Call for Contributions

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from the two fields
of technical quality assessment (TQA) and aesthetic quality assessment
(AQA) for sharing of ideas and discussion on current trends,
developments, issues, and future directions, with the vision to
accelerate the progress of research in both fields. Our hope is that
the bridging between TQA and AQA will result in better understanding
of quantitative measures of quality of experience in the broader
context of multimedia applications. The scope of this workshop spans
the following categories:

Analysis and prediction of aesthetic and technical visual quality:

    Traditional and deep-learning-based approaches

    Aesthetics/QoE related concepts, e.g. interestingness, popularity, viralness

Datasets for TQA and AQA, including:

    New approaches to data collection procedures and sources

    New data augmentation methods

Applications of TQA and AQA in computer vision or image processing tasks:

    Visual filtering and retrieval (recommendation, image gallery/video)

    Visual editing (recomposition, retargeting, cropping)

    Assessment guided visual enhancement

    Real-world systems and applications

    Applications to media such as light fields, 360 or stereo, point clouds.

Invited Speakers

Alan Conrad Bovik Professor, UT-Austin, Primetime Emmy Award Winner
for the development of video quality measurement tools that are now
standards in television production.

James Z. Wang Professor, Penn. State University, Pioneering researcher
in the field of aesthetics quality assessment
