The proceedings book is going to be published by the Taylor & Francis Group, as happened with VipIMAGE 2007 (ISBN: 9780415457774).
The organizers will encourage the submission of extended versions of the accepted papers to related International Journals; in particular for special issues dedicated to the conference.
One possibility already confirmed is the International Journal for Computational Vision and Biomechanics (IJCV&B).
Following the success of VipIMAGE 2007, the organizers are going to too edit a book to be published by SPRINGER (ISBN: 978-1-4020-9085-1), under the Computational Methods in Applied Sciences series, with invited works from the most important ones presented in the conference.


"best paper award" and "best student paper award" are going to be given to the author(s) of two papers presented at the conference, selected by the Organizing Committee based on the best combined marks from the Scientific Committee and Session Chairs.

Important dates

• Deadline for Thematic Sessions proposals: March 1, 2009 (extended)
