Welcome message

Welcome to MMSP 2020

Enabling immersive audio-visual experiences for the benefit of people and industries

On behalf of the Organizing Committee and the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS), we warmly welcome you to the IEEE International Workshop on Multimedia Signal Processing.

MMSP 2020 is 22nd in the series, organized by the SPS’ Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee, and the first to be run as a fully virtual event. Even though the form has changed, our aim remains the same: bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry, who are passionate about multimedia signal processing, and help them to share their knowledge, exchange ideas, explore future research directions and network.

We invite you to follow the three enlightening keynote speeches, the industry panel on the future of modern imaging, and the 30 ‘oral’, ‘poster’ and ‘demo’ sessions hosting 105 papers and reflecting all significant trends in MMSP. We sincerely thank our authors for not giving up on advancing science in turbulent times!

We invite you also to virtually visit Tampere and Finland, train with our happy coaches, kayak in calm Finnish waters and meet forest survivors (mean squirrels). We are sure you will fly here, when possible.

We are grateful to our sponsors for supporting the virtual event, so that we can provide new ways of interaction and networking. We are especially thankful to our colleagues who have been tirelessly designing, operating and maintaining the conference web site, management system and virtual platform for synchronizing them into a coherent virtual experience.

We did our best and now it is your turn: participate, discuss and network!

Industrial Panel

The Future of Modern Imaging

The panel features industrial experts in various aspects of imaging. Panelists represent companies having based their research arms in Tampere, the city cast as ‘Silicon Valley of Imaging’. The panel will be held on Tuesday, 22 September, 2020.

The panelists will discuss topics around mobile and immersive imaging, building situational awareness and what image quality means for distinctive groups of users. They will be keen to get questions from the audience and eventually sketch what is the next big thing in imaging and how to research it.
