Second IAPR Workshop on Graphics Recognition (GREC'97)
Nancy, France
August 22-23, 1997

GRAPHICS RECOGNITION CONTEST

This contest is the second in the series that started with the Dashed
Line Detection Contest held in conjunction with GREC'95 [1,2,3]. The
proposed contest will test the participants' ability to segment text
from graphics and to recognize graphical primitives such as lines,
arcs, circles, and arrowheads. The specifications and the evaluation
protocol for the contest will be intentionally kept simple in order to
encourage participation.

All prospective participants must respond to this announcement by
contacting the contest chair indicating their intent to take part in
the contest (please see the instructions for prospective participants
at the end of this message).

As in the previous contest, select participants may be invited to
submit an article on their system and algorithms for the post workshop
book.

contest. These images will include a mix of synthetic and real images.

FTP access will be made available at the contest to assist
participants in downloading their software via the internet. However,
participants are strongly urged to still bring a copy of their
software on tapes or diskettes.

Evaluation
**********

Programs will be judged on the basis of the following performance metrics :

o Ability to extract text strings from mixed text and graphics where
the text could be

+ sparse or dense
+ isolated or touching/overlapping graphics

Characters within text strings could be isolated or touching.
No OCR is required. Only the bounding boxes of detected text
strings need to be provided to the evaluation software.
Fairly loose error tolerance will be allowed in these
bounding boxes.

All text will be horizontal or vertical.

o Detect the following graphical primitives

+ lines
+ arcs
+ circles
+ arrowheads

The lines, arcs, and circles could be solid or dashed (only simple
dash dash pattern will be used). The arrowheads could be hollow or
filled.

o The following attributes of each graphical primitive must be
identified

+ line: start point, end point, thickness, solid or dashed
+ arc: center, radius, start angle, end angle (start and end angles
must be in counter-clockwise order), solid or dashed
+ circle: center, radius, solid or dashed
+ arrowheads: tip, direction, hollow or filled

For lines that intersect each other, line segments created by the
intersections should be reported as separate lines.

For the above coordinates, the x-y coordinate system must have its
origin at the bottom left-hand corner of the image with the y axis
pointing upward and the x axis pointing to the right.

The units of the x and y coordinates should be in pixels.

NOTE : The exact evaluation methods are not yet complete and will be
posted as soon as they are ready.

> Subject: CFP: Fusion Of Earth Data


FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS


The European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL)
Societe des Electriciens et Electroniciens de France (SEE)
Ecole des Mines de Paris

cordially invite you to the second Conference

FUSION OF EARTH DATA:
merging point measurements, raster maps and remotely sensed images

to be held in
Cote d'Azur (France)

26-31 January 1998.

The quantity of data available for the study of the environment, the geosphere
and the biosphere has grown very rapidly over the past few years, partly due
to the number of space missions devoted to the observation of the Earth.
Facing this ever increasing amount of data, researchers as well as engineers
need to extract the best information of them. Data fusion techniques are of
paramount importance for an optimal exploitation of the synergy of these data.

Such techniques have been recently introduced. They are mostly misunderstood
by the user community, in part because their mathematical aspects are often
emphasized in place of the practical applications. It is indeed a rich and
fascinating area of multidisciplinary investigation which deserves a better
comprehension from the remote sensing and geography community.


GOALS OF THE CONFERENCE

The Conference is conceived as a forum for researchers, engineers and students
at PhD level using and studying data originating from different sensors, and
scientists working on various aspects of data/image fusion. The first
conference, held in 1996, has lead to the creation of a Special Interest Group
within EARSeL, enhancing the exchange of information between the members and a
better understanding of fundamentals and tools. Such a conference intends to
help in understanding what does "data fusion" means by providing clear
description of applications, tools and benefits of data fusion. The organizing
bodies are determined to respect high standards for this technical conference;
the presentations will represent the latest methodologies and the status of
applications.

COMMUNICATIONS

Keynote speakers will present the general aspects of data fusion illustrated
by peculiar applications. The organisers will welcome papers describing recent
and original work. They will favour papers which contain the three following
aspects:
- description of the application needs with respect to multi-sensor data,
- description of the fusion techniques used,
- assessment of the quality of the results and of the benefit of the data
fusion.

Submit 5 copies of the abstract (no more than two A4 pages), enhancing the
above-mentioned aspects, before 30 June 1997. The abstract should also include
name of authors, address, phone, fax and e-mail.

