International Workshop on Combinatorial Image Analysis
14-16 May 2003, Palermo - Italy


  IWCIA2003 is the nineth in a series of  workshops  on  parallel
  and  combinatorial image analysis. Prior meetings took place in
  Paris (France, 1991), Ube (Japan, 1992),  Washington  DC  (USA,
  1994),  Lyon  (France,  1995),  Hiroshima (Japan, 1997), Madras
  (India, 1999),  Caen  (France,  2000)  and  Philadelphia  (USA,
  2001).  This  edition will be held in Palermo (Italy, 14-16 May
  2003). Topics treated will include, but  are  not  limited  to:
  Digital   topology;   Discrete  tomography;  Array,  graph  and
  parallel grammars; Cellular  automata;  Tilings  and  patterns;
  Combinatorial methods in image analysis; Combinatorial problems
  in  the  discrete  plane;  Integer-only  algorithms  for  image
  analysis; Non-conventional computing for image analysis such as
  genetic algorithms, global optimization...
