Acivs 2018 Conference program

Print version of this page.



Acivs 2018 is a conference focusing on techniques for building adaptive, intelligent, safe and secure imaging systems. Acivs 2018 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.

Invited speakers

Acivs 2018 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 activities) and a copy of the LNCS conference proceedings.

The exact amount of the registration fee depends on whether or not you register early and on some other factors.

Before August 15, 2018 After August 15, 2018
Regular 450€ 550€
IEEE Member 400€ 500€
Student 250€ 350€

In case one presenter presents multiple papers at the conference, one registration fee suffices. However an additional fee of 200€ (before August 15, 2018) or 220€ (after August 15, 2018) will be charged for each additional paper.

Additional tickets for the social program can be purchased for the amount of € (before August 15, 2018) or € (after August 15, 2018).
