New Methods in Image and Video Coding

This Special Session solicits papers that explore novel and inspiring non-standards concepts and formats for image & video coding. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • 2D/3D non-linear processing of pixels and motion, e.g. kernel transforms and kernel prediction
  • Nonlinear Regression, e.g. support vector regression, kernel regression
  • Deep learning strategies
  • Novel motion and texture modelling approaches
  • Visual and cognitive system coding concepts

Submission of papers that report on early and exploratory results are encouraged. Even though the reported results may not be competitive with state-of-the-art image and video coding standards, it is expected that sufficient evidence is provided that allows the evaluation of the potential of the concepts.
