Newsletter 16

Hello everybody,

Since last mailing, I got so many new information that I have to send
out this new TC10 news.

First, I found recently in the Usenet news the announcement of an
interesting session at the Association of American Geographer's 1995
Meeting. This is directly related to TC10's interests:

>Date: 8 Jun 1994 14:26:36 GMT
>Organization: Boston University
>Keywords: Call for papers, AAG 1995, Chicago

The Association of American Geographers' 1995 Meeting will
take place in Chicago, IL, USA on March 14-18th, 1995. As
chair of the session, "Automatic Map Input Systems, Problems and
Prospects", I will be organizing the session.

If you are interested in giving a paper and believe that your paper fits
into this session, please send me an email with a brief abstract.

The topics will include all issues involved in automatic map input, namely,
image scanning, raster to vector conversion, image thinning, image
thresholding and segmentation, map text recognition, color layer
separation, system development and design, etc.

Deadline for Program Participation Forms (Abstracts, Sessions, and Fees)
is September 1st, 1994.

Second, I posted some time ago the call for papers for the French
national symposium on document analysis (CNED'94). The final program
is now out; as it is in French I will only post the headlines of the
sessions; a full program in available on request for those who read
French and are interested.

-----------------------------------------
Finally, although this is more marginal for our TC10 community, I
thought it might be interesting for some of you at least to know about
this new international conference:
-----------------------------------------

First International Conference on
Computer Vision, Virtual Reality and Robotics in Medicine
CVRMed'95
April 3-5, 1995
Nice, FRANCE

OBJECTIVES
------------

The purpose of this first international conference is to present and
publish the most innovative and promising research work in computer
vision, virtual reality and robotics applied to medical problems:
1) to help diagnosis from multidimensional and multimodal images and
2) to assist therapy, especially in video surgery, interventional
radiology, and radiotherapy.

This domain has undergone a tremendous increase over the past few
years and will be a revolution for medicine in the coming decade.

This event follows a successful preliminary AAAI symposium
organized in March 1994 at Stanford by N. Ayache (INRIA),
E. Grimson (MIT), T. Kanade (CMU), R. Kikinis and S. Wells (chair)
(both at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital).

The topics addressed by this conference will include:

Therapy planning, simulation and control:
-----------------------------------------
.virtual and augmented reality applied to therapy control
.virtual patients for surgical training
.telepresence in medicine, telesurgery
.image guided medical robotics
.image guided therapy
.using electronic anatomical atlases
.virtual reality for rehabilitation

Registration problems in medicine:
----------------------------------
.3D localization of patients or surgical tools
.on line tracking of patient or organ motion
.nonrigid matching in medical images
.registration of mono or multimodal medical images
.registration with electronic anatomical atlases

Medical image understanding:
-----------------------------
.differential geometry and multidimensional images
.motion, shape and texture analysis in medical images
.building and using physical deformable models
.segmentation of multidimensional medical images
.spectral analysis in medical images
.detecting measuring pathological evolution
.building electronic anatomical atlases
.statistical analysis of anatomical features
.representation of pictorial anatomical knowledge

PAPER SUBMISSION
------------------
Four copies of complete manuscript should be received by
Friday September 23, 1994, at the address:

Dr. Nicholas AYACHE
CVRMed'95 - INRIA
2004 Route des Lucioles - B.P.93
06902 Sophia-Antipolis Cedex - France

Papers should include:
----------------------
a) A title page including the names and addresses of the authors
(with e-mail), an abstract of up to 200 words, and one or
more categories as listed above or other keywords.

b) A single page clearly answering the following questions:
1. What is the original contribution of this work?
2. Why should this contribution be considered important?
3. What is the most closely related work by others and how
does this work differ?
4. How can other researchers make use of the results of this work?
5. If this work extends or relates closely to some other work you
have published, please state precisely how it differs from
that work?
6. If any part of this work has been submitted to other conferences
or workshops, please state where and how it is different?

c) a paper, limited to 18 double space pages (12 points) including
figures and references, with a maximum of 7000 words.

Language policy:
----------------
Papers will be written in English. The organization will provide a
French translation of the abstracts. Oral communications will be done
in English. However, follow-up questions and discussions may be held
in both languages.

SCIENTIFIC ORGANIZATION
-------------------------
G. MALANDAIN and Epidaure Group (INRIA, France)

PRACTICAL ORGANIZATION
------------------------
The conference will take place at Hotel Meridien in Nice, France, at
a prestigious address: 1, Promenade des Anglais (the heart of the
French Riviera, right in front of the mediterranean sea!) from April
3 to 5, 1995.

The conference will be followed, on April 6, by a technical tour in
Sophia-Antipolis, to visit the computer vision, graphics and robotics
laboratories of INRIA (120 scientists).

The meeting will be composed of a single track of oral presentations
(long and short) with a number of poster sessions.

The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer-
Verlag in the series "Lecture Notes in Computer Science".

We plan to have a selection of the best papers to appear in a dedicated
book or a special issue of a journal.

LOCAL ORGANIZATION
