Present CFP : 2022

The Picture Coding Symposium (PCS) is an international forum devoted to advances in visual data coding. Established in 1969, it has the longest history of any conference in this area. The 36th event in the series, PCS 2022, will convene in San Jose, California, USA, the heart of Silicon Valley and the cultural and technological epicenter of Northern California.


PCS 2022 invites you to submit work that pushes the boundaries of image and video coding. The following list contains some examples, but it is not an exhaustive list:

Image and video coding
Model-based and synthetic coding
Screen content coding
Multimodal coding and processing
Learning-based image and video coding
Compressed-domain image/video analysis
Datasets for learning-based visual coding and analysis
Image and video coding for machines
Multi-task image and video coding
Virtual, augmented, and mixed reality coding
360° and multi-view video processing and coding
Point cloud processing and coding
Light field processing and coding
Immersive and volumetric video
Representation, analysis and coding of 3D scenes
Emerging standards for visual data coding
Objective and subjective quality assessment
Transcoding and adaptive streaming
Optimized streaming methods
Real-time video communications
Error robustness, resilience and concealment
Low complexity video compression
Network-, edge- and cloud-based coding
Energy management in compression
Hardware architectures
Protection and integrity of visual data

Paper Submission

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for the Symposium, in English, using the template provided, with a font size of 10 pt and maximum length of five (5) pages including all results, figures and references. Submissions will be accepted only in PDF. Online submission will be available through the symposium web site. We will be submitting the proceedings for publication to IEEEXplore, Scopus and EI indexed.

Note: The conference is currently still preparing for a physical event. In this case paper author-presenters are expected to attend the event unless personal, corporate, or national restrictions apply.

Should it be necessary to run the conference as an on-line or hybrid event, authors will be requested to submit recorded videos of their presentations.
