Acivs 2015 -

Advanced Concepts for Intelligent Vision Systems

Oct. 26-29, 2015
Museo Diocesano, Catania, Italy

*** Deadline extended to May 22. ***


    Acivs 2015 is a conference focusing on techniques for building adaptive,
   intelligent, safe and secure imaging systems. Acivs 2015 consists of four
   days of lecture sessions, both regular (25 mns) and invited presentations,
   and poster sessions. The proceedings of Acivs 2015 will be published by
   Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (approval
   pending) and are listed in the ISI proceedings index.

   Acivs 2015 will also feature a conference dinner, and other social
   activities. The social activities will be detailed later.

   The conference fee includes the social program (conference dinner, opening
   reception, and cultural activities), coffee breaks, daily lunches and a
   copy of the proceedings. The registration fees (including VAT) are 300 €
   for students, 500 € for IEEE members and 550 € for all other

   In case one presenter presents multiple papers at the conference, one
   registration fee suffices. However an additional fee of 200 € will be
   charged for each additional paper.

          Special session on large scale video processing and analysis

   Computer vision and video processing have entered a new era in which the
   focus changes from the individual camera as an acquisition device to
   interconnected systems featuring many devices with distributed processing,
   large data rates, ever increasing spatial and temporal resolution and
   multiple imaging modalities.

   The recent surge in European projects (Panorama, Copcams, Exist, Image
   Capture of the Future....) illustrates not only a high level of research
   activity in this area but also a strong interest from industry. The goal
   of the special session is to liase between these actors, especially those
   involved in projects like these.

   The special session will feature invited speakers from both industry and
   academia. Relevant regular papers, subjected to the regular peer review
   system, will also be considered.

                                Invited speakers

   Acivs 2015 will feature a number of invited talks, which will be announced

               Conference topics include (but are not limited to)

   Papers must show original and high-quality work, from basic research to
   pre-industrial application. Topics of interest include, but are not
   limited to:

     * Image and Video Processing: preprocessing (scanning, sampling,
       quantization, …), compressed sensing, filtering, restoration and
       enhancement, color processing; including applications like
       multi-camera systems and sensor networks.
     * Multidimensional image processing: optical, infrared, radar, sonar,
       polarimetric, multispectral, hyperspectral, ultraspectral and other
       types of images and videos; including applications like remote sensing
       and medical applications.
     * Image and video analysis: segmentation, computational photography,
       tracking, pattern analysis, computer vision, information geometry,
       image and video databases, search and retrieval, multimodality,
       authentication and watermarking; including applications like events
       supervision, surveillance applications, biometrics and forensics,
     * Image and Video Coding: coding, quality metrics, image and video
       protection; including applications like multimedia applications,
       mobile imaging, augmented reality, WWW.

   Both classical research papers and application papers are welcome.


   The conference will take place in the Museo Diocesano, Catania, Italy on
   Oct. 26-29, 2015.

                      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 2015

   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 2015 website
   ( 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. Duplicate
   submissions to other conferences, or modified copies of earlier papers are
   not acceptable.

   Submission implies the authors have obtained all IP clearance from their
   employers, eg. the submitted material contains nothing that is

                             Conference proceedings

   The proceedings of Acivs 2015 will be published by Springer in the
   Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (approval pending). LNCS is
   published, in parallel to the printed books, in full-text electronic form
   via Springer's internet platform (
