The schedule can be found
Date of first regular meeting: Wednesday, April 30, 2008.
Contents: The seminar will deal with the processing and visualisation of matrix-valued data. Such data is obtained, for example, from diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DT-MRI). We discuss imaging techniques where matrix-valued data arises, the question how to understand and visualise matrices, as well as regularisation and filtering methods. The images below show a section of a DT-MRI scan of the human brain and a filtered version of this data set with a modified nonlinear diffusion filter for matrix data.
Prerequisites: The seminar is suitable for students of visual computing, mathematics, and computer science with a basic background in mathematics and image analysis.
Language: Understanding scientific texts in English is indispensable. Talks and write-up can be in English or German.
Sessions: The first meeting has taken place Friday, February 22, 2008, 14:15h, Bld. E1.1, room 306. Regular sessions will be weekly during the summer term.
Regular attendance: It is expected that you attend all seminar meetings, except for provable important reasons (we check).
Talk duration is 30 min, plus 15 min for discussion. Please do not
deviate significantly from this time schedule.
Write-up: The write-up should summarise your talk, so some 3+ 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. We recommend using LaTeX. 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 not later than in the week before the talk is given. It's your responsibility to approach us timely and make your appointment!
