Visual Information Engineering 2008

The IET has organised 5 International conferences addressing the converging areas that together make the field of Visual Information Engineering.

These conferences bring together researchers, developers, creators, educators, and practitioners in image processing, machine vision, computer graphics, virtual and augmented environments, and visual communications to share their latest achievements and explore future directions and synergies in these exciting areas.

The 5th IET Visual Information Engineering 2008 Conference (VIE'08) addresses the fundamental elements of image, video and graphics research and development.

This years event focuses on the key technical areas include the growing convergence of computer graphics and computer vision/image processing which is an increasingly important area in commercial multimedia applications development. Recent research in visual information engineering has focused on investigating several interactions of state-of-the-art visual information retrieval, image/video-based modelling and rendering, image/video analysis, graphics, visualisation, animation, and synthetic image generation and manipulation. New opportunities for medical imaging and healthcare, virtual environments, motion analysis and tracking and event detection for surveillance are emerging that exploit the visual aspects of multimedia. At the same time, the growing convergence of computer graphics and computer vision/image processing which is an increasingly important area in commercial multimedia applications development. Finally, ensuring security, privacy and rights management in multimedia communications over such distributed and reconfigurable environments is of increased importance.

VIE 2008 is sure to provide the ideal opportunity for researchers, practitioners and educators in the VIE community to share results and advancements in a high quality, peer reviewed environment. Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings. The Conference Proceeding will be indexed by EI. Extended versions of VIE papers will be reviewed and considered for publication in Special Issues of the IET Image Processing, IET Computer Vision (formerly IEE Proceedings Vision, Image and Signal Processing) and the EURASIP journal on Image and Video Processing.

At the excellent Xi'an International Conference Center in Xi'an, China, this event will create an important networking forum in which academic and industrial participants can discuss the future of VIE technologies and the convergence of imaging technologies with other domains.
