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 progress in hardware/software make affordable the use of RBG (visible) and non-visible image capturing sensors. This has stimulated a new use of these devices to solve difficult visual problems in engineering applications. Examples include identification of evacuation processes, automation in construction, inspection of constructions (airports, tunnels), protection of cultural heritage, environmental monitoring (land management, sea monitoring), earthquake monitoring, surveillance, and industrial processes both for products’ quality assurance and minimization of industrial working hazards. This special session invites paper coming from academia and the engineering industry to present their latest research findings, ideas, developments and applications in the wide area of computer vision and remote sensing towards complex applications. Papers from research projects in the these areas are welcome.

Scope

Nowadays, researchers are working on the development of innovative Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) systems, based on virtual/augmented/mixed reality (VR/AR/MR) techniques. The main goal is to obtain a natural interaction with such systems, thus a HCI that mimics as much as possible real life experience. However, many issues are still preventing to obtain a real natural HCI, mainly due to the fact that there is a gap between efficient Computer Vision techniques and their effective application in VR systems. The scope of this special session is to bring together researchers, from both industry and academia, which present novel and robust Computer Vision techniques to be used to implement effective systems for the natural interaction of the users in HCI systems.
