This is the eighteenth in a series of bibliographies on computer processing of pictorial information, covering primarily items published during 1987. The previous bibliographies were entitled ``Picture Processing 19xx'', but because of the growth of the field, coverage of topics such as image coding and image processing has now been discontinued.
The coverage is restricted, for the most part, to a selected set of U.S. or international journals and proceedings of specialized meetings. No attempt is made to summarize or evaluate the items cited; the purpose is simply to provide a convenient compendium of references, grouped by subject.
The references are arranged under the following headings: (A) General references (B) Related topics (C) Applications (D) Architectures (E) Computational techniques (F) Feature detection, segmentation, image analysis (G) Matching, stereo, time-varying imagery (H) Shape; (H prime) Geometry (I) Color and texture (J) Three-dimensional scene analysis Letter/number codes in the text (A.1, etc.) correspond to sections of the bibliography.

(A.1) Meetings and meeting proceedings [1-35]
