CFP: Computer Vision and Image Understanding - Special Issue on Intelligent Vision Systems

http://www.elsevier.com/cviu/

CALL FOR PAPERS

Computer Vision and Image Understanding
  Special Issue on Intelligent Vision Systems

Introduction:
The explosive number of video cameras and the increasing computing power 
of computers extend the potential number of applications of vision 
algorithms. It brings also new challenges to the vision community.
In particular the design of intelligent and robust vision systems 
becomes a rising topic for both researchers and developers from academic 
fields and industries worldwide. With this special issue we intend to 
cover all aspects of Intelligent Vision Systems. By this we mean vision 
systems that interact with or respond to their environment in a dynamic 
and adaptive manner, with an emphasis put on integrated systems that are 
robust enough to be deployed in largely unconstrained environments.

We solicit papers for a special issue of Computer Vision and Image 
Understanding (CVIU) relating to Intelligent Vision Systems. This call 
was motivated by the proceedings of the 5th International Conference on 
Computer Vision Systems (ICVS'07 http://www.icvs2007.org/) held in 2007 
at Bielefeld University, Germany on March 21st-23rd. We welcome 
submission from researchers and engineers who did not participate to the 
conference, as well as from  those who did.

Topics:
Potential Topics include all aspects of intelligent vision systems:
-Computer vision from a system perspective: applications, architecture, 
integration and control
-Cognitive vision techniques for scene analysis, semantic 
interpretation, and learning
-Methods and metrics for performance evaluation

Review criteria:
Papers will be reviewed by an international program committee according 
to the following criteria:

Pertinence: Does the paper describe methods or theories concerning the 
theme of the special issue?

Scientific quality: Does the paper clearly identify a scientific 
problem, document the state of the art and demonstrate an original 
technique or method that resolves the problem?

Impact: Is the method/model likely to be adopted for the design
or evaluation of computer vision systems?

Generality: Can the method/model be used for a variety of problems? Is 
it non-specific?

Innovation: Does the method/model demonstrate an improvement in the 
current state of the art?


Important Dates:

Full paper due:                             December 1  2007
First notification of acceptance:           April 1    2008
Revised manuscript (for second review) due: May 1 2008
Acceptance notification:                    July 1 2008
Final manuscript due:                          August 1 2008
Publication for the special issue:          the 4th quarter of 2008

Submission procedure:
All the papers should be full journal length versions and follow the 
guidelines set out by CVIU.
All the papers will be peer reviewed following the CVIU reviewing 
procedures.
