Dear TC10 members and friends,

Once again, it's time for a new issue of TC10 news. A lot of
information this time again, although it's not the most active period
for our community (at least in terms of announcements, etc.).

I want to remind you that since last mailout, I have decided to
shorten some of the announcements, but to update regularly full
versions of these announcements (and some other info which is not
circulated in this mailing list) on my WWW pages. My general WWW page
is at URL http://www.loria.fr/~tombre/. The TC10 page is at
http://www.loria.fr/~tombre/tc10.html, where you can also find the
archives of this mailing list. There is a list of pointers to
additional information at URL http://www.loria.fr/~tombre/vision.html,
where you can also find the archives of CFPs and advance programs
announced here, and some others which I don't announce here because
they are too far from the scope of interest of this mailing
list. We have definitely come into the era of the web, anyway...

ICDAR'95 was held in August; now we have begun to prepare actively the
next ICDAR, to be held in Ulm (Germany) in 1997. Here comes a CFP.
Information on this conference is also available at URL
http://wwwicdar97.dbag.ulm.daimlerbenz.com/
with a mirror site in America at URL

==================================================================
EP96: Call for papers
==================================================================
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CONFERENCE HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR
SEPTEMBER 1996. THE OTHER DATES HAVE CHANGED ACCORDINGLY.
==================================================================

EP96, the International Conference on Electronic Documents,
Document Manipulation and Document Dissemination will be
held in Palo Alto, California (USA) at the Xerox Palo Alto
Research Center, on September 24-26, 1996. Palo Alto is
approximately 65 kilometers from downtown San Francisco and
40 kilometers from the San Francisco International Airport.

This conference will be the sixth in a series of
international conferences organized to promote the exchange
of novel ideas in the area of computer manipulation of
documents.

The first two conferences in the EP series, EP86 held in
Nottingham, England, and EP88 in Nice, France, concentrated
mainly, on the specific aspects of the production of
documents by computer, from composition to printing. EP90,
which was held in Washington, adopted a broader definition
of the term Computer Assisted Publication, and accordingly,
included more material on new topics such as the
application of data-base techniques to document handling,
hypertext and hypermedia systems, and document recognition
and analysis. EP92, held in Lausanne, Switzerland, confirmed
the trend for documents to impact more and more areas in
computer science. EP94, held in Darmstadt, Germany, focused
explicitly on document representation, transformation,
management and interpretation. EP96 is expected to continue
this trajectory.


==================================================================
Submissions
==================================================================

Authors are invited to submit papers describing original
research results. Submissions will be refereed by the
program committee. Accepted papers will be published, as
in the last EP conference, as a special edition of
Electronic Publishing -- Origination, Dissemination, Design.
These proceedings will be available at the conference.
Complete papers in English on the following topics are
welcomed:

- Modeling and representation of documents

Document structures

In connection with the preparation of ICPR'96, here is a call for
tutorials:
------------------------------------------------------------
>From: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (Wilhelm Burger)
>Subject: ICPR'96 Call for Tutorial Proposals

*********************************************************************
ICPR'96 Call for Tutorial Proposals
*********************************************************************

The ICPR'96 organizing committee invites proposals for the tutorial
program of the upcoming ICPR, which is to be held in Vienna, Austria,
August 25-30, 1996. We plan to offer 4 to 6 half-day tutorials on
Sunday, August 25, 1996 (the conference starts on Monday).

We are inviting suggestions for suitable tutorial topics and possible
speakers (including yourself) and/or to forward this announcement to
potential tutorial speakers.

A preliminary list of suggested topics that can be covered by tutorials
is given below, but this list should only serve as a guide. Other
topics, both related to these and possibly quite different from them,
will also be considered:

AI methods in pattern recognition
Computational Geometry
Computing tools and environments
Data mining
Eigen-techniques
Fractal techniques in pattern analysis
Hierarchical methods in image understanding
Image compression
Image databases
Invariants
Neural networks in pattern recognition
OCR
PR for computer graphics, multimedia, virtual reality
Psychophysics, perception, cognition
Real-time systems
Robust statistical techniques
Scale-space techniques
Sensors
Speech recognition
Wavelets
...

