Call for Papers
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 in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and are
listed in the ISI conference proceedings citation index.
Acivs 2009 will 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 the following invited speakers:
* Patrick S.P. Wang (Northeastern University, Boston, MA, USA
and East China Normal University, Shanghai, China).
* Steve Sangwine (University of Essex, UK).
Colour image processing by linear vector methods using projective
* Jordi Inglada (CNES, France).
Multi-modal similarity measures for change detection and image
registration. Theory overview and perspectives for high and very
high resolution remote sensing data.
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.
Techno-Vision special session: performance assessment of vision systems
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,
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.
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
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
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).
