OCTOBER 29, 2008--With diverse applications ranging from crime prevention and detection, vehicle driver assistance and laparoscopic surgery to measuring the thickness of chocolate on biscuits, technological advances in image processing and computer vision affect almost every aspect of our lives, according to Prof. Brian Scotney, director of the University of Ulster's Computer Science Research Institute. The Research Institute last month hosted the 2008 International Machine Vision and Image Processing (IMVIP) Conference in Portrush, attracting theoreticians, practitioners, industrialists, and academics from the numerous related disciplines involved in the processing and analysis of image-based information. Among those present were delegates from Ireland and UK, Australia, Belarus, China, France, India, New Zealand, USA, and Venezuela. The conference proceedings are published by IEEE Computer Society and will be archived electronically through the IEEE Computer Science Digital Library (CSDL) and IEEE-Xplore. The proceedings will also be indexed through IEE INSPEC, EI (Compendex), and SCI (ISI). For more information, go to:http://news.ulster.ac.uk/releases/2008/3996.html
