Call for Papers

We invite you to submit articles for consideration on a wide range of topics
broadly related to the 2012 International Workshop on Information Fusion in
Computer Vision for Concept Recognition (IFCVCR 2012), to be held in conjunction
with the 12th European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV 2012), on Oct 12, 2012,
in Firenze, Italy.

Since the last decade large attention has been paid to the methods of recognition
of visual concepts both in image and video documents.  In visual scenes, the
concept is translated as objects and actions/activities of the latter and also
of the context in which these activities are performed. Therefore, machine
learning approaches have received increasing importance for the building of
object models and decision schemes in the whole task of recognition.

Furthermore, the recent advances of the community in this field show that the
concept recognition passes through aggregation of multiple sources of information.
Visual information can benefit from additional cues extracted from audio or text,
involving integration of speech recognition, user-contributed information (e.g.
tags, tweets), viewer affective response, social media analysis, but as well as
of information recorded from additional sensors such as geo-taggers or GPS. Hence
the primary problem consists in fusion of multiple multi-modal information cues.
This problem is of importance in an actual information context as fusion often
means "dimensionality reduction" which is of primarily importance for large scale
information mining.
