  7. 7. www.electronicimaging.org · TEL: +1 703 642 9090 · ei@imaging.org · #electroimaging 5 Call for Papers The Engineering Reality of Virtual Reality 2014 (EI102) Conference Chairs: Margaret Dolinsky, Indiana Univ. (USA); Ian E. McDowall, Fakespace Labs, Inc. (USA) Due Dates: Abstract (500 words) and Summary (200 words): 22 July 2013 Manuscript for Post-Meeting Proceedings: 6 January 2014 Virtual and augmented reality systems are evolving. In addition to research, the trend toward content building continues and practitioners find that technologies and disciplines must be tailored and integrated for specific visualization and interactive applications. This conference serves as a forum where advances and practical advice toward both creative activity and scientific investigation are presented and discussed. Research results can be presented and applications can be demonstrated. In addition to the general topic area, the 2014 conference is encouraging the submission of work in the following areas: • Advances in AR: Augmented reality is on the verge of becoming a significant emergent technology platform which is being developed, tested and discussed throughout the media landscape. Is the current interest in AR sustainable and substantial or is AR destined to be a novelty? Papers that look at the hardware, software, content and cultural context behind cutting-edge AR are sought for the conference. Topics might include AR UI and UX, AR in education/learning, AR gaming, art in AR and the future of AR. • Compelling experiences: A compelling immersive experience transports the user to a place that is viscerally felt, not easily forgotten, yet completely synthetic. This requires subtle interplay between the technological and creative arts. Papers that present working systems or ongoing research into the delicate balance between these disciplines are desired. • Stubborn problems: interaction, tracking, lag, rendering speed, field of view, resolution, et.al. These are but a few of the topic areas which vex the field every year. Papers presenting work improving the state of the art in these areas are encouraged. In addition, the 2014 conference is specifically seeking work that explores aesthetics and interaction in 3D environments. • Industrial applications: systems that solve real- world problems from a wide variety of disciplines are a mainstay of the conference. It especially promotes papers that describe systems which are important because of the problems they solve, and not the technology they use, and papers that describe systems which can quantify their utility. Practitioners in industry are highly encouraged to make submissions. • Women in VR: many women are key to the advancement of the field of virtual reality, including establishing hardware systems, forging research directions and creating experiences. We invite research activities that are influenced from a feminine perspective. Papers presenting work by women or derived from their research areas are encouraged. The 2014 conference is specifically seeking work that explores how a feminine perspective discovers, examines and designs virtual reality systems. • Late-breaking progress: one to two presentations are allotted for exciting ‘late-breaking’ work that is submitted after the formal paper deadline but within a month of the conference date. Papers reporting on work-in-progress, last-minute results, or interesting but incomplete findings are welcome for these limited spots. Submit your abstract today www.electronicimaging.org

Abstract Requirement: 1,000 words (3 pages) The following questions have to be specifically addressed in the abstract: 1. what is the addressed scientific topic or problem? 2. what are the challenges and barriers faced? 3. why this is important for the 3D community? 4. what is the original method proposed to address this problem or issue? 5. what is the novelty comparing to the state of art? 6. what is the efficiency of the method (presentation of results and comparison with the state of art)? If the submission does not respect this format (3 pages, all the 6 points explicitly addressed, some preliminary results shown), it will not be reviewed by the Program Committee. Scientific and technological advances in the fields of image acquisition, processing, telecommunications, and computer graphics during the last decade, have contributed to the emergence of new multimedia, especially 3D digital data. Nowadays, the acquisition, processing, transmission, and visualization of three- dimensional objects are a part of possible and realistic functionalities over the internet. Confirmed 3D processing techniques exist and a large scientific community hardly works on open problems and new challenges, including 3D data processing, transmission, fast access to huge 3D databases, or content security management. The emergence of 3D media is also directly related to the emergence of the 3D acquisition technologies. Indeed, recent advances in 3D scanner acquisition and 3D graphics rendering technologies boost the creation of 3D model archives for several application domains. These include archaeology, cultural heritage, Computer Assisted Design (CAD), medicine, 3D face recognition, videogames, or bioinformatics. New devices such as time-of-flight cameras open challenging new perspectives on 3D scene analysis and reconstruction. Three-dimensional objects are quite more complex to handle than other multimedia data, such as audio signals, images, or videos. Indeed, only a unique and simple 2D grid representation is associated to a 2D image. All the 2D acquisition devices generate this same