Dear Biomch-L subscribers,

Yet another announcement of a conference on machine vision and
digital image analysis (cross-posted from sci.image.processing).
Closer to home this one (for most people).

**Announcement and Call for Papers : Videometrics II**

7-10 September 1993
Hynes Convention Center, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Videometrics II is part of SPIE's International Symposium on Optical
Tools for Manufacturing and Advanced Automation

The Symposium includes 28 Conferences on topics covering the above theme
including : sensor and controls for manufacturing, machine vision applications,
industrial optical sensing and metrology, optics, illumination and image
sensing for machine vision, and Videometrics.

The topics specifically covered by Videometrics II are the use of
computer vision techniques for dimensional metrology applications,
such as gauging, reverse engineering, accurate positioning, tracking,
and navigation of objects and robots.

Sessions will concentrate on the following areas, although papers on
other related topics are also encouraged :

* camera and system calibration
* robust algorithms and systems
* error sources and correction techniques
* target and edge measurement/digitizing to subpixel accuracy
* knowledge-based feature extraction and dimension measurement techniques
* surface object reconstruction and scene understanding
* accuracy and performance evaluation
* dynamic tracking in 3D
* successfully demonstrated system applications

Conference Chair : Sabry El-Hakim, NRC, Canada (

Cochairs : Armin Gruen, ETH, Switzerland; Mark Shortis, University of
Melbourne, Australia; Walt Snow, NASA Langley, USA; Glen Southworth,
Colarado Video, USA; Kam Wong, University of Illinois, USA.
