Call for Special Sessions

3DTV CONFERENCE 2018 // June 3-5, 2018

3D in any scale and any perspective

On board of Silja Serenade, Stockholm-Helsinki-Stockholm

The 3DTV-CON 2018 Organizing Committee invites proposals for Special Sessions in new or emerging areas related to the most recent advances in the evolution of 3D audio-visual systems beyond stereo. All aspects related to content creation, compression and visualization are of interest, together with technologies and methods to measure and improve the quality of experience (QoE) and user acceptance.

We are seeking innovative works that complement the regular program of the conference. Special Sessions should be focused and provide both an overview of the state-of-the-art, as well as highlight the most promising research directions, trends and challenges in the proposed field.

Topics of interest

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Immersive imaging: virtual reality, omnidirectional and multiview images
  • Interactive and\or multi-user 3D imaging: augmented reality
  • Light field processing (e.g. content creation, compression, visualization)
  • Applications of 3D technology and novel imaging systems
  • QoE and user-acceptance of 3D media, immersive and interactive technology

Special Session topics not included in the list can be proposed by prospective organizers and will be evaluated by the Conference Chairs.
Submitting a Proposal

Proposals for Special Sessions must include:

▪    Title of the special session
▪    Rationale and objective of the special session
▪    Specific topics of interest
▪    Contact information for the special session chair(s)
▪    Short biography of the special session chair(s)
▪    List of potential papers, including title, abstract and author names, affiliations and contact information.

Each Special Session is expected to have 4 to 5 papers and at least one author of each paper must register for the conference and present the paper at the conference.

Proposals will be evaluated based on topic novelty and associated impact, organizing committee qualifications, as well as the proposed list of contributed papers.

Special Session submissions at 3DTVcon are reviewed via the same exact process as submissions to the regular program, and papers are expected to meet the same quality standards. If a Special Session is seriously undersubscribed, the Special Session may be canceled, in which case the accepted papers from the canceled Special Session will be placed into the regular program.

  • Special Sessions proposals due: March 9, 2018
  • Notification of Special Sessions’ acceptance: March 12, 2018
  • Submission Special Session papers: April 2, 2018
