Summary:

We are pleased to announce a special issue of the Computer 
Vision and Image Understanding Journal addressing the same 
topics as "OMNIVIS'2007 - The Seventh Workshop on Omnidirectional 
Vision, Camera Networks and Non-classical Cameras", that was held 
in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on the 21th of October, 2007. 

Contributions are sought on new and original research on any aspect 
of omnidirectional vision and camera networks, including novel sensor 
design, panoramic vision applications, and scalable algorithms for 
large-scale camera networks. 

The call for papers is open to every author independently of having 
participated or not in the workshop (see submission procedure).

The Special Issue will focus on any aspect of networked, distributed, 
and omnidirectional Vision, as well as Vision by non-traditional cameras. 
Papers concerning new sensor design, modeling and calibration of 
omnidirectional cameras, or applications of panoramic vision are welcome. 
In addition contributions are sought for new and original research on 
problems associated with large-scale networks of cameras.    



Scope 

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Omnidirectional cameras
   -calibration
   -radiometric issues
   -structure-from-motion
   -visual servoing
   -image processing
   -applications
- Large and medium scale camera networks  
   -camera deployment and distributed calibration
   -continuous calibration, e.g., of non-stationary camera networks
   -decentralized algorithms robust to node failures
   -applications: surveillance, tele-immersion, intelligent environments
- Non-classical sensors
   -algorithms and calibration
   -novel, application-tailored designs

Submission Procedure:

The call for papers is open to every author independently of having 
participated or not in the workshop. The contributors of the best works 
of OMNIVIS'2007 are invited to submit a revised version of their articles.  
Authors who did not participate in the workshop, but that are developing 
new and original research in the field, are also strongly encouraged to 
submit their works. Every received article will be treated in the same 
grounds. All papers will be subject to a complete review process which 
will be carried out by three experienced researchers in the field.   

Papers should be full journal length versions following the guidelines set 
out by CVIU. All papers should be submitted via the CVIU web-site with 
Article Type $B!F(BSpecial Issue: Omnidirectional Vision$B!G(B

http://ees.elsevier.com/cviu/

Important Note: When submitting papers, the authors should select the 
specific article type indicated AND include a line in their cover letter 
as a failsafe [example: "This manuscript is submitted to the Special Issue 
on Omnidirectional Vision, Camera Networks and Non-conventional Cameras"].

Full author guides (Preparation of Manuscript, Copyright and Permissions, 
Author Inquiries, Submission of Manuscripts) and on-line submission links 
can be found from the above link. All papers will be peer reviewed following 
the CVIU reviewing procedures.
