Dear Biomch-L readers,

The vision list described below often contains information of relevance to
kinematics and geometry related topics.

Subject: Welcome to Vision-List!
From: Vision-List moderator Phil Kahn

The INTERNET host site for the Vision List is Vision-List@ADS.COM for list
contributions and Vision-List-Request@ADS.COM for undistributed correspon-
dence. The Vision List is also distributed as the COMP.AI.VISION newsgroup.

As the moderator, I am interested in stimulating exchanges on research
and other topics of significance to the vision community. Here is some
information which describes the List and related services.

* PLEASE check to see if you have access to the Vision List via the
* comp.ai.vision newsgroup. If you do, please access the List via the
* newsgroup feed and let me know so that I can remove you from the master
* List. This greatly reduces required net bandwidth and makes things easier.


If you have problems sending messages to the list, questions about
technical details of the list distribution, or the like, send mail to
Vision-List-Request@ADS.COM and we will respond personally to your query.

PLEASE DO NOT send your request to be added to/deleted from the list to
Vision-List@ADS.COM. If you do, it may be automatically redistributed as
an article and appear in thousands of mailboxes around the world. Always
send these requests to the -Request address. [This is similar to the dis-
tinction between LISTSERV@HEARN.BITNET and Biomch-L@HEARN.BITNET -- HJW].

Submissions & Release Format

To submit an article to Vision-List, simply send it to:


Submissions to the list are currently being delivered in a single
batch mailing about once a week and more often as needed. Caution:
the list moderator does not always edit the incoming messages before
they are redistributed. During those weeks, everything operates
automatically, with the attendant advantages and pitfalls. (If you
fall into one of those pits, please send me mail at
Vision-List-Request and we'll do our best to fix things up.)

The following details may help you in formatting and choosing
appropriate titles for your list submissions. Within a single release
of Vision-List, the format consists of an initial identifying header,
a list of topics covered in that release, and then each message separated
by dashed lines (please avoid the use of dashed lines starting in column
1 in your submissions: they play havoc with most autodigesters in the
networld). Most of the header information is automatically removed from
each submission at release time. When the software is working correctly,
only "Date:", "From:", and "Subject:" appear.

Archives & Services

Backissues of the Vision List Digest and some public domain software
and imagery is available via anonymous FTP.

To access the Vision List archives from anonymous FTP:
1) FTP to ADS.COM (use if this doesn't work)
2) Login name is `anonymous' [N.B.: lower case -- HJW]
3) Once you're logged on, change directory (cd) to

* Backissues of the Vision List Digest may be found in

* Azriel Rosenfeld's Computer Vision bibliographies from 1984-present

* Public domain software (shareware) may be found in

* Imagery may be found in pub/VISION-LIST-ARCHIVE/IMAGERY

** ** ** ** ** **

The list is intended to embrace discussion on a wide range of vision
topics, including physiological theory, computer vision, machine
vision and image processing algorithms, vision techniques to support
robot navigation and spatial representation, artificial intelligence
and neural network techniques applied to vision, industrial
applications, robotic eyes, implemented systems, ideas, profound
thoughts -- anything related to vision and its automation is fair

For those wishing to contribute to the archives with shareware,
imagery, or other good stuff of general interest to the community,
please contact me at Vision-List-Request@ADS.COM .

I hope you enjoy Vision-List!
