Summary and Info
The two volume set LNCS 4841 and LNCS 4842 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third International Symposium on Visual Computing, ISVC 2007, held in Lake Tahoe, NV, USA in November 2007. The 77 revised full papers and 42 poster papers presented together with 32 full and 5 poster papers of 6 special tracks were carefully reviewed and selected from more than 270 submissions. The papers cover the four main areas of visual computing: vision, graphics, visualization, and virtual reality. There 6 additional special tracks address issues such as intelligent algorithms for smart monitoring of complex environments, object recognition, image databases, algorithms for the understanding of dynamics in complex and cluttered scenes, medical data analysis, and soft computing in image processing. The papers of this volume are organized in topical sections on motion and tracking, segmentation, feature extraction, classification, intelligent algorithms for smart monitoring of shape/recognition, image databases, soft computing in image processing, and posters.
