VISUAL 2018 - The Third International Conference on Applications and Systems of Visual Paradigms

June 24, 2018 - June 28, 2018

VISUAL 2018: Call for Papers

Visual paradigms were developed on the basis of understanding the brain’s and eye’s functions.  They spread over computation, environment representation, autonomous devices, data presentation, and software/hardware approaches. The advent of Big Data, high speed images/camera, complexity and ubiquity of applications and services raises several requests on integrating visual-based solutions in cross-domain applications.

VISUAL 2018, The Third International Conference on Applications and Systems of Visual Paradigms, continues the inaugural event in putting together complementary domains were visual approaches are considered in a synergetic view.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

All topics and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.
