CVMP2012 Call for Entries

CVMP 2012, the 9th annual industry-academic conference series on media production for film, broadcast and games, announced a call for papers on all areas of visual media production.

Press release from CVMP2012:

CVMP 2012 is the 9th annual industry-academic conference series on media production for film, broadcast and games. Visual media production brings together expertise in video processing, computer vision, computer graphics, animation and physical simulation. CVMP provides a forum for presentation of the latest research advances combined with key-note and invited talks on state-of-the-art industry practice in content production and post-production. CVMP is rapidly building a reputation as a prime venue for researchers to meet with image practitioners in the film and television industry. For instance, in 2011 48% of the audience was from the film and television post-production industry including representation from high profile post-houses such as Moving Picture Company, Double Negative, and so forth. Furthermore, CVMP hosts keynotes from distinguished researchers and professionals from industry (to name a few from previous years: Jeremy Doig / Google, Roberto Cipolla / Cambridge University, Sylvain Paris / Adobe).

High-quality papers are invited which present novel research related to any aspect of media production. Full length submitted papers will be subject to peer review. The papers will be published in cooperation with Eurographics and ACM. The top 10% of submissions to CVMP 2012 will be invited to submit extended papers to IEEE Transactions on Multimedia.

Papers are invited in all areas of visual media production including:

Image and video based modelling Motion Estimation Visual effects 3D video capture Segmentation and matting Interactive media and games Camera tracking Stereo and 3D video processing 3D-TV Multiple view reconstruction Infilling, object removal and insertion TV, film and e-cinema Video-based human motion capture Image and video synthesis Content management systems Video-based animation Image annotation and classification Real-time imaging systems Scene modelling Image enhancement and restoration Post production using 3D and motion High-dynamic range imaging Stylisation and cartoon rendering Multiple camera systems Illumination and reflectance modelling Novel imaging devices Previsualisation Photo-realistic rendering & animation Omni-directional video Colour processing Relighting images and video 3D and stereo production

Submissions of full technical papers of up to 10 pages are solicited. Accepted papers will be presented as either oral or posters and will appear in the conference proceedings. Further details of online submission and paper formats will be available from the CVMP website.


Notification of Full Paper Acceptance: 23rd July 2012

Submission of Camera Ready: 17th September 2012
