ICVS contributions available online

The abstracts and full texts of all ICVS contributions are now available online in the open access eCollection repository of Bielefeld University Library. In order to access each paper, please click on the title of the paper that you are interested in on the programme pages. The Digital Object Identifiers for unique referencing of electronic publications may be retrieved from the eCollection repository page of each contribution.



Presenter information updated

In order to facilitate a smooth presentation process, we added some guidelines to the Authors Info page, e.g., about the plenary presentation process and the poster setup. Posters can now be attached and stay at the poster walls from Thursday afternoon until Friday evening, 19:00.
Please have a look at this information and let us know if there are any questions left.



Advance Registration until March 5th

Due to the extended deadlines for some workshops, the ICVS 2007 organization committee has decided to offer an extended time discount in order to allow authors of accepted workshop contributions to take advantage of reduced fees. Advance Registration will be possible until March 5th, 2007. Please have a look at the Registration page for further information.



Submission deadlines for CCMVS/ICVW extended

Due to the number of requests, the organizers of the workshop on Camera Calibration Methods for Computer Vision Systems and the International Cognitive Vision Workshop decided to shift the deadline for abstract and paper submission to February, 8th. Please note, that there won't be any further deadline extensions.



ICVS 2007 supported by SFB 673 / Child care service

ICVS 2007 recieved sponsorship by the CRC (SFB) 673 - Alignment in Communication, a Corporate Research Center at Bielefeld University. The CRC 673 incorporates members of the faculty for linguistics and literature as well as the technical faculty who will focus on researching alignment processes in action and communication.

The organization committee will offer a child care service to participants travelling in company of their children. Please have a look at the Venue page for further information.



Conference Programme available / Early Registration shifted

The initial draft for the conference programme is now available on the Programme page. It features 26 oral presentations in seven thematic sessions and about 40 poster presentations for the main conference. Please note, that the conference registration fee includes participation at the different workshops, e.g., the WCAA 2007 workshop where Prof. Laurent Itti will give a keynote in preface of the main conference sessions on Thursday morning.

Taking into account the shifted result notification, we also shifted the deadline for Early Registration to the date of the Hotel Reservation deadline, which is February, 5th.

Registration for participation is possible via the conference management system



Workshop and conference registration started

WCAA2007 supported by MUSCLE Network of Excellence

The ICVS Workshop on Computational Attention & Applications received sponsorship by the MUSCLE Network of Excellence. With their support, the workshop organizers are happy to announce an invited talk by Prof. Laurent Itti from the University of Southern California to be presented at this workshop.



ICVS deadline extension

Due to the number of requests for deadline extension, the ICVS07 organizing committee decided to shift the paper submission date to November, 20th, 9pm CET. Please note, that there won't be any further deadline extensions.

Announcement of ICVS workshops

Workshop Chair Bärbel Mertsching is glad to announce three new ICVS workshops dealing with Cognitive Vision (ICVW2007, Chair: M. Vincze), Computational Attention & Applications (WCAA2007, F. Stentiford) and From Computational Cognitive Neuroscience to Computer Vision (CCNCV2007, F. Hamker).

Please have a look at the ICVS Workshops page for further details..



Special issue of IVC

ICVS2007's best papers are going to be published in a special issue of Image and Vision Computing. General editor of this issue will be Prof. Dr. K.D.Baker, guest editors will be Prof. Dr. Monique Thonnat, et. al. Details about ICVS2007's publication model can be found on the Authors Info page.

An invited talk will be given by Dr. Christian Goerick, Honda Research Institute Europe GmbH, Germany, on visual learning in the context of the ASIMO humanoid robot. (TBC)



ICVS Best Paper Prize sponsored by IAPR

We are pleased to announce that following the IAPR decision to endorse ICVS07, an IAPR Best Paper Prize will be awarded to recognize the most outstanding ICVS conference contribution in terms of scientific quality and novelty.



Guidelines for workshop proposals available

Instructions on how to propose conference workshops are now available on the Workshops page.



Author information updated / paper submission

The instructions for the preparation of conference contributions have been updated. Authors are encouraged to have a closer look at these guidelines, since paper layout must adhere to them. The link as well as some additional criteria submitted papers should meet can be found on the Authors Info page. Contributions may be submitted electronically via the online paper submission system as of November 15th, 2006.



Workshop organisation started / Workshop Chair: Bärbel Mertsching

We are pleased to announce that Prof. Bärbel Mertsching (University of Paderborn, GET Lab, Germany) agreed to act as the general Workshop Chair for ICVS 2007. Therefore, we would like to invite you to submit proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. Workshops related to any of the conference submission themes or paper topics are welcome. More detailed information will be provided soon. If you already have any questions regarding workshop topics or organisation, please feel free to contact Bärbel Mertsching via mail at: workshops@icvs2007.org



Christian Wöhler confirmed as Exhitibiton Chair

Dr. Christian Wöhler from Daimler Chrysler, Research & Technology agreed to serve as the Exhibition and Industrial Relations chair at the ICVS 2007.

ICVS 2007 announcement

We are glad to announce the 5th International Conference on Computer Vision Systems to be held in 2007 at Bielefeld University, Germany on March 21st-24th continuing a series of successful events in Las Palmas, Spain, Vancouver, Canada, Graz, Austria, and New York, USA.

This conference aims to gather researchers and developers from academic fields and industries worldwide to share their research results covering all aspects of intelligent vision systems. The program committee cordially invites you to attend ICVS 2007 and submit papers on all aspects of intelligent vision systems including, but not limited to:

  • Computer vision from a system perspective: architecture, integration and control
  • Cognitive vision techniques for scene analysis, semantic interpretation and learning
  • Methods and metrics for performance evaluation

A major theme will be vision systems that respond to their environment or interact with in a dynamic and adaptive manner, with an emphasis put on integrated systems that are robust enough to be deployed in largely unconstrained environments. Besides the main conference program, workshops and tutorial will allow practitioners building computer vision systems to exchange knowledge and ideas. Watch out for more information at the ICVS 2007 website and the RSS feed.
