EURASIP Journal on Image and Video Processing

Special Issue on Quality of Multimedia Experience

*********    Call for Papers  *********
Typically, multimedia processing algorithms are evaluated using objective metrics or through subjective testing in a controlled environment. However, perceived user experience is psychological in nature and changes in different environmental conditions and with different multimedia devices. Therefore, new techniques are needed to asses and enhance multimedia experience from the user perspective.

The goal of this special issue is to address the recent advances in theory, algorithms, challenges, applications, and future trends in the field of quality of multimedia experience. We plan to address a wide variety of topics to enhance multimedia quality experience including audio-visual quality models, quality of experience in multimodal human machine interaction, subjective assessment of images/video, perceptual image/video quality assessment, full/reduced/no reference objective quality metrics, low-/high-resolution display quality, subjective quality testing, speech quality, and methods to measure quality of experience. We welcome authors to submit their original research articles or comprehensive reviews in the related areas. 

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
. User Experience Assessment and Enhancement. New metrics to define quality of user experience, interaction between auditory, visual, affective and other modalities and their impact on user experience, UI design, user experience rendering, user experience acquisition, human and multimedia device interaction, and multimedia quality evaluation tools for generic and specific applications. 

. Visual User Experience (Image/Video/Graphics). Objective quality metrics, subjective quality evaluation, psychovisual modeling, quality-centered processing, compression and transmission, artifacts reduction, relationship between errors/noise/losses to human perception, display-specific processing, 3D Video, quality evaluation in HD and beyond, quality evaluation in HDR content, and quality issues in streaming video. 

. Auditory User Experience (Speech/Audio). Psychoacoustic modeling, quality assessment of interactive speech applications, VoIP, modeling based on human auditory perception, intrusive/nonintrusive models for quality evaluation.

Among featured articles, this special issue is expected to also include invited contributions, selected from the best paper award candidates of QoMEX09 (First International Workshop on Quality of Multimedia Experience, 2009), conditional to successful review of their extended journal paper versions. 
All the submitted papers will be reviewed through usual journal reviewing process of EURASIP Journal on Image and Video Processing. Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at according to the following timetable:
