Image, Video, and Multimedia Processing

SERIES EDITORS: Alan C. Bovik, University of Texas, Austin
These lectures are intended to provide a unique and groundbreaking forum for the world's experts in the field to express their knowledge in unique and effective ways. In terms of the subject matter for the series, there are few limitations that we will impose other than the Lectures be related to aspects of the imaging sciences that are relevant to furthering our understanding of the processes by which images, videos, and multimedia signals are formed, processed for various tasks, and perceived by human viewers. These categories are naturally quite broad, for two reasons: First, measuring, processing, and understanding perceptual signals involves broad categories of scientific inquiry, including optics, surface physics, visual psychophysics and neurophysiology, information theory, computer graphics, display and printing technology, artificial intelligence, neural networks, harmonic analysis, and so on. Secondly, the domain of application of these methods is limited only by the number of branches of science, engineering, and industry that utilize audio, visual, and other perceptual signals to convey information. We anticipate that the Lectures in this series will dramatically influence future thought on these subjects as the Twenty-First Century unfolds.
