A profound mathematical basis has been developed for shape and image processing over the past decades.
In particular variational methods have proved powerful, and modern optimization algorithms allow their efficient solution.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together leading experts in image processing, shape analysis and optimization, in order to exchange and discuss new ideas and challenges in the fields.
The program includes scheduled talks by invited specialists as well as a few slots to allow other participants (in particular young scientists) to present their work.
Schedule and conference booklet for download.
The workshop takes place in a seminar center next to the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science in Münster which is located at (Google Maps
The address of the seminar center itself is Orleansring 12
, but the building is not yet visible on many maps since it is new.
The University of Münster is located in Münster, Germany. (An alternative spelling of Münster is Muenster - note that this is different from Munster, Germany!)
A fee of 40 Euros is charged for workshop participation, which includes coffee breaks, lunch and the workshop dinner.
Furthermore, regular participants are asked to fund their travel and accommodation expenses.
