Image and Video Compression Workshop

Workshop in

Image and Video Compression

- From Principles to Systems

9-10 March 1999

Rydges Melbourne

Melbourne, Australia


School of Computer Science and Software Engineering, Monash University.


Due to the vast amount of data associated with images and video, compression is a key technology for their digital transmission and storage. Advanced compression schemes are known today that enable applications unthinkable only a few years ago, such as digital video broadcasting, video streaming over the Internet or mobile videophones. The workshop presents a comprehensive overview of the principles and algorithms employed in modern source coding schemes for still and moving images. A particular workshop objective is an in-depth understanding of principles behind the current ISO and ITU-T standards, such as JPEG, H.263 and MPEG-2 as well as the technical foundations of new video communication systems (digital TV, HDTV, Internet video).


It targets researchers interested in this rapidly evolving area, as well as engineers, consultants and technical managers involved in projects on transmission or storage of visual information, such as digital broadcasting TV, multimedia, video conferencing, VCD/DVD, VOD or Internet video.


Professor Girod Dr.-Ing. Bernd Girod is a Chaired Professor of Electrical Engineering and the Director of the Telecommunications Laboratory at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. He has published over 170 papers and holds several international patents on image communication, visual computing, and multimedia signal processing. He served as Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing from 1991 to 1995, and as a Member of the Editorial Board of Visual Communication and Image Representation from 1993 to 1996. He has served as Reviewing Editor/Area Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications since 1995. Professor Girod is a member of the Editorial Boards of the following international journals, Computer and Graphics, EURASIP Signal Processing, EURASIP Signal Processing: Image Communication, IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, and ACM Mobile Computing and Communication Review. As an entrepreneur, he has been a founder and Chief Scientist of Vivo Software, Inc., Waltham, MA (1993-1998), Chief Scientist of Realnetworks, Inc., Seattle, WA since 1998, and a Director of 8x8, Inc., Santa Clara, CA since 1996.
