London - CVMP, the European Conference on Visual Media
Production, is calling for submissions. The conference takes
place November 12 and 13, 2009 at the BFI Southbank, London. A new
management team is injecting fresh momentum to this event, which brings
together practitioners in media production from the film, broadcast,
and games industries with leading academics and researchers in imaging
and graphics, says a representative. The two-day conference will
provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge between researchers and
media industry specialists working at the cutting-edge of visual media
production and delivery.
CVMP has traditionally been held at the IET (Institution of
Engineering and Technology), but has a new, larger venue for 2009, and
a dedicated team that will develop and expand the event and associated
activities. The conference chairman is Dr Oliver Grau, lead
technologist at BBC Research & Development, with Adrian Hilton,
from University of Surrey, the program chair.
This year, the latest research developments will be presented
together with real-world, industry applications, combining to deliver a
unique melting pot of ideas and experience. The event promises to be
fascinating and informative, with a line up that already includes Matt
Welford, head of compositing at Weta Digital, professor Marc Pollefeys
from ETHZ, and Dr Toni Mateos of Barcelona Media. Special sessions this
year are Advanced Technology in Postproduction, and Capturing 3D Worlds.
CVMP will also address the increasing demand for 3D stereoscopic
content and delivery for emerging platforms such as e-cinema,
high-resolution home displays, and interactive media, which are fueling
the development of new technology and approaches.
The Call for Papers is now live at www.cvmp-conference.org
those who would like to submit papers on innovative research and
practical applications related to media production, along with a
comprehensive list of suggested topics.
Registration for CVMP 2009 is also live on the CVMP Web site. The
best papers from CVMP 2008 will be published in a special issue of JVRB
(Journal of Virtual Reality and Broadcasting) and the conference
proceedings will be published by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and
