AISB miscellaneous Bulletin Item

CFP: Deadline extension CVIU - Special Issue on Intelligent Vision Systems

You can now submit your paper on the elsevier site for this special issue
The deadline has been extended to January 1st 2008


Computer Vision and Image Understanding 
 Special Issue on Intelligent Vision Systems 

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 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. 

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?
