Quantum Information Symposium       The Strength of Innovation in Wireless Communications      
Computer Vision and Image Processing Symposium

Although recent research of visual computing technology has witnessed great development on computer vision and image processing, the information explosion of daily released image/video data requires more intelligent computing scheme to handle such massive data. At the same time, the visual tasks from low-level to high-level vision confront many challenges, such as powerful and robust description for visual features; modeling diverse and complex visual patterns; and the designment of fast and efficient algorithm for real applications. The Symposium of Computer Vision and Image Processing is aiming at providing a platform to bring the new developments and original work, as well as possible emerging techniques with a potential to further improve the performance, or to lead to new algorithms and applications for all vision tasks. This symposium targets a mixed audience of researchers from several communities, such as computer vision, pattern recognition, image/video processing, information extraction/retrieval, data mining and machine learning, etc. Both theoretical contributions and application validations are welcome.
