H19: Human Perception in Multimedia Computing

Paper Submission for H19

SMC2018:H19 submission site (external site)


Human perception has been studied extensively and for a long time in psychology, but only in the late twentieth century has it emerged as a research area in computer graphics, image processing, computer vision, multimedia communication, and related disciplines. From the human-computer interface (HCI) perspective, audio and visual data can trigger conscious and unconscious user responses. The perceptual approach assumes that perceived quality is essential provided it is noticeable to the human visual system (HVS); details that do not enhance perceived quality only waste computational and network resources. Experiments assessing the limitation of the human visual system show that multimedia applications can take advantage of these human perceptual limits. With the emerging areas of social computing, mobile sensing, crowdsourcing, and so on, the perceptual approach and QoE optimization technology can be applied in conjunction to achieve higher system efficiency. Topics in this special session include but are not limited to: Human Perception and Visual Quality, HumanOriented Multimedia Computing, Advanced Multimedia User Experiences, Human and Mobile Media, Human-based Sensing and Data Mining, Human Perception and Active Machine Learning, Human Perception and Smart Cities.
