CfP for the Workshop Data-driven Just Noticeable Difference for Multimedia Communication (ICME), to be held on July 10, 2020 at the Queen Mary University of London, UK. This workshop is supported by the SFB-TRR 161, and part of the IEEE Internation Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME 2020).
Deadline March 13, 2020.


Call for Papers

The Picture-wise Just Noticeable Difference (PJND) for a given subject, image/video, and compression scheme is the smallest distortion that the subject can perceive when the image/video is compressed with this compression scheme. The PJND is normally determined with subjective quality assessment tests for a large population of viewers. Knowing the PJND statistics allows to reduce the bitrate without perceptual quality loss for the chosen proportion of the population. The workshop seeks papers proposing novel techniques to determine or predict the PJND statistics, as well as using these statistics for image/video processing, compression, and communication. While the focus of the workshop is on the PJND concept, contributions to the conventional JND approach where a JND threshold is computed at the pixel or subband level are also welcome provided the work is data driven.


Scope and Topics:

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • PJND/JND datasets for images, video, 3D video, omni-directional images/video, and point clouds
  • PJND/JND visual attributes related to contents, displays, the environment and the human visual system
  • Data-driven computational models for PJND/JND
  • Machine learning techniques to estimate the PJND/JND
  • Evaluation methods and metrics for JND/PJND models
  • PJND/JND concept, visual attributes, perception and prediction models
  • Data-driven PJND/JND models and their application to visual perception
  • PJND/JND models and their application to multimedia signal processing, compression and communication
