Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the International Conference on Image Processing and Vision Engineering (IMPROVE 2021). This conference is sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC), and held in cooperation with the ACM Special Interest Group on Artificial Intelligence (ACM SIGAI) and the ACM Special Interest Group in Multimedia (ACM SIGMM). This year IMPROVE was held as a web-based event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, from 28 - 30 April. IMPROVE is a comprehensive conference of academic and technical nature, focused on image processing and computer vision practical applications. It brings together researchers, engineers and practitioners working either in fundamental areas of image processing, developing new methods and techniques, including innovative machine learning approaches, as well as multimedia communications technology and applications of image processing and artificial vision in diverse areas. In 2021, IMPROVE features four invited talks delivered by internationally distinguished speakers: Matthias Niessner (Technical University of Munich, Germany), Luisa Verdoliva (University of Naples Federico II, Italy), Federico Tombari (Google and Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany) and Sotirios A. Tsaftaris (University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom). The IMPROVE conference received 27 paper submissions from 14 countries in all continents, of which 22% were accepted as full papers. The submission’s high quality imposed difficult choices during the review process. To evaluate each submission, a double blind paper review was performed by the Program Committee, whose members are highly qualified independent researchers in the five IMPROVE Conferences’ topic areas. A short list of papers presented at the IMPROVE will be selected for publication of extended and revised versions in a special issue of Springer Nature Computer Science Journal. We would like to express our thanks to all participants. First of all, to the authors, whose quality work is the essence of this conference. Next, we thank all the members of the program committee and the auxiliary reviewers for their diligence and expert reviewing. Also, we would like to deeply thank the invited speakers for their excellent contribution in sharing their knowledge and vision. Finally, we gratefully acknowledge the professional support of the INSTICC team for all organizational processes, especially given the need to introduce online streaming, forum management, direct messaging facilitation and other web-based activities in order to make it possible for authors to present their work and share ideas with colleagues in spite of the logistic difficulties caused by the current pandemic situation. We hope that the papers accepted and included in the proceedings will be helpful references in future works for all those who need to address topics in any of the IMPROVE knowledge areas. We wish you all an inspiring conference and we hope to meet you next year for IMPROVE 2022, details of which will soon be available at http://www.improve.scitevents.org/. (More)
