5th International Conference on Computer Vision Theory and Applications (VISAPP) Venue: Angers-France Event Date: 17-21 May, 2010 The 5th 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. The conference program will include a number of Keynote Lectures to be delivered by distinguished world-class researchers. The list of currently confirmed invited speakers can be found at the conference web site (http://www.visigrapp.org/Keynote_Speakers.htm). Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and CD-ROM support. The proceedings will be indexed by several major international indexers, including INSPEC, DBLP and Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index, and we are awaiting the confirmation of indexation by EI. Additionaly, a selection of the best papers of the conference will be published in a book, by Springer-Verlag. Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference. All accepted papers will be also published in the INSTICC's Digital Library, which will be made available shortly. Workshops and special sessions are also invited. If you wish to propose a workshop or a special session, for example based on the results of a specific research project, please send a proposal to the VISAPP secretariat. Workshop chairs and Special Session chairs will benefit from logistics support and other types of support, including secretariat and financial support, to facilitate the development of a valid idea. ************************************************************************* KEYNOTE LECTURES - Ali Mohammad-Djafari, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), France - Brian A.
