Call for Papers

Regular Paper Track

We will have a short (4 pages) regular paper track, which allows participants to share research ideas related to image compression. In addition to the paper, we will host a poster session during which authors will be able to discuss their work in more detail.

We encourage exploratory research which shows promising results in:

  • Lossy image compression
  • Quantization (learning to quantize; dealing with quantization in optimization)
  • Entropy minimization
  • Image super-resolution for compression
  • Deblurring
  • Compression artifact removal
  • Inpainting (and compression by inpainting)
  • Generative adversarial networks
  • Perceptual metrics optimization and their applications to compression

And in particular, how these topics can improve image compression.

Challenge Paper Track

The challenge task participants are asked to submit a short paper (up to 4 pages) detailing the algorithms which they submitted as part of the challenge.
