Activity Updates from Multimedia Signal Processing (MMSP) TC

The Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee (MMSP TC) promotes the advancement of multimedia signal processing technology with special emphasis on the interaction, coordination, synchronization, and joint processing of multimedia and multi-modality signals.

Our TC recently organized the 2009 MMSP Workshop in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, marking a milestone for the first time one of the major IEEE Signal Processing Society events being held in Latin America. The event was a great success with approx 100 papers presented and more than 120 attendees. The workshop emphasized immersive telecommunications and collaboration, and featured a number of high-quality keynote and overview talks around this theme. Plans are underway for MMSP 2010, which will be held in Saint-Malo, France. Paper submissions are due 15 April 2010. Please visit the workshop web site for further information.  The TC also invites proposals to organize the 2011 MMSP Workshop -- see the conference news section for details.

Another major effort in 2009 that the MMSP TC is actively engaged in was to revitalize the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo (ICME), a joint multimedia conference that is sponsored by 4 IEEE societies including SPS. Under a new charter, our TC will assume direct responsibility for select technical tracks of the conference. The conference aims to have the top 15% papers accepted for oral presentation and an additional 15% papers accepted for poster presentation. It is also moving to a 6-page paper format and aiming to enhance the main program with workshops and demo events. ICME 2010 will be held in Singapore. Papers are due 15 January 2010. Further details are available on the conference web site.

In January 2010, Phil Chou succeeds Anthony Vetro and becomes the new TC Chair.  Eight newly elected members will start their terms: Homer H. Chen, Daniel P. W. Ellis, Onur Guleryuz, Ebroul Izquierdo, Enrico Magli, Nicu Sebe, Yap-Peng Tan, and George Tzanetakis. The TC also thanks the following members with terms expiring this year for their dedicated service: Yucel Altunbasak, Andrea Cavallaro, Ching-Yung Lin, Beatrice Pesquet-Popescu, Fernando Pereira, Hayder Radha, Amir Said, Zhengyou Zhang and Wenjun Zeng.
