Information for the Special Issue

Special Issue Call for Papers:

Recent years have witnessed the rapid development of head mounted displays, 360 degree capturing devices, GPU/CPU, and content production, that promote a great popularity of Virtual Reality (VR) related multimedia applications and services. High efficiency visual information processing technologies for VR has become key research issues. Various technologies are being investigated to achieve high efficiency in visual information processing for Virtual Reality, such as the development of high performance video compression, subject and object quality assessment, 3D interaction/selection/manipulation, and immersive media-cloud system and service. We see a timely opportunity for organizing a special issue to bring together active researchers to share recent progress in this exciting area.

This Special Issue invites researchers in all related fields (including but not limited to image and video signal processing, computer vision and pattern recognition, multimedia communications, human-computer interaction) to join us to share their latest innovations and experiences on all aspects of recently-developed techniques and new methods for VR and its related areas such as augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and 3D user interfaces. ALL submissions must highlight their approaches and discuss how their solutions deal with solution of Virtual Reality. The topics of interest of this Special Issue include but are not limited to:
