Computer Vision, Graphics and Image Processing are some of the most actively pursued research area of information technology and there exists a large community exploring various aspects of this area in India. A common platform where the entire community could gather and exchange ideas would provide impetus to workers in the field to further research as well as give directions to R&D activities in the country.
The Indian Conference on Computer Vision, Graphics and Image processing (ICVGIP) is a biennial conference that brings the researchers and practitioners of these allied areas together under one umbrella. It has been organized in India since 1995 by leading academic institutions and research laboratories. The Indian Unit for Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence (IUPRAI), which is the Indian chapter of the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), is the coordinating association for the conference.
Over the years, ICVGIP has grown into an international event with paper submissions and active participation from not only the Asian region but also from around the world. Previous ICVGIPs were held at Delhi (1998), Bangalore (2000), Ahmedabad (2002), Kolkata (2004), Madurai (2006), Bhubaneswar (2008), and Chennai (2010).
The eighth edition of this highly successful series will be held at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, India from 16 to 19 December, 2012. The objective of this conference is to serve as a platform to bring together researchers to present original ideas and solutions, discuss new problems, and share information on state-of-the-art technologies.
