This volume contains the proceedings of the Fifth Edition of International Conference on Computer Vision Theory and Applications (VISAPP 2010), organized by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Communication and Control (INSTICC) and Technical Co-Sponsorship by the Workflow Management Coalition(WfMC). The field of imaging and modelling overlaps the research areas of computer vision and computer graphics. Applications are found in different areas like robotics, industrial design, computer vision, computer animation, human factors and engineering, video surveillance, medicine, visual communications, and imaging sciences in general. Since its first edition in 2006, VISAPP has been bringing together researchers from all over the world to share new knowledge, insights, and experimental results in these areas. The conference focused on four different areas related to computer vision, from Image Processing to Image Understanding including Image Analysis and Stereo
Vision. All tracks focus on real world applications and highlight the benefits of computer vision for industry and services, thus making a bridge between the Academia and the Enterprise worlds. VISAPP 2010 received 260 paper submissions from more than 50 countries in all continents. From these, 34 papers were published and presented as full papers, 70 were accepted for short presentation and another 48 for poster presentation. These numbers, leading to a full-paper acceptance ratio of 13%, and a total oral acceptance ratio of 40%, shows the intention of preserving a high quality forum for the next editions of this conference. Additionally, in this edition of VISAPP, a workshop was organized which facilitated the presentation of highly focused work in specialized themes within the topics of conference. Moreover, the conference also featured a number of keynote lectures delivered by internationally well known experts thus contributing to increase the overall quality of the conference and to provide a deeper understanding of the conference interest fields. The high number and high quality of the papers received imposed difficult choices in the review process. Each paper was sent to at least three reviewers. From these reviews, those papers that were adequately balanced in terms of quality, originality, and relevance to the conference themes were selected. A short list of the papers presented at the conference will be selected and extended revised versions of them will be included in a book to be published by Springer-Verlag. Two awards are delivered at the closing session, to recognize the best conference paper and the best student paper. The conference success is due to the efforts of many people. We gratefully acknowledge the essential contributions of VISAPP Program Committee members and additional reviewers in evaluating the papers and also special thanks to all the members of the INSTICC organizing committee. We wish you all an exciting conference and an unforgettable stay in Angers. We hope to meet you again for the 6th edition of VISAPP conference details of which will be shortly available at http://www.visapp.visigrapp.org.
