Dear members of robotics-worldwide:

Robotics is an important topic within the scope of IPCV conference (but NOT
the mechanical aspects of robots). Please share the announcement below with
those who may be interested.  Thank you, Organizing Committee

                     CALL  FOR  PAPERS
          Paper Submission Deadline: March 31, 2011

   The 2011 International Conference on Image Processing,
         Computer Vision, and Pattern Recognition

               July 18-21, 2011, Las Vegas, USA

You are invited to submit a full paper for consideration. All accepted
papers will be published in the respective conference proceedings. The
proceedings will be indexed in Inspec / IET / The Institute for
Engineering & Technology, DBLP / Computer Science Bibliography, and
others.) In the past, all tracks of this federated conference have
also been included in EI Compendex/Elsevier. Like prior years, extended
versions of selected papers will appear in journals and edited research
books (a large number of book projects and journal special issues are
in the pipeline: Springer, Elsevier, BMC journals, ...)

Conference Web site:
This is the 15th annual offering of this conference.

The DBLP list of IPCV 2010 papers (last year's) appears at:
The web site of IPCV'11 is:


March 31, 2011:    Submission of papers (about 5 to 7 pages)
April 20, 2011:    Notification of acceptance (+/- 6 days)
May 7, 2011:       Final papers + Copyright/Consent + Registration
July 18-21, 2011:  The 2011 International Conference on Image Processing,
                   Computer Vision, and Pattern Recognition (IPCV'11)


Currently being prepared - The Academic sponsors of the last offering
of IPCV (2010) included research labs and centers affiliated
with (a partial list): University of California, Berkeley; University
of Southern California; University of Texas at Austin; Harvard
University, Cambridge, Massachusetts; Georgia Institute of Technology,
Georgia; Emory University, Georgia; University of Minnesota;
University of Iowa; University of North Dakota; NDSU-CIIT Green
Computing & Comm. Lab.; University of Siegen, Germany; UMIT, Austria;
SECLAB (University of Naples Federico II + University of Naples
Parthenope + Second University of Naples, Italy); National Institute
for Health Research; World Academy of Biomedical Sciences and
Technologies; Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia; International
Society of Intelligent Biological Medicine (ISIBM/PPPPPP); The
International Council on Medical and Care Compunetics; Eastern Virginia
Medical School & the American College of Surgeons, USA.


Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading
them to the evaluation web site at:  http://world-comp.org
Submissions must be uploaded by March 31, 2011 and they must be
in either MS doc (but not docx) or pdf formats (about 5 to 7
pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12). 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.) Papers must not have
been previously published or currently submitted for publication
The first page of the paper 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. Finally, the name of the
conference (ie, IPCV) that the paper is being submitted for
consideration must be stated on the first page.

The length of the final/Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be
limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases
of contradictory recommendations, a member of the conference
program committee will be charged to make the final decision
(accept/reject) - often, this would involve seeking help from
additional referees by using a double-blinded review process. In
addition, all papers whose authors included a member of the
conference program committee will be evaluated using the
double-blinded review process. (Essay/philosophical papers will
not be refereed but may be considered for discussion/panels).

All proceedings of IPCV will be published and indexed in:
Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology,
DBLP / CS Bibliography, and others. The printed proceedings
will be available for distribution on site at the conference.
In the past, all tracks of the federated congress have also been
included in EI Compendex/Elsevier.


IPCV conference is an important track of a federated research
conference. It is being held jointly (same location and dates)
with a number of other research conferences (WORLDCOMP).
WORLDCOMP is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer
science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate
to have 2,000 or more attendees from over 85 countries.

WORLDCOMP 2011 will be composed of research presentations, keynote
lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions,
and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote/tutorial/panel
speakers have included: Prof. David A. Patterson (pioneer/
architecture, U. of California, Berkeley), Dr. K. Eric Drexler
(known as Father of Nanotechnology), Prof. John H. Holland (known
as Father of Genetic Algorithms; U. of Michigan), Prof. Ian Foster
(known as Father of Grid Computing; U. of Chicago & ANL),
Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (pioneer/VR, U. of California, Berkeley),
Prof. Barry Vercoe (Founding member of MIT Media Lab, MIT),
Dr. Jim Gettys (known as X-man, developer of X Window System,
xhost; OLPC), Prof. John Koza (known as Father of Genetic
Programming, Stanford U.), Prof. Brian D. Athey (NIH Program
Director, U. of Michigan), Prof. Viktor K. Prasanna (pioneer,
U. of Southern California), Dr. Jose L. Munoz (NSF Program Director
and Consultant), Prof. Jun Liu (Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard U.),
Prof. Lotfi A. Zadeh (Father of Fuzzy Logic), Dr. Firouz Naderi
(Head, NASA Mars Exploration Program/2000-2005 and Associate
Director, Project Formulation & Strategy, Jet Propulsion Lab,
CalTech/NASA), and many other distinguished speakers. To get a
feeling about the conferences' atmosphere, see the 2010 delegates

According to "Microsoft Academic Search" (a Microsoft initiative)
all tracks of WORLDCOMP are listed as worldwide "Top-ranked
Conferences" (based on various metrics but mainly based on the
number of citations). You can access "Microsoft Academic Search" to
extract citation data for each individual track of worldcomp using
the following link: http://academic.research.microsoft.com/
As of March 4, 2011, the papers published in the proceeedings have
received 14,385 citations which is a higher citation than many
reputable journals in computer science.
