Workshop 2006 on
Computation Intensive Methods for Computer Vision

12th May 2006 in Graz, Austria,

in conjunction with ECCV 2006

Paper submission deadline:
13th February, 2006


Vision data represent huge technical challenges to computer interpretation because of:

Addressing the first challenge adequately often requires complex modelling which in turn requires computation intensive implementation, which in turn conflicts with meeting the latter challenge.
This one-day workshop, will bring together researchers to address computational issues that arise in the analysis of computer vision data. It is organized through the Network of Excellence MUSCLE. The objectives of the workshop are to:

General Topics of Interest

There will be invited and contributed talks and a round-table discussion on future directions. Paper submissions for contributed talks are sought in the areas of the following topics as they relate to vision data analysis:


The workshop will start at 9:30 am
Session 1: Grids and Distributed Computing

10:50 Coffee Break
Session 2: Content-Based Image Retrieval 12:35 Lunch
Session 3: Algorithms 15:40 Coffee Break
Session 4: Restoration and Segmentation
Workshop concludes at 17:15

Paper Submission

Two types of paper are sought: full papers and short papers for presentation as posters. Both completed work and work in progress are encouraged. Full papers should follow the length and format requirements for submission to the main ECCV conference (see Short papers should not exceed 3 pages, again using the format of the main ECCV meeting.
Submission should be made by sending a pdf version of the paper by e-mail to The name of the paper should be in the format CIMCV_FirstAuthorNameFirstAuthorSurname.pdf e.g. CIMCV_SimonWilson.pdf.
The final camera-ready paper should follow the same template as ECCV.
All accepted papers will be published on an accompanying ECCV 2006 Workshops CD/DVD, which will be given to all participants attending the workshops.
All inquiries should be addressed to
