6th Pacific-Rim Symposium on Image and Video Technology
October 28th - November 1st, 2013. Guanajuato, México.

The sixth Pacific-Rim Symposium on Image and Video Technology (PSIVT 2013) has been held in Guanajuato, México, from October 28th to November 1st, 2013.

PSIVT provides a forum for presenting and exploring the newest research and development in image and video technology by discussing the possibilities and directions in this field, and a place where both academic research and industrial activities are presented and meet for mutual benefit. It invites researchers, artists, developers, educators, performers, and practitioners of image and video technology from the Pacific Rim and around the world.

  The PSIVT 2013 proceedings of the main conference and workshops will be published by Springer-Verlag as volumes 8333 and 8334 in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science collection.

 Selected and extended papers, such as the award winning papers, will be invited to be published in a Journal Publication to be announced soon.

High-quality contributions from prospective authors were solicited in all aspects of image and video technology including, but not limited to:

  • Imaging and Graphics Hardware and Visualization
  • Image/Video Coding and Transmission
  • Image/Video Processing and Analysis
  • Image/Video Retrieval and Scene Understanding
  • Applications of Image and Video Technology
  • Biomedical Image Processing and Analysis
  • Biometrics and Image Forensics
  • Computational Photography and Arts
  • Computer and Robot Vision
  • Pattern Recognition
  • Video Surveillance

All papers were subject to a double-blind review process which was be carried out by at least three experienced researchers in the field, supervised by area chairs, also including a brief rebuttal at the end of the decision process. (As a guide: Previous issues of PSIVT all had an acceptance rate of about 40 percent.) Details on paper submission can be found in the authors page.

The best IAPR-PSIVT paper prize was awarded to:

"Wide-baseline Dense Feature Matching for Endoscopic Images"
Puerto-Souza, Gustavo (University of Texas at Arlington)
Mariottini, Gian-Luca (University of Texas at Arlington)

The best student paper prize was awarded to:

"Joint Dictionary and Classifier learning for Categorization of Images using a Max-margin Framework"
Löbel, Hans (Pontificia U. Católica de Chile)
Soto, Álvaro (Pontificia U. Católica de Chile)
Vidal, René (Johns Hopkins University)
Mery, Domingo (Pontificia U. Católica de Chile)
