Advanced Concepts for Intelligent Vision Systems Call for Papers

   ACIVS 2017 - Lecture Notes in Computer Science
   Advanced Concepts for Intelligent Vision Systems
   Sept. 18-21, 2017
   The Grauwzusters Cloister, Antwerp, Belgium


   Acivs 2017 is a conference focusing on techniques for building adaptive,
   intelligent, safe and secure imaging systems. Acivs 2017 consists of four
   days of lecture sessions, both regular (25 minutes) and invited
   presentations, and poster sessions. The proceedings of Acivs 2017 will be
   published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series
   and are listed in the ISI proceedings index.

   A selection of authors with high quality papers in Acivs 2017 will be
   invited to submit an extended version of their paper to a special issue
   in the

       Integrated Computer-Aided Engineering journal,
   which currently has an
       IMPACT factor of 4.9.

   The submitted journal paper must have at least 1/3 of new or changed content.

   Acivs 2017 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 350 €
   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.

                            Best student paper award

   Thanks to sponsorship by LNCS, Acivs 2017 will feature a best student
   paper award with a cash prize. Details will be announced later.

                                Invited speakers

   Acivs 2017 will feature a number of invited talks which will be announced

                               Conference topics

   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 and other types of images
       and videos; including applications like remote sensing and medical
     * Image and Video Analysis: segmentation, computational photography,
       tracking, pattern analysis, computer vision, early and biologically
       inspired vision, information geometry, image and video databases,
       search and retrieval, multimodality, authentication and watermarking;
       including applications like events supervision, surveillance
       applications, biometrics and forensics, robotics.
     * Image and Video Coding: coding, quality metrics, image and video
       protection; including applications like multimedia applications,
       mobile imaging, augmented reality.

   Both classical research papers and application papers are welcome.


   The conference will take place in Building S, The Grauwzusters
   Cloister, Antwerp, Belgium on Sept. 18-21, 2017.

                      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 2017

   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 2017 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 2017 will be published by Springer in the
   Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. LNCS is published, in
   parallel to the printed books, in full-text electronic form via Springer's
   internet platform (
