CFP Media Retargeting Workshop at ECCV 2010


in conjunction with ECCV 2010, September 10, Crete, Greece


Media retargeting is the process of adapting media content such as
images or video to the characteristics of different output devices.

Media retargeting has received considerable attention in computer
vision and graphics research in the recent years due to the growing
variability in capture devices and displays (small displays in mobile
devices, large high resolution displays in home cinema systems) and
the availability of huge amounts of image and video data. Besides
converting video between different display sizes, the spectrum of
problems related to media retargeting also comprises issues such as
color adaptation between different dynamic ranges, or the automatic
conversion of 2D to 3D footage for upcoming stereoscopic consumer
display devices.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners from all areas of computer vision, machine learning,
and computer graphics, and to stimulate the discussion about shared
concepts and recent progress on topics ranging from perceptual content
analysis over efficient optimization algorithms for retargeting to
systematic evaluation of already existing techniques.


We invite high quality, original submissions for presentation during
the workshop. Contributions from the following areas are especially

* video or image retargeting of aspect ratio and resolution
* color retargeting between low and high dynamic ranges
* visual saliency estimation
* attention estimation and perceptual metrics
* temporal retargeting and content summarization
* retargeting of stereoscopic content
* monocular video to stereo conversion
* relevant optimization techniques
* systematic evaluation and user studies of relevant methods
* perceptual studies of retargeting results
* multi-modal retargeting (e.g. video and sound)
