Wavelets are the result of collective efforts that recognized common threads between ideas and concepts that had been independently developed and investigated by distinct research communities. They provide a unifying framework for decomposing images, volumes, and time series data into their elementary constituents across scale. Although a relatively recent construct, wavelets have become a tool of choice for engineers, physicists and mathematicians, leading to efficient solutions in time and space frequency analysis problems, as well as a multitude of other applications. One of the consequences is that wavelet methods of analysis and representation are presently having a significant impact on the science of signal/image processing. The application of wavelet theory concepts to the area of signal/image processing has made significant advances in the usage of these imaging modalities to different applications.
This special session aims at providing an opportunity for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in, and applications of wavelet in signal/image processing to meet and discuss the advances and latest developments in this exciting area. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer evaluated by two reviewers. The special session will be oriented towards both theoretical and applications aspects of Wavelets. Topics for the conference may include but are not limited to:
 Wavelet-based Steganology (watermark, copyright protection,etc)
 Inverse problems
 Image pyramids
 Frames and over-complete representations
 Multiresolution algorithms
 A Wavelet-based Analysis of Fractal Image Compression
 Wavelet-based noise reduction and restoration
 Multiscale edge detection
 Design of nonlinear operators
 Image databases, Image indexing or retrieval
 Wavelet texture analysis and segmentation
 Gabor transforms and spacefrequency localization
 Wavelet-based fractal analysis
 Multiscale random processes
 Wavelets and neural networks (pattern recognition)
 Image representations from wavelet maxima or zero-crossings
 Wavelet compression, coding and signal representation
 Wavelet theory and multirate filterbanks
 Wavelets in medical imaging.
