H.264 video encoding tools and the development of efficient hardware architectures
Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul –
The H.264/AVC (Advanced Video Coder) or MPEG-4 part 10, is the current state-of-the-art in video coding, providing the highest compression ratios achievable by an internationally standardized video coder (ISO/IEC and ITU-T). These compression capabilities are achieved by a well refined set of coding tools. However further improvements were required and H.264 has already been revised twice to provide new profiles for fidelity extension and professional applications in 2005 and scalability support (H.264/SVC – Scalable Video Coder) in 2007. A third revision under development by JVT (Joint Video Team) aim to support video sources with multiple views (H.264/MVC – Multi-view Video Coder). This lecture presents an overview of the coding tools used by the H.264/AVC and some algorithmic optimizations developed by the UFRGS (Brazil) team toward hardware architecture development for real-time high-definition encoders and decoders.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
The program and more details are available here.
