IWCIA 2001 is the eighth in a series of workshops on parallel and combinatorial image analysis. Prior meetings took place in Paris (France, 1991), Ube (Japan, 1992), Washington DC (U.S.A., 1994), Lyon (France, 1995), Hiroshima (Japan, 1997), Madras (India, 1999) and Caen (France, 2000).

The meeting will be a forum for current work on topics such as the following:

  • Discrete geometry; digital topology.
  • Array, graph and parallel grammars; cellular automata.
  • Tilings and patterns.
  • Combinatorial methods in image analysis; combinatorial problems in the discrete plane.
  • Integer-only algorithms for image analysis.
  • Parallel algorithms and parallel architectures for image analysis.
  • Discrete tomography.

  • Prospective authors are invited to submit a paper on any of the above, or a closely related topic, for a 25-minute presentation at the workshop. Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the Instructions for Authors section of the IWCIA 2001 website and should be between 10 and 20 pages. Submissions have to be made electronically by e-mailing a postscript file (which must be viewable by Ghostview; instructions for obtaining Ghostview are in the Instructions for Authors) of the manuscript to

    no later than April 1, 2001.

    Authors will be notified of acceptance by June 1, 2001. The final versions of accepted papers must be received by July 15, 2001 for inclusion in the Proceedings of the workshop, which will be published online in the Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science.

    Each participant will also receive a printed copy of the Proceedings at the workshop. After the meeting, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit to a special issue of the journal Discrete Applied Mathematics that will be devoted to papers from this workshop.
