Activity Report from the IVMSP-TC

Nikolaos Boulgouris

Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee (IVMSP TC) promotes and guides the advancement of the field of image, video, and multidimensional signal processing. It provides leadership for the technical programs for ICIP and for the IVMSP-related areas at ICASSP; recruits and volunteers reviewers for ICIP and for the IVMSP-related areas at ICASSP; assists in proposing and organizing ICIP; organizes and operates IVMSP workshops and sessions at ICIP and ICASSP; and participates in a range of other SPS activities.

During the past year, IVMSP TC has continued its key role in overseeing the organization, reviewing process and the technical program of the ICIP and ICASSP conferences, and provided core reviewing by volunteer TC members. ICIP 2019 was held in Taipei, Taiwan, from September 22nd to 25th, and was attended by over 1,600 attendees. The conference featured three keynote lectures given by prominent speakers, 14 tutorials, as well as 13 special sessions from diverse areas in image processing and its applications. Over 2,000 papers were submitted to ICIP 2019, and 945 high-quality papers were accepted for presentation at the conference. Paper presentations were arranged in 69 lecture sessions and 71 poster sessions, which were delivered on electronic screens. E-poster presentations offered dynamic content and enabled new ways of interactivity which were enjoyed by attendees. The technical programme was complemented by industry workshops, challenge sessions, and other events.

The 11th International Symposium on Image and Signal Processing and Analysis (ISPA 2019) was held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, from September 20th to 23rd. The symposium, which was technically co-sponsored by IEEE SPS, included 16 technical sessions with more than 65 presentations and three plenary lectures. The plenary lectures were given by renowned researchers in the fields of signal processing, video communication, and color perception.

This year’s ICASSP will take place in Barcelona, Spain, in May, while ICIP2020 will take place in Abu Dhabi, UAE, in October. The TC’s flagship IVMSP workshop will take place in Nafplio, Greece, in June. The main theme of the workshop will be “Video in the Big Data era” and the paper submission deadline is the 20th of March, 2020. We look forward to the 2020 editions of ICASSP, ICIP, and IVMSP.

In January 2020, the TC has welcomed nine new members. Newly elected members for a three-year term (2020-2022) are, in alphabetical order: Farhan Baqai (Apple Inc), Moncef Gabbouj (Tampere University), Ercan E. Kuruoglu (Institute of Science and Technologies of Information), Jingjing Meng (University at Buffalo, the State University of New York), Guo-Jun Qi (Futurewei Technologies), Yong Man Ro (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology), Aline Roumy (Inria Rennes), Amit Roy-Chowdhury (University of California, Riverside), and Zhou Wang (University of Waterloo). Congratulations to the new members!

IVMSP TC welcomes participation from all members of the SPS technical community interested in the TC areas. Affiliate membership within the TC is open to all, and you are encouraged to sign up. For additional information, please visit the TC website.
