The sixth International Conference on Image Processing Theory, Tools and Applications (IPTA'16) will be held on December 12-15, 2016, in the exciting city of Oulu (Finland). Oulu, which is situated about 125 miles south of the Arctic Circle, is known as the capital of Northern Scandinavia and the city of technology.

IPTA'16 aims at bringing together international researchers, innovators, educators, and practitioners in image processing to share their achievements, exchange their experience and discuss future orientations. The conference provides an excellent forum to meet and discuss various important issues on image processing and applications.

The topics of interest for IPTA'16 include, but are not limited to

  • Image/video coding and compression

Image/video acquisition systems, Image/video coding and compression, image/video search and retrieval, image/video indexing and retrieval, Watermarking, algorithm-architecture adequacy in image processing.

  • Image/video processing

Image/video processing/analysis, filtering and restoration/enhancement, image/video segmentation, pattern recognition and shape analysis, color and multispectral processing, statistical learning methods for image classification, feature extraction/description/interpretation, 2D&3D modeling and processing.

  • Image formation, scanning, display and printing

Remote sensing, optimal imaging, synthetic-image systems, scanning and sampling, color reproduction, image representation and rendering, display and printing systems, image quality assessment.

  • Applications

Biological and medical imaging, biometric authentication, face and iris recognition, robotics applications, medical imaging systems technology, 3D interaction techniques and user assistance, geosciences and remote sensing, document image processing and analysis, multimodal rendering (visual, haptic, etc.), other applications.

Papers describing general surveys, image processing fundamental theory, specific medical imaging applications, advanced prototypes, tools and methodologies are welcomed. Extended papers describing original contributions are encouraged in the conference topics mentioned above. Special sessions papers, dedicated to different conference topics are also welcomed.


Authors are invited to submit their papers (6 pages max) through the conference online submission site: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/IPTA2016.


All accepted papers are expected to be included in IEEE Xplore and will be indexed by EI. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference, including IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, if the paper is not presented by the author at the conference.


A selection of the best papers from the conference will be invited to submit extended versions to a respected journal (to be confirmed).
