In an effort to continue to increase involvement of vision application
companies,  this year's WACV will have a "Development" abstract track
where companies (or soon to be companies) can submit a 1-2 page abstract
of their vision related product or services. These will be reviewed by a
subset of the program committee, but not held to the same
scientific/research standards of a full paper. Rather they are meant to
help introduce the community to the product or application space.  The
abstracts will be on the DVD and will get oral or poster presentations,
but will not appear in IEEE explore.