representation (digital cameras, scanners or 2D medical systems). Unfortunately (for the users) and fortunately (for the scientists), there exist different three- dimensional representations for a 3D object. An object can be represented on a 3D grid like a digital image, or in a 3D Euclidian space. In the later case, the object can be expressed by a single equation (like algebraic implicit surfaces), by a set of facets representing its boundary surface or by a set of mathematical surfaces. One can easily imagine the numerous open problems related to these different representations and their processing, a new challenge for the image processing community. This conference will be focused on the following topics related to 3D data: • video, 3D, 4D and multimodal imaging systems • 3D/4D imaging metrology • 3D/4D data preprocessing and filtering • multiview data integration • representations: models, tools for transformation, simplification • analysis: feature extraction, segmentation, classification, pattern recognition • 3D shape indexing and retrieval • compression and communication • security: encryption, watermarking • scene analysis: from 2D views to 3D reconstruction and interpretation • 3D scene or model reconstruction from video, standard cameras or time-of-flight cameras • quality assessment • hardware/software implementations The applications domains are: • multimedia services • computer aided design (CAD) • cultural heritage • gaming • tourism (e.g., virtual museum tours) • medical imaging and analysis • machine vision • geographical information systems (GIS) • 3D imaging technology
  9. 9. www.electronicimaging.org · TEL: +1 703 642 9090 · ei@imaging.org · #electroimaging 7 Visualization, Perception, and Color The goal of this conference is to explore the role of human perception and cognition in the design, analysis, and use of electronic media systems. Over the years, it has brought together researchers from a wide variety of scientific and technical disciplines, from all over the world, for a rich and lively exchange of ideas. We believe that understanding the human observer is fundamental to the advancement of electronic media systems, and that advances in these systems and applications are driving new research into the perception, and cognition of the human observer. This year, we will be organizing several special sessions, centered on areas where HVEI papers have had significant impact in the field of Electronic Imaging.

Recent advances in computational resources and in the understanding of the human aspects are leading to new approaches that extend the purely metrological view towards a perceptual view of color in documents and displays. Part of this perceptual view is the incorporation of spatial aspects, adaptive color processing based on image content and the automation of color tasks, to name a few. This dynamic nature applies to hardcopy devices, but to an even larger extend to soft-copy displays. Adaptive gamut and tone mapping, dynamic contrast, adaptive power usage and color management continue to support the unprecedented development of the display hardware spreading from mobile displays to large size screens. This conference provides an opportunity for presenting, as well as getting acquainted, with the most recent developments in color imaging technologies and applications. Focus of the conference is on color image input, dynamic color image output and rendering, color image automation, emphasizing color in context and color in images, and on the reproduction of images across local and remote devices. The conference covers software, media, and systems. Special attention is given to applications and requirements created by new disciplines. Areas of interest include: • Image processing for color input, softcopy / hardcopy output and electronic publishing: automatic color correction, image preference processing (automatic as well as user-guided), visual tolerance, quantization, halftoning, data compression and artifact reduction • Color reproduction: spatial aspects of color, color in context, color reproduction across devices, network color management, color appearance, color preference and estimation, chromatic adaptation, computational color science, high- dynamic range imaging and tone mapping, wide gamut imaging systems, wide pixel encoding and image processing pipelines • Systems and architectures: device independent color implementation in commercial systems, color management, color matching device drivers, system performance, imaging workflow • Device modeling and characterization: paper UV fluorescence, infra-red behavior, etc. and their influence on rendering • Effects of extra-spectral attributes: paper UV fluorescence, infra-red behavior, etc. and their influence on rendering • Applications of color hard and soft copy: medical imaging, cartography, fine arts, use of color in documents, new communications media, knowledge delivery • Color image encoding and standards: interchange languages, file formats, color encoding, ICC profiles • Representation and encoding of compound documents: mixed raster content, multiplane imaging models, document compression • Spatial processing: exploring spatial aspects in image processing, including spatial aspects of human perception as it relates to image rendering. The Special Session entitled ‘The Dark Side of Color’ will group challenging questions, open issues, alternative views, paradigm shifts, bottom up experimentation, re-addressing the current state of the color science, technology and applications. For this session, we are looking for well-asked questions rather than tangible results.

