11th Int. Conf. on Energy Minimization Methods in Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Call for Papers

Call for Papers : EMMCVPR 2017

11th Int. Conf. on 
Energy Minimization Methods in Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition
30 October - 1 November 2017 
Venice, Italy

Energy minimization methods have become an established computational
paradigm in computer vision and pattern recognition. EMMCVPR is a 
regular bi-annual conference dedicated to advancing the state of 
the art in this field.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the foundation of the conference
series, with the inaugural meeting having taken place in Venice in 1997,
and we will celebrate it by bringing it back to Venice.

The conference will be co-located with ICCV 2017, the International Conference
 on Computer Vision. (22 Oct 2017 - 29 Oct 2017)

As with the previous editions, the proceedings will be published by
Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. 
The scientific program will include the presentation of invited plenary
talks and contributed research papers.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to: 

  Discrete and continuous optimization
  Convex programming and relaxations
  PDE and variational methods
  Stochastic optimization
  Spectral methods
  Graphical models and markov random fields
  Statistical methods and learning
  Graph-theoretic .and network-based .methods
  Analysis of deep architectures
  Adversarial and game-theoretic models

  Object Recognition and Detection
  Scene Understanding
  Segmentation and Grouping
  Restoration and Inpainting
  Color and Texture
  Computational Photography
  Photo and Video Editing
  Motion and Tracking
  Matching and Registration
  Medical Image Analysis
  Pose Estimation
  Action and Event Recognition
  Shape Analysis
  Stereo and 3D Reconstruction
  Multiview Geometry
  Vision for Graphics



Submission: 10 August 2017
Notifications: 15 September 2017
Conference: 30 October - 1 November 2017
Camera ready due: 1 December 2017



All papers (not exceeding 14 pages) must be submitted electronically at 
the EasyChair conference website. All submissions will be subject to a 
rigorous peer-review process. Accepted papers will appear in the conference
proceedings, which will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) series. after the conference. In preparing your paper use 
Springer's Latex2e document style, see Information for LNCS Authors.




The conference will take place in the magnificent setting of 
Palazzo Franchetti.
