Call For Papers

Mirage 2009 is an international conference with focus on Computer Vision/Computer Graphics collaboration techniques involving image analysis/synthesis approaches. In the domain of Computer Vision, this analysis by synthesis collaboration may take the form of model-based approaches for which the analysis, recognition or understanding process does not rely on the data only but is linked to the optimization of a parametric model introduced A PRIORI.

In the field of Computer Graphics, this thematic refers to image-based approaches which found the modeling, animation, lighting or rendering process on the analysis of real pre-existing data in order to gain in productivity or in realism. In both cases, this extraction and synthesis collaboration can be iterative and conducted in a loop: the synthesized information laying the foundations for a better characterization that will in turn enable the synthesis step. Augmented Reality is a direct application of this collaboration . Authors are encouraged to submit papers on theoretical, computational, experimental or industrial aspects of model-based image analysis and image-based model synthesis.

Mirage 2009 will be held in the new Jacques-Louis Lions conference room of the INRIA Rocquencourt research centre on May, 4-6 2009. The INRIA Rocquencourt research centre is located at a short drive of the historic Versailles castle. The Gala dinner will take place on the main floor of the Chateau Des Mesnuls where attendees will be able to feel the warm (unforgettable!) atmosphere of ancient times.

Venue and transportation

The Symposium will take place in the new Jacques-Louis Lions conference room within the INRIA Rocquencourt research centre. The center can be easily reached by car, by train or by bus, either by taking public transportations or the free INRIA facilities. The different routes are fully detailed on the INRIA special webpage.

Should a sufficient number of people be interested, a free daily shuttle between Paris and Rocquencourt could be provided. If you are interested, please tick the appropriate box on the registration form.

Registration fees do not include lodging and travel expenses. Some information on accommodation in Paris or Versailles is available on the Paris and Versailles web sites.

In case of any problem as well as for additional information, do not hesitate to get in touch with the conference office (Chantal Girodon) which will operate during the whole conference.
Conference languages

The official conference language is English.
Paper submission and review process

Prospective authors should prepare a full paper and submit it electronically. The paper should consist of 8-12 pages in A4 format and should conform to the style guidelines outlined on the Mirage 2009 website. LaTeX style sheets (preferred), MSWord templates and detailed information on the submission process can be found on the Mirage 2009 website.

All submissions will be reviewed by at least 2 members of the Program Committee; additional reviewers will be consulted if necessary. The papers should provide sufficient background information and should clearly indicate the original contribution. They should state and discuss the main results and provide adequate references.
Confererence proceedings

Accepted papers will be published in the LNCS series of SPRINGER VERLAG.

Mirage 2009 Registration

Due to security policy, the number of seats at the conference is strictly limited: thus, early registration is strongly recommended. Online registration will be available later. Fees will be fully returned for any written cancellation received up to 8 days before the conference. No refund will be made in respect of cancellation received after this date.

Registration fees include free access to any exhibition within the conference, a copy of the conference proceedings, lunches and coffee breaks; a social program will also be available. Registration fees do not cover lodging and travel expenses.

Note that one registration fee must be paid for each accepted paper.
