Short Course and Third IMA Conference on Imaging and Digital Image Processing:Mathematical Methods, Algorithms and Applications

DeMontfort University, Leicester, UK12-15 September 2000The Institute of Mathematics and Its ApplicationsCo-sponsored by the Institute of Physics and the Institution of Electrical Engineers

The third IMA conference on Imaging and Digital Image Processing will be held from 13 to 15 September 2000. The conference will be a forum for discussing the mathematical modelling of imaging systems, the design and implementation of specialised image processing algorithms and novel applications of image processing software in industry and commerce. Specific areas on which the conference will focus will include: inverse problems in imaging, statistical methods in image processing, image compression techniques, fuzzy systems theory, artificial neural networks, multifractals and wavelets, colour image processing, 3D imaging and image processing, real-time image processing and systems modelling. Submission on all aspects of image processing relating to these fields of interest are invited. The organising committee is particularly interested in papers which relate the mathematical exposition of a given problem to the practical realisation of an algorithm and its implementation in the civilian and/or defence industries.

A one-day short course on an "Introduction to imaging and digital image processing" will precede the conference on 12 September. The course will provide an introduction to mathematical techniques and computer algorithms used to model imaging systems and processing the images generated by these systems. The course material will include a complete set of lecture and supplementary notes and library of C/C++ source code with a flexible prototype GUI.
