Computer Vision and Image Understanding

Intelligent Vision Systems



The explosive number of video cameras and the increasing computing power of computers extend the potential number of applications of vision algorithms. It brings also new challenges to the vision community. In particular the design of intelligent and robust vision systems becomes a rising topic for both researchers and developers from academic fields and industries worldwide. With this special issue we intend to cover all aspects of Intelligent Vision Systems. By this we mean vision systems that interact with or respond to their environment in a dynamic and adaptive manner, with an emphasis put on integrated systems that are robust enough to be deployed in largely unconstrained environments.

We solicit papers for a special issue of Computer Vision and Image Understanding (CVIU) relating to Intelligent Vision Systems. This call was motivated by the proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Computer Vision Systems  (ICVS'07) held in 2007 at Bielefeld University, Germany on March 21st-23rd.
We welcome submission from researchers and engineers who did not participate to the conference, as well as from  those who did.


Potential topics include all aspects of intelligent vision systems:
