It has been selected as a European Cultural Capital for 2019.

TOPICS:

IWCIA\’17 seeks high quality papers describing contributions to the foundations, methodology, and applications in the field of combinatorial image analysis. Topics include, but are not limited to:

– Combinatorial problems in the discrete plane and space; Lattice polygons and polytopes

– Digital/combinatorial geometry and topology

– 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.
