ICIAP 2001 - First announcement
11th International Conference on Image Analysis and Processing
September 26-28, 2001 - Palermo, Italy

The International Conference on Image Analysis and Processing is organized
biennially by the Italian Chapter of the International Association for
Pattern Recognition (IAPR-IC) since 1981, with the aim to be an
forum for presentation and discussion of advances in the field and new
perspective research areas.
The scientific program of the Conference will include plenary lectures
invited speakers, and contributed papers presented in the Conference
Papers will be accepted for both oral and poster presentation. All papers
be revised by three international referees and carefully selected, in
maintain the high scientific level of the conference.
Application papers addressed to industrial applications are also
Early vision and image analysis.
Visual processing starts from measurements (feature extraction and
representation) on which image operators are applied to extract shape and
motion primitives, texture and color information. In this phase the active
vision paradigm plays a relevant role in image segmentation and grouping
as well in image and video sequence analysis.
Pattern recognition and image inference.
Higher level of visual processing regards statistical, structural and
syntactic pattern recognition. Neural networks are considered useful tools
for learning and classification. Genetic algorithms are becoming of great
interest in the search of global solutions. Model acquisition, digital
geometry and shape reconstruction techniques are important for 2D and 3D
object recognition. Spatial reasoning needs new spatial data structure and
flexible inference rules.
Visual processing for communication.
Multimedia databases, digital and video libraries need efficient image and
video methods for compression and coding. Image databases and video
processing require suitable indexing and retrieval solutions. Visual
languages allows the natural and optimized formulation of visual
Both visual communication and human-computer interaction are based on
advanced visual interfaces.
Wide spectra of image analysis applications are welcome (astronomy,
and biomedicine, cultural heritage, OCR and document analysis, mobile
and visual navigation, remote sensing and GIS, surveillance, smart sensors
and dedicated architectures, visual inspection and quality control,...).
More emphasis will be done to real cases and working prototypes.
The Conference Proceedings book will be published by the IEEE Computer
