8th International Conference on Quality of Multimedia Experience
6-8 June, 2016, Lisbon, Portugal, www.qomex2016.org
Call for Papers
The 8th International Conference on Quality of Multimedia Experience
(QoMEX 2016) will be held in June 2016, in Lisbon, Portugal. It will
bring together leading experts from academia and industry interested in
the evaluation of multimedia quality and user experience. QoMEX 2016
will address theory and applications of measuring the quality of user
experiences, based on both objective and subjective psychophysiological
approaches. The program will include presentations of novel research
theories, applications and results in lecture, poster and plenary
sessions, as well as special sessions organised by internationally
recognised experts in the area.