Proposals may be in the following domains:

- advanced mathematical tools in data fusion, including change in data quality
in fusion process and management of data uncertainty,
- meta-data and fusion,
- integration / supplementing ground measurement network by space measurements,
- fusion in oceanography from space
- fusion in natural hazards and global change,
- fusion for computer-aided photo-interpretation,
- and others ?

LOCATION AND ACCOMMODATIONS

French Cote d'Azur is characterized by its beautiful landscape. In winter, the
sky is often deep blue with a high visibility. Such a light offers a wonderful
contrast between the quiet blue-green Mediterranean Sea and the close snowy
Alps mountains. The weather is often dry and comfortable. This is a
destination well worth visiting at that time of the year.

Beginning in the 1970's, a part of Cote d'Azur north of Antibes and Cannes
evolved into Sophia Antipolis, a famous name in the world for research and
high technology. Also in Cannes is Aerospatiale, the leading european
satellite maker. The Conference will benefit from this high-tech neighborhood.


THEMATIC SESSIONS

There will be several thematic sessions on topics selected from advance
proposals. These sessions provide a means to discuss more extensively peculiar
subjects. Authors of accepted proposals will serve as session chairman.

IEEE WORKSHOP ON CONTENT-BASED ACCESS OF
IMAGE AND VIDEO LIBRARIES

(In Conjunction with CVPR'97)

Puerto Rico
June 20, 1997

General Chair:
Rosalind W. Picard, MIT Media Lab

Organizing Committee:
Fang Liu, chair; Glenn Healey, Michael Swain, Ramin Zabih

Program Committee:
Ingemar Cox, Dick Delanoy, David Forsyth, Anil Jain, Ramesh Jain,

Rohini Srihari, Carlo Tomasi, HongJiang Zhang


The purpose of this workshop is to promote information exchange and
interaction among researchers who are interested in various aspects of
accessing the content of image and video libraries.

Research in computer vision and pattern recognition is needed to
provide tools which give users access to the content of the libraries.
This includes the problems of ORGANIZING, REPRESENTING, QUERYING,
RETRIEVING, ANNOTATING, and BROWSING large collections of video and
image data. The domain of video and image libraries also restates the
typical automatic recognition problem as a semi-automatic problem,
that of assisting and incorporating human users in the system loop.

NEW REPRESENTATIONS are needed to assist users in interacting with
large amounts of visual data, especially for video, which presents the
challenging problems which arise in demarcating events or actions of
interest.

Research is needed to exploit the PRESENCE OF THE USER, such as
obtaining incremental specifications for a query and using user
feedback to combine semantic, perceptual, and other criteria in
evaluating the results of a query.

A research emphasis is needed on INCORPORATING MULTIPLE MODELS,
especially the ones for shape, color, texture, geometry, and syntax,
so that the user does not have to specify low-level model parameters
and combinations.

When databases and types of queries can be well-specified in advance,
then strategies of EFFICIENT INDEXING of visual information are
needed, in addition to techniques for combining visual with more
traditional database information to respond to queries.

Realistic EVALUATION CRITERIA are needed, including test
databases of realistic size in domains of interest, and measures of
similarity that allow variations in perceptual, semantic, and other
criteria and including measures of accuracy and efficiency in
assisting the user.

The workshop will be held on 20 June, the day after CVPR'97. Hotel
rates for CVPR'97 have been extended. Papers submitted will be
reviewed by the program committee. A proceedings will be made
available a few months after the workshop.

Submissions should be 5-8 pages in the format of final papers for CVPR
proceedings, including figures and references. There should not be
substantial duplication between papers submitted to the workshop and
those accepted at the main conference. Send four copies of the paper
and a cover sheet stating the (1) paper title, (2) Brief (2-3
sentence) summary of the topic and contribution, (3) contact author's
name, (4) address, (5) telephone number, (6) Fax number, and (7)

> Subject: CFP: ISPRS WG on Surface Reconstruction - Call for Participation

International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing

COMMISSION III: Theory and Algorithms, 1996 -- 2000

Working Group III/2 -- Algorithms for Surface Reconstruction

Newsletter no. 1: Invitation to join the group


Dear colleague,

With this letter we would like to present the objectives of the
working group and to inform you about the planned activities.

The main field of interest of the WG is developing and evaluating
algorithms for automatic surface reconstruction. Automatic surface
reconstruction has been the constant focus of scientific research in
the last few decades due to its great significance for numerous
practical applications. Nevertheless, the algorithms developed until
now are still not fully successful because of the complexity of the
problem; the issue will undoubtedly continue to challenge researches
in years to come.

