Welcome to DICTA 2011


The International Conference on Digital Image Computing: Techniques and Applications (DICTA) is the main Australian Conference on computer vision, image processing, pattern recognition, and related areas. DICTA was established as a biannual conference in 1991 and became an annual event in 2007. It is the premiere conference of the Australian Pattern Recognition Society (APRS).

DICTA 2011 is being held in Noosa, Queensland, Australia from 6-8 December 2011. The venue for the conference is the Sheraton Noosa Resort & Spa located between the Noosa River and Noosa's renowned Hastings Street. The format of the conference will be dual-track with both oral presentations and posters.

DICTA 2011 is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE and IAPR. All papers presented at the conference will be included in IEEE Xplore. DICTA is an Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) B ranked conference.

The paper submission system is now CLOSED. Thank you, we had almost 200 papers submitted.