As a reference, here is the list of tutorials that were held at ICPR'94
in Jerusalem:
1. "Invariant Theory for Pattern Recognition" (O. Faugeras)
2. "Neural Networks in Pattern Recognition" (Y. le Cun)
3. "Document Image Analysis" (H. Baird and L. O'Gorman)
4. "Statistical Pattern Recognition" (A. Jain)


Requirements for Submission:
A tutorial proposal should contain the following information:

+ A brief description of the tutorial, suitable for inclusion in the
conference registration brochure;
+ A detailed outline of the tutorial and a description of why the tutorial topic
is of interest to a substantial part of the ICPR audience;
+ The necessary background and the potential target audience for the tutorial
+ A brief resume of the presenter(s), which should include name, postal
address, phone and fax numbers, email address if available, background in the
tutorial area, any available example of work in the area (ideally, a published
tutorial-level article on the subject), evidence of teaching experience.

Those submitting a proposal should keep in mind that tutorials are intended to
provide an overview of the field; they should present reasonably well agreed-
upon information in a balanced way. Tutorials should not be used to advocate a
single avenue of research, nor should they promote a product.

This is the "financial package" for tutorial speakers:
1. Speakers will have their expenses reimbursed in the amount of US$ 1,000 per
tutorial. This can be done as payment of ICPR registration, hotel, and
airfare up to US$ 1,000, or cash payment upon presentation of receipts for
the above. Payment without such receipts may be subject to income tax.
2. For each attendant above 20, the speaker will get an additional US$ 50.
3. A tutorial may be cancelled in the event of insufficient pre-registration.
In this case ICPR'96 will have no financial obligation to the speakers,
but their ICPR'96 registration will be waved.


Please send all submissions before Jan. 1, 1996 to:

Space imagery is becoming available at increasingly higher geometric
resolutions, approaching those traditionally reserved to aerial
photography. The creation of base maps, the detection of changes, the
merging of images from different sensors all benefit from an ability to
automatically recognize man-made objects from digital overhead images. =
Yet
this ability is far from being available in a routine manner. To focus
attention on this issue we invite you to contribute to, and attend, a
specialist workshop. To this end we issue a

An international workshop on object representation for computer vision
will be held at the University of Cambridge, England, on April 13-14,
preceeding ECCV'96 which begins on April 15.

Technical contributions are sought in all relevant areas of computer
vision, including (but not restricted to) the following:

o Shape models
o Quasi invariants
o Appearance models
o Automatic model acquisition
o Functional models
o Indexing and recognition
o Object-class models
o Part decompositions
o Representational issues in applications

BACKGROUND:

In December of 1994, a workshop co-sponsored by NSF and ARPA was held
in New York City. Its goal was to evaluate current approaches to
object representation and to identify important issues and promising
research directions.

The 1996 Cambridge workshop is a follow-up to the 1994 New York
workshop. Its goals are:

o to present a state of the art of the research on object representation
for object recognition;
o to assess the progress achieved in key areas identified during the
first workshop, e.g., part decomposition and quasi invariants; and,
o to explore the representational issues involved in applications that
go beyond traditional object recognition, e.g., image databases,
manufacturing, medical imaging, or virtual reality.



FORMAT:

The workshop will consist of three half-day sessions, each of them
including an invited lecture, presentations of accepted papers, and a
panel. The invited speakers are:

o Takeo Kanade, Carnegie-Mellon University
o Jan Koenderink, Utrecht University
o Ram Nevatia, University of Southern California

To facilitate discussions, the attendance to the workshop will be
limited to a hundred participants. Submitted papers will be reviewed
by the program committee.

The proceedings (including the contributed papers and a summary of the
panel discussions) will be published after the workshop by
Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

The workshop will be held just prior to ECCV'96 at the University of
Cambridge, and accommodation will be at Robinson College.

INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS:

Four copies of each submitted paper (no more than 30 pages) should be
received no later than December 1, 1995 by

ICSC'95 CONFERENCE PROGRAMME


ICSC '95 - Third International Computer Science Conference:
Image Analysis Applications and Computer Graphics
Nikko Hotel, HONG KONG, 11-13 December 1995

Organised and Sponsored by the IEEE Hong Kong Section, Computer Chapter.

