The aim of CTIC'2008 is to gather researchers dealing with the study
of topological invariants from the computational point of view, and/or
who want to use topological information in image applications. Indeed,
people from different fields related to these studies share a growing
interest in collaborating. These fields include: computational
geometry, discrete geometry, geometrical modeling, algebraic topology
and image processing.

The workshop will provide an opportunity for the world's leading
scientists and other participants in these fields, including young
researchers, to exchange ideas. It will act as a catalyst for creating
new collaborations, and starting new transversal projects. To achieve
this goal, participants are encouraged to present an up-to-date survey
of their research related to one of the topics of the workshop listed
below. Research in progress can also be submitted, as well as results
that have been published recently. Works related to image applications
using topological invariants are particularly welcome.

The  workshop  will  offer invited  talks by :
  Isabelle Bloch (ENST, Paris), 
  Francis Sergeraert (UJF, Grenoble),
  Pedro Real (Sevilla, Spain).

SCOPE:

The range of topics that are within the scope of the Workshop on
Computational Topology in Image Context includes (but is not limited
to):

- Topological invariants and their computation,
  homology, cohomology, linking number, fundamental groups, ...

- Algorithm optimization for image applications,
  transfer of mathematical tools, parallel computation, 
  hierarchical approaches,  ...

- Experimental evaluation of algorithms and heuristics,

- Numerical issues arising in implementations,

- Combinatorial or multi-resolution models,

- Discrete or computational topology,

- Geometrical modeling guided by topological constraints,

- Use of topological information in image applications 

______________________________________________________________________

Call for papers:

Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts describing either an
up-to-date survey of their research related to one of the topics of
the workshop listed above. Research in progress can also be submitted,
as well as results that have been published recently. Works related to
image applications using topological invariants are particularly
welcome. Abstracts, written in English, should not exceed 6 single-spaced 
pages, and should be submitted before 4 May 2008.
