The IASTED International Conference on Visualization, Imaging, and Image Processing (VIIP 2008) will establish an international medium for the exchange of new ideas and practical experience between researchers and practitioners working in the fields of imaging, image processing, and visualization. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas, as well as their applications. All papers submitted to this conference will be evaluated by at least two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.
VIIP 2008 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:
Artificial Intelligence and Soft Computing (ASC 2008)
Communication Systems and Networks (CSN 2008)
Coastlines of fine sand and clear water abound on the island of Mallorca, the commercial centre of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands. Mallorca is surrounded by the Serra Tramunta mountains, offering spectacular views of the varied landscape, including sheer cliffs that drop into the sea, cities of stunning architecture, and Es Raiguer, Mallorca‚??s agricultural plain, where thousands of almond trees, orchards, and vineyards thrive.
Palma de Mallorca, the capital city of Mallorca and the Balearic Islands, bustles with all types of tourist activities. Enjoy strolling through elaborate gardens, walking the medieval city walls, discovering breathtaking basilicas, cathedrals, and Arab baths dating back to the thirteenth century, or visiting the many art galleries that the city has to offer. If you find your way to the Paseo Maritimo, you can join the Mallorcan locals at the Club de Mar for exciting yachting adventures. After dark, the quaint bistros, traditional Spanish bars, and small jazz and blues clubs will charm their way into your fondest memories.
