Acivs 2018 – Lecture Notes in Computer Science
Advanced Concepts for Intelligent Vision Systems
Sept. 24-27, 2018
Espace Mendes France, Poitiers, France
Acivs 2018 is a conference focusing on techniques for building adaptive,
intelligent, safe and secure imaging systems. Acivs 2018 consists of four
days of lecture sessions, both regular (25 minutes) and invited
presentations, and poster sessions. The proceedings of Acivs 2018 will be
published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series
and are listed in the ISI proceedings index. Official Springer records
show that the conference reaches a wide audience: the proceedings
convering the period 2005-2016 have been donwloaded over half a million
A special issue of the international journal Integrated Computer-Aided
Engineering will be devoted to a selected number of extended and updated
versions of the most interesting/innovative papers presented at the Acivs
2018 conference. The submitted journal paper must have at least 1/3 of new
or changed content.
Acivs 2018 will also feature several social activities (included in the
registration fee), including an opening reception, a conference dinner and
a cultural acivitity. In addtion Acivs 2018 will be organized at the same
date and place as the ICFSP conference, and will provide a good
opportunity to attend both events.
The conference fee includes the social program (conference dinner, opening
reception, and cultural activities), coffee breaks, daily lunches and a
copy of the proceedings. The registration fees (including VAT) are 250€
for students, 400€ for IEEE members and 450€ for all other participants).
In addition, registration to ACIVS grants a free admission to the
In case one presenter presents multiple papers at the conference, one
registration fee suffices. However an additional fee of 200€ will be
charged for each additional paper.
Acivs 2018 will feature several invited talks, to be announded later.
Papers must show original and high-quality work, from basic research to
pre-industrial application. Topics of interest include, but are not
* Image and Video Processing: preprocessing (scanning, sampling,
quantization, …), compressed sensing, filtering, restoration and
enhancement, color processing; including applications like
multi-camera systems and sensor networks.
* Multidimensional Image Processing: optical, infrared, radar, sonar,
polarimetric, multispectral, hyperspectral and other types of images
and videos; including applications like remote sensing and medical
* Image and Video Analysis: segmentation, computational photography,
tracking, pattern analysis, computer vision, early and biologically
inspired vision, information geometry, image and video databases,
search and retrieval, multimodality, authentication and watermarking;
including applications like events supervision, surveillance
applications, biometrics and forensics, robotics, vision-based
guidance and navigation.
* Image and Video Coding: coding, quality metrics, image and video
protection; including applications like multimedia applications,
mobile imaging, augmented reality.
Both classical research papers and application papers are welcome.
The conference will take place in Espace Mendes France, Poitiers, France
on Sept. 24-27, 2018.
Paper submission and review process
Prospective authors should prepare a full paper and submit it
electronically. The paper should consist of 8-12 pages in A4 format and
should conform to the style guidelines outlined on the Acivs 2018
Papers should be submitted in LaTeX format or MsWord format. However the
use of MSWord is strongly discouraged since MSWord documents, especially
those containing equations, often suffer from poor typesetting.
LaTeX style sheets, MSWord templates and more detailed information on
the submission process can be found on the Acivs 2018 website
(http://acivs.org/acivs2018/). It is absolutely essential that
submitted papers are based on the provided templates. Accepted papers
which do not satisfy the requirements or which cannot be processed without
changes will be returned to the authors and may not be published.
All submissions will be reviewed by at least 2 members of the Program
Committee; additional reviewers will be consulted if needed. The papers
should provide sufficient background information and should clearly
indicate the original contribution. They should state and discuss the main
results and provide adequate references. Paper submission implies that one
of the authors will present the paper if it is accepted. Duplicate
submissions to other conferences, or modified copies of earlier papers are
Submission implies the authors have obtained all IP clearance from their
employers, eg. the submitted material contains nothing that is
The proceedings of Acivs 2018 will be published by Springer in the
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. LNCS is published, in
parallel to the printed books, in full-text electronic form via Springer’s
internet platform (http://www.springerlink.com).
