Wavelets in Signal/Image Processing”

Organized by
Dr. Aboul Ella Hassanien and Dr. Hala Shawki
Kuwait University

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 the tool of choice for engineers, physicists, and mathematicians, leading to efficient solutions in time and space frequency analysis problems, as well as in a multitude of other applications. Wavelet methods of analysis and representation are having a significant impact on the science of signal and image processing. The application of wavelet theory concepts to this area has made possible 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 in signal/ image processing.

You are kindly invited to participate in the special session on Wavelets in signal/image processing to be organized at "Second International Conference onIntelligent Computing and Information Systems"
