When the 25th bibliography in this series was published (two years ago), I began it with a note summarizing the history of the bibliographies and indicating that, with the increasing availability of bibliographic data in digital form (e.g., journal Tables of Contents on publishers' home pages), there might be changes in the nature of the bibliographies over the coming years. There have in fact been changes in the way we produce the bibliographies, but the product has not yet changed.
Since it has become relatively easy to search the web for bibliographic data, the need for pre-constructed bibliographies is becoming dubious, and I expect to stop preparing them soon. The database of references from which I prepare the bibliographies each year, which I began in 1961, has just (December 1996) reached 50,000 items; it currently grows by over 2000 items per year. I don't know if I'll ever stop collecting references, but I will definitely stop preparing annual bibliographies, perhaps with this one (27, the cube of 3), perhaps with the next one (28, a perfect number), and certainly when I reach the 30th one, which will appear (if it does) in the year 2000. I hope the community has found my bibliographies useful, and that the information resources of the 21st century prove to be even more useful.
This is the twenty-seventh in a series of bibliographies on computer processing of pictorial information, covering primarily items published during 1996. The coverage is restricted almost entirely to a selected set of U.S. or international journals and conference proceedings. 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) Computational techniques (E) Feature detection and segmentation; image and scene analysis (F) Two-dimensional shape and pattern (G) Color and texture (H) Matching and stereo (I) Three-dimensional recovery and analysis (J) Three-dimensional shape (K) Motion
Letter/number codes in the text (A.1, etc.) correspond to sections of the bibliography.
