I have just created my profile in Google Scholar:
I have just given two lessons at the University of Naples: “Advanced Video Coding standards” and 3D Video
Two new accepted articles. The first is with Claudio, about video streaming on MANETs with congestion constraints(IEEE TMM); the second is with Abdalbassir, about side information generation in DVC (IEEE TCSVT).

The group 4.1 (for whom I am the tutor) has chosen their project: a mobile application for image recogniction, namely for pictures in museums.
The website of the group is here.
One of the most popular representations of multiview video and arguably the most adapted to free-viewpoint television is the so-called multiple-views-plus-depth (MVD) format.
More information about my research on MVD is available here.
Three-years contract to achieve a PhD degree.
The topic is the problem of interactive streaming of multiview video.
Multiview video is composed of several video sequences, each corresponding to a different point of view. Interactive acces to this video requires switches from one view to another. This is problematic from the point of view of predictive coding: making prediction from one image to a second one belonging to another view is complex (all inter-view dependencies should be taken into account); independent coding is not effective. Possible solutions are based on distributed video coding.
