 CALL FOR PAPERS
 WORKSHOP ON CONCEPTUAL DESCRIPTIONS FROM IMAGES
 Fourth European Conference on Computer Vision
 Cambridge, UK
 19th April 1996

An international workshop on `Conceptual Descriptions from Images'
will be held at the University of Cambridge on April 19th, following
ECCV'96. This activity is linked to the ECVNet working group of the
same name ECVNet.

WORKSHOP ISSUES
The workshop aims to stimulate collaborative research within the AI
subfields of computer vision, natural language, and spatio-temporal
reasoning, working towards the goal of deriving meaningful
descriptions of scene content. Most current work in computer vision
develops automated techniques that extract information from images
without high-level knowledge of what is being seen or consideration of
the high-level goals of intelligent visual agents. However, to deal
with real-world visual tasks, it seems that contextual knowledge of
some sort is required. The issues we want to address involve
questioning what representation and reasoning is required for such
tasks. In particular, for many visual application systems (for
example, advanced visual surveillance, multimedia and geographic
information systems, even automated driving) there is a general need
to generate conceptual descriptions of objects and their behaviour
from images. Papers should address this central theme.

Research topics that address the issues of representing visual
knowledge and processing images to obtain conceptual descriptions
include:

 o Context-based vision.
 o Integration of vision and natural language.
 o Spatial and temporal reasoning in images.
 o Representation and control of visual behaviours.

In addition to presenting original research, participants are asked to
address the following questions:

 o How does your work draw upon, differ from, refine or extend
 existing computer vision, natural language, and AI approaches?
 What are the limitations and assumptions of your approach?
 o How should domain knowledge be represented? What is your
 underlying knowledge representation and reasoning formalism
 and what issues have motivated your choice?
 o What are the open questions?


ATTENDANCE
It is intended that between 30 and 50 people will attend the workshop.
All workshop participants are expected to register for the main ECCV
conference.

Papers must be a maximum of 30 pages. Title, abstract, figures and
references must be included within this length limit. Four copies
