CIR99 - Second UK Conference on Image Retrieval
25 - 26 February 1999
Forte Posthouse Hotel, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK
Building on the success of this first conference, the 1999 event again aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in the fast-growing area of image retrieval, to exchange information and gain some idea of the significance of developments in related disciplines.
This two-day event will consist of a mixture of submitted and invited papers covering both technical and human aspects of research and innovation in image retrieval. Our keynote speaker will be Dr Michael Swain from the Alta Vista development team at Compaq Computer Corporation, who will talk on image searching on the Web.

In view of these developments, members of the BSI Committee for standardisation in computer graphics are planning to organise some seminars on the State of the Art in Graphics Standards, which would cover the standards mentioned above and also new areas of work that are being planned by the Imaging and Graphics Business Team within ISO/IEC. In order to facilitate planning, we wish to judge the likely interest in such a series of seminars and also preferences for format and location. Readers are invited to respond to the questions below by e-mail or fax, to David Duce (D.A.Duce@rl.ac.uk, Fax: +44 (0) 1235 445385) by 18 December 1998.
