Summer School on

MORPHOLOGICAL IMAGE AND SIGNAL PROCESSING

Zakopane, Poland, September 27-30, 1995

Supported by: BENEFIT for Stimulation and Support of East-West Collaboration in the Areas of Microelectronics and Signal Processing

Organized by STU Gliwice, Poland in cooperation with CWI Amsterdam, The Netherlands

One of the events organised within the BENEFIT framework is the summer school on Morphological Image and Signal Processing. Its aim is to exchange experience and knowledge in the area of image and signal processing with particular focus on morphological methods. The scientific programme includes invited lectures (two lectures daily, each lecture comprising 2 x 50 minutes) and a number of short talks given by the participants. The lectures and short talks will be published separately. The official School language (lectures, talks, papers) will be English. The Summer School will be held in Zakopane, Poland, in the most famous and attractive place in the Polish Tatra mountains. The place is located near the Slowakian border within a short distance from Krakow and Katowice.

These cities have convenient air links with many European airports, and regular bus and train connections with Zakopane.

Topics

  1. Morphological representation
  2. Morphological filtering
  3. Implementation
