29th Picture Coding Symopsium, 7-9 May 2012, Kraków, Poland


PCS 2012 is organized in the week just after MPEG meeting. Our suggestion is to take a flight from Geneva to Krakow on Saturday, and use Sunday to visit Krakow or its surroundings. It is a very interesting city indeed. You may visit attractions of Krakow on your own or you may book an organized tour (e.g. royal castle Wawel, historic Jewish city Kazimierz or Aushwitz-Birkenau etc.). In internet you may find several tour operators, e.g. www.cracowtours.pl. See also.

When travelling from Geneva to Krakow you will need to change the plane in one of the the following cities: Munich (Germany), Frankfurt (Germany), Warsaw (Poland), Vienna (Austria). There is no passport control on these trips (of course you need your personal document to pass security screening).

The organizers will try to concentrate the HEVC-related (and not related to 3D video) papers possibly on Wednesday, May 9th. Nevertheless we are unable to ensure that all HEVC-related papers will be presented on Wednesday.
