TC16 Workshop "Image Mining. Theory and Applications" (IMTA VII) @ ICPR2020

The TC16 on “Algebraic and Discrete Mathematical Techniques in Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis” is glad to announce that the IMTA-VII workshop will take place as a satellite event of ICPR 2020 (Milan, Italy, January 10-15, 2021).

Image mining methods are able to extract knowledge and to highlight patterns, enabling very important applications such as medical diagnosis, robotics, technical diagnosis and non-destructive testing, precision agriculture, novel industrial support system, remote sensing, and many others. The mathematical foundations, means and tools are of the first importance for the field. In essence, the mathematical aspects of image analysis and pattern recognition, mainly of image mining – a leading line of the modern mathematical theory of image analysis - are the subject of IMTA-VII.

The technological advances and the increase of storage capability support the growth of large and detailed, but possibly noisy, image datasets. Hence, IMTA-VII topics are of utmost relevance being the perfect humus for giving rise to important cross-contamination with other emerging fields, both theoretical and applied. ICPR,  being recognized as the main scientific event in pattern recognition, image analysis and allied scientific and technological areas, is an excellent venue for IMTA-VII.

The workshop is intended to cover, but it is not limited to, the following topics:

  • Methodological advances in image analysis and pattern recognition;
  • New Mathematical Techniques in Image Mining;
  • Image Models, Representations and Features;
  • Automation of Image and Data Mining;
  • Artificial Intelligence Techniques in Image Mining;
  • Applied problems.

The full texts of the papers presented at the IMTA VII, selected and recommended by IMTA Committee, will be published in 2021 in a Special Issue of the International Journal of the Russian Academy of Sciences “Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis. Advances in Mathematical Theory and Applications” (PRIA).

Notice, that due to the COVID19 outbreak, ICPR, initially planned for September 2020, has been postponed to January 10-15, 2021. Therefore, IMTA-VII has been moved to January 11, 2021.
