Book Description

This book contains keynote lectures and full papers presented at the International Symposium on Computational Modelling of Objects Represented in Images (CompIMAGE), held in Coimbra, Portugal, on 20-21 October 2006. International contributions from nineteen countries provide a comprehensive coverage of the current state-of-the-art in the fields of:

- Image Processing and Analysis;

- Image Segmentation;

- Data Interpolation;

- Registration, Acquisition and Compression;

- 3D Reconstruction;

- Objects Tracking;

- Motion and Deformation Analysis;

- Objects Simulation;

- Medical Imaging;

- Computational Bioimaging and Visualization.

Related techniques also covered in this book include the finite element method, modal analyses, stochastic methods, principal and independent components analyses and distribution models. Computational Modelling of Objects Represented in Images will be useful to academics, researchers and professionals in Computational Vision (image processing and analysis), Computer Sciences, and Computational Mechanics.
