Acivs 2009 is a conference focusing on techniques for building adaptive, intelligent, safe and secure imaging systems. Acivs 2009 consists of four days of lecture sessions, both regular (25 mns) and invited presentations, poster sessions and a special session on performance assessment of vision systems.

Acivs 2009 will also feature a conference dinner, and other social activities. The social activities are detailed below.

Paper submission and review process

Prospective authors should prepare a full paper and submit it electronically. The paper should consist of 8-12 pages in A4 format and should conform to the style guidelines outlined on the Acivs 2009 website.

Papers should be submitted in LaTeX format or MsWord format. However the use of MSWord is strongly discouraged since MSWord documents, especially those containing equations, often suffer from poor typesetting.

LaTeX style sheets, MSWord templates and more detailed information on the submission process can be found on the Acivs 2009 website ( It is absolutely essential that submitted papers are based on the provided templates. Accepted papers which do not satisfy the requirements or which cannot be processed without changes will be returned to the authors and may not be published.
All submissions will be reviewed by at least 2 members of the Program Committee; additional reviewers will be consulted if needed. The papers should provide sufficient background information and should clearly indicate the original contribution. They should state and discuss the main results and provide adequate references. Paper submission implies that one of the authors will present the paper if it is accepted.

Conference proceedings

The proceedings of Acivs 2009 will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. LNCS is published, in parallel to the printed books, in full-text electronic form via Springer Verlags internet platform (
