In this paper, we propose a distributed and parallel schema to implement the standard version of active appearance model segmentation approach proposed by Cootes. In the scheme distributed, we project to integrate the parallelism to implement the model operations. The parallel schema proposed is based on the data parallelism. The majority of operations of the model lend themselves well to the parallelism. We quote the alignment procedure and the calculation of intensity profiles. These two operations belong to the stage of modelling shape. The proposed schema is intended to exploit the benefits built in the area of parallel and distributed image processing. We theoretically demonstrate the feasibility of the parallel approach for the first model operations, in order to generalise this approach to other operations. This implementation is still being and is aiming to exploit the benefits of the recent software tools such as Java-RMI, and parallel programming.