In cooperation with
IEEE Computer Society,
International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR),
ACM (HK).


MESSAGE FROM THE GENERAL CHAIRMAN

With the advance of imaging and image synthesis technologies, traditional
text-based computing is giving way to computational modalities which
manipulates, synthesise, and analyse visual data. We have only just
begun to see the benefits of such computation modules in the forms of
multimedia information kiosks, analysis and inspection systems for
medical and industrial images, and realistically rendered imageries
in TV commericals and motion pictures.

The ability to receive, process and deliver data in visual form is
paramount to the efficient perception and understanding of complex
information. This cannot be more clearly demonstrated in the areas
of medical diagnosis, engineering design, and system monitoring. The
needs to improve the performance and cost-efficiency in these areas have
led directly to the recent developments in data visualisation,
medical imaging, industrial inspection systems, Computer-aided
design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems, Geographic Information
Systems (GIS), and Automated Mapping and Facility Management
(AM/FM) systems.

In ICSC'95, the Third International Conference on Computer Science
to be held in Hong Kong by the IEEE (HK) Section Computer Chapter,
we will present the latest developments of the associate enabling
technologies that make such systems possible. Particularly, the
programme of image analysis applications and computer graphics aim
to highlight synergies in the two areas. The convergence of computer
graphics and image analysis techniques cannot be better illustrated
in one of our plenary sessions focussing on Model-based Video Coding
by Prof. T. Huang. The impact on the movie industry due to the
latest developments in computer graphics and animation is
clearly demonstrated in our other plenary session by
Mr. J. Lasseter from Pixar. Prof. Ahuja's invited talk on a novel
approach to visual imaging shows us the latest breakthrough in
imaging technology while Prof. Kasturi's tutorial gives
us a comprehensive review of the state-of-the-art
and current limitations in document image analysis.

I hope you will find ICSC'95 an occasion to meet friends and
colleagues who have helped shaping the technical developments
in the fields of image analysis and computer graphics and, at
the same time, find time to explore and to enjoy the dynamic
environment that makes Hong Kong unique among the major financial
cities of the World.

Title: Document Image Analysis Techniques: An Overview

Prof. Rangachar Kasturi, Professor of computer science and engineering,
Pennsylvania State University, U.S.A.

Objectives: This course will enable the participant to:

1. learn the basic principles of document image analysis methods for
optical character and graphics recognition
2. become familiar with the capabilities and limitations of automatic
document image processing techniques
3. understand the relationships among various system components to
facilitate systematic evaluation of document image analysis systems
4. know the state-of-the-art in vectorizers for converting
engineering drawings and maps.

Contents: Document image analysis systems automatically extract
formation from scanned images of paper-based documents. Such systems
recognize characters, symbols, and lines, establish spatial and
semantic relationships, and determine the overall structure. Their
output facilitates efficient storage, retrieval, and editing of the
documents' contents. The general procedure and sequence of methods
used in document image analysis are: data captured preprocessing,
segmentation and layout analysis, feature extraction and matching, text
and graphics recognition and interpretation. An overview of each of
these topics will be presented in this course. Applications of the
techniques discussed include automatic processing of business letters
and forms, conversion of engineering drawings and maps, input technical
of mail pieces, and recognition of musical notes, shorthand scripts,
etc. However, specific commercial systems will not be discussed.

HONG KONG
_______________________________________________________________________________

Hong Kong, widely known as the Pearl of the Orient, is one of the major
commercial and financial centers in the world. It also houses a harbor
that is the world's busiest container terminal. There are over 6
million residents in the city; the excitement within such a large
community is just as much a visitor attraction as the tens of thousands
of shops selling the world's luxuries duty-free.

Contrary to what many people think, Hong Kong is not just skyscraper
buildings. There are a large portion of nice scenery and a number of
assorted islands where one can still smell the rural life. Its
proximity to China is also a major attraction; one can get to Shenzhen,
a booming border city of China, within an hour by train from Hong Kong.

Most countries' citizens have visa-free access to Hong Kong, and its
airport has direct flights to most major cities around the world.
