DGCI 2008 : 14th International Conference on Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery
Conference Series : Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery
Call For Papers
The aim of the DGCI conference is to gather researchers in discrete geometry and topology, and discrete models, with applications in image analysis and image synthesis.
Discrete geometry plays an expanding role in the fields of shape modelling, image synthesis, and image analysis. It deals with topological and geometrical definitions of digitized objects or digitized images and provides both a theoretical and computational framework for computer imaging.
This edition of DGCI follows the successful 2006 edition held in Szeged, Hungary. DGCI 2008 is organized by the Multiresolution, Discrete and Combinatorial Models Team (M2Disco, Laboratoire LIRIS) of the University of Lyon.
The main topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* Models for Discrete Geometry (grids, discrete objects, discrete model properties, digitization schemes, metrics,...)
* Discrete and Combinatorial Topology
* Geometric Transforms (image mappings, distance transformation, skeletons and medial axis,...)
* Discrete Shape Representation, Recognition and Analysis
* Discrete Tomography
* Morphological Analysis
* Discrete Modelling and Visualization
* Discrete and Combinatorial Tools for Image Segmentation and Analysis
The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer Verlag in Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (upon Springer approval). Submissions must be in electronic form (PDF or PS) and should be uploaded through the DGCI 2008 Web site. A precise guideline will be published soon on the DGCI 2008 web site. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 2 qualified reviewers. Selection criteria will include: relevance, significance, impact, originality, technical soundness, and quality of presentation.
