CF PAPERS, WORKSHOPS and TUTORIALS: International Conference on Computer Vision Systems ICVS 2009

http://icvs2009.intelsig.be/

ICVS 2009 1st CALL FOR PAPERS, WORKSHOPS and TUTORIALS
http://icvs2009.intelsig.be/

The 7th International Conference on Computer Vision Systems will take
place October 12-15 2009 in Lige, the cultural and economic capital
of Wallonia, Belgium, continuing the established series of conferences
held so far in Europe and North America.

While most computer vision conferences focus on either algorithms or
applications, ICVS addresses issues arising in the design and
deployment of computer vision *systems*. Its scope includes but is not
limited to the following topics:

- Building Vision Systems: paradigms, architectures, integration,
 control

- Vision for the Real World: robustness, learning, adaptability,
 self-assessment, failure recovery

- Vision for Action: robotics, human-computer interaction,
 perception-action loops

- Vision in Context: knowledge representations, reasoning, goal
 specification, context awareness

- Biological Systems: computer vision inspired by biology or
 psychology

- Implementation Issues: embedded systems, nonstandard hardware,
 real-time systems

- Performance Evaluation: benchmarks, methods and metrics

ICVS brings together researchers and developers from academe and
industry around the world. Due to its perspective on systems, it is a
well-positioned platform for knowledge and technology transfer and for
the identification of application-driven research questions.

The conference proceedings will be published in the Springer series of
Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
