Special Session on "Soft Computing in Image Processing" at the ICVGIP 
2004 Conference, Kolkata (India), December 16 - 18, 2004

Call for Papers

You are kindly invited to participate in the special session on Soft 
Computing in Image Processing to be organized at the ICVGIP 2004 
Conference. ICVGIP 2004, the 4th Indian Conference on Computer Vision, 
Graphics and Image Processing, is held in Kolkata (India), from December 
16 until December 18, 2004.

Soft Computing techniques involve different methodologies, e.g. fuzzy 
set theory, neural networks, genetic algorithms and rough set theory. 
The capabiblity of these techniques to incorporate imprecision and 
incomplete information, and to model very complex systems makes them a 
usefull tool in many scientific areas. Needless to say, image processing 
is one of these areas.

The aim of this session is to provide an international forum for 
presentation of recent results and advances regarding soft computing 
techniques in image processing. It is a unique opportunity for 
researchers in this area to meet and to exchange ideas. It is also a way 
to establish and/or intensify international cooperation. Topics include 
but are not limited to:

    * noise reduction in images
    * edge detection and segmentation
    * feature extraction
    * image enhancement
    * image compression
    * similarity between images
    * image analysis
    * ...

Authors are invited to submit one or more full papers describing 
theoretical or practical results for review by April 30, 2004. Papers 
should be written in English, not exceeding 6 single-sided pages on A4 
paper, in two-column format, in Times or a similar font of 10 points or 
larger. If you are interested in submitting a paper for the session on 
"Soft Computing in Image Processing", please let us know with a short 
email and a short abstract. If you already have submitted a paper for 
the ICVGIP 2004 Conference and if you think it fits in the scope of this 
session, you can let us know this as well. It is possible to have your 
paper moved into the session!

Note: regular papers can be submitted through the conference website. 
However, papers for the SCIP session should be submitted to the session 
organizers at SCIP at UGent.be. They will take care of the further submission.

About ICVGIP 2004

The Indian Conference on Computer Vision, Graphics and Image Processing 
(ICVGIP) is being organized every two years since 1995 by premier 
academic institutions and Research and Development laboratories. The 
objective of the conference is to bring together researchers in the 
academic institutions and R&D Laboratories working in the above fields 
and to use this as a forum to exchange views and ideas in these topics 
of current research.

All information regarding the conference can be found at the conference
