Greetings to all the TC10 members from your new TC10 chairman. It is a
tall order to step into Karl Tombre's shoes. Karl did an excellent job
as the previous chairman. I will do my best to live up to the
standards set by him.

First, a reminder for the approaching submission deadline for
ICDAR'97. I have included a copy of the CFP from an earlier TC10
mailing (TC10 news #34). The full version is available at
http://wwwicdar97.dbag.ulm.daimlerbenz.com/
This is followed by several other reminders and CFP's.

The new WWW home page for TC10 is at
http://www.iapr-tc10.or.kr/
Please add this to your bookmarks. For now, most of the links in this
page point to Karl Tombre's web pages. I will gradually move the
information onto our local server. Over time, I will add more
information to this web page. E.g., I will soon provide a list of
graphics recognition companies on the web. I will add a conference
calendar. Also, I will make available information and data for the
past and the next graphics recognition contests. I would welcome any
other suggestions.

I am sorry for the delay in resuming the TC10 news. From now on, I
will send out the news approximately once a month.

I look forward to serving the Graphics Recognition community.

Integrating Photogrammetric Techniques With
Scene Analysis and Machine Vision III



Conference Chairs: David M. McKeown, Jr., Carnegie Mellon Univ.
J. Chris McGlone, Carnegie Mellon Univ.
Olivier Jamet, Institut Geographique National, France

Program Committee: Ian Dowman, University College London
Christian Heipke, Technical University Munich
Edward M. Mikhail, Purdue University

This conference, the third in a series, has been a focal point for
papers describing basic research or advanced system applications of
digital photogrammetry applied to problems in automated mapping,
analysis of remotely sensed imagery, and feature extraction for spatial
database generation and update. As such we solicit papers in the
following areas:

(1) Use of photogrammetry in computer vision algorithms for object
recognition, modeling, and scene analysis including:
o use of photogrammetric information to guide computer vision
algorithms
o use of high quality geometric information and invariants
o precision and accuracy of derived points, features, and
models
o managing uncertainty in derived object models

(2) Use of computer vision for typical photogrammetric problems:
o interior orientation
o tie point selection
o control point identification and measurement
o calibration

(3) Automated mapping applications including:
o terrain modeling
o automated image-scene registration
o cartographic feature extraction of manmade structures
o understanding and utilization of existing maps, databases,
imagery
o surface cover description and characterization
o cartographic change detection
o applications to forestry, land use, environmental monitoring
o rapid construction of virtual world databases for simulation
and planning

(4) Computer vision and multisensor fusion using explicit
photogrammetric models of non-traditional sensors:
o airborne multispectral / hyperspectral scanners
o imaging radar
o FLIR, IR

(5) Design issues for advanced automated analysis systems including:
o effects of image handling, resampling, compression
and softcopy stereo display on measurement precision
o the utility of automation vs. operator interaction
o innovative techniques for output verification, correction,
and editing.

(6) GIS issues in digital photogrammetry including:
o utilization of existing map products and their automated
update
o types of derived products such as thematic maps, 3D
visualization, temporal visualization
o maintenance of spatial data over time

As in previous conferences approximately 25 minutes will be allocated
for paper presentation with 5 minutes reserved for questions and
discussion. Paper submissions for review should be approximately 15
pages long, single spaced using a 12 point font. 500 to 1000-word
extended abstracts may be submitted for review and should convey the
technical approach and results of the research. Indicate regular
session or poster presentation preference. Preference for regular
session presentations will be given to full paper submissions. A small
number of invited papers will be solicited.

Please send (3) copies of full papers or extended abstracts by October
28, 1996 to:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Acquiring spatial data for Geoinformationsystems today still is mainly done
by human operators who analyze images using classical photogrammetric
equipment or digitize maps, possibly assisted by some low level image
processing. Automation of these tasks is difficult due to the complexity of
the object, the topography, and the deficiency of current pattern
recognition and image analysis tools for achieving a reliable transition
from the data to the high level description of topographic objects. It
appears that progress in automation only can be achieved by incorporating
domain specific semantic models into the analysis procedures.

The workshop wants to bring together specialists in image analysis, digital
photogrammetry and cartography to discuss the current state of automatic
procedures for acquiring topographic information from images and maps. The
goal is to find out common object models and analysis strategies.

The following topics are of major concern:

* Semantic models for topographic objects
* Iconic, structural and semantic hierarchies
* Semantic cartographic generalization
* Appearance models for topographic objects
* Process control by scene specific models
* Interaction between low and high level analysis
* Domain specific grouping
* Observability of topographic objects
* Representation and use of uncertainty
* Learning structural and semantic models
* Modeling user interaction in scene analysis

The workshop will consist of oral and poster presentations and will provide
time for software demonstrations.

Please submit papers containing original work on one or several of the above
mentioned topics (max. 25 pages, 12pt, double spaced, including figures
tables and references). The papers will be reviewed double blind. Please
provide us with four copies, each of which should contain two title pages,
one including the title, the authors names, their affiliation, e-mail
addresses, an abstract (max. 150 words) and keywords, the other of the two
pages only containing title, abstract and keywords.

In addition each paper should contain a summary page that answers the
following questions:

1. What role does semantic modeling play in your work?
2. What is the primary significance of the work?
3. How is the paper related to previously published work?
4. How can other researchers make use of the work?

Submissions received past the deadline risk rejection
without further consideration. Authors will be notified of acceptance
or rejection by February~19, 1997. A full version of each accepted
contribution in final form will be due by March 19, 1997, for
inclusion in the proceedings. There will be joint proceedings,
which will be distributed at the
Symposium and will be subsequently available for purchase from ACM. A
selection of accepted papers will be invited to special issues of
journals.

Papers must present original research. An extended abstract
should begin with a succinct statement of the problems/goals of the
paper, the main results, and the significance of the work in the
context of previous research. It should provide sufficient detail to
allow the program committee to evaluate the validity, quality, and
relevance of the contribution. The entire extended
abstract should not exceed 10 double-spaced pages. An optional
appendix may be included, but this will be used at the program
committee's discretion.


Communications are limited to three pages and will be published in
a separate section of the proceedings.
They are meant for
reports on experimental results, on experiences with applications of
computational geometry in real-world situations and other practical
issues that are relevant to computational geometry, as well as for
short notes of an algorithmic or combinatorial nature.
They
will be presented as posters (possibly with implementation demos) at
the conference.
