Mirage 2009 is an international conference with focus on Computer Vision/Computer Graphics collaboration techniques involving image analysis/synthesis approaches. In the domain of Computer Vision, this analysis by synthesis collaboration may take the form of model-based approaches for which the analysis, recognition or understanding process does not rely on the data only but is linked to the optimization of a parametric model introduced A PRIORI.

In the field of Computer Graphics, this thematic refers to image-based approaches which found the modeling, animation, lighting or rendering process on the analysis of real pre-existing data in order to gain in productivity or in realism. In both cases, this extraction and synthesis collaboration can be iterative and conducted in a loop: the synthesized information laying the foundations for a better characterization that will in turn enable the synthesis step. Augmented Reality is a direct application of this collaboration . Authors are encouraged to submit papers on theoretical, computational, experimental or industrial aspects of model-based image analysis and image-based model synthesis.

Mirage 2009 will be held in the new Jacques-Louis Lions conference room of the INRIA Rocquencourt research centre on May, 4-6 2009. The INRIA Rocquencourt research centre is located at a short drive of the historic Versailles castle. The Gala dinner will take place on the main floor of the Chateau Des Mesnuls where attendees will be able to feel the warm (unforgettable!) atmosphere of ancient times.
