International conference on Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery at ESIEE Paris

The 2019 edition of “Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery” will take place between 26 and 28 March at ESIEE Paris.

The 2019 edition of the International Conference on Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery (DGCI 2019: Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery) will take place between 26 and 28 March at ESIEE Paris. 

This event is organized every year by the Gaspard-Monge Computer Laboratory (LIGM), which ESIEE is a joint-custodian of. 
The DGCI conference is a scientific event which aims to unite researchers, students and discrete geometry practitioners, covering discreet topology, geometric models and mathematical morphology, in order to present and examine new advances in these areas.

Discrete Geometry 

Discrete geometry is playing an increasing role in the areas of shape modelling, image synthesis and image analysis. It processes the topological definitions and the geometrics of digitalized objects or images and, at the same time, provides a theoretical framework for computer imagery. 

The program: 

6 main themes will be addressed:  

  • Models and discrete geometrical transformations 
  • Discrete topology 
  • Models, analysis and segmentation with graphs
  • Mathematical morphology
  • Recognition and shape analysis
  • Geometric calculations

Around 40 presentations are scheduled and will be given by researchers from different countries: 
Australia-Austria-Belgium-Brazil-China-Spain-USA-France-Hungary-India-Iran-Italy-Japan-The Netherlands-Peru-Poland-UK-Russia-Serbia-Sweden

We will have the honor of welcoming three prestigious researchers for longer presentations:

  • Alexandre Xavier Falcão from the University of Campinas – Brazil 
    “The role of Optimum Connectivity in Image Segmentation: Can the algorithm Learn Object Information during the process?”
  • Longin Jan Latecki from Temple University – USA
    “Computing Maximum Weight Cliques with Local Search on Large Graphs with Application to Common Object Discovery”
  • János Pach, from l'Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne – Switzerland
    “The Blessing of Low Dimensionality”

As well as the main conference, two satellite events have been organized meaning we have a weeklong scientific program:

At the end of the conference, a book will be put together, assembling the contributions presented during this 2019 edition of DGCI together with a special piece, the review “Journal of Mathematical Imaging and Vision”.
