Dear TC10 members and friends,

IWGR and ICDAR are very close now and I think this is the last mailout
before these events. After this interesting period, we will hopefully
have lots of things to report, both about what happened and what is
planned. But let me send out now everything which has accumulated
since last mail.

Before starting the regular mailout, a special announcement to those
of you who are members of the IEEE Computer Society. Our colleague and
friend Theo Pavlidis has been nominated as one of the two candidates
for first vice president of the IEEE Computer Society. The election is
by mail ballot and few people return their ballots (usually 15-20%),
maybe because they most of the time do not know the candidates. But
this time, there is a candidate whom many of us know, and hence you
may have an opinion about this candidate! So maybe this mail will
remind you to vote...

The next ICPR will be held in Vienna in August 1996. Here is the first

Technical University of Vienna, Austria
August 25 - 30, 1996

General Chair: Walter Kropatsch, Technical University of Vienna, Austria
Honorary Chair: Azriel Rosenfeld, University of Maryland, USA
Program Chair: Yiannis Aloimonos, University of Maryland, USA
Program Co-Chair: Ruzena Bajcsy, University of Pennsylvania, USA
Local Organizer: Horst Bischof, Technical University of Vienna, Austria

Contributions are sought on new research in all aspects of the broad field
of Pattern Recognition. The ICPR'96 will consist of four parallel
conferences of previously unpublished contributed papers, delivered either
orally or as a poster, as well as invited papers of general or specific
interest. The program for each individual conference will be organized by
its own Program Committee. The opening session and the social events are
common to all four conference parts. In addition, a set of tutorial
sessions, given by prominent researchers in the field, will be offered
during the day prior to the actual conference (Sunday). Specialized
workshops, organized by technical committees, will be held in the local
surroundings of Vienna during the week before the conference. The results
of these workshops will be reported during the conference. The conference
proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.


Paper submission deadline: January 15th, 1996
Notification of acceptance: April 1996
Camera-ready copy: May 1996

Send six copies of the paper to: 13th ICPR'96, c/o AUSTROPA Interconvention
A- 1043 Vienna, Friedrichstrasse 7, PoB 30,

Papers should not exceed 15 pages (12 pt, 1 1/2 line spacing) and in the
first page they should include the names of the author(s) along with
affiliations and e-mail addresses. In addition to the manuscript the
submission should include a summary page answering the following questions
(please answer each question separately):

(a) What is the original contribution of this work?
(b) What is the most closely related work by others and how does this
work differ?
(c) Which track or tracks and which topics within a track are most
appropriate for the submission? (The Conference is not limited to
these topics and authors may specify that a paper falls in two or
more categories not listed. Categories are used to best match papers
with the expertise of the reviewers.)

Test data will be made available by WWW at
This WWW page provides pointers to data around the world which should
facilitate a comparison of results.
Authors are kindly requested to register before submitting their final paper.

Here is the CFP for a special issue of CVIU:
>From: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (Dimitris Metaxas)
>Subject: Special issue of CVIU



Physics-based techniques have emerged as a major trend in computer
vision and related fields because of their effectiveness in object
representation, image segmentation, shape estimation, motion analysis,
and object recognition, as well as in application areas such as
medical imaging.

Papers are solicited for a special issue of Computer Vision and Image
Understanding on the subject of Physics-Based Modeling and Reasoning
in Computer Vision. The Guest Editors for the special issue are
Dimitri Metaxas of the University of Pennsylvania and Demetri
Terzopoulos of the University of Toronto.

The purpose of the special issue will be to showcase new physics-based
methodologies for the analysis of complex scenes. Of particular
interest is research on the integration of physics-based modeling and
reasoning techniques to improve the results of shape and motion
estimation and object recognition in scenes with multiple objects and
significant occlusion.

All submissions will be refereed in accordance with the CVIU
guidelines. Manuscripts will not be accepted if they have been
previously published, or if they present algorithms that have not been
evaluated on complex scenes. Possible topics for submitted papers
include, but are not limited to

1) physics-based segmentation and shape representation of multiple
objects in complex scenes with occlusion;

2) physics-based motion estimation and object tracking in scenes with
multiple rigid and/or nonrigid objects;

3) integration of physics-based modeling, reasoning and recognition techniques;

4) applications: medical image analysis; analysis and recognition of
faces, gestures, etc.

Please submit four copies of your paper to:

Professor Dimitri Metaxas
Dept. of Computer and Information Science
University of Pennsylvania
200 South 33rd St.
Philadelphia, PA 19104-6389


Deadline for submission of manuscripts: October 30, 1995
First set of reviews to authors: January 30, 1996
Final manuscripts due: April 30, 1996
Publication of special issue: December, 1996

Call for Papers

First International Conference on Visual Information Systems

5-6 February 1996
Melbourne, Victoria

Aims and Scope

With the widespread use of multimedia information, there is a pressing
requirement to efficiently manage, store, manipulate and retrieve images
and pictorial data in a wide spectrum of applications. As many organisations
currently maintain large collections of images, the need for flexible visual
information management is already critical. Future information systems in
commercial and scientific applications will have a high visual content, and
it is necessary to integrate the visual and image components into the
architecture of organisational information systems. Such visual components
will tend to permeate all information systems and in time will not be regarded
as a distinct element, but will form an essential part of any information
system, working alongside and in harmony with structured information
processing components. The conference will focus attention on the management
of visual information and will include, but is not restricted to, the
following topics:

* Architecture of visual information systems
* Data modelling for visual information systems
* Memory organisation and management
* Feature recognition and extraction
* Feature and content indexing
* Picture description and representation languages
* Query model and paradigms for visual information
* Query language for visual information retrieval
* Content-based search and retrieval
* Integration of visual and non-visual information
* Compression and delivery of visual information
* Image processing and manipulation
* Parallel processing in visual information systems
* Specific applications areas of visual information systems

Both work in progress as well as fully developed systems will be of interest
to the conference.

Well, the preliminary programs make a mailing very long... If many of
you are annoyed by the length of this mail, please tell me; maybe a
solution would be to edit out the details in the programs and say
where a full version can be found (you should be able to find all
these CFP and Programs, and others as well, by exploring the pointers
of my WWW home page)... I would then do that the next times...

Looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible in Penn State
and/or in Montreal,

Your TC10 chairman
