Acivs 2011 Conference program

Print version of this page.



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 and two poster sessions. To ensure a large audience for each oral presentation or poster, there will be no parallel sessions.

Acivs 2011 also features a social program consisting of a welcome reception at City Hall, a conference dinner, and a social activity (Guided walk in Ghent, including a visit of the Saint Baafs Cathedral and the famous "Lam Gods" painting).


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