Proposals for Thematic Sessions should be submitted by email to the
conference co-chairs (tavares from fe.up.pt, rnatal from fe.up.pt).

Confirmed Thematic Sessions (not yet closed)

- Texture Image Analysis: Methods and Applications
- Processing and Classification of Satellite Imagery
- Small Animal Imaging: Trends and Techniques
- Imaging of Biological Flows: Trends and Challenges


The proceedings book is going to 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).
Following the success of VipIMAGE 2007, the organizers are going to
too edit a book to be published 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 the


"best paper award" and "best student paper award" are going to be
given to the author(s) of two papers presented at the conference,
selected by the Organizing Committee based on the best combined marks
from the Scientific Committee and Session Chairs.

Important dates

• Deadline for Thematic Sessions proposals: March 1, 2009 (extended)
