Course Content

This course is based on interactive sessions where students discuss with the teacher and/or an invited expert. Students study scientific papers which need to be read before each session in order to facilitate a discussion. Students (or the eventual external expert) will be asked to provide their synthesis (presentation of about 15 minutes) at the start of a session. Participation to a scientific congres or a company visit are belonging as well to the possibilities.

The themes are selected based on the interests of the participating students. A non-exclusive list of potential themes encompasses: forensic image processing, high-dynamic range imaging, sociological aspects of new media, error-resilient coding, distributed source coding, the human visual system and perceptual metrics, digital video broadcasting and HDTV, 3D video, 3D graphics and multimedia security.

A multidisciplinary approach is followed where possible.

Additional info

The study material is composed based on the selected subjects.

Seen the interactive nature of the course, the student is obliged to be present during the contact hours.

In case international students are attending the course and by concensus of the other students, this course is given in English.
