[visionlist] IGS2019 Call for Posters

International Geometry Summit
2019 – Call for Posters

17-21 June 2019, Vancouver – Canada



On 2019, the
IGS2019 International Geometry Summit features 4 major conferences in Computer
Graphics and applications

SPM – Solid and Physical

SIAM/GD Computational Geometric

SMI – Shape Modelling

GMP- Geometric Modelling and

IGS2019 seeks poster submissions, which describe recent work,
highly relevant results of work in progress, or successful systems and
applications, in all areas related to

solid and physical modelling

computational geometric design

shape modelling and analysis

geometric modelling and processing

Presenting a
poster is an important way to get feedback on work that has not yet been
published. Poster presentations will be an integral part of IGS2019, with a
joint poster session for interactive discussion between presenters and
attendees, plus a fast-forward presentation track where authors will orally
present a brief summary of their work to all IGS2019 attendees. We require at
least one presenter per accepted poster to attend IGS2019 or one of its 4


submissions must be in English and include authors names, affiliation, and
contact. The submission must be in the form of a two/four-page abstract, as a
PDF file with embedded fonts, and must be formatted according to the LATEX
guidelines available at the following URL


Poster abstracts must be submitted by
email to igs2019poster@gmail.com Additional material is not mandatory and can
be shared as a DropBox link or sent by using common FTP services.

Final posters
must be in portrait format with a maximum size given by the A0 standard (841 x
1189 mm, or 33.1 x 46.8 in).

abstracts will be included in the Poster proceedings.

[visionlist] Photo of Jack Nachmias enclosed

Hi Everyone- Here is a photo to add to the Jack Nachmias collection. It is from the late 1980s outside the Gleitman home on the occasion of changing of the chairmanship at Penn from Bob Rescorla to Jack. With Jack in the photo is Henry Gleitman and myself.
Photographer was Susan Rakowitz.

[visionlist] VSAC 2019 in Leuven: call for submissions

[visionlist] Why publish in the Journal of Perceptual Imaging?

We are delighted to invite you to submit your work to the new Journal of Perceptual Imaging (JPI).   JPI is an open-access, online publication, devoted to applied and fundamental research at the intersection of imaging and human vision, perception and cognition.

The journal focuses on perceptual and cognitive approaches to a wide range of  imaging applications and technologies, and welcomes experimental, computational, theoretical,  and survey papers. The goal is to be a source for multidisciplinary papers at the intersection of  perception, imaging. and art, and for papers that are considered to be outside the scope of more narrowly-focused journals.  

The inaugural issue has recently been published.  These papers explore human spatial/temporal perception, computational photography, image quality models and applications, augmented reality, and color enhancement for color deficient users.  A flyer about JPI and this first issue is attached below.

Why publish in JPI?  

Your research is at the intersection of imaging and  human vision, perception, or cognition

You’re looking for an open source journal

You want your work to be reviewed by multidisciplinary experts

You want to publish your work in a peer-reviewed journal and also present it at HVEI or one of the other IS&T conferences

You have presented a paper at a conference (e.g., HVEI, VSS, ECVP) and want to expand it into a full-length journal article

You want your paper to be read by an audience interested a wide range of topics related to human perception and cognition.

Click here to submit your manuscript to JPI.

Please send your comments or questions to us at: jpieditors@imaging.org

Looking forward to hearing from you!
