What is TC18 ?

The aim of this IAPR-Technical Committee is to promote interactions and collaboration between researchers working on Discrete Geometry and Mathematical Morphology. Conferences and a TC web page provide these opportunities. The topic is not covered by other IAPR-TCs, but has links with some of them.

The main conferences are the Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery (DGCI) conference and International Symposium on Mathematical Morphology (ISMM). DGCI is a series of conferences of which the first was held in 1991 in Strasbourg, and now held every 18 months. It is an international conference by its participants, its scientific committee and its location. Since the 6th DGCI (November 1996), proceedings have been published by Springer Verlag, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. ISMM started two years after DGCI in Barcelona and held every two years and its proceedings are also published in LNCS series. More details about the history of these two conferences are given in the event page.

In combination with each DGCI, a TC meeting is held to give the possibility for the members to discuss the activity of the TC. An electronic newsletter is sent regularly to the members.

The TC18 web page is maintained in order to access easily information on on-going research for researchers active within the field, as well as information on basic notions for researchers in related fields, or interested in starting an activity in discrete geometry. You will find a lot of information on this website, so have a nice visit !
