PIVP Call for Papers

The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts working on applying models, principles, and knowledge of human audio-visual perception and cognition to optimize video processing algorithms and applications.

Perceptual and cognitive factors affect how users acquire and process visual information, and an understanding of these factors and experiences offers opportunities to achieve the next big leap in video processing. In particular, many findings from areas such as Vision Science, Behavioral Sciences, and Neuroscience have strong implications for developing efficient, perceptually optimized video processing frameworks, algorithms, and applications.

PIVP 2014 welcomes submissions of full papers, as well as short papers reporting work that applies audio-visual perception in video processing. Full papers must be no longer than 6 pages (inclusive of all figures, references, and appendices). Short papers, reporting work-in-progress, are 2 pages, and will be presented as Posters in an interactive setting. Reviews will be double-blind and as such shall not contain any information identifying the author(s) or their organization(s). Papers will be judged on their relevance, technical content and correctness, and the clarity of presentation of the research.

Specific topics of interest in this workshop include:
• Perceptual video coding
• Quality of Experience
• video analysis
• perceptual models for video processing
• influence of content on perception
• influence of emotion on video perception
• emotion detection in videos
• neural correlates of video
• influence of audio on video processing
• datasets for perceptual video research

Submission Process
In submitting a manuscript to this workshop, authors acknowledge that no paper substantially similar in content has been submitted to another conference or workshop.
All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted according to the ACM Proceedings style (see formatting instructions and style files at http://acmmm.org/2014/submission_instructions.html). They must contain no information identifying the author(s) or their organization(s). Authors should submit paper as a PDF.

Accepted full and short papers will appear in the ACM Multimedia 2014 Workshop Proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library. Outstanding workshop papers will be invited to submit an extended paper to the Special issue of Multimedia Tools and Applications.
