Call for Papers

The organizing committee is delighted to invite you to the 28th Picture Coding Symposium (PCS 2010), to be held in Nagoya, Japan, on December 7-10, 2010.

PCS is an international forum devoted specifically to advancements in visual data coding. PCS is the pioneer and has the longest history in this field. Since 1969, PCS has provided the most exciting meeting place for the visual coding community: industry, research, academia, and users. In line with the tradition of PCS, challenging exploratory contributions are very welcomed.

In PCS 2010, in addition to the three day symposium held on December 8-10, the one day workshop will be held on December 7. This workshop includes the 25th Picture Coding Symposium of Japan and the 15th Image Media Processing Symposium (PCSJ/IMPS).
