  • Description

    The papers in this volume focus on the most modern and critical aspects of Image and Signal Processing and related areas that have a significant impact in our society. The papers may be categorized in the following four major parts. Coding and Compression (image coding, image subband, wavelet coding and representation, video coding, motion estimation and multimedia); Image Processing and Pattern Recognition (image analysis, edge detection, segmentation, image enhancement and restoration, adaptive systems, colour processing, pattern and object recognition and classification); Fast Processing Techniques (computational methods, VLSI DSP architectures); Theory and Applications (identificiation and modelling, multirate filter banks, wavelets in image and signal processing, biomedical and industrial applications). The authors of these exceptionally high-quality papers form an interesting group, originating from the five continents, representing 33 countries.
