Description : This volume collects the papers accepted for presentation atMIRAGE 2009. TheMIRAGE conference is continuing to receive international recognition, with this year's presentations coming from 25 countries despite the large wor- wide ?nancial crisis. This time Asia submitted far fewer papers than previously and fewer than Europe. France provedto be the most active scienti?cally with a total of 16 submitted papers. Germany came second (10 submitted papers) and China third (8 papers). We received a total of 83 submissions and accepted 41 as oral presentations, over the three-day event. All papers were reviewed by three to four members of theProgramCommittee.The?nalselectionwasmadebytheConferenceChairs. At this point, we wish to thank the Program Committee and additional referees for their timely and high-quality reviews. We also thank the invited speakers Luc Van Gool, Frank Multon and Raquel Urtasun for kindly accepting to present very interesting talks. mirage 2009 was organizedbyinria Rocquencourt and took place atinria, Rocquencourt, close to Versailles. We believe that the conference proved to be a stimulating experience for all. March 2009 A. Gagalowicz W. Philips Organization Mirage 2009 was organized byinria and Ghent University.

Description : This book includes selected papers from VISIGRAPP 2007, the Joint Conference on Computer Vision and Computer Graphics, comprising two component conferences, namely, the International Conference on Computer Vision Theory and Applications (VISAPP) and the International Conference on Computer Graphics Theory and App- cations (GRAPP), held in Barcelona, Spain, during March 8–11, 2007. We received quite a high number of paper submissions: 382 in total for both conf- ences. We had contributions from more than 50 countries in all five continents. This confirms the success and global dimension of these jointly organized conferences. After a rigorous double-blind evaluation method, a total of 78 submissions were accepted as full papers. From those, 18 got selected for inclusion in this book. To ensure the sci- tific quality of the contributions, these were selected from papers that were evaluated with the highest scores by the VISIGRAPP Program Committee members and then they were extended and revised by the authors. Special thanks go to all contributors and re- rees, without whom this book would not have been possible. VISIGRAPP 2007 included four invited keynote lectures, presented by internati- ally recognized researchers. The presentations represented an important contribution to increasing the overall quality of the conference. We would like to express our - preciation to all invited keynote speakers, in alphabetical order: Jake K. Aggarwal (The University of Texas at Austin/USA), André Gagalowicz (INRIA/France), Wo- gang Heidrich (University of British Columbia/Canada), Mel Slater (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya/Spain).
Description : Sport technology has to be seen from the holistic, as well as inter- and transdisciplinary point of view. Product development requires close collaboration between engineers, athletes, sports scientists, and business managers. It requires an in-depth understanding of engineering disciplines, life and sport sciences, as well as economics. The Impact of Technology on Sport II has in its core precisely this philosophy and approach. It aims to provide a deeper insight into the current status of sports technology and to present recent developments in this area from the perspective of different disciplines, industrial practice, academia and athletes. This book brings together work from researchers around the world and, in particular from the Asia-Pacific region. Most sport technologies are covered, including equipment and materials in various ball sports (golf, cricket, baseball, soccer, tennis, etc.), water sports, athletics, winter sports, mountaineering, motor sports and martial arts. The different technological areas extend to design; dynamics, vibrations and control; aerodynamics; instrumentation and measurements; modelling, simulation and optimisation; biomechanics and human performance; sports medicine; coaching and sports education.
Description : Multimodal Video Characterization and Summarization is a valuable research tool for both professionals and academicians working in the video field. This book describes the methodology for using multimodal audio, image, and text technology to characterize video content. This new and groundbreaking science has led to many advances in video understanding, such as the development of a video summary. Applications and methodology for creating video summaries are described, as well as user-studies for evaluation and testing.
Description : As the disciplines of art, technology, and information science collide, computer graphics and multimedia are presenting a myriad of applications and problems to professionals and scholars in Computer Science, Information Science, Digital Art, Multimedia, Educational Technology, and Media Arts. Today's digital scholar can use Computer Graphics and Multimedia: Applications, Problems and Solutions as a tool to explore the vast parameters of the applications, problems, and solutions related to digital disciplines. Contributing authors include computer scientists, multimedia researchers, computer artists, graphic designers, and digital media specialists. The book has an extensive range of topics for the digital scholar who wants to discover and research other areas within the computer graphics and multimedia disciplines beyond their own.
Description : This book is a collection of carefully selected works presented at the Third International Conference on Computer Vision & Image Processing (CVIP 2018). The conference was organized by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of PDPM Indian Institute of Information Technology, Design & Manufacturing, Jabalpur, India during September 29–October 01, 2018. All the papers have been rigorously reviewed by the experts from the domain. This 2 volume proceedings include technical contributions in the areas of Image/Video Processing and Analysis; Image/Video Formation and Display; Image/Video Filtering, Restoration, Enhancement and Super-resolution; Image/Video Coding and Transmission; Image/Video Storage, Retrieval and Authentication; Image/Video Quality; Transform-based and Multi-resolution Image/Video Analysis; Biological and Perceptual Models for Image/Video Processing; Machine Learning in Image/Video Analysis; Probability and uncertainty handling for Image/Video Processing; and Motion and Tracking.
