Authors are invited to submit full-length high-quality papers in image
processing and machine vision. Topics include, but are not limited to:

* Statistics and machine learning for vision
* Model-based vision
* Stereo, calibration, and geometry
* Image processing techniques and methods
* Person, face, and gesture recognition
* Texture, shape, and colour
* Motion, flow and tracking
* Video analysis
* Segmentation and feature extraction
* Document processing and recognition
* Biomedical applications
* Vision for visualisation and graphics

All papers will be blind-refereed by three members of the international
programme committee. Successful papers will be presented at the single-track
conference. Proceedings will be published in paper and electronic form and
distributed at the conference and online.

In addition to the contributed papers, the conference will include keynote
presentations by Ramin Zabih, Professor of Computer Science and Radiology at
Cornell University, USA, and Cordelia Schmid, INRIA Research Director at
INRIA Rhones-Alpes, France.

The conference registration includes a pre-conference tutorial, to be given
