NADĚJE A RIZIKA DIGITÁLNÍHO VĚKU

Aims and scope

Analysis of data coming from different physical modalities is one of the key issues of recent image processing research. Proper fusion of the data provides better understanding and can even improve the visibility of concealed features. Such methods can be found in various application areas spanning from the medical imaging, material analysis, remote sensing to cultural heritage.

This workshop will bring together researchers both on a national and international level to exchange ideas, encourage collaborations and present cutting-edge research. We welcome participants both from research institutions as well as from industry, hospitals, government and other application areas.

Program

Keynote speakers

We are proud to host high profile international researchers from fundamental and application oriented research.

Submission

We invite participants to submit abstracts in the area of multisource data analysis from various application areas as well as method development. Submissions can be work in progress and submission of previously published work or work under review.

Submitted extended abstracts must follow this paper format and templates (Word, TeX). The form of presentation is

  • Posters
  • Short topic introduction, 5 slides with max 10 minutes oral presentation

The length of the extended abstracts is max 2 pages, including figures and tables; additional pages must contain only cited references. The accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceeding, available to download. We invite submissions of ongoing or already published work, as well as reports on demonstrators and prototypes.