Previous research experience shows that the most promising approach
for developing reliable surface reconstruction algorithms lies in
integrating different cues (such as stereo, shading, texture) from
multiple data sources (imagery, radar data, range data, GIS).
Reliability of algorithms is an issue of great importance; therefore,
research activity should also concentrate on developing methods for
automatic verification and quality control of reconstructed surfaces.
Thus, the subject provides a wide range of research activities to be
undertaken in different, interrelated fields such as remote sensing,
computer vision, and digital photogrammetry, to name a few.

The main objective of the WG is to coordinate the efforts of
researchers and developers from different fields related to automatic
surface reconstruction and to provide an efficient frame for
exchanging ideas, information, and experiences. We see the surface
reconstruction subject as part of an extended object reconstruction
and modeling task. In addition, theoretical ideas should be also
influenced by practical considerations, originated in and software
implementations.

Following these objectives, our planned activities include organizing
thematic workshops (the first is already planned for next fall), in
close cooperation with the other related ISPRS working groups (e.g.,
III/3 and II/8). We also intend to collect and prepare test datasets
that will provide a uniform basis for performance evaluation of
different surface reconstruction and quality control algorithms.

Seeing your participation in the WG activities as one of the key
components of its successful work, we invite you to join the group by
sending us the attached form. This can be done by e-mail (preferred),
fax or regular mail. In the following, we present the terms of
reference and the list of planned activities. When you join the WG,
you will receive further information and updates about the WG
activities. You are also invited to visit our homepage.

Please fill free to pass this letter to other colleagues who may be

INVITATION
**********

WebNet 97 -- The second World Conference of the WWW, Internet, and Intranet
is an international conference, organized by the Association for the
Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE) in cooperation WWW/Internet
businesses & industry.

This annual conference serves as a multi-disciplinary forum for the
exchange of information on the development, applications, and research on
all topics related to the Web. This encompasses the use, applications and
societal and legal aspects of the Internet in its broadest sense.

This conference is a must for all who plan to use the Internet to access
information, communicate or conduct transactions or, who are currently
running or planning to run servers on the Internet.

We invite you to attend the WebNet 97 conference and submit presentations
proposals for papers, panels, tutorials, workshops, demonstrations/posters,
and SIG discussions. All proposals are reviewed for inclusion in the
conference program.

Major Topics include (but are not limited to):
**********************************************
Advances in Multimedia
Application Development Tools
Authoring Tools
Browsing and Navigation Tools
Computer-Human Interface (CHI) Issues
Country Specific Developments
Collaborative Learning and Work
Courseware Development
Data and Link Management
Didactic Issues for Web Presentations
Digital Libraries and Museums
Distance Education
Educational Multimedia
Electronic Commerce
Electronic Publishing and Design
Financial Transactions
Firewalls
Future Issues in Web Technology
Hardware and Software Technologies
Industries and Services
Integration of Web Applications and Services
Interaction and Feedback
International Issues and Developments
JAVA Technology Applications
Legal Issues
Marketing
Mobile Computing
Net-Based Multimedia/Hypermedia Systems
Psychology of Web-Use
Search Engines
Security and Privacy
Social and Cultural Issues
Statistical Tools and User Tracking
Teaching
Teleworking
The Web as Discussion Forum
Virtual Reality
Web Page Design Tools
Web Servers
Web Site Tools


The WebNet Annual Conference Is Unique:
***************************************
First, WebNet takes a more general view of the topic than other WWW
conferences, dealing with a variety of Internet applications, tools,
issues, and research. Attendees are able to focus on the topics which
interest and concern them, not someone else's agenda or primarily vendor
presentations.

The WebNet conference complements existing other events such as the INET
and WWW conferences. The organization of the former is, by definition, more
concerned with providing global Internet services and the latter's
organization is specifically oriented towards one particular system WWW and
its technology.

Second, WebNet is not a trade show. After careful review, presentations
are selected by the Program Committee based upon the value of the content
for attendees. Participants learn what works and does not work from their
peers.

Third, WebNet is a participatory event. While there will be leaders in the
field as speakers, the conference enables participants to meet people and
not just listen to them. Attendees are as important to WebNet as the
formal speakers and, therefore, come to participate.

The WebNet conference series began in 1996 in San Francisco. WebNet 97 is
the second in this series of internationally respected events. WebNet 98 is
expected to be held in Hawaii.
