Important DatesDescriptionRegistrationRequirementsTopics



Registration period: Registration is closed.

Regular meetings during the winter term 2011/2012:
Tuesday, 16:15h, Building E1.1, Room 306

Date of first regular meeting: Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Last meeting: Tuesday, January 10, 2012


Contents: Mathematical image processing is a prospering field of research for more than 60 years now with many practical applications. In this seminar, we discuss landmark papers which have shaped the field. These works are not only interesting from a historical perspective but contain crucial ideas that are still highly relevant and inspire current research.
The topics include but are not limited to information processing, feature detection, treatment of texture, multiscale methods and compressed sensing.

Prerequisites: The seminar is for advanced bachelor or master students in Visual Computing, Mathematics or Computer Science. Basic mathematical knowledge (e.g. Mathematik für Informatiker I-III) is required, and some knowledge in image processing is recommended.

Language: All papers are written in English and English is the preferred language of presentation.


Registration is closed.

Regular attendance: It is expected that you attend all seminar meetings, except for provable important reasons (we check).

Talk: Talk duration is 30 min, plus 15 min for discussion. Please do not deviate from this time schedule.
You may give a presentation using a data projector (»beamer«), overhead projector or blackboard, or mix these media appropriately. Your presentation should be delivered in English. Your slides and your write-up, too, should be in English.

Write-up: The write-up has to be handed in no later than three weeks after the end of the lecturing period. The write-up should summarise your talk, about 5 pages per speaker will be adequate in most cases. Electronic submission is preferred. File format for electronic submissions is PDF – text processor files (like .doc) are not acceptable. Adhere to the standards of scientific referencing: Quotations and copied material (such as images) must be clearly marked as such, and a bibliography is required.

Mandatory consultation: Talk preparation has to be presented to your seminar supervisor no later than a week before the talk is given. It is your responsibility to approach us timely and make your appointment!

No-shows: In case you do not appear to your scheduled talk, we reserve the right to exclude you from all future seminars of our group.

We plan to discuss the following papers. If your registration was successful, the password will be sent to you before the first meeting on Friday, July 22.
