The paper addresses the problem of controlling situated image understanding processes. Two complementary control styles are considered and applied cooperatively, a deliberative one and a reactive one. The role of deliberative control is to account for the unpredictability of situations, by dynamically determining which strategies to pursue, based on the results obtained so far and more generally on the state of the understanding process. The role of reactive control is to account for the variability of local properties of the image by tuning operations to subimages, each one being homogeneous with respect to a given operation. A variable organization of agents is studied to face this variability. The two control modes are integrated into a unified formalism describing segmentation and interpretation activities. A feedback from high level interpretation tasks to low level segmentation tasks thus becomes possible and is exploited to recover wrong segmentations. Preliminary results in the field of liver biopsy image understanding are shown to demonstrate the potential of the approach.
