       Special Issue on Recognition and Action for Scene Understanding

Scene Understanding has become a popular topic in Computer Science which
combines issues such as attention in cognitive systems, object detection
and recognition, global scene recognition and human sensing. Hence, it
involves joining efforts and sharing knowledge from different research
areas such as Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition, Machine Intelligence,
Software Engineering and Cognitive Sciences. Besides, it is closely
related to several emerging application areas (e.g., smart environments,
video surveillance, visual-based mobile robot navigation, wearable
sensors, and the detection and understanding of events and activities in
video data). This Special Issue is meant to bring together researchers
which address the problem of Scene Understanding from the perspective of
the Robotics and Computer Vision research communities. The topics of the
conference include, but are not limited to:

perceptual search and attention guidance in scenes,
multimodal perception,
spatio-temporal reasoning,
active spatial exploration,
object recognition from local features,
structure for object recognition,
3D object recognition,
object categorization,
conceptualization and scene classification,
grammars for objects and scenes,
objects in context: scenes and objects,
scene recognition without objects,
visual localization,
human behaviour understanding,
mobile robot navigation: mapping and visual SLAM,
smart environments: computational perception of human activities,
wearable sensors for visually impaired people

Authors are encouraged to submit their papers electronically by using
online manuscript submission at: http://www.jopha.net

All papers will be rigorously refereed and will undergo a competitive
selection process. Papers already submitted or presented in a Conference
may be submitted for this Special Issue provided the authors have obtained
significant new results or developed significant new methods over and
above what was already submitted or presented at a Conference.

Important Dates
Submission deadline:          December 20, 2011
Notification to authors:      March 20, 2012
Publication data (tentative): September, 2012
