ICVS 2008 Announcement
We are glad to announce that the 6th International Conference on Computer Vision Systems will be held in Santorini, Greece on 12-15 May, 2008. It is the 6th event in a series of successfully ones taken place in Las Palmas, Spain, Vancouver, Canada, Graz, Austria, New York, USA and Bielefeld, Germany.

The conference aims to gather researchers and developers from both academia and industry worldwide and to explore the state of the art in vision systems.
While most computer vision conferences emphasize on work on image processing algorithms, ICVS is unique in concentrating in the systems aspects of computer vision. It aims to relate with practitioners building the computer vision systems and encourages research in this important area.
The program committee cordially invites you to attend ICVS 2008 and submit papers in all aspects of computer vision systems including, but not limited to:

  • Computer vision from a system perspective: paradigms, applications, architectures, integration and control

  • Cognitive vision techniques for recognition and categorization, knowledge representation, learning, reasoning, goal specification and context awareness,

  • Methods and metrics for performance evaluation and benchmarking.
