The ICIP 2002 Organizing Committee takes great pleasure in extending this invitation to you to attend IEEE ICIP 2002 at Rochester, New York, USA. With its ninth meeting, ICIP has already been established as the premier international conference in the field of image and video processing research and applications. Once again, ICIP 2002 will bring together researchers and practitioners to present their latest achievements and explore future directions in image and video processing.

Conference activities will take place in the Riverside Convention Center located on the banks of the Genesee River in downtown Rochester and the Hyatt Regency Hotel connected to the Convention Center. With the presence of major imaging and optics companies such as Eastman Kodak, Xerox, Corning, and Bausch and Lomb, Rochester came to be known as the imaging center of the world. The city is located on the shore of Lake Ontario and offers unique sightseeing opportunities. Among the most visited attractions in the downtown area are the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography & Film (home of Mr. George Eastman, the founder of Kodak), the Eastman Theatre, and the University of Rochester Memorial Art Gallery. The Finger Lakes region (Wine Country) and Niagara Falls are within a short one-hour car ride, and Thousand Islands and Adirondack Park (to watch fall colors) take about 3 hours to reach by car.
