Asian Conference on Computer Vision (ACCV 2014), Singapore Nov 1-5, 2014

URL: www.accv2014.org

Important Dates:

Paper submission deadline: June 20, 2014

Workshop proposals deadline: April 15, 2014

ACCV'14 conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Award-winning papers will be selected to appear in a special issue of Computer Vision and Image Understanding (CVIU).

The 12th Asian Conference on Computer Vision (ACCV 2014) will be held in Singapore on Nov 1-5, 2014. ACCV is a leading biennial international conference focused on computer vision, pattern recognition, and related areas. This highly successful series provides a premier forum for researchers, developers, and practitioners to present and discuss new problems, solutions, and technologies in computer vision and related areas.

ACCV 2014 solicits high-quality original research for publication in its main conference and co-located workshops.

General Chairs

Michael S. Brown (NUS), Tat-Jen Cham (NTU), Yasuyuki Matsushita (MSRA)

Program Chairs

Daniel Cremers (TUM), Ian Reid (U. Adelaide) Hideo Saito (Keio U.), Ming-Hsuan Yang (UC Merced) 

Topics include (but are not limited to):

* Motion and Tracking

* Stereo and Structure from Motion

* Shape from X

* Color and Texture

* Segmentation and Grouping

* Image-Based Modeling

* Illumination and Reflectance Modeling

* Sensors & Early and Biologically-Inspired Vision

* Computational Photography and Video

Registration is now open for WACV 2014, which will be held March 24-26 in Steamboat Springs, CO.

While the acronym is being kept, the PAMI-TC's premier meeting on applications of computer vision has been promoted to be a full IEEE conference, rather than an IEEE workshop. This means scope of topics has been increased to all areas of computer vision.
