– Digital manifolds; Geometry of digital curves and surfaces
– Analysis and processing of digital surfaces with singularities (such as \”pinched digital surfaces\”)
– Homotopy of digital manifolds; thinning algorithms and skeletons
– Boundary tracking of digital solids; Geometric characteristics of object boundaries
– Multigrid convergence analysis of metric-based descriptors
– Tilings and patterns; Combinatorial pattern matching
– Computational geometry and imaging sciences
– Integer programming, linear programming, and graph theoretic models and approaches to problems of image analysis
– Image representation, segmentation, grouping, and reconstruction
– Processing \”very large\” digital pictures; Methods for image compression
– Parallel architectures and algorithms
– Fuzzy and stochastic image analysis
– Discrete tomography
– Grammars and models for image or scene analysis and recognition; cellular automata
– Mathematical morphology and image analysis
– Applications in medical imaging, biometrics, computer vision, image
understanding, robotics, metrology, and others
SPECIAL TRACK ON APPLICATIONS:
In addition to the theoretical research papers, a Special Track on Applications will be organized. The accepted papers will be published by Research Publishing Services or by a similar publisher.
