The 9th International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet Systems

The 9th International Conference on Signal Image Technology

Workshop on Evolutionary methods for Vision Systems (EVS2013)

Collocated with:
SITIS 2013, Kyoto, Japan, 2-5 December 2013

Scope of the workshop
The use of evolutionary methods to obtain a more effective and accurate vision system has recently been established as a cutting-edge professional forum for researchers, academics, practitioners, and industry professionals interested and/or engaged in the applications of vision systems. With that aim, this Workshop is being organized to provide opportunities for discussions and constructive dialogue among various stakeholders on the limitations of existing methods for vision system, innovative uses of emerging evolutionary approaches and technologies, and sharing and promotion of best practices, leading to the evolution, design and implementation of evolutionary vision system.

The Workshop will focus on the various evolutionary methods used for development of vision systems in the following context but not limited to:
Image processing: methods of improvement using evolutionary methods
Feature selection and feature extraction: emerging technologies, innovative uses evolutionary methods
Classification: various type of classifiers utilizing evolutionary methods, or part of
Bio inspired evolutionary algorithm: use in various vision systems such as robust robotics vision, pattern recognition, machine vision.

This Workshop is organized in the context of the 9th International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet Based Systems, December 2-5, Kyoto, Japan. The mission is to bring together researchers from diverse areas in a cross-disciplinary manner, to stimulate fresh ideas and encouraging multi-disciplinary work.

Important Dates

Submission deadline: September 23, 2013
Acceptance/Reject notification: October 19, 2013 
Camera-ready: October 27, 2013
Author Registration: October 27, 2013

Submission Guidelines
All submissions should be in IEEE conference style and PDF format. Papers may not exceed 8 pages. Two extra pages can be purchased. Paper submission will only be online via: Easy Chair ( )
The online system will be used to handle and process all papers and to prepare for the final proceedings. All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression by at least two reviewers. The organizers will examine the reviews and make final paper selections. More details about the submission process can be found on the conference website.

Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published by IEEE Computer Society and referenced in IEEE explore and major indexes. The proceedings will be available at the conference. Extended version of selected accepted papers will be considered for publication in major journals.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop. Registration must be done on the SITIS website at the time when the author sends the camera-ready copy of the accepted paper to the workshop chair. Workshop registration fee is determined by SITIS. A single registration for the workshop or the conference allows to attend both events.
