Image Processing and Analysis
Over the last decades, numerous studies have been made seeking the development of efficient computational methods for image processing and analysis. These methods are usually based on geometrical, statistical or physical principles and aim to achieve improved visualizations and/or high-level analysis from the input images.
Image processing and analysis can be applied in various areas such as, for instance, industry, engineering, medicine, biology or sports and involve tasks like image restoring, image enhancement, image segmentation, image registration, shape recognition, shape description, motion tracking and analysis, simulation and animation.
The main aim of this Symposium is to bring together specialists from various fields related to Computational Vision, Mathematics, Informatics, Statistics, Medical Imaging, Industry, among others. The proposed Symposium will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of methods related to Image Processing and Image Analysis with the purpose of identify the major lines of development for the near future. Another important challenge for the proposed Symposium is to establish a connection between researchers and end- users from diverse fields.
