Welcome to the next JPEG, MPEG and VCEG Meeting!


We are glad to announce the next


  • ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29/WG 11 MPEG meeting
  • ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29/WG 1 JPEG meeting
  • ITU/T SG 16/Q6 VCEG meeting

all of which will take place in the Marriott Hotel Warsaw from the 22nd to the 26th of June 2015, hosted by the Poznań University of Technology.

WarsawJPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) is a joint working group of the International Standardization Organization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), with a long tradition in the creation of still image coding standards. The JPEG Committee, more specifically, is Working Group 1 (WG1) (Coding of Still Pictures) of JTC 1’s subcommittee 29 (SC29), Coding of Audio, Picture, Multimedia and Hypermedia Information.

The word “joint” in JPEG does not refer to the joint efforts of ISO and IEC, but to the fact that the JPEG activities are the result of an additional collaboration with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

The experts’ group today working on visual coding within the ITU is informally known as VCEG (Video Coding Experts Group or Visual Coding Experts Group).

Another working group within SC29 is WG11 (Coding of Moving Pictures and Audio) well-known as the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG). The Moving Picture Experts Group is a group of ISO/IEC in charge of the development of international standards for compression, decompression, processing and coded representation of moving pictures, audio and their combination.

JPEG meets at least three times a year to discuss and create the standards for still image compression and processing. MPEG usually holds four meetings a year. These comprise plenary meetings and subgroup meetings on Requirements, Systems, Video, Video coding, 3D Video Audio, 3D Graphics and Communication.

Atlantic Slave Trade in 3D by Zamani project
Trading castles and fortresses along the West African coast bear testimony to one of the saddest chapters of human history, the Atlantic Slave trade. The documentation of St. George’s castle in Elmina, Ghana, in 2006, was one of the first initiatives of the Zamani project. The experience drove Prof. Rüther, Zamani leader, to initiate a project thanks to which most of the architectural sites of the slave trade would be documented and relevant information gathered; Zamani decided then to create a ...
