NOTE that in recognition of the current world situation, IS&T plans to allow accepted registered authors to provide remote presentations.

Conference Overview

The recent progress in web, social networks, and mobile capture and presentation technologies has created a new wave of interest in imaging and multimedia topics, from multimedia analytics to content creation and repurposing, from engineering challenges, to aesthetics and legal issues, from content sharing on social networks, to content access from Smart Phones with cloud-based content repositories and services. Compared to many subjects in traditional imaging, these topics are more multi-disciplinary in nature. This conference will provide a forum for researchers and engineers from various related areas, both academic and industrial to exchange ideas and share research results in this rapidly evolving field.
