Advanced Concepts for Intelligent Vision Systems
Dec. 13-16, 2010
Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia
Acivs 2010 is a conference focusing on techniques for building adaptive, intelligent, safe and secure imaging systems. Acivs 2010 consists of four days of lecture sessions, both regular (25 mns) and invited presentations, poster sessions and a special session on Distributed Camera Systems.
Acivs 2010 will also feature a conference dinner, and other social activities. The social activities will be detailed later.
The conference fee (early registration: 590 AU$ students, 690 AU$ for IEEE-members, and 790 AU$ for other participants) includes the social program (conference dinner, opening reception, and cultural activities), coffee breaks, daily lunches and a hard-copy of the proceedings.
Acivs 2010 will feature a number of invited talks.
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, information geometry) * 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 and video protection, image and video databases, image search and sorting, video indexing, multimedia applications) * System Architecture and Performance Evaluation (implementation of algorithms, GPU implementation, benchmarking, evaluation criteria, algorithmic evaluation)
Both classical research papers and application papers are welcome.
Special session on distributed camera systems
Organizers: Richard Kleihorst, VITO NV& Ghent University, Belgium; Abbas Bigdeli, NICTA, Australia.
Single camera vision is a process that looses information by projecting a 3D scene on the 2D image sensor. In order to retrieve 3D scene information either depth cameras, object motion or multiple view directions are necessary. In this special session we invite papers on intelligent vision systems that explicitly make use of multiple cameras or multiple visual sensors to approach a vision challenge.
Example Areas of Interest
* 2D/3D occupancy sensing
* 3D industrial and agricultural vision applications
* Automotive applications
* Geographical mapping applications
* Multi-view based robot control
Prospective authors of papers should indicate during their submission that their contribution is aimed at this special session. The Program Chairs may move papers that are otherwise of high-quality to the main conference program if they don’t fit the scope of the special session.
The conference will take place in the Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia on Dec. 13-16, 2010.

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 2010 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 2010 website (http://acivs.org/acivs2010/). 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.
Pending approval, the proceedings of Acivs 2010 should 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).
