Advanced Concepts for Intelligent Vision Systems
Aug. 22-25 2011
Het Pand, Ghent, Belgium
The proceedings of Acivs 2011 (LNCS volume 6915) are available at springer on-line.
Acivs 2011 is a conference focusing on techniques for building adaptive, intelligent, safe and secure imaging systems. Acivs 2011 consists of four days of lecture sessions, both regular (25 mns) and invited presentations, poster sessions. The proceedings of Acivs 2011 will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and are listed in the ISI proceedings index.
Acivs 2011 was co-located with the International Conference on Distributed Camera Systems (ICDSC 2011). Attendance to both conferences is possible by subscribing to one. Participants in Acivs 2011 could attend the technical sessions of the ICDSC for free and also received a copy of the ICDSC 2011 proceedings.
Best paper awards
This year Acivs 2011 was organised jointly with the ICDSC conference. As ICDSC has traditionally presented best paper awards, we decided to also present a best paper award at Acivs 2011. The award consisted of a tablet PC, graciously donated by Alcatel-Lucent.
For the Acivs 2011 best paper award 5 papers were preselected among the ones with the best review scores. Next, four referees selected among distinghuished conference attendants, excluding those related to the authors of the pre-selected papers and excluding the organisers. The referees were asked to score the papers on a scale from 1 to 20. They were asked to base their score primarily on originality and technical content. The winner was the paper with the highest total.
And the winner was....
"Automatic Occlusion Removal from Facades for 3D Urban Reconstruction,"
Chris Engels, David Tingdahl, Mathias Vercruysse, Tinne Tuytelaars, Hichem Sahli, Luc Van Gool.
The following paper was second in the ranking. It did not receive a prize, but it deserves an honourable mention on this website:
"A Biologically Inspired Image Coder with Temporal Scalability"
Khaled Masmoudi, Marc Antonini, Pierre Kornprobst.
In the ICDSC 2011 conference a similar procedure for selecting a best paper award and a best PhD forum paper award was followed. Each winner received a tablet pc, graciously donated by IBBT. More information will appear on the ICDSC 2011 website.
Acivs 2011 will feature the following invited talks:
- Marc De Mey
(UGent and Koninklijke Vlaamse Academie van België)
Optical Issues in the Paintings of Jan Van Eyck
- Peter Meijer
Camera-based sensory substitution and augmented reality for the blind
