From September 2015 to August 2016, Sung-Hwan Jung, a renowned scientist for image processing and Professor of Computer Engineering at the Changwon National University in Korea, visited the Department of Computer Science at the University of Konstanz. During this time, he worked together with project A05 and the Multimedia Signal Processing Group of Dietmar Saupe.

Prof. Jung has extensively researched on topics in image processing. He brought along a strong interest in image and video quality assessment and fits very well in our research team. His contributions led to the paper “Saliency-driven image coding improves overall perceived JPEG quality”, which was already presented to two groups of experts. It was well received and invited for submission to the special session on perceptual coding at the prominent IEEE Data Compression Conference in Utah, in April 2017. Recently, at the end of August, Sung-Hwan Jung‘s research stay ended, and he returned to Korea.

Thanks for the great cooperation!
