VISAPP is organized by INSTICC - Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication.

Locally Organized and Hosted by Université d'Angers and ISTIA, École d'Ingénieurs de l'Université d'Angers en Génie des Systèmes Industriels.


The International Conference on Computer Vision Theory and Applications (VISAPP) aims at becoming a major point of contact between research scientists, engineers and practitioners on the area of computer vision applications systems. Four simultaneous tracks will be held, covering all different aspects related to computer vision, from Image Formation to Image Understanding including Motion Analysis and Stereo Vision.
Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged.
Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the Proceedings of VISAPP. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions.
Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as technical tutorials, dedicated to technical/scientific topics, are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in lecturing a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat.


Each of these topic areas is expanded below. Papers should address one or more of the listed topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related topics are also allowed.

The conference will be held in the University of Angers. Angers is the capital of the historic province of Anjou and is considered one of the most beautiful cities in France with its old streets, museums, gardens, gastronomic restaurants and art festivals. Angers is located in western France in the Loire Valley well known by its chateaux, just 2h30 by motorway and 1h30 by high-speed train from Paris.


All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a LCNS Series book.
The proceedings will be indexed by Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC and DBLP.
EI already agreed to index the proceedings of VISAPP 2006, 2007 and 2008. Proceedings of VISAPP 2009 are under evaluation and the proceedings of VISAPP 2010 will be evaluated by EI after their publication.
