Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

Scope

The PANORAMA Special Session held during the VISAPP 2014 conference will focus on technologies that advance the acquisition, processing, analysis, and presentation of multi-view, multi-source, and multi-modal images and video. The name PANORAMA refers to the three concepts of Ultra Wide Imaging, and Content- and Context-aware imaging, which reflect the move from “single-view imaging” towards “multi-view imaging” in various domains such as Healthcare, Broadcasting, and Surveillance.

Scope

Visual perception is a fundamental step for robotic systems. Vision algorithms are used by robotic platforms to accomplish tasks such as navigating the environment and grabbing and manipulating specific objects. However, visual detection and recognition is often affected by limitations like occlusions and viewpoint changes.
"Active vision" refers to the possibility of improving visual sensing by collecting information from sensors that can be conveniently moved in space, so as to acquire 3D data, to better deal with occlusions, and to establish relationships between the elements present in the environment.

Scope

According to UNESCO, the intangible cultural heritage (ICH) is the mainspring of humanity's cultural diversity and its maintenance is a guarantee for continuing creativity. However, ICH’s creations are typically transmitted orally or by gestures and are modified over a period of time. Hence, there is a need to properly safeguard certain elements of ICH. Recent technological advances in ICT can significantly contribute towards this task: multisensory capture technologies, novel multimodal data fusion techniques, semantic media analysis and interpretation approaches for the documentation of ICH, interactive learning and environments, etc. The aim of this special session is to focus on such ICT-based modeling techniques, applications and tools for analysis, indexing, knowledge retrieval and valorization through educational scenarios of ICH content.
