Newsletter 20

Dear TC10 members,

ICPR is now very near. So I hope to meet many of you in Jerusalem. I
haven't received yet an answer from the ICPR secretariat about a
possible meeting room for our TC10 meeting, so I think we will have to
organize this meeting "on the fly" in Jerusalem. So look out for
announcements about this meeting, on bulletin boards or other displays
available at the conference.

I have again received several announcements for dissemination, which
are included in this mailout. I have also made a first try at an IAPR
TC10 WWW page, and you can look at the result in

http://www.loria.fr/~tombre/tc10.html

for those who have access to a WWW browser like Mosaic or other
software. You are of course welcome to make comments about this WWW
page and suggest improvements. There is also a pointer to an archive
of TC10 news mailouts available from this WWW page. Please have a
look...

Well, here come the announcements, as usual.

First, with respect to the coming ICPR, a new list of update
information about this conference has been sent out by Shmuel Peleg:

IEEE Workshop on Applications of Computer Vision
Sarasota, Florida * December 5-7, 1994


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

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society
Technical Committee on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence.


WORKSHOP

We are pleased to announce the advance program for the second IEEE
Workshop on Applications of Computer Vision (WACV '94), to be held in
Sarasota, Florida, U.S.A., December 5-7, 1994. Researchers from around
the world will present and discuss diverse applications of computer
vision. In the spirit of the workshop format, we encourage others to
participate and bring related interests of academia, industry, and
government to the discussion.

The workshop is scheduled in morning and evening sessions, leaving
afternoons free to enjoy the beach and other activities of the Sarasota
area. Buffet receptions will accompany the evening sessions, which will
include special events (e.g., panel discussions) as well as papers.

SARASOTA

The workshop hotel is the Holiday Inn on Lido Beach in Sarasota,
Florida. One of the prime attractions is of course the beach. In
addition, the hotel is a two-block walk from St. Armand's Circle, which
provides many fine shopping and dining possibilities. Sports activities
in the area include various water sports, wind surfing, deep sea
fishing, boat rentals, cycling, tennis and golf.

Other attractions in the Sarasota area include the Mote Marine Lab,
Myakka River State Park, Ringling Museum, and Sarasota Jungle Garden.
Other major attractions within driving distance include Disney World,
Epcot, Sea World, Universal Studies (all near Orlando), Busch Gardens
(in Tampa), and the Salvador Dali Museum (in St. Petersburg).

Here is also a Call for Papers for a special issue of IEEE Trans. on
PAMI, on digital libraries, which may be of interest to some of the
members of our TC.

>Subject: CFP, PAMI special issue on digital libraries
>Date: Thu, 8 Sep 94 19:57:02 -0400

CALL FOR PAPERS

Special Issue of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON PATTERN ANALYSIS AND MACHINE
INTELLIGENCE on Digital libraries: Representation and Retrieval

Papers are solicited for a special issue of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON
PATTERN ANALYSIS AND MACHINE INTELLIGENCE which will address the
subject of Digital libraries: Representation and Retrieval. The Guest
Editors for the special issue will be Rosalind W. Picard and Alex P.
Pentland, both of the M.I.T. Media Laboratory, USA.

With the rapid increase in worldwide networks, people will soon have
access to massive libraries of digital text, sound, image, video and
other special-purpose data. The biggest obstacle to this
``information glut'' is that the technology for organizing, querying,
and retrieving data from these multimedia libraries is still in its
infancy.

Research in pattern analysis and machine intelligence is needed to
provide tools for accessing the content of these databases. The
papers in this special issue will describing novel and significant
tools and techniques that facilitate access to the content of large
data collections. Manuscripts will not be accepted if they have been
previously published, or if they describe algorithms that have not
been carefully evaluated on large databases. Possible topics for
papers submitted to the special issue include, but are not limited to:

* Robust recognition and retrieval of classes of information, such as
``find all photos containing trees'' or ``all places where there is
laughter.''

* Search on compressed representations, and new representations that
facilitate efficient semantic or perceptual searching.

* Intelligent searching through huge amounts of text or data, e.g. for
DNA matching or drug design.

* Automatic annotation to generate descriptions of data, especially
based on combinations of visual, acoustic, and motion (temporal)
features.

* Recognition of video content invariant to viewing conditions, e.g.,
``Find all other shots of this scene.''

* Computational measures of perceptual similarity: especially texture,
shape, color, that have been evaluated on a large set of data, e.g.,
``computer, are there any other drum patterns that sound like this?''
or ``find fabrics which look most like this one.''

* Segmentation of video/soundtrack/image as applied to database search
and retrieval.

* Automatic extraction of video keyframes, or analogous summarizing
information in non-visual media.

All papers will be reviewed by the guidelines of the transactions.
Please submit four copies of your paper to:

Prof. Rosalind W. Picard
MIT Media Laboratory, E15-392
20 Ames Street
Cambridge, MA 02139

Schedule:

Deadline for submission of manuscripts: June 30, 1995
First set of reviews to authors: December 1, 1995
Final manuscripts due: March 1, 1996
Publication of special issue: November, 1996

>Subject: A new text book

A more or less complete draft of a text book 'An Introduction to
Machine Vision' is ready. This book can be used as a text book for a
first course on computer vision. The book is likely to appear in
print in early 1995.
This book is coauthored by Ramesh Jain, R. Kasturi, and Brian Schunck
and will be published by McGraw Hill.

If you are interested in using this for a course in this fall, please
send e-mail to Ramesh Jain at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . The current draft is
slightly incomplete, but is satisfactory (according to other people
who plan to use it. If you need it for the winter term, please
contact me in October so that I can send you the final draft.

The only condition for sending the draft is that you provide me with
feedback on how this book can be made more useful to students.

Thanks for your time and attention.
