29th British Machine Vision Conference Call for Papers

BMVC2018 Call for papers

29th British Machine Vision Conference
3-6 September 2018, Newcastle, UK
Contact: He Wang 

The British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC) is the British Machine
Vision Association (BMVA) annual conference on machine vision,
image processing, and pattern recognition. It is one of the major
international conferences on computer vision and related areas held
in the UK. As its increasing popularity and quality, it has established
itself as a prestigious event on the vision calendar.

There have been 28 successful BMVC since 1985. They were organized in
many major universities in the UK, such as Cambridge (1987), Oxford (1990),
Birmingham (1995), UEA (2003), Edinburgh (2006), Leeds (2008) and
Imperial College London (2017).

The scale of the conference has increased significantly in the past decade.
In particular, the 2017 conference attracted 450 attendants and 635
full paper submissions, which was a record high. 188 high-quality
research papers were accepted, in which around one-third of the works
came from Europe, one-third from Asia and one-third from North America.
Apart from international researchers, the conference also attracted a
wide spectrum of international companies, which sponsored the conference
and demonstrated their products at the conference. This year, BMVC will
be held in Northumbria University at Newcastle Upon Tyne. Based on the
secured industrial support so far, the success of BMVC is assured.

Authors are invited to submit full-length high-quality papers in image
processing and machine vision. Papers covering theory and/or application
areas of computer vision are invited for submission. Submitted papers
will be refereed on their originality, presentation, empirical results,
and quality of evaluation. All papers will be reviewed *doubly blind*,
normally by three members of our international programme committee.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

* Statistics and machine learning for vision
* Stereo, calibration, geometric modelling and processing
* Face and gesture recognition
* Early and biologically inspired vision
* Motion, flow and tracking
* Segmentation and grouping
* Model-based vision
* Image processing techniques and methods
* Texture, shape and colour
* Video analysis
* Document processing and recognition
* Vision for quality assurance, medical diagnosis, etc.
* Vision for visualization, interaction, and graphics
* Object detection and recognition
* Shape-from-X
* Video analysis for action and event recognition
* Illumination and reflectance
* Deep learning for vision
* 3D computer vision
* RGBD analysis

Accepted papers will be included the conference proceedings published
and DOI indexed by BMVA.
