• 6 submissions
• 66% acceptance rate
• Reasons for rejection
– „Out of scope“ (pure math)
– Quality issues
Modus operandi
Each PC member reviewed all submissions
PC chair collected the individual reviews
Reviews were distributed to the PC
Electronic discussion (1st week of March)
Extensive feedback for authors was provided
• Exceptional: One „conditional“ accept
– Authors were given the opportunity to revise their
• small number of submissions
– more „advertising“? how/where ...
– cancel the session?
• plan a revision loop from the beginning
(more important than for the paper track)
• call needs some clarification
(to avoid „out of scope“ cases)
• world of video formats has become a zoo
– enforce specific conditions on audio & video codecs?
