Acivs 2010 Conference program

Print version of this page.



The proceedings of Acivs 2010 are available on line as two volumes: LNCS 6474 and LNCS 6475.

Acivs 2010 is a conference focusing on techniques for building adaptive, intelligent, safe and secure imaging systems. Acivs 2010 consists of four days of lecture sessions, both regular (25 mns) and invited presentations and two poster sessions. To ensure a large audience for each oral presentation or poster, there will be no parallel sessions.

Acivs 2010 also features a social program consisting of a conference dinner (held on a boat, during a 3-hour Sydney Harbour cruise. It is organised by "Magistic Cruises"), and a social activity (Visit to Taronga Zoo, or alternative event in case of inclement weather).


Some of the topics covered by this year's conference are:

Invited speakers

Acivs 2010 will feature the following invited talks:


If you wish to participate in the conference, please register online.

The conference fee includes the social program (conference dinner, coffee breaks, snacks and social activity) and a copy of the LNCS conference proceedings. The exact amount depends on whether or not you register early and on some other factors.
