Reviewed by: Mike James

This is a collection of all of the papers presented at VipIMAGE 2009 and it joins the earlier volumes documenting previous conferences. It's hardback and very nicely produced with each paper in the style of a journal paper. The papers are gathered together into the various sessions and themes presented at the conference.

The collection is extremely diverse ranging from medical modeling to new imagine techniques. The most important thing to point out to anyone considering this collection is to say that the range of topics is heavily biased towards the medical area of application with very few pure computational vision papers with short special sections on robotics and satellite imagery looking as if they had got lost on their way to another conference.

If your topic is medical computing then this is worth adding to the library.
