Over the past decade, great progress has been made in the geometrical and statistical foundations of computer vision. This progress has provided a solid mathematical foundation for the use of images to reconstruct and model the environment. The next step is to advance computer vision to the level of engineering science for machines that see. The emergence and recognition of computer vision as an engineering science requires agreement on verifiable theories, on design methods, and on performance metrics. This is the goal of the International Conference on Vision Systems - to reach agreement on these issues.

This special issue of Machine Vision and Applications is composed of papers presented at the Third International Conference on Vision Systems, held in Graz, Austria in April 2003. The ICVS ‘03 program presented two days of original, high-quality scientific research papers on computer vision systems. Each day included two invited talks, three technical sessions, and a poster session. O
