Special Session on Low-Level Color Image Processing (APSIPA ASC 2009)

Color perception plays an important role in object recognition and scene
understanding both for humans and intelligent vision systems. Recent advances
in digital color imaging and computer hardware technology have led to an
explosion in the use of color images in a variety of applications including
medical imaging, content-based image retrieval, biometrics, watermarking,
digital inpainting, remote sensing, digital multimedia, visual quality
inspection, among many others. As a result, automated processing and analysis
of color images has become an active area of research, which is witnessed by
the large number of publications during the past two decades. The multivariate
nature of color image data presents new challenges for researchers and
practitioners as the numerous methods developed for single channel images are
often not directly applicable to multichannel images.
The goal of this special session is to bring together researchers and
practitioners working in the area of Color Image Processing. We are soliciting
original contributions, which address a wide range of theoretical and practical
issues related to the early stages of the Color Image Processing pipeline
including, but not limited to:

* Color Image Coding and Compression
* Color Image Quantization and Halftoning
* Color Image Filtering and Enhancement
* Color Morphology
* Color Edge Detection
* Color Image Segmentation
* Digital Camera Image Processing (Demosaicking, Zooming, Postprocessing, etc.)
* Multispectral Image Processing
* Applications and Future Trends

Prospective authors are invited to submit either long papers up to 10 pages in
length, or short papers up to 4 pages in length. The long papers will be for
the single-track oral presentation, whereas the short ones will be mostly for
poster presentation. In submitting a manuscript to APSIPA ASC, the authors
acknowledge that no paper substantially similar in content has been or will be
submitted to another conference during the review period. Paper submissions can
be made at https://splab.cs.kitami-it.ac.jp/apsipa2009/user/action.php

Submission deadline: April 30, 2009
Notification of acceptance: July 1, 2009
Camera-ready deadline: August 1, 2009
