Computer Vision - ACCV 2010: 10th Asian Conference on Computer Vision, Queenstown, New Zealand

Buy

The 2010 Asian Conference on Computer Vision took place in the southern hemisphere, in “The Land of the Long White Cloud” in Maori language, also known as New Zealand, in the beautiful town of Queenstown. If we try to segment the world we realize that New Zealand does not belong officially to any continent. Similarly, in computer vision we often try to define outliers while attempting to segment images, separate them to well-defined “continents” we refer to as objects. Thus, the ACCV Steering Committee consciously chose this remote and pretty island as a perfect location for ACCV2010, to host the computer vision conference of the most populated and largest continent, Asia. Here, on South Island we studied and exchanged ideas about the most recent advances in image understanding and processing sciences.

Scientists from all well-defined continents (as well as ill-defined ones) submitted high-quality papers on subjects ranging from algorithms that attempt to automatically understand the content of images, optical methods coupled with computational techniques that enhance and improve images, and capturing and analyzing the world’s geometry while preparing for higher-level image and shape understanding. Novel geometry techniques, statistical-learning methods, and modern algebraic procedures rapidly propagate their way into this fascinating field as we witness in many of the papers one can find in this collection.

For this 2010 issue of ACCV, we had to select a relatively small part of all the submissions and did our best to solve the impossible ranking problem in the process. We had three keynote speakers (Sing Bing Kang lecturing on modeling of plants and trees, Sebastian Sylwan talking about computer vision in production of visual effects, and Tim Cootes lecturing about modelling deformable object), eight workshops (Computational Photography and Esthetics, Computer Vision in Vehicle Technology, e-Heritage, Gaze Sensing and Interactions, Subspace, Video Event Categorization, Tagging and Retrieval, Visual Surveillance, and Application of Computer Vision for Mixed and Augmented Reality), and four tutorials. Three Program Chairs and 38 Area Chairs finalized the decision about the selection of 35 oral presentations and 171 posters that were voted for out of 739, so far the highest number of ACCV, submissions. During the reviewing process we made sure that each paper was reviewed by at least three reviewers, we added a rebuttal phase for the first time in ACCV, and held a three-day AC meeting in Tokyo to finalize the non-trivial acceptance decision-making process.

Our sponsors were the Asian Federation of Computer Vision Societies (AFCV), NextWindow–Touch-Screen Technology, NICTA–Australia’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT), Microsoft Research Asia, Areograph–Interactive Computer Graphics, Adept Electronic Solutions, and 4D View Solutions.

In the early 20th century, American sociologist W. I. Thomas won fame with the statement: ‘If men define situations as real, they are real in their consequences.’ This fundamental observation on human behavior, now known as the Thomas theorem, became a cornerstone of contemporary sociology. The idea that our...
