IG Scope:

The QoE for Multimedia Communications Interest Group (QoEIG) of the IEEE Technical Committee on Multimedia Communications (MMC)  promotes research and development in emerging area of Quality of Experience (QoE) for multimedia (e.g. speech, audio, image, video, graphics, animation, multimodal signals) communications, applications and services (e.g. VoIP, IPTV, HDTV, 3DTV, Immersive presentation). It aims to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss relevant topics and exchange views on the important issues of QoE provisioning, QoE assessment, prediction, control and management. It will assist the IEEE MMC by organizing and supporting ComSoc-sponsored conferences and workshops, and special issues of relevant journals. The technical topics of QoEIG will span, but not limited to the following:

  • Definition of QoE for multimedia applications/services
  • QoE assessment/prediction methods for multimedia services (e.g. VoIP, IPTV, HDTV, 3DTV, Immersive presentation)
  • Quality evaluation of interactive, multiparty and multimodal communication applications and services (e.g. audio and video-conferencing, emerging virtual chat rooms, immersive environment)
  • Subjective methodologies and tests for QoE (e.g. MOS tests for speech, audio, image, video, graphics, animation, audiovisual, or 3D audio/video applications)
  • Objective methodologies and measurement for QoE (e.g. speech, audio, image, video, graphics, animation, audiovisual or multimodal)
  • Databases and validation of objective models
  • Online and offline QoE monitoring schemes
  • QoE provisioning for multimedia communications across heterogeneous networks and Future Internet architectures
  • QoE management solutions
  • QoE adaptation and control mechanisms (e.g. QoE control in content management or QoE control for computer graphic synthetic image composition).
  • QoE-based multimedia networking
  • Influencing policy making
  • Standardization activities
