Dear Owner of robotics-worldwide listserv and members of the list:

IPCV annual conferences have always attracted a large number of
paper submissions from the robotic community. The conference
IS NOT interested in receiving papers that address the mechanical
aspects of robots but instead is interested in papers that discuss
novel methodologies that address the vision part of robots (and/or
multi-sensory data fusion). One of the two main keynote speakers
of the conference is Dr. Firouz Naderi (Head, NASA Mars Exploration
Program/2000-2005 and Associate Director, Project Formulation &
Strategy, Jet Propulsion Lab, CalTech/NASA). Firouz was the chief
architect of Mars Rover ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_rover ).
The other main keynote speaker is Prof. Lotfi Zadeh (UC Berkeley)
whose methods (fuzzy logic and its variations) have already been
adopted in most robots.

IPCV conference is listed among the Top-Ranked conferences
according to Microsoft Academic Search of "Top-ranked Conferences":
http://academic.research.microsoft.com/ (receiving a high level
of citations by the research community).

Due to numerous requests, we have extended the paper submission
deadline to Aptil 6, 2010 for the members of this list.
We would be most grateful if you would share this announcement
with the members of your list.
Thank you - Members of Steering Committee, IPCV/WORLDCOMP.
                 LAST  CALL  FOR  PAPERS

in the conference proceedings (as well as consideration for
various journal special issues and book projects). Abstract
submissions (one/two-page) will be considered for poster
presentations and one/two-page publication in the proceedings.

The proceedings will be indexed in Inspec / IET / The Institute
for Engineering & Technology, DBLP / Computer Science Bibliography,
and others.)

SCOPE: Topics of interest include, but are not limited to,
the following: 
Applications of robotics in the areas including: security, medicine,
remote sensing, industrial inspection, nondestructive evaluation
(or NDE) + stereo vision + motion and tracking algorithms +
real-time image sequence processing + scene and object modeling +
image feature extraction + mathematical morphology + mosaic
methods + image registration and fusion techniques + object
recognition + active robot vision + cognitive and biologically
inspired robot vision + and novel case studies.

Featured keynote speakers for 2010 are (this is a partial list;
there are 22 other keynotes/invited talks):

Submissions will be evaluated for originality, significance,
clarity, impact, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed
by two experts in the field. The referees' evaluations will
then be reviewed by one member of the program committee who
will recommend a decision to the chair of the track that
the paper has been submitted to. The chair will make the
final decision.

Submissions must be in either MS doc (but not docx) or pdf
formats and should be uploaded to the evaluation web site at:
At this time, all reasonable typesetting formats are
acceptable (later, the authors of accepted papers will be
asked to follow a particular typesetting format to prepare
their final papers for publication.)

Full paper submissions are expected to be about 5 to 7
pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12.

Abstract/Poster submissions are expected to be 1 to 2
pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12.

The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be
limited to 7 (IEEE style) pages for full papers and 2
(IEEE style) pages for abstracts/posters. Papers must not
have been previously published or currently submitted for
publication elsewhere. The first page of submissions should
include: title of the paper, name, affiliation, postal address,
and email address for each author. The first page should also
identify the name of the Contact Author and a maximum of 5
topical keywords that would best represent the content of
the paper.

All accepted papers will be published in the respective
conference proceedings (in both, printed book/ISBN form as
well as online). The proceedings will be indexed in Inspec /
IET / The Institute for Engineering and Technology, DBLP /
Computer Science Bibliography, and others.) The printed
proceedings will be available for distribution on site at
the conference.

In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected
authors will later be invited to submit extended versions of
their papers for publication in a number of research books
proposed with various publishers (such as, Springer, Elsevier,
IOS, ...). Also, many chairs of sessions and workshops will
be forming journal special issues to be published after the
