The British Machine Vision Association was formed in 1990, with the aim of promoting the knowledge of machine vision, image processing and pattern recognition in the UK. Its members are drawn from a wide range of academic, industrial and professional disciplines, and include physicists, engineers, computer scientists, and psychologists. Its annual conferences provide the premier national forum at which research into the theory, technology and application of these areas can be presented and debated. Although the scope of the conferences is wide, there is particular emphasis on research being carried out in the UK as part of national or international collaborative projects. This volume contains the papers to be presented at the forthcoming British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC'92). Among the topics covered are: Image processing and feature extraction; Object recognition and scene analysis; Reconstruction of 3D shape; Advanced pattern analysis; Computational issues in perception; Robotic vision and sensor fusion; Practical applications; Model-based coding; Architectures; Active vision; Motion analysis; Neural networks. This volume will be an important reference work for researchers and applications workers in computer vision, machine vision and image processing, in both academic institutions and industry. It will also be invaluable to anyone wishing to keep up-to-date in this important and fast-moving area.Hogg, D. is the author of 'BMVC '92 : Proceedings of the British Machine Vision Conference, 22-24 September, University of Leeds', published 1992 under ISBN 9783540197775 and ISBN 354019777X.
