GeoDiff Workshop at VISIGRAPP

My fellow colleague Aymeric Histace is organizing a workshop at VISIGRAPP following our work on the GeoDiff projet. The key topic is the study of complex diffusion processes by variational approaches and multi-agent systems. I'll be part of the committee to give some help. This workshop is totally open to contributions, so I hope we will have many interesting papers to review. We already have programmed some nice tutorials on MAS.

Here is the scope:
The main aim of this special session is to bring together researchers who are interested in variational methods and by multi agent system in order to (i) reflect on a state-of- the-art on their abilities to model reaction-­-diffusion processes, and (ii) to discuss potential new applications since these two different types of tools are not generally 3 associated with each other whereas such a joint applications can be of primary interest to model complex diffusion process at different scales of the phenomenon.
A second objective of this special session, but not necessarily less important than the first one, is to imagine through this particular application context new tools that will find future applicability in image processing (image restoration or inpainting mainly).

And the important dates:
Paper Submission: November 8, 2012
Authors Notification: December 6, 2012
Final Paper Submission and Registration: December 18, 2012

Happy Awesome New Year

That's how I like new year beginning: a project I've been working on hard has been approved and will begin shortly. It's called TerraRush

The main topic is the indexing of video rushes (up to 50h+ of video per hour of movie) to facilitate their commercial exploitation. More on this soon...
