September 27, 2016;
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,
Department of Computer
Science at the
University of Konstanz. During this time,
he worked together with
project A05 and the
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!
