Instruction for Poster Presentation

MMSP-08 is the tenth international workshop on multimedia signal processing. The workshop is organized by the Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. A new theme of this workshop is Bio-Inspired Multimedia Signal Processing in Life Science Research. The main goal of MMSP-2008 is to further the scientific research within the broad field of multimedia signal processing and its interaction with other new emerging areas such as life science.
The workshop will focus on major trends and challenges in this area, including brainstorming a roadmap for the success of future research and application. MMSP-08 workshop consists of interesting features:

  • A Student Paper Contest with awards sponsored by Canon Information Systems Research Australia (CiSRA). To enter the contest a paper submission must have a student as the first author
  • A Best Paper with awards sponsored by Microsoft.
  • A Best Poster presentation with awards sponsored by National ICT Australia (NICTA).
  • New session for Bio-Inspired Multimedia Signal Processing


Papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the following general areas:

  1. Bio-inspired multimedia signal processing
    • Multimedia processing techniques inspired by the study of signals/images derived from medical, biomedical and other life science disciplines with applications to multimedia signal processing.
    • Fusion mechanism of multimodal signals in human information processing system and applications to multimodal multimedia data fusion/integration.
    • Comparison between bio-inspired methods and conventional methods.
    • Hybrid multimedia processing technology and systems incorporating bio-inspired and conventional methods.
  2. Joint audio/visual processing, pattern recognition, sensor fusion, medical imaging, 2-D and 3-D graphics/geometry coding and animation, pre/post-processing of digital video, joint source/channel coding, data streaming, speech/audio, image/video coding and processing
  3. Multimedia databases (content analysis, representation, indexing, recognition and retrieval)
  4. Human-machine interfaces and interaction using multiple modalities
  5. Multimedia security (data hiding, authentication, and access control)
  6. Multimedia networking (priority-based QoS control and scheduling, traffic engineering, soft IP multicast support, home networking technologies, position aware computing, wireless communications).
  7. Multimedia Systems Design, Implementation and Application (design, distributed multimedia systems, real time and non-real-time systems; implementation; multimedia hardware and software)
  8. Standards
