This week is the International Conference in Image Processing in Paris, where I will present our work on hierarchical anchoring of motion fields for highly scalable video coding. I arrived one day before the conference to meet some old friends from my time in Eindhoven. Marie and Nico offered me a place to stay, and together with Cecile and Teun, we spent a very nice afternoon together on a beautiful autumn day. We walked along the Seine in a recently opened promenade. A very nice walk, and I’ll have to revise my opinion about Paris 😉
