Mobile Image and Video Processing

The intimate presence of mobile devices in our daily life, such as smartphones and various wearable gadgets like smart watches, has dramatically changed the way we connect with the world around us. Research issues and challenges brought by the emerging technologies for mobile image and video lie ahead and many research questions remain to be answered. For example, seamless user experience has been identified as one key factor in designing mobile image and video applications for multiple form factors, but its provision is challenging and requires effective integration of rich mobile sensors and multidisciplinary research.
