The next issue, PSIVT 2007, will be held in Santiago, Chile, at the Catholic University. Santiago hosted many large conferences in the past, and we would consider PSIVT 2007 as an opportunity to introduce this region to the image and video community. Santiago is Chile's capital. It has a population of about 5.5 million people and is one of Latin America's most sophisticated metropolitan areas, with a good balance between modern infrastructure and elegant 18th century Spanish Architecture. The city is also considered to be one of the most diverse and rich cultures to be found in South America. See more in http://www.santiago.cl
This new symposium provides a forum for presenting and exploring the newest research and development in image and video technology by discussing the possibilities and directions in this field, a place where both academic research and industrial activities are presented and meet for mutual benefit. The symposium combines a conference with an exhibition (showing the latest products in image and video technology), and offers also tutorials, a show of digital art, demonstrations and tours to industrial sites.
The symposium brings together technical issues, theory and practice, artistic and consumer innovations, and invites researchers, artists, developers, educators, performers, and practitioners of image and video technology from the Pacific Rim and around the world. There is PSIVT best paper awards for submitted conference papers, and a PSIVT Innovation Prize and special recognitions for products shown at the exhibition. The conference program includes plenary talks and sessions of technical presentations of reviewed papers.
