ICONS 2015

The 10th International Conference on Systems will take place in Barcelona, Spain, from April 19 through April 24, 2015. The conference covers fundamentals on designing, implementing, testing, validating and maintaining various kinds of software and hardware systems. Several tracks are proposed to treat the topics from theory to practice, in terms of methodologies, design, implementation, testing, use cases, tools, and lessons learnt. Deadline for full paper submission: Nov 24, 2014.
Grey-level co-occurrence matrices (GLCM) have been on the scene for almost forty years and continue to be widely used today. We developed a method to improve accuracy and robustness against rotation of GLCM features for image classification. Co-occurrences are computed through digital circles as an alternative to the standard four directions. We use discrete Fourier transform normalization to convert rotation dependent features into rotation invariant ones. We tested or method on four different datasets of natural and synthetic images. Experimental results show that our approach is more accurate and robust against rotation than the standard GLCM features.

IMVIP 2014

The Irish Machine Vision and Image Processing conference (IMVIP 2014) will be hosted by the Intelligent Systems Research Centre (ISRC) at the University of Ulster, Magee from 27th-29th August 2014. IMVIP 2014 is the main conference of the Irish Pattern Recognition and Classification Society. The conference emphasises both theoretical research results and practical engineering experience in all areas of machine vision and image processing. Call for papers and additional information can be found at https://sites.google.com/site/imvip2014/. Please note that the deadline for submissions has been extended to Wednesday 14th May 2014.
