IPSJ Transactions on Computer Vision and Applications (CVA) “http://www.am.sanken.osaka-u.ac.jp/CVA/” is organizing a Special Issue on Omnidirectional Vision, Camera Networks and Non-classical Cameras. The aim of the special issue is to bring together researchers interested in camera networks and omnidirectional vision including novel imaging and projection systems, catadioptric systems and computational photography. Contributions are sought on new and original research on any aspect of omnidirectional vision and camera networks, including novel sensor design, panoramic vision applications, scalable algorithms for large-scale camera networks, and computational photography. These studies remain very active research fields to overcome the limitation of classical/existing sensors. The sought contributions include extended and improved versions of papers presented at the 2009 Workshop on Omnidirectional Vision, Camera Networks, and Non-classical Cameras (OMNIVIS 2009) but also any other high quality, unpublished research results on the themes of this special issue.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Omnidirectional cameras

Non-classical sensors

Large- (>1000) and medium-scale (10-1000) camera networks

Submission instruction:

Manuscripts must be submitted in PDF format through the online submission system. All accepted manuscripts must be formatted using the LaTeX system with the IPSJ journal format. The authors are responsible for preparing the formatted version. More detailed instructions for paper submission are available on the IPSJ web site:


The review process follows the IPSJ journal rules. Notification of acceptance will be sent by email. After receiving notification of acceptance, the authors must prepare the camera-ready file versions formatted in the LaTeX system with the IPSJ journal format. The authors may proofread the manuscript once before publication.

- Online Manuscript Submission -

*If you have submitted your work to OMNIVIS2009, please identify your OMNIVIS paper ID in the "Adittional Information" text box when you submit the manuscript. If you have not, you can omit this.
