Michel Chion’s landmark Audio-Vision has exerted significant influence on our understanding of sound-image relations since its original publication in 1994. Chion argues that sound film qualitatively produces a new form of perception. Sound in audiovisual media does not merely complement images. Instead, the two channels together engage audio-vision, a special mode of perception that transforms both seeing and hearing. We don’t see images and hear sounds separately—we audio-view a trans-sensory whole. In this updated and expanded edition, Chion considers many additional examples from recent world cinema and formulates new questions for the contemporary media environment. He takes into account the evolving role of audio-vision in different theatrical environments, considering its significance for music videos, video art, commercial television, and the internet, as well as conventional cinema. Chion explores how multitrack digital sound enables astonishing detail, extending the space of the action and changing practices of scene construction. He demonstrates that speech is central to film and television and shows why “audio-logo-visual” is a more accurate term than “audiovisual.” Audio-Vision shows us that sound is driving the creation of a sensory cinema. This edition includes a glossary of terms, a chronology of several hundred significant films, and the original foreword by sound designer, editor, and Oscar honoree Walter Murch.

A major change has taken place at dance clubs worldwide: the advent of the VJ. Once the term denoted the presenter who introduced music videos on MTV, but now it defines an artist who creates and mixes video, live and in sync to music. This book looks at the artists at the forefront of this amazing audio-visual experience.

Bringing Them Under the Same Roof The Haptic and Audio Interaction Design workshop series is now in its third year. These workshops have already demonstrated a clear need for a venue in which - searchers and practitioners in these areas gather together under the same roof. Three years have also shown clear developments in the approaches taken – with the benefits of combining haptics and audio shown practically and conceptually in this year’s - pers. In other words, it seems that when there is interaction between audio and haptic researchers, they really learn from each other and multimodal approaches emerge. There are many good reasons for using haptics and audio together. There are the practical needs in application development. Mobile devices are an obvious example – while the device is small in size and is used on the move, interaction cannot rely solely on visual display. On the other hand, the development of applications for visually impaired people makes it necessary to learn how to design non-visual user-interfaces for different situations.

The four-volume set comprising LNCS volumes 3021/3022/3023/3024 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 8th European Conference on Computer Vision, ECCV 2004, held in Prague, Czech Republic, in May 2004. The 190 revised papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from a total of 555 papers submitted. The four books span the entire range of current issues in computer vision. The papers are organized in topical sections on tracking; feature-based object detection and recognition; geometry; texture; learning and recognition; information-based image processing; scale space, flow, and restoration; 2D shape detection and recognition; and 3D shape representation and reconstruction.

Sound and Vision is the first significant collection of new and classic texts on video and brings together some of the leading international cultural and music critics writing today. Addressing one of the most controversial forms of popular culture in the contemporary world, Sound and Vision confronts easy interpretations of music video - as promotional vehicles, filmic images and postmodern culture - to offer a new and bold understanding of its place in pop music, television and the media industries. The book acknowledges the history of the commercial status of pop music as a whole, as well as its complex relations with other media. Sound and Vision will be an essential text for students of popular music and popular culture.

This volume collects the papers accepted for presentation at the 11th Inter- tionalConferenceonAdvancedConceptsforIntelligentVisionSystems (ACIVS 2009). Following the ?rst meeting in Baden-Baden (Germany) in 1999, which was part of a large multiconference, the ACIVS conference then developed into an independent scienti?c event and has ever since maintained the tra- tion of being a single track conference. ACIVS 2009 attracted computer sci- tists from 25 di?erent countries, mostly from Europe, but also from Australia, New-Zealand and Japan, and from the USA and Mexico. Although ACIVS is a conference on all areas of image and video processing, submissionstendtogatherwithincertainmajor?eldsofinterest.Aswasthecase lastyear,aboutaquarteroftheselectedpapersdealwithimageandvideocoding and processing, including ?ltering and restoration and low-level analysis.

We would like to thank the invited speakers Steve Sangwine (University of Essex, UK) and Jordi Inglada (CNES, France) for enhancing the technical program with their presentations.
