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
