    Special Workshops:

    [] Medical Imaging Systems
    In recent years, extensive research has been performed to develop more
    and more efficient and powerful medical imaging systems. Such systems
    are crucial for medical specialists, allowing a deeper analysis and to
    understand what is going inside the human body, and therefore they play
    an essential role for adequate medical diagnosis and treatments.
    To accomplish efficient and powerful medical imaging systems, many
    research works have being done in many domains, like the ones related
    with medical image devices, signal processing, image processing and
    analysis, biomechanical simulation and data visualization.
    The main goal of the Workshop “Medical Imaging Systems” is to bring
    together researchers involved in the related domains, in order to set
    the major lines of development for the near future.
    Therefore, the proposed Workshop will consist of researchers
    representing various fields related to Medical Devices, Signal
    Processing, Computational Vision, Computer Graphics, Computational
    Mechanics, Scientific Visualization, Mathematics and Medical Imaging.
    The Workshop endeavors to contribute to obtain better solutions for more
    efficient and powerful medical imaging systems, and attempts to
    establish a bridge between clinicians and researchers from these diverse

    The proposed Workshop will cover topics related with medical imaging
    systems, such as:
    • image acquisition
    • signal processing
    • image processing and analysis
    • modelling and simulation
    • computer aided diagnosis
    • surgery, therapy, and treatment
    • computational bioimaging and visualization • software development •
    virtual reality • telemedicine systems and their applications

    [] D-TV
    In contrast to traditional TV DTV is a telecommunication system for
    broadcasting and receiving moving pictures and sound by means of digital
    signals. It uses digitally compressed modulation data, which requires
    decoding by a specially designed television set or a standard receiver
    (set-top box) as well as via PC-TV based on ADLS (VDSL). Digital
    Television has several advantages regarding technically as well as
    content and programme related aspects. One of the most significant is
    the use of a smaller channel bandwidth.
    This frees up space for more digital channels, other non-television
    services such as pay-multimedia services and the generation of new
    revenue models based on interactive advertisement and marketing
    features. Furthermore there are special services such as multicasting
    (more than one programme on the same channel), electronic programme
    guides and interactivity providing a wider range of application.
    Accordingly within the last year a growing up of specialised digital TV
    channels (Special Interest Channels) has to be observed European wide.
    This new growing up stream is mainly characterised by the phenomena of
    merging television
    (TV) and information technology (IT) know how, methods and techniques.
    In this context the workshop targets to show up the development in both
    directions: the technically aspects as well as the content and programme
    issues. It provides a presentation and discussion platform for
    exchanging experiences made within the establishment as well as the
    maintenance of digital special interest channels. Main focus will be to
    point out the interdependencies and the mutual influences of technically
    streams and content respectively service related issues.
