architectures
Tele-presence; gaming; medical and bio-medical applications; educational systems; virtual museums, meetings and classrooms; social networking
Proposals for tutorials/posters/panels/demos/exhibitions related to Immersive Telecommunications technologies are solicited. Those who are interested are welcome to submit proposals to the respective Chairs. Please visit the Submissions page for details.
Accepted papers will be published in the Immerscom Conference Proceedings and by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST). The proceedings will be available both in book form and via the SpringerLink digital library, and will be submitted for inclusion in leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ISI Proceedings, EI, CrossRef and Zentralblatt Math, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
