Charles Sturt Uni to Present International Imaging and Video Technology Forum in Sydney

A major international forum organised by Charles Sturt University will showcase research and careers in scientific imaging and video technology later this year in Sydney.

Charles Sturt is also a major sponsor of the 9th Pacific-Rim Symposium on Image and Video Technology (PSIVT) which will be held in Sydney from Monday 18 to Friday 22 November.

Previous biennial PSIVT have been held at Hsinchu, Taiwan (2006), Santiago, Chile (2007), Tokyo, Japan (2009), Gwangju, South Korea (2011), Singapore (2010), Guanajuato, Mexico (2013), Auckland, New Zealand (2015), and Wuhan, China (2017). 

Conference organiser Associate Professor in Computer Science Manoranjan Paul in the Charles Sturt School of Computing and Mathematics in Bathurst said, “The PSIVT is a premier biennial forum for researchers and practitioners who are contributing to theoretical advances and practical implementations in image and video technology.

“I’m also excited that at least 11 other Charles Sturt academics are involved in the organisation and running of this prestigious international conference.

“Image and video technology plays a major role in society today, and the field offers wonderful careers in a range of science, technology, engineering and medicine (STEM) disciplines now and into the future.”

Professor Paul won the Australian Computer Society (ACS) Digital Disruptor 2017 ‘ICT Researcher of the Year’ award.

The PSIVT will present high-quality contributions on all aspects of image and video technology, including:

  • Imaging and graphics hardware and visualisation
  • Image/video coding and transmission
  • Image/video processing and analysis
  • Image/video retrieval and scene understanding
  • Applications of image and video technology
  • Biomedical image processing and analysis
  • Biometrics and image forensics
  • Computational photography and arts
  • Computer and robot vision
  • Pattern recognition
  • Video surveillance

International keynote speakers include:

  • Associate Professor Lei Wang, (Group Leader of Visual Information Learning and Analysis in the School of Computing and Information Technology at the University of Wollongong, Australia): ‘Learning SPD-matrix-based Representation for Visual Recognition’.
  • Professor Thomas Bräunl, (Robotics and Automation Lab, in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Western Australia): ‘Cars: From Zero Emission to Zero Accidents?’.
  • Dr Yalin Zheng, (Reader in Ophthalmic Imaging; Eye and Vision Science at the Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease at the University of Liverpool, United Kingdom): ‘Advance Biomedical Imaging Technologies for Blindness’.
