General Information

Update Oct. 18/05: The top 15 papers from CRV 2005 are going to be published in a special issue of the Journal of Image and Vision Computing. We are looking forward to making similar arrangements for this year's CRV.

General information about the conference, accomodations, transportation, registration fees, and when early registration is, available at the CRV registration website.

Registration for CRV2006 requires registration online and then paying by credit card (by fax or telephone) or by paying by cheque (drawn on a Canadian bank in Canadian funds). Sorry, we do not accept bank transfers as these are quite expensive to process. Registration is not complete until we receive your payment.

We are sponsored by the Canadian Image Processing and Pattern Recognition Society (CIPPRS) and endorsed by the International Association of Pattern Recognition. The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society in paper format and on-line. The proceedings will be automatically archived into the IEEE Computer Society's digital library and the IEEE's XPlore and IEL digital libraries (giving them long-term worldwide visibility). The proceedings are also indexed through the INSPEC indexing service.

Invited Speakers

Author Submissions

Papers are invited in English only. The length of the papers should be limited to eight double-column pages. Style files for latex and Word are available below. Submissions (in pdf, ps or doc format) are to be done electronically through the electronic conference submission webpage . Please adhere to the page limitations (8 pages with 2 additional pages at $250CDB per page). Submissions should be in the required format as the time between acceptance of your paper and submission of the final draft to IEEE is about 1-2 weeks. Finally, all PDF submissions must embed all fonts. Failure to adhere to this requirement will result in automatic rejection.

All papers will be thoroughly reviewed by the Program Committee. The accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, a cd copy of which will be distributed at the conference. The proceedings will also be made available on-line through the IEEE digital libraries. IEEE will hold the paper copyright (you will have to sign a form agreeing to this when your paper is accepted).

Call for Papers

The Canadian Conference on Computer and Robot Vision (CRV2006) is a single-track conference consisting of high quality, previously unpublished papers, presented either orally or as a poster. Only full papers will be considered, no (extended) abstracts please. Contributions are sought on any aspect of computer vision, robot vision, robotics, medical imaging, image processing or pattern recognition, including but not restricted to the following topics:

The conference provides an excellent environment for interdisciplinary interaction as well as for networking of students and scientists in computer vision, robotic vision, robotics, image understanding and pattern recognition. In addition to regular sessions, there will be also 3 invited speakers. There will be 2 awards: one for the best regular paper and one for the best student paper (the student must be the first author).

CRV2006 will be held in conjunction with
GI2006 (Graphics Interface) and AI2006 (Artificial Intelligence). For a single registration fee, participants can attend presentations at any of AI/GI/CRV conferences. Fees to attend all three conferences are the same. Proceedings of the other conferences can be purchased at the conference.

The Workshop on Video Processing for Security. For more information, please check the workshops web site.

Registration is available on-line at the following address: This conference promotes participation of students by significantly reducing the student registration fee. There is also a reduction in registration fees for CIPPRS and IAPR members. CIPPRS welcomes members from all countries.
