Image and video storage and retrieval continues to be one of the most exciting and fastest-growing research areas in the field of multimedia technology. However, opportunities for the exchange of ideas between different groups of researchers, and between researchers and potential users of image/video retrieval systems, are still limited. The International Conference on Image and Video Retrieval (CIVR) series of conferences was originally set up to illuminate the state of the art in image and video retrieval between researchers and practitioners throughout the world. This conference aims to provide an international forum for the discussion of challenges in the fields of image and video retrieval.
The 6th International Conference on Image and Video Retrieval (CIVR 2007) will take place in Amsterdam , the Netherlands during 9-11 July 2007, hosted by University of Amsterdam. Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, is a small city by European standards (population 750.000) but is one of the most charming and delightful towns of Europe. It possesses the largest historical inner city of Europe, with beautiful monumental buildings and an extensive web of canals. The city can easily be explored on foot: museums, theatres, shopping streets, monuments, open air markets and most other features of interest are generally within walking distance of one another. The city is famous for its 17th century canals: a boat trip along the canals is a special experience. Amsterdam is one of the leading cultural centers of Europe, with a high concentration of famous museums, including the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Anne Frank House. Other cultural attractions include the Diamantslijperijen (diamond cutting establishments) and the Rembrandt House.
CIVR2007 is seeking original high quality submissions addressing innovative research in the broad field of image and video retrieval. A unique feature of the conference is the high level of participation from practitioners. Applications papers and presentations suitable for a wide audience are therefore particularly welcome.
