2019 IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence

IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence

December 6-9, 2019 Xiamen, China


IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence for Multimedia Signal and Vision Processing (IEEE CIMSIVP)

Constructive understanding of computational principles of image, multimedia, signal and visual information processing, perception and cognition is one of the most fundamental challenges of contemporary science. Deeper insight into such computational intelligence helps to advance intelligent systems research to achieve robust performance. Implementing integrated principles in artificial systems may help us achieve better, faster and more efficient intelligent systems. The Symposium will address theory and applications of non-traditional computational intelligence approaches in image, multimedia, signal and vision processing.


  • Theoretical approaches and modeling in computational vision
  • Neuronal mechanisms of visual processing
  • Low level vision and its relationship to biological machinery
  • Artificial learning systems for image and information processing and evidential reasoning for recognition
  • Intelligent search in communications networks
  • Secure and block-chain-based approach to biological vision
  • Deep and recurrent learning-based approach to biological vision
  • Modeling issues in biological artificial networks and agent-oriented computing architectures
  • Perception of shape, shadows, poses, color and illumination in object recognition
  • Tracking for inferring shapes and 3D motions
  • Active visual perception, attention and robot vision
  • Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) studies of visual segmentation and perception
  • Application of computational vision in areas of:

    • Automated target identification and acquisition systems in defense and industry
    • Biomedical imaging analysis
    • 3D photography
