ACIVS 2009 : Advanced Concepts for Intelligent Vision Systems
Conference Series : Advanced Concepts for Intelligent Vision Systems
Call For Papers
As was the case for the previous editions of this conference, we aim to publish the proceedings of Acivs 2009 in the Springer Lecture Notes on Computer Science (approval pending).
Acivs 2009 is a conference focusing on techniques for building adaptive, intelligent, safe and secure imaging systems. Acivs 2009 consists of four days of lecture sessions, both regular (25 mns) and invited presentations, poster sessions and a special session on performance assessment of vision systems. The proceedings of Acivs 2009 will be published by Springer Verlag (approval pending) in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and are listed in the ISI proceedings index.
Acivs 2009 will also feature a conference dinner, and other social activities. The social activities are detailed below.
The conference fee includes the social program (conference dinner, opening reception, and cultural activities), coffee breaks, daily lunches and a hard-copy of the proceedings. Students, IEEE and SEE members can register at a reduced fee .
Acivs 2009 will feature a number of invited invited talks. The details will be announced later.
Techno-Vision special session: performance assessment of vision systems
Organizer: Joseph Mariani, LIMSI, France.
The objective of this special session is to provide a forum for researchers, industry, and users of vision systems to present and discuss the state-of-the-art in performance assessment of machine vision and image processing systems.
Prospective authors are invited to submit papers addressing issues such as (but not limited to): database construction, task decomposition, metrics selection and/or design, protocols, workflow automation, scientific, technical and organizational conclusions provided by the experiments conducted in the evaluation campaigns, etc.
The papers should be submitted in the same way as regular papers, but authors should indicate their preference for the special session during the electronic paper submission process.
Conference topics include (but are not limited to)
* Vision systems, including multi-camera systems
* Image and Video Processing (linear/non-linear filtering and enhancement, restoration, segmentation, wavelets and multiresolution, Markovian techniques, color processing, modeling, analysis, interpolation and spatial transforms, motion, fractals and multifractals, structure from motion)
* Pattern Analysis (shape analysis, data and image fusion, pattern matching, neural nets, learning, grammatical techniques) and Content-Based Image Retrieval
* Remote Sensing (techniques for filtering, enhancing, compressing, displaying and analyzing optical, infrared, radar, multi- and hyperspectral airborne and spaceborne images)
* Still Image and Video Coding and Transmission (still image/video coding, model-based coding, synthetic/natural hybrid coding, quality metrics, image watermarking, image and video databases, image search and sorting, video indexing, multimedia applications)
* System Architecture and Performance Evaluation (implementation of algorithms, benchmarking, evaluation criteria, algorithmic evaluation)
Both classical research papers and application papers are welcome.
The conference will take place in the Mercure chateau chartrons, Bordeaux, France on September 28 - October 2, 2009. Bordeaux is 12 km from the Merignac International Airport (http://www.bordeaux.aeroport.fr/). Bordeaux can also be reached by train from Paris (average travel time: 3 hours).
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 Acivs 2009 website.
Papers should be submitted in LaTeX format or MsWord format. However the use of MSWord is strongly discouraged since MSWord documents, especially those containing equations, often suffer from poor typesetting.
LaTeX style sheets, MSWord templates and more detailed information on the submission process can be found on the Acivs 2009 website (http://acivs.org/acivs2009/). It is absolutely essential that submitted papers are based on the provided templates. Accepted papers which do not satisfy the requirements or which cannot be processed without changes will be returned to the authors and may not be published.
All submissions will be reviewed by at least 2 members of the Program Committee; additional reviewers will be consulted if needed. 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. Paper submission implies that one of the authors will present the paper if it is accepted.
The proceedings of Acivs 2009 will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. LNCS is published, in parallel to the printed books, in full-text electronic form via Springer Verlags internet platform (http://www.springerlink.com).
