ISMM'2007 Call for Papers

8th INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON MATHEMATICAL MORPHOLOGY
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
October 10-13, 2007
http://ismm.dpi.inpe.br


This symposium is the eighth in a series of international workshops 
devoted to the area of mathematical morphology and its applications in 
image and signal processing. The scientific program will include invited 
talks, tutorials, contributed papers and poster presentations. 
Participants will have the opportunity to be exposed to the most recent 
developments in the field and meet colleagues from all around the world. 
In addition, the city of Rio de Janeiro is internationally renowned for 
its tourist attractions and natural beauty, displaying a unique 
combination of beach, mountain, and tropical rain forest all in one place.

CONFERENCE INFORMATION

The conference website for ISMM2007 is hosted by the Brazilian National 
Institute of Space Research (INPE), at the URL: 
http://ismm.dpi.inpe.br/. It contain updated information about all 
aspects of the conference, as well as author instructions for electronic 
submission. It also contains the Call for Donations to the Henk Heijmans 
Solidarity Fund. Upon registering for the conference, participants will 
be given the option to contribute to this fund. Additionally, the 
Organization Committee can be reached at the e-mail address: 
ismm2007@ime.usp.br

SUBMISSION PROCEDURES

There will be three classes of submission to ISMM2007:

 Tutorials
 Full Papers
 Abstracts (to be presented as posters)

Prospective authors are invited to submit contributions in one or more 
of the categories above, using the electronic procedure described on the 
conference web site. All submissions must be written in English and 
include the names, addresses, and e-mail addresses of the authors. 
Document length (including artwork and references) is limited to 12 
pages for full papers and 2 pages for abstracts, with no a-priori length 
limit for tutorial proposals (initial submission of tutorial proposals 
may consist of extended summaries). Authors are strongly encouraged to 
adopt the LaTeX typesetting system for submission (appropriate style 
files are available from the conference website).

In case of problems with the electronic procedure, the authors are 
advised to contact the Organization Committee at the address: 
ismm2007@ime.usp.br

Acceptance of papers will be based on appropriateness of the topic, 
quality, novelty, and clarity of exposition. Each paper will be reviewed 
by at least two referees appointed by the Program Committee. The reviews 
will be returned to the authors. Abstracts are held to a lower 
requirement of novelty and completeness, and will be reviewed by the 
Poster Session chairpersons. Tutorials will be evaluated by the 
Organizing Committee for merit, breadth, timeliness, and usefulness to 
the ISMM2007 targeted audience.

All accepted contributions will appear in the online proceedings, 
whereas accepted papers will also appear in a printed book. Both will be 
available at the start of the conference. Final submissions of accepted 
contributions will have to be prepared by the authors in camera-ready 
form using LaTeX, according to style files provided on the conference 
web site (final submissions do not include any audiovisual materials to 
be presented during the conference). There are plans for a special issue 
of a peer-reviewed journal in the field of image analysis, containing 
expanded versions of the best papers, as judged by the Program Committee 
(details to be announced on the website).
