Call for papers: We live in a visual world. The perceived quality of images is of crucial importance in industrial, medical, and entertainment applications. Developments in digital printing, flat-panel displays, camera sensors, image-processing power, and 3-D imaging are enabling new enhanced possibilities for creating and conveying visual content that informs or entertains. Wireless networks and mobile devices expand the ways to share imagery. Image and video in these applications can be impaired by many factors at different stages, including capture, processing, editing, compression, protection, transmission, and display.

This special section of the Journal of Electronic Imaging will focus on advances in image and video quality assessment and techniques for evaluating overall system performance and user quality of experience (QoE). Submissions are welcome on aspects of quality and relating to all types of visual imagery (2-D images and video, 3-D, S3D, and HDR, etc.) and a variety of applications (display, printing, multimedia delivery, video surveillance, etc.). Topics for this special section include but are not limited to:

  • Image and video quality attributes characterization and metrics
  • Psychophysical testing and scaling of image and video quality
  • Image and video preference measurement and modeling
  • Image quality and saliency, scene dependency
  • Development of test image and video databases with perceptual reference data
  • Advances in perceptual image and video quality understanding
  • Vision-based modeling of image and video quality perception
  • Quality and aesthetics in images and videos
  • Modeling QoE
  • Quality of multimedia content delivery over networks
  • Multimedia and cross-media system evaluations
  • Task-oriented image and video quality evaluation (e.g. medical, imaging, automotive vision, video surveillance, and remote sensing)
  • Standards for image and video quality assessment
  • Mobile imaging performance
  • Multimodal (audio and video) subjective and objective quality assessment and metrics
  • Subjective and objective quality assessment and metrics for new media (ultra HD, HDR, stereo and multiview, augmented reality etc.)

Manuscripts due 1 April 2014.
