Special Session of WILF2007 on
"Soft Computing in Image Processing"
HYPERLINK "http://wilf2007.disi.unige.it/"http://wilf2007.disi.unige.it/
Portofino Vetta - Ruta di Camogli, Genova (Italy) 
July  7-10, 2007









For over four decades, researchers in the area of image analysis 
have developed numerous methods and systems, many of which based 
on probabilistic paradigms, such as the well-known Bayesian decision 
rule and evidence-based decision-making systems. The main assumption 
is that physical laws are ruled by Aristotelic logic; in other words 
they arise from a crisp-world assumption. Anyway, this assumption is 
not always true in the physical world; as a matter of fact, crisp 
assumptions work for some problems, while they fails miserably whenever 
imprecision and accuracy are not following probabilistic rules.
The rise of several major seminal theories proposed in early 60 including 
fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms, evolutionary computation, neural networks 
and their combination (the soft-computing paradigm in brief) are now leading

techniques, allows to incorporate imprecision and incomplete information, 
and to model very complex systems, making them a useful tool in many
scientific areas.
These new methods may become more effective and powerful in real-world 
applications and can offer viable and effective solutions to some of the 
most difficult problems in image and pattern analysis. 
The purpose of this special session is to demonstrate some recent successes 
in solving image analysis problems by soft computing techniques and
to motivate other image processing researchers to utilize this technology to

solve their real-world problems. It will cover a range of domains, from more

traditional ones such as image analysis at low, medium and high level,
pattern recognition and all the topics inherent to computer vision, 
all treated by means of soft-computing techniques.
Topics include but are not limited to:
-Soft computing algorithms for denoising and restoration
-Soft computing techniques for pattern recognition
-Soft computing algorithms for digital image processing, coding and
-Soft computing in computer vision 
-Soft computing algorithms for video content-based indexing and
-Soft multimedia data analysis and visualization: texture, color,
content, etc. 
-Applications, i.e. visual surveillance, face recognition, medical
imaging, remote sensing, etc.
