22-25 September, 2014                   West Univesity of Timisoara

5th International Workshop on

Computational Topology in Image Context 

in conjunction with

16th International Symposium on Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing, Timisoara, Romania

The general aim of CTIC workshops is to gather researchers dealing with the study of topological invariants from the computational point of view, and/or who want to use topological information in image applications.

The specific aim of CTIC 2014 is to focus on the interplay between various methods of image processing and in particular on multi-dimensional and multi-variate image processing and on the efficient application of these new techniques in medical imagery.

The workshop intends to provide an opportunity for participants, from different fields related to computational geometry, discrete geometry, geometrical modeling, algebraic topology and image processing to exchange ideas.


The range of topics that are within the scope of the Workshop on Computational Topology in Image Context includes (but is not limited to):

    • Topological invariants and their computation, homology, cohomology, linking number, fundamental groups, ...;

    • Algorithm optimization for image applications, transfer of mathematical tools, parallel computation in image context, hierarchical approaches, ...;

    • Experimental evaluation of algorithms and heuristics;

    • Combinatorial or multi-resolution models;

    • Discrete or computational topology;

    • Geometrical modeling guided by topological constraints;

    • Use of topological information in image applications.
