Call for Papers

The International Conference on Digital Image Computing: Techniques and Applications (DICTA) is the main Australian Conference on computer vision, image processing, pattern recognition, and related areas. DICTA was established in 1991 as the premier conference of the Australian Pattern Recognition Society (APRS). DICTA 2017 is technically cosponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR). All papers presented at the conference will be included in IEEE Xplore digital library.

Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Image coding and processing
  • Shape and texture analysis
  • Surveillance, Defence and industrial applications
  • Remote sensing and spectral imaging
  • Astronomical image analysis
  • Statistical and structural pattern recognition
  • Machine learning
  • Computer vision
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Biomedical and e-health applications
  • Content-based image retrieval and image databases
Paper Submission Deadline: 9th July, 2017 21st July 2017.
Review Notification: 1st September, 2017.

Authors are invited to submit papers of up to 8 pages according to the guidelines on the conference website. Each paper will go through double-blinded peer review. It is a condition of publication that each paper is presented at the conference. Each accepted paper must be registered by an author before the early registration deadline to avoid withdrawal from the conference proceedings and technical programme.

Call for Special Sessions

Prospective organizers of Special Sessions should submit proposals with the following information in one PDF file to contact@dictaconference.org:

  • Title
  • Motivation, the novelty of the topic, relevance to DICTA 2017 topics, or any possible multi/inter-disciplinary flavour
  • Short biography of the organizers
  • List of five (5) contributed papers (including titles, authors, contact information of the corresponding author, and a short abstract).

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic and on the qualifications of the organizers and of the authors of the contributed papers as well. The number of the papers contributed from the organizers should not be more than two.
Upon acceptance of the special session proposal, the contributed papers will be submitted in the same format as regular papers.

Special Session Proposals Deadline: 9th Jun, 2017.
Notification of Acceptance of the Special Session: 23rd Jun, 2017.
Submission for Approved Special Sessions Deadline: 9th July, 2017 21st July 2017.

The papers in each accepted Special Session will undergo the same review process as the other regular papers. It is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that their Special Session papers meet DICTA 2017 quality standards. In case a paper in a Special Session does not meet the expected quality, it will be rejected and an effort will be made to draw papers from the regular submission process to fill in the gap. If too many papers for a given Special Session are not accepted in the review process and we are unable to find suitable substitutes from the regular review pool, the Special Session may be cancelled.

Call for Tutorials

Prospective organizers of Tutorials (about 3-4 hours including breaks) should submit proposals with the following information in one PDF file to contact@dictaconference.org:

  • Tutorial title
  • Proposers’ names, titles, affiliations and primary contact email
  • Short bio (max 2 paragraphs) for each organizer, including pointers to relevant publications and experiences.
  • Motivation or justification for having the tutorial, and explanations why the proposed tutorial would be beneficial to DICTA community.
  • Course description that includes topics that will be covered, along with a brief outline and work distribution in case of multiple presenters.
  • Anticipated target audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) as well as expected number of attendees.
Tutorial Proposal Submission Deadline: 25th July, 2017.