The perceived quality of images is of crucial importance in industrial, medical and entertaining application environments. Developments in digital printing, flat panel displays, camera sensors, image processing power, and 3D imaging are enabling new or enhanced possibilities for creating and conveying visual content that informs or entertains. Wireless networks and mobile devices expand the ways to share imagery. The power of imaging rests directly on the visual quality of the images and the systems that produce them. As the images are generally intended to be viewed by humans, consideration of the role of human visual perception is intrinsic to the effective assessment of image quality. This conference brings together industrial and academic engineers and scientists who strive to understand what makes a high quality image and how to assess the requirements and performance of modern imaging systems. We focus on both objective and subjective methods for evaluating the perceptual quality of images. We include applications throughout the imaging chain from image capture, through processing, and on to output, whether printed or displayed, whether video or still images, whether 2D or 3D. We welcome abstracts describing recent developments in the following and related areas: Image quality objective and subjective evaluation • image quality attributes characterization and metrics • psychophysical testing and scaling • integration of image quality attributes, pooling of metrics • image preference measurement and modeling • tools and instrumentation to quantify visual attributes • image quality and saliency, scene dependency • design of analytical test targets • development of test image databases with perceptual reference data • image quality survey design (print, web-based, mobile) • advances in perceptual image quality understanding • vision based modeling of image quality perception • image quality and image aesthetics • quality of (multimedia) experience System performance measurement and modeling • linking perceptual image quality to system performance parameters • extraction of image quality measures from digital images • MTF, rendering of fine detail and perception of sharpness • gamut size, color rendering, ICC profile evaluation • image noise analysis and color error propagation • image artifact perception, evaluation and simulation • metrics for imaging device performance • methods for competitive benchmarking, quality assurance • multi-media and cross-media system evaluations • task-oriented image quality evaluation (e.g. medical, imaging, automotive vision, and remote sensing) • readability of electronic paper and mobile display • balancing image quality against cost, features and reliability Standards for image quality and system performance • mobile imaging performance • video imaging performance • 3D representation, 3D displays, 2.5 and 3D printing • medical and forensic imaging • measurement of print and display microstructure (dots, edges, color, resolution, distortion, etc.) • image artifact characterization (banding, streaking, defective pixels, etc) • statistical methods for system performance specification The committee will review all submitted abstracts and feedback will be sent to the authors.

The number of both still images and videos that are currently taken is unprecedented. Thanks to smart phones, the average person carries a high resolution camera everywhere he goes, and captures more pictures and videos than ever before. A wide range of consumer and professional cameras offers new features that allow photographers to capture high quality images even in challenging situations. Even an inexperienced photographer can now achieve excellent results. Advanced digital photography technologies continue to revolutionize scientific research, providing ways to capture data that were previously unobtainable. They also play a crucial role in industry, defense, health care and many other areas.

