TC16 Workshop "Image Mining. Theory and Applications" (IMTA VIII) @ ICPR2022

The TC16 on “Algebraic and Discrete Mathematical Techniques in Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis” is glad to announce that the IMTA-VIII workshop will take place as a satellite event of ICPR 2022 (Montreal, Canada, August 21-25, 2022).

The main purpose of the IMTA VIII Workshop is to provide the fusion of modern mathematical approaches and techniques for image analysis/pattern recognition with the requests of applications using an image as initial data representation.

Participants will enjoy the opportunity to discuss methodological aspects and mathematical and computational techniques for automation of image mining on the base of mathematical theory for pattern recognition and image analysis. The workshop aims at discussing artificial intelligence techniques, in particular, linguistic and knowledge engineering tools for image mining and to estimate the prospects of the algebraic approaches in representation of image analysis knowledge. The interpretation of mathematical and linguistic techniques will be illustrated by application problems, mainly from biology and medicine, from automation of scientific research, industrial applications and of many other domains generating breakthrough and difficult application tasks.
