CALL FOR PAPERS: Fifth Canadian Conference on Computer and Robot Vision (CRV'08)

The Fifth Canadian Conference on Computer and Robot Vision (CRV2008) will take place in Windsor, Ontario, May 28-30, 2008. CRV is a single-track conference consisting of high quality, previously unpublished papers.

CRV seeks contributions of complete, original research papers on any aspect of computer vision, robot vision, robotics, medical imaging, image processing or pattern recognition, including but not restricted to the following topics:

Vision topicsRobotics topics
  • Applications - biomedical, robotic, surveillance, inspection, entertainment
  • Biometrics
  • Calibration & rectification (Mosaicking)
  • Early vision
  • Face detection & recognition
  • Human activity recognition
  • Illumination, color & reflectance
  • Image and video retrieval
  • Learning & classification methods
  • Medical image analysis
  • Motion analysis (optical flow, structure from motion, correspondences)
  • Object recognition
  • Performance evaluation techniques
  • Segmentation & grouping
  • Shape analysis
  • Stereo
  • Texture analysis
  • Tracking (2D/3D)
  • Mapping / SLAM / Environment Modeling
  • Learning from sensor data
  • Vision-based navigation
  • Real-time sensing and control
  • Robot control architectures
  • Sensor fusion
  • Action selection
  • Assisted teleoperation
  • Multi-robot systems
  • Sensor networks
  • Software tools for vision and robotics

CRV provides an excellent environment for interdisciplinary interaction as well as for networking of students and scientists in computer vision, robotic vision, robotics, image understanding and pattern recognition. In addition to the regular sessions, there will be three invited speakers. There will be four paper awards: one for the best overall paper, one for the best paper with a student as first author, and area awards for the best paper in vision and robotics.

Joint Conferences

CRV 2008 will be held in conjunction with GI 2008 (Graphics Interface), AI 2008 (Artificial Intelligence), and Precarn Intelligent Systems (Precarn IS). For a single registration fee, participants can attend presentations at any of AI/GI/CRV/IS conferences. Fees to attend all four conferences are the same. Proceedings of the other conferences can be purchased at the conference.

A central web site for the co-located conferences is at


A significantly reducued registration fee is available to students. Reduced fees are also available to CIPPRS and IAPR members. CIPPRS welcomes members from all countries. Registration details are available on the conference website.

Paper Submissions

Paper Submission Deadline 13 January 2008
Acceptance/Rejection notification 28 February 2008
Revised camera-ready papers due 28 March 2008

Papers should be written in English. Paper length is limited to eight double-column pages using the Latex or Word templates available at the CRV08 web site. Papers must be submitted online in PDF format through the conference submission web page.

All papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee and may be accepted for full or poster presentation. All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings. The complete proceedings will be available online after the conference through the IEEE digital libraries.
