 Overview

Mathematical imaging is a multidisciplinary field that synergizes many areas of science, technology and mathematics to provide solid foundation, new ideas and techniques and understanding of almost every aspect of imaging science ranging from hardware design to image enhancement, from image representation to image understanding, and from modeling of pattern formation to synthesis of artistic graphics.

Digital media comprises hardware and software systems that enable real-time human-machine interaction. It involves a wide range of technologies that cut across various disciplines in sciences, mathematics, engineering and computer sciences with applications in diverse fields, including communications, education, medicine, finance, games, entertainment and lifestyle.

Despite the distinctiveness of the two diversified fields, mathematical imaging and digital media share many commonalities when it comes to the use of mathematical theory and computational tools. The purpose of this program is to conduct multidisciplinary studies involving mathematical perspectives and foundation of imaging science and digital media. In particular, the program emphasizes on the applications in imaging science and digital media of the recent developments in the areas of approximation and wavelet theory, numerical analysis and scientific computing, and statistical and data analysis. The focus will be on the following themes.

  1. Mathematical Imaging and Digital Media: Mathematical methods for computer graphics, computer vision, mesh generation, image restoration and reconstruction, image enhancement, image segmentation, object detection, image decomposition, image representation, image compression.

  2. Wavelet Theory and Applications: Sparse data representation and approximation by wavelets and redundant systems, noise removal, stochastic wavelet analysis, inverse problems via wavelet methods.

      Co-chairs
      Albert Cohen (Université Pierre et Marie Curie, France)
      Stéphane Jaffard (Université Paris XII, France)
      Zuowei Shen (National University of Singapore)
      Lihua Yang (Sun Yat-Sen University, China)

      Members
      Say Song Goh (National University of Singapore)
      Seng Luan Lee (National University of Singapore)
      Song Li (Zhejiang University, China)

      This workshop is a joint event between wavelet groups from China, France and Singapore. The aim is to communicate new developments and to explore research collaborations among researchers from the three countries in the areas of sparse data representation and approximation by wavelets and redundant systems, noise removal, stochastic wavelet analysis, and inverse problems via wavelet methods.

    2. Workshop on Mathematical Imaging and Digital Media, 16 20 Jun 2008



    3. Organizing Committee

      Co-chairs
      Stanley Osher (University of California, Los Angeles, USA)
      Zuowei Shen (National University of Singapore)

      Members
      Hui Ji (National University of Singapore)
      Andy M. Yip (National University of Singapore)

      The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers in various aspects in mathematical image processing and digital image to share the latest developments of the diversified field of image processing and digital media and to leverage the synergy between different research groups. The particular focuses of the workshop are the topics of computer graphics, computer vision, image restoration, image segmentation, computer vision, image representation, and image compression. International experts who employ mathematical methods, such as PDE, variational, wavelet and stochastic methods, in these topics will deliver talks on their latest research.

  • Summer School: 26 May 6 Jun 2008

    The Summer School brings together senior undergraduate students and graduate students to the study of mathematical imaging and digital media and their applications. It consists of two weeks of tutorials and student oriented seminars. It covers basic mathematical theory of imaging, PDE and variational methods, graph-cut methods, wavelet methods and applications to digital media and biomedical imaging.
