Thematic Sessions

Proposals to organize Thematic Session within VipIMAGE 2009 are mostly
welcome.
The organizers of the selected thematic sessions will be included in
the conference scientific committee and will have a reduced
registration fee. They will be responsible for the dissemination of
their thematic session, may invite expertise researches to have
invited keynotes during their session and will participate in the
review process of the submitted contributions.
Proposals for Thematic Sessions should be submitted by email to the
conference co-chairs (tavares from fe.up.pt, rnatal from fe.up.pt)

Publications

The proceedings book will be published by the Taylor & Francis Group,
as happened with VipIMAGE 2007 (ISBN: 9780415457774).
The organizers will encourage the submission of extended versions of
the accepted papers to related International Journals; in particular
for special issues dedicated to the conference.
One possibility already confirmed is the International Journal for
Computational Vision and Biomechanics (IJCV&B).
As what happened with VipIMAGE 2007, the organizers will also propose
the publishing of a book by SPRINGER (ISBN: 978-1-4020-9085-1), under
the Computational Methods in Applied Sciences series, with invited
works from the most important ones presented in conference.

Important dates

• Deadline for Thematic Sessions proposals: January 15, 2009
• Submission of extended abstracts: March 15, 2009
• Lectures and Final Papers: June 15, 2009

We are looking forward to see you in Porto next year.
