    IAPR TC 16

    "Algebraic and Discrete Mathematical Techniques in Pattern Recognition

    and Image Analysis"

    Activity Report for 1.07.2006 - 31.10.2008.

    The TC16 was proposed by the Russian Federation "Association for Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis" and created in 1996 (at the meeting of the IAPR Governing Board in Vienna, 13th ICPR).

    The main goals of TC 16 are discussion of actual and prospective lines of research and exchange of the results in Algebraic and Discrete Mathematical Problems and Techniques inspired by Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis. The means which TC 16 uses to achieve the goals are more or less standard for IAPR TCs: the organization of workshops and conferences, the preparation of publications (survey articles, state of the art and position papers, tutorials, etc.), the design of databases, support of communication between members, exchange by results, creation and collection of educational materials, etc.

    We consider also as a very important matter to give the Algebraic and Discrete Mathematical community involved in Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis an opportunity to know each other better and to communicate regularly.

    The main points of TC16 activity after 18th ICPR are in brief as follows:

    1. Extension and confirmation of PR&IA scientists and professionals its membership in the

    Committee. Now it includes 95 members (Asia, Europe, Russian Federation, USA, Central

    nd South America). It was distributed new call for TC16 participation (via IAPR member a

    societies and directly to potential members via e-mail).

2. Meetings of TC16:

    ; ICPR’2006, Hong-Kong, China, August 2006;

    ; VISAPP’2007,Barcelona, Spain, March 2007;

    ; 7th Open German/Russian Workshop on PATTERN RECOGNITION and IMAGE

    UNDERSTANDING (OGRW-7-2007), Ettlingen, Germany, August, 2007;

    ; 9th International Conference "Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis: New Information

    3. TC16 is one of the principal organizers of the following international conferences: ; The 13th Russian Federation Conference "MATHEMATICAL TRCHNIQUES FOR

    PATTERN RECOGNITION”, St.-Petersburg, The Russian Federation, September, 2007;

     7th Open German/Russian Workshop on PATTERN RECOGNITION and IMAGE ;

    UNDERSTANDING (OGRW-7-2007), Ettlingen, Germany, August, 2007;

    ; 8th International Conference "Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis: New Information

    Technologies" (PRIA-8-2007), Yoshkar-Ola, Mari El Republic, Russian Federation, October,

    2007;

    ; The First International Workshop on Image Mining. Theory and Applications (IMTA-2008),

    January, 2008 - Funchal, Madeira Portugal

    ; 9th International Conference "Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis: New Information

    Technologies" (PRIA-9-2008), Nizhny Novgorod, Russian Federation, September, 2008; ; The Second International Workshop on Image Mining. Theory and Applications (IMTA-

    2009), February, 2009 Lisbon, Portugal.

    4. The list of break-through research topics in algebraization of image analysis and recognition was updated and discussed by TC 16 members. The current version is presented at the TC 16 site.

    5. a. The survey "Image Algebras. Part I” was prepared. The final version will be presented at the

    TC 16 site and will be open for discussion. The survey will be published in international

    journal "Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis. Advances in Mathematical Theory and

    Applications", 2009, V. 20, and in a volume in Springer series “Studies in Computational

    Intelligence.

    ; b. The tutorial The Algebraic Approaches and Techniques in Image Analysis” was

    presented at the 9th International Conference "Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis: New

    Information Technologies" (PRIA-9-2008), Nizhny Novgorod, Russian Federation,

    September, 2008, and is included into the program of ICPR’2008, Tampa, US, December,

    2008;

.

    6. The main line of scientific interests of TC 16 now and in foreseeable future will be focused on the following topics:

    a) image algebras, image super-algebras, graded image algebras;

    b) mathematical techniques for image mining;

    c) image models;

    d) image spaces;

    e) informational nature of an image;

    f) algebraic models of pattern recognition and image analysis algorithms;

    g) pattern recognition algorithms based on algebras and discrete mathematics; h) image metrics;

    i) image equivalence;

    j) algebraic approach to the knowledge representation and processing in pattern recognition and

    image analysis problems;

    k) algebraic and logical techniques application in image databases and knowledge bases; l) image algebras applications.

    7. The normalization and regularization of terminology being used in the subject domain "Mathematical Theory of Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis" is a crucial and critical problem for theory and applications of modern Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis techniques and tools. There are, at least, two fields where the absence of widely accepted and logically ordered terminology is a serious obstacle to further development and activity: automation of pattern recognition and image analysis, image mining and data mining, and conference paper reviewing.

    In 2005 TC 16 began the construction of bilingual thesaurus for the subject domain "Mathematical Theory of Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis". The development of a working version of the thesaurus was completed. It is used currently as a base for constructing the ontology of the subject domain "Mathematical Theory of Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis".

    TC 16 needs financial support from IAPR for maintaining the development of ontology.

    8. TC 16 collects and prepares to presentation at the TC 16 site different kind of educational materials. It is planned to use the developing ontology for ordering and structuring of these data.

    9. TC 16 began collecting, creating and preparing to presentation at the TC 16 site bibliographical lists, lists of INTERNET resources and publications in the fields of TC 16 interests. It is planned to use the developing ontology for ordering and structuring of these data.

10. The WWW homepage for the TC 16 was opened - http://www.ccas.ru/TC16.

The main points of TC 16 activity for the years of 2008 2010 are as follows:

    1. Attraction of new members. Geographical and professional extension of TC 16 membership.

    2. Monitoring the state-of-the art in algebraization of image analysis and recognition.

    3. Updating and discussing of the list of break-through research topics in the algebraization of image analysis and recognition.

    4. Updating and discussing the list of challenging and interesting research problems.

    5. Promotion of topics representing TC 16 field of competence into topics and keywords of

    IAPR sponsored conferences.

6. The meetings of TC16 are preliminary planned during:

    a) ICPR’2008, Tampa, US, December, 2008;

    b) The Second International Workshop on Image Mining. Theory and Applications (IMTA-

    2009), February, 2009 Lisbon, Portugal;

    ANALYSIS:NEW INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES (PRIA-10-2008)", St.-Petersburg,

    The Russian Federation, October 2010;

    7. Preparation and submission to IAPR proposal for construction of bilingual thesaurus and ontology the subject domain "Mathematical Theory of Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis".

    8. Collection, creation and preparation for presentation at the site different kinds of educational materials.

    10. Preparation and submission to IAPR proposal for construction of the test-bed for automation of comparing and testing of image recognition algorithms.

    Conclusion

    We consider that TC16 works and made positive contribution into IAPR activity and into development of the algebraization of pattern recognition and image analysis, and to development of mathematical theory of pattern recognition and image analysis in a whole.. We are confident that in the future its activity will be intensified and extended.

    We would like to stress that we consider the exchange of ideas and informal discussions between scientists and professionals in the field as one of the most important features and instruments of TC 16. We ascertain that the TC16 prospers in this line.
