The purpose of the International Symposium CompIMAGE'10 is to provide a common forum for researchers, scientists, engineers, and practitioners around the world to present their latest research findings, ideas, developments, and applications in the area of computational modeling of objects represented in images. In particular, the Symposium aims to attract scientists who use various approaches - such as finite element method, optimization methods, modal analysis, stochastic methods, principal components analysis, independent components analysis, distribution models, geometrical modeling, digital geometry, grammars, fuzzy logic, and others - to solve problems that appear in a wide range of areas - as diverse as medicine, robotics, defense, security, astronomy, material science, and manufacturing.

The previous issue of this CompIMAGE symposium, held in Coimbra, Portugal, was recognized as very successful by the participants who came from 19 different countries and five continents. Information about it can be found here.

The special guest of CompIMAGE'10, Dr. Herbert A. Hauptman (Nobel Laureate, President of the Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute) will open the scientific program with a question-answer session and discussion.

Keynote talks will be given by Prof. Chandrajit L. Bajaj, University of Texas at Austin, Prof. Jorge S. Marques , Instituto Superior Tecnico, Lisbon, Portugal, Prof. Dinggang Shen, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Prof. Yongjie (Jessica) Zhang, Carnegie Mellon University.

The scientific program of the symposium will consist of keynote addresses, contributed papers, and posters. The symposium proceedings will be published by Spinger's "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" series.

After the symposium, the authors of the best ranked papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their works for publication in special journal issues.


The symposium will cover the following topics:

  • Image Processing and Analysis
  • Image Segmentation
  • 2D and 3D Reconstruction
  • Discrete Tomography
  • Data Interpolation, Registration, Acquisition and Compression
  • Objects Tracking
  • Medical Imaging
  • Computational Bioimaging and Visualization
  • Biometric Person Identification
  • Computational Crystallography
  • Motion and Deformation Analysis
  • Visual Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
  • Scientific Data Visualization
  • Large Data Set Visualization
  • Simulation
  • Theoretical Foundations of Object Modeling
  • Digital Geometry for Computer Imaging
  • Shape Modeling

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers on some of the above or closely related topics. The submitted work should contain only results that are unpublished and not included in other articles considered for publication elsewhere. Thus, by submitting a paper, the author(s) warrant that neither this nor any other paper with essentially the same technical content has been published or submitted for publication anywhere else. More about the paper format and submission procedure can be found here.

In order to be accepted, a submitted paper will have to meet very high standards by satisfying serious evaluation criteria; to ensure maximal objectiveness, each paper will undergo a double-blind review process by three referees.

In addition to the papers addressing the above topics, a Special Track on Object Modeling, Algorithms, and Applications will take place as a part of CompIMAGE'10. Authors are invited to submit original papers describing mathematical models for various real problems and algorithms and software for these problems. The criteria for acceptance will be originality, efficiency and overall performance of the model and the algorithms, that is demonstrated by extensive experimental work.

The papers of the Special Track will be published in a volume of Research Publishing Services with ISBN. After the symposium, the authors of the best ranked papers of the Special Track will be invited to submit extended versions of their works for publication in special journal issues.

Social Program

The social program includes:

  • Banquet
  • Walking tour of Buffalo
  • Tour to Niagara Falls. Free time for those willing to visit the Canadian Falls (passport and possibly a visa required)

If there is enough interest, pre- or post-symposium tours can be arranged to:

  • Genesee Country Village - the largest New York living history museum.
  • Erie Canal linking Lake Erie to the Hudson River; an engineering marvel - when it was built in 1825, it was called the Eighth Wonder of the World.
  • Corning Museum of Glass contains more than 45,000 objects spanning 35 centuries. You have the possibility to make your own glasswork.
  • Letchworth State Park called the Grand Canyon of the East.
