**********************************************************************
First IEEE International Workshop on
Quality of Multimedia Experience QOMEX'09

2009 July 29-31, San Diego, CA, USA
**********************************************************************

The first IEEE International Workshop on Quality of Multimedia Experience
(QOMEX) will bring together leading professionals and scientists in
multimedia quality and user experience from around the world.

Typically, multimedia processing algorithms are evaluated using objective
metrics or through subjective testing in a controlled environment. However,
perceived user experience is psychological in nature and changes in
different environmental conditions and with different multimedia devices.
Therefore, new techniques are needed to asses and enhance multimedia
experience from the user perspective. QOMEX'09 is an international forum to
gather experts from academia and industry to present the latest
developments on evaluation of multimedia quality based on user experience.

QOMEX'09 features oral presentations, exhibits, panels and poster sessions
in order to provide attendees with various channels to exchange and acquire
information about the latest developments and future trends in the field of
multimedia quality evaluation. The topics of interest include but are not
limited to:

- USER EXPERIENCE ASSESSMENT AND ENHANCEMENT: New metrics to define quality
of user experience, interaction between auditory, visual, affective and
other modalities and their impact on user experience, UI design, user
experience rendering, user experience acquisition, human and multimedia
device interaction, multimedia quality evaluation tools for generic and
specific applications.

- VISUAL USER EXPERIENCE (Image/Video/Graphics): Objective quality metrics,
subjective quality evaluation, psycho-visual modeling, quality-centered
processing, compression and transmission, artifacts reduction, relationship
between errors/noise/losses to human perception, display-specific
processing, 3D Video, quality evaluation in HD and beyond, quality
evaluation in HDR content, quality issues in streaming video.

- AUDITORY USER EXPERIENCE (Speech/Audio): Psycho-acoustic modeling,
quality assessment of interactive speech applications, VoIP, modeling based
on human auditory perception, intrusive/non-intrusive models for quality
evaluation.

- STANDARDIZATION ACTIVITIES IN MULTIMEDIA QUALITY EVALUATION: Benchmarking
efforts, databases and multimedia content characteristics, testing
conditions, new objective metrics and models for upcoming standards.


Prospective authors are invited to submit papers of no more than six (6)
pages in IEEE double-column format including results, figures and
references before March 1, 2009.
