   --------------------------------------------------------------------------
   The Acivs 2008 proceedings are published in the Lecture Notes in 
   Computer Science and listed in the ISI proceedings index.
   

   Sponsored by: IEEE Benelux Signal Processing Chapter, 
              DSP Valley, Philips, NXP, Barco.  

   Acivs 2008 is a conference focusing on techniques for building adaptive,
   intelligent, safe and secure imaging systems. Acivs 2008 consists of four
   days of lecture sessions, both regular (25 mns) and invited presentations,
   and poster sessions. The proceedings of Acivs 2008 will be published by
   Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

   Acivs 2008 will also feature a conference dinner, and other social
   activities. Details of the social activities, which will include a
   reception and a touristic activity, will be announced soon.

   The conference fee includes the social program (conference dinner, 
   opening reception, and cultural activities), coffee breaks, daily 
   lunches and a hard-copy of the proceedings. Students and IEEE 
   members can register at a reduced fee.

                                Invited speakers

   Acivs 2008 will feature a number of invited invited talks. The details
   will be announced later.

                    Topics include (but are not limited to)

     * Vision systems, including multi-camera systems
     * Image and Video Processing (linear/non-linear filtering and
       enhancement, restoration, segmentation, wavelets and multiresolution,
       Markovian techniques, color processing, modeling, analysis,
       interpolation and spatial transforms, motion, fractals and
       multifractals, structure from motion)
     * Pattern Analysis (shape analysis, data and image fusion, pattern
       matching, neural nets, learning, grammatical techniques) and
       Content-Based Image Retrieval
     * Remote Sensing (techniques for filtering, enhancing, compressing,
       displaying and analyzing optical, infrared, radar, multi- and
       hyperspectral airborne and spaceborne images)
     * Still Image and Video Coding and Transmission (still image/video
       coding, model-based coding, synthetic/natural hybrid coding, quality
       metrics, image watermarking, image and video databases, image search
       and sorting, video indexing, multimedia applications)
     * System Architecture and Performance Evaluation (implementation of
       algorithms, benchmarking, evaluation criteria, algorithmic evaluation)

   Both classical research papers and application papers are welcome.

                                     Venue

   The conference will take place in the Ambassadeur hotel in
   Juan-les-Pins on October 20-24, 2008. Juan-les-Pins is located in the
   heart of the French Riviera, 15 km from the Nice International Airport (
   http://www.nice.aeroport.fr), 10 km from Cannes and 190 km from
   Marseille. Nice can also be reached by train from Paris (average travel
   time: 5 hr 1/2).

                      Paper submission and review process

   Prospective authors should prepare a full paper and submit it
   electronically. The paper should consist of 8-12 pages in A4 format and
   should conform to the style guidelines outlined on the Acivs 2008
   website.

   Papers should be submitted in LaTeX format or MsWord format. However the
   use of MSWord is strongly discouraged since MSWord documents, especially
   those containing equations, often suffer from poor typesetting.

   LaTeX style sheets, MSWord templates and more detailed information on
   the submission process can be found on the Acivs 2008 website
   (http://acivs.org/acivs2008/). It is absolutely essential that
   submitted papers are based on the provided templates. Accepted papers
   which do not satisfy the requirements or which cannot be processed without
   changes will be returned to the authors and may not be published.
   All submissions will be reviewed by at least 2 members of the Program
   Committee; additional reviewers will be consulted if needed. The papers
   should provide sufficient background information and should clearly
   indicate the original contribution. They should state and discuss the main
   results and provide adequate references. Paper submission implies that one
   of the authors will present the paper if it is accepted.

                             Conference proceedings

   The proceedings of Acivs 2008 will be published by Springer Verlag in the
   Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. LNCS is published, in
   parallel to the printed books, in full-text electronic form via Springer
   Verlags internet platform (http://www.springerlink.com).
