June 11-13, 2003, Halifax, Canada
is a single-track conference consisting of high quality, previously unpublished
papers, presented either orally or as a poster. Contributions are sought
on any aspect of computer vision, image processing or pattern recognition,
including but not restricted to the following topics:
2D/3D Scene analysis
Applications - biomedical, robotic, surveillance, inspection,
Biological & Psychological aspects of Vision
Calibration & Rectification (Mosaicing)
Document Processing & Handwriting Recognition (OCR)
Face Detection & Recognition
Gesture Detection & Recognition
Graphics Recognition/Engineering Drawings
Human Activity Recognition
Image/Video Databases (multi-media, image/video retrieval)
Image Segmentation & Classification
Industrial applications (manufacturing)
Learning & Classification methods
Motion Analysis (optical flow, structure from motion,
Neural Nets for Vision & Image Understanding
Performance Evaluation Techniques
Video Processing (motion, segmentation, registration)
The conference provides an excellent environment for interdisciplinary
interaction as well as for networking of students and scientists in computer
vision and image understanding.
In addition to regular sessions, there will be also invited
sessions and an industry session.
Two awards: for the best paper and for the best student
paper, will be presented.
For a single registration fee participants
can attend presentations at either of AI/GI/VI conferences.
