Fourth International Workshop on Perceptual Quality of Systems

                                       PQS 2013

                                 2-4 September 2013

                                   Vienna, Austria



The fourth international workshop on Perceptual Quality of
Systems aims to bring together leading professionals and
scientists from different fields that are all related to
perceptual quality. Supported by ISCA and the European COST
action Qualinet, this event will serve as a forum facilitating
for an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas between both academic
and industrial researchers working on different aspects of
perceptual quality of systems. Inaugurated in Herne/Mont Cenis
(2003) and continued in Berlin (2006) and Bautzen (2010), PQS
2013 will be held in Vienna, Austria.

User perceived quality of technical systems is grounded on human
experience and therefore hence a highly complex and
multidimensional phenomenon. Thus, any approach to quality
assessment and prediction has to take the relevant human
perception and judgment factors into account, an issue that has
been addressed by a number of scientific disciplines including
psychophysics, cognitive psychology, speech and audiovisual
quality assessment, human computer interaction (HCI), usability
and user experience research, and Quality of Experience (QoE).

Authors are invited to submit extended paper abstracts (1.5-2
pages) until March 31, 2013 using the guidelines and tools
available under the following link:


Contributions typically refer to methodological aspects of
quality and usability assessment and evaluation, the underlying
perception and judgment processes, as well as to user perceived
quality of particular technologies, systems or services. Topics
of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Methodologies and Methods of Quality Assessment and Evaluation

* Metrology: Test Design and Scaling

* Quality of Speech, Audio and Music

* Quality of Images and Video

* Quality of Haptics

* Quality of Multimodal and Multi-sensory Perception

* Perceptual Quality vs. Quality of Experience vs. User
  Experience vs. Usability

* Semio-Acoustics and -Perception

* Quality Engineering Processes

* Quality and Usability of

                - Speech Technology Devices

                - Interactive Telecommunication Systems and

                - Multi-Modal User Interfaces

                - Haptic and Olfactory Interfaces

                - Audiovisual, 3D and Virtual Reality Systems

Important Dates:

- Submission (Extended Abstracts): March 31, 2013

- Notification of acceptance: May 15, 2013

- Camera-ready submission: June 15, 2013
