This international conference is a result of merging the Scale Space  conferences and the Variational Level Set Methods conference and is the  second in the series. The conference attempts to bring together two  different  communities with joint research interests: the one on scale space  analysis and the one on variational, geometric and level set methods and  their applications in image interpretation and understanding. Such a  conference serves several purposes: International researchers and  students may be exposed to state-of-the-art research on mathematical,  physical and computational aspects of imaging, computer vision, graphics  and inverse problems with applications.

GENERAL CHAIR:
Xue-Cheng Tai, University of Bergen, Norway.

SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE:
Alfred M. Bruckstein, Technion IIT, Israel  Tony F. Chan, University of California at LA, USA  Mads Nielsen, University of Copenhagen, Denmark  Stanley Osher, University of California at LA, USA  Nikos Paragios, Ecole Centrale de Paris, France  Bart M. ter Haar Romeny, Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands  Christoph Schnoerr, University of Heidelberg, Germany  Fiorella Sgalarri, University of Bologna, Italy  Joachim Weickert, Saarland University, Germany

CONFERENCE TOPICS:
This conference covers areas that include computer vision, image  processing and analysis, signal processing, mathematical imaging and  numerical analysis. Industrial applications related to medical imaging,  visualization, scientific computing and inverse problems are all suited  for this conference.

PROCEEDINGS
As for the first conference in the series, the proceedings will be  published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. All  papers will undergo a thorough refereeing process and the proceedings  will be available at the conference.

DEADLINES
* Abstract submission...........   8th October  2008
* Full paper submission.........  15th October  2008
* Notification of acceptance....  15th January  2009
* Deadline for final paper......  15th February 2009
* Early registration............. 15th March    2009

CONFERENCE LOCATION
The conference will take place at Fleischer's Hotel in Voss, Norway.
Voss is a very beautiful town surrounded by mountains in a very quiet and relaxing enviroment. It can be reached by train or bus, most easily  from Bergen, but also from Oslo.

MORE INFORMATION
Details on the conference proceedings, contributed lectures, and other information about the conference, will be made available on the  conference website. Submissions for the conference will be through the  webpage. For inquiries, please use email: ssvm-2009@math.uio.no.

We look forward to seeing you in Voss, Norway, in June 2009.