Bingham, Oak Ridge National Lab. (USA); Kurt S. Niel, Fachhochschule Wels (Austria) Due Dates: Abstract (500 words) and Summary (200 words): 22 July 2013 Manuscript for Post-Meeting Proceedings: 6 January 2014 The goal of this conference is to bring together real-world practitioners and laboratory researchers in machine vision to share recent applications and developments. Topics of interest include the integration of imaging sensors, supporting hardware, computers, and algorithms for manufacturing inspection, characterization, and/or control. The decreased cost of computational power and vision sensors has motivated the rapid proliferation of machine vision technology in a variety of industries. Examples of such industries include aluminum, automotive, forest products, textiles, glass, steel, metal casting, and chemicals. Other industries, such as semiconductor and electronics manufacturing, have been employing machine vision technology for several years. Machine vision supporting handling robots is another main topic for industrial applications. There is need of accurate, fast and robust detection of objects and their position in space. Their surface, the background and illumination is uncontrolled, in most cases the objects of interest are within a bulk of many others. For both new and existing industrial users of machine vision, there are numerous innovative methods to improve productivity, quality, and compliance with product standards. There are several broad problem areas that have received significant attention in recent years. For example, some industries are collecting enormous amounts of image data from product monitoring systems. New and efficient methods are required to extract insight and to perform process diagnostics based on this historical record. Regarding the physical scale of the measurements, microscopy techniques are nearing resolution limits in fields such as semiconductors, biology, and other nanoscale technologies. Techniques such as resolution enhancement, model-based methods, and statistical imaging may provide the means to extend these systems beyond current capabilities. Furthermore, obtaining real-time and robust measurements in-line or at-line in harsh industrial environments is a challenge for machine vision researchers, especially when the manufacturer cannot make significant changes to their facility or process. Abstracts are sought that are related to both novel applications of existing methodology and/or new algorithms or techniques. Abstracts are encouraged from, but not limited to, the following list of topics: • image processing algorithms and applications • image-related pattern recognition techniques and applications • image-related data mining and knowledge discovery • three-dimensional imaging (stereo, structure-from- motion, laser range finding) • non-classical sensing • physical imaging • thermal, color, and/or spectroscopic imaging algorithms and applications • novel hardware designs • vision system architectures • imaging and inspection in harsh environments • machine vision for process control/diagnosis, trend analysis, or preventative maintenance • high-throughput systems for medical or biological applications • case studies on the impact of machine vision in manufacturing • machine vision applications for industrial research and development • machine vision supporting handling robots • computational vision and imaging techniques.

Major applications of these technologies span the spectrum from surveillance, transportation, remote sensing, social media, sports, retail, and biomedical to name a few. Only recently has the potential for these technologies begun to be realized in various commercial, government and consumer based applications. For instance, automated video understanding can enhance surveillance/ monitoring systems beyond what is possible for human operators alone. These systems are being developed to maintain long-term surveillance on large numbers of video streams for various applications with minimal or no manual intervention. In addition, automated systems can coordinate multiple cameras and provide “synopsis” views of activities that can be used to predict/analyze potential events pre or post mortem. On the other hand, transportation systems, the life blood of our economic and social lives, are far from their ideal state. Vehicle accidents are the number one cause of death in the US for ages 4 to 34, and expected to surpass disease as a cause of death for all ages worldwide by 2020. By some estimates, half the fuel consumed in San Francisco is consumed while searching for a parking space. Vehicular congestion is a leading cause of lost productivity and the fuel efficiency considerations have traditionally received very limited attention in the design of present day systems. Over the past two decades, various video analytics algorithms have been proposed for autonomous understanding of events for a variety of surveillance and transportation type applications. While most of the earlier solutions started from raw data and followed with the interpretation at increasing levels of semantic complexity, more recent techniques attempt to bridge the gap between signal-level and semantic level processing. Technological solutions to problems in these areas have the potential for very significant societal impacts on many fronts from airport/stadium/ building/city security to patient/elderly care. There is an emerging global effort to develop effective surveillance systems to monitor various facilities and smarter transportation networks to improve fuel efficiency, safety, and reduce emissions and congestions in various metropolitan areas throughout the world. This Call for Papers is intended to bring together world class researchers and practitioners that develop and deploy imaging and video technologies to enable novel solutions for problems in the surveillance, security and transportation arenas. Topics for consideration include, but are not limited to: Law enforcement • license plate and vehicle identification • speed detection from stationary or mobile platforms • seat belt enforcement • expired registration detection • stop/light sign enforcement • shoplifting Efficiency • video-based parking spot detection for billing or navigation • traffic congestion detection • assisted driving/parking • transit time estimation Environmental • reduction of emissions • gasoline and chemical spill detection Infrastructure monitoring and optimization • traffic flow measurements • road and bridge inspection • snow plow and bus cameras • vehicle classification • vehicle conditions (overheated brakes, underinflated tires) Surveillance • sampling and selection techniques • video segmentation and tracking algorithms • event detection algorithms • subspace methods for video analytics • cooperative and context based tracking • fusion of multiple sensors and various modalities • Bayesian models for tracking and activity monitoring Imaging for motor vehicles and autonomous devices • driver alertness estimation • road condition sensing (water, ice, dry, potholes, etc) continuted next page Call for Papers
