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,

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
