THE MULTIMEDIA RESEARCH GROUP (MRG)





MRG is a research group led by Professor Moncef Gabbouj. The aim of the group is to advance research in several research fields of multimedia signal processing, including audio, image and video. Multimodal and multidisciplinary research work will also be the focus of the multimedia group which will allow the group to engage in large scale academic and industrial projects.
