About SSVM

SSVM is a biannual meeting within the area of Computer Vision and Image Analysis. SSVM focuses especially on multiscale analysis of image content, partial differential equations, geometric and level-set methods, variational methods, and optimization.
Contributions are in the form of full papers, 12 pages in Springer LNCS format including bibliography.

Conference topics include the following areas

  • 3D vision
  • Color enhancement
  • Compressed sensing
  • Convex and non-convex modeling
  • Cross-scale structure
  • Differential geometry and invariants
  • Image- and feature analysis
  • Imaging modalities
  • Implicit surfaces
  • Inpainting
  • Inverse problems in imaging
  • Level-set methods
  • Manifold-valued data processing
  • Mathematics of novel imaging methods
  • Medical imaging and other applications
  • Motion estimation and tracking
  • Multi-orientation analysis
  • Multi-scale shape analysis
  • Optical flow
  • Optimization methods in imaging
  • PDEs in image processing
  • Perceptual grouping
  • Registration
  • Restoration and reconstruction
  • Scale-space methods
  • Segmentation
  • Selection of salient scales
  • Shape from X
  • Stereo and multi-view reconstruction
  • Sub-Riemannian geometry
  • Surface modelling
  • Variational methods
  • Wavelets and image decomposition



Papers accepted for the conference will appear in the conference proceedings that will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The proceedings will be available at the conference. Prospective authors are invited to submit a full-length twelve-page paper electronically via the SSVM'19 Paper Submission Web Page. All papers will undergo a double-blind peer-review procedure. At the conference the papers will be presented as posters or talks.

Best student paper award

The conference will award a best student paper prize. Eligible are submissions whose first author had not yet obtained their Master’s degree by January 1, 2018 (note corrected date).
