Advances in Multimedia Information Processing - PCM 2005: 6th Pacific Rim Conference on Multimedia, Jeju Island, Korea, November 11-13, 2005

Buy
We are delighted to welcome readers to the proceedings of the 6th Pacific-Rim Conference on Multimedia (PCM). The first PCM was held in Sydney, Australia, in 2000. Since then, it has been hosted successfully by Beijing, China, in 2001, Hsinchu, Taiwan, in 2002, Singapore in 2003, and Tokyo, Japan, in 2004, and finally Jeju, one of the most beautiful and fantastic islands in Korea.

This year, we accepted 181 papers out of 570 submissions including regular and special session papers. The acceptance rate of 32% indicates our commitment to ensuring a very high-quality conference. This would not be possible without the full support of the excellent Technical Committee and anonymous reviewers that provided timely and insightful reviews. We would therefore like to thank the Program Committee and all reviewers.

The program of this year reflects the current interests of the PCM’s. The accepted papers cover a range of topics, including, all aspects of multimedia, both technical and artistic perspectives and both theoretical and practical issues. The PCM 2005 program covers tutorial sessions and plenary lectures as well as regular presentations in three tracks of oral sessions and a poster session in a single track. We have tried to expand the scope of PCM to the artistic papers which need not to be strictly technical. Since we are living in the age of convergence, we believe that convergence of technology and art is also highly needed. However, we realize that bridging the gap between them has not been easy due to the lack of mutual understanding and lack of fair evaluation criteria. Of course, a few papers widen the horizon of the PCM 2005. Traditional topics of multimedia, such as multimedia communications, audio-visual compressions, multimedia security, image and signal processing techniques, multimedia data processing, and other important works are balanced in the PCM 2005.

We give a special thanks to Prof. Jae-Kyoon Kim, General Chair, for his brilliant leadership in organizing this conference. This was an important work which was dealt with very efficiently and harmoniously. Our thanks must go to all the Organizing Committee members for their precious time and enthusiasm. They did their best in financing, publicity, proceedings, registration, Web and local arrangement. We cannot forget Victoria Kim for her professionalism in managing and assisting us as a Conference Secretary. We express our thanks to the sponsors including the Ministry of Information and Communication, the Institute of Information Technology Assessment, Korea National Tourism Organization, and Korea Society of Broadcast Engineers.
