2007 Computational Color Imaging Workshop

Modena, Italy
September 14, 2007

The 2007 Computational Color Imaging Workshop (CCIW'07) will be held in Modena, Italy, on September 14, 2007. The workshop is held along with the International Conference on Image Analysis and Processing (ICIAP), the main conference on image processing and pattern recognition organized every two years by the Group of Italian Researchers on Pattern Recognition (GIRPR) affiliated with the International Association on Pattern Recognition (IAPR).

Planning this workshop, the organizers would like to focus on the methods and applications of digital color image processing and analysis. The workshop is intended for researchers and practitioners in the digital imaging, multimedia, visual communications, computer vision, and consumer electronic industry, who are interested in the fundamentals of color image processing and its emerging applications in the areas listed bellow:


Computational color vision models


Color constancy


Color image understanding and analysis


Color data compression and encoding


Color image/video indexing and retrieval


Color reproduction (printing, scanning, displays)


Digital photography


Color image filtering and enhancement


Digital color image content protection


Color image/video quality assessment


Multi-spectral and high dynamic range imaging


Applications and future trends

Workshop Program:
Twelve papers, covering different topics and research directions in computational color imaging were selected for the presentation at the CCIW'07 workshop. It is believed that the selected papers well document importance and challenges of computational color imaging and can provide a good starting point for the valued discussion of the workshop participants.
