This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third Pacific Rim Symposium on Image and Video Technology, PSIVT 2008, held in Tokyo, Japan, in January 2009.
The 39 revised full papers and 57 posters were carefully reviewed and selected from 247 submissions. The symposium features 8 major themes including all aspects of image and video technology: image sensors and multimedia hardware; graphics and visualization; image and video analysis; recognition and retrieval; multi-view imaging and processing; computer vision applications; video communications and networking; and multimedia processing. The papers are organized in topical sections on faces and pedestrians; panoramic images; local image analysis; organization and grouping; multiview geometry; detection and tracking; computational photography and forgeries; coding and steganography; recognition and search; and reconstruction and visualization.
