Description

VISAPP is co-organized by INSTICC - Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication and CVC - Computer Vision Center.


SCOPE

The Second International Conference on Computer Vision Theory and Applications (VISAPP) aims at becoming a major point of contact between research scientists, engineers and practitioners on the area of computer vision applications systems. Four simultaneous tracks will be held, covering all different aspects related to computer vision, from Image Formation to Image Understanding including Motion Analysis and Stereo Vision.
Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged.
Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the Proceedings of VISAPP. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions.
Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as technical tutorials, dedicated to technical/scientific topics, are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in lecturing a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

VISAPP 2007 will have several invited keynote speakers, who are internationally recognized experts in their areas. Their names are not yet confirmed.


VENUE

The conference will be held in Barceló Hotel Sants. The Barceló Hotel Sants is a deluxe hotel located in the heart of Barcelona. It stays about 15 minutes from the airport, 4 minutes to Plaza de Catalunya and 500 meters to the Fira de Barcelona. Considering the hotel is exactly above the train station, it allows traveling to anyplace. Most important is the fact that all the noise from the train station is undetected because the hotel is soundproofed. The Barcelo Hotel Sants also offers on site dining and is convenient to many shopping and entertainment venues.


PAPER SUBMISSION

Authors should submit a paper in English of up to 8 A4 pages, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, using the submission procedure indicated below.
The guidelines for paper formatting provided at the conference web site must be strictly used for all submitted papers.
The submission format is the same as the camera-ready format. Please check and carefully follow the instructions and templates provided.
The program committee will review all papers and the contact author (the author who submited the paper) of each paper will be notified of the result, by e-mail.
Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable.

Submission procedure:
A "double-blind" paper evaluation method will be used. To facilitate that, the authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the full paper, WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors. The manuscript must contain, in its first page, the paper title, an abstract and a list of keywords but NO NAMES OR CONTACT DETAILS WHATSOEVER are to be included in any part of this file. The file to be uploaded must be a zip containing two files: author(s) information in one and the paper, without any author(s) information, in another. LaTeX/PS/PDF/DOC format are accepted.
The web submission facility automatically sends an acknowledgement, by e-mail, to the contact author. Please contact the secretariat if no acknowledgement is received.

If the author is unable to use the web-based procedure then he/she can send the paper by e-mail to the secretariat attaching an additional file containing: the title, author(s), affiliation(s), contact details, a list of keywords and an abstract. Authors must also indicate the conference area (including the topics), to which the paper is submitted.


PROCEEDINGS AND BOOK PUBLICATION

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, in paper and in CD-ROM support. A book including a selection of the best conference papers will be edited and published by Springer.
