SIAG on Imaging Science


[edit] Research Focus

In recent decades, the analysis of 2D and 3D images and video has become vital to many areas of science, medicine, engineering, manufacturing and entertainment. Typical objectives include image formation, compression, reconstruction, restoration, registration, motion recovery, tracking, feature extraction and semantic interpretation. Moreover, recent developments in the technology of imaging have also contributed to the explosive growth in the highly interdisciplinary field of "imaging science," generating new mathematical problems which cut across disciplines.

At the same time, increasingly sophisticated mathematical, statistical, and computational methods are being employed in these areas. The techniques utilized, besides those from traditional areas of mathematics, often originate in fields such as information theory, computer graphics, machine learning and speech technology, and include those based on linear transforms, harmonic analysis, nonlinear optimization, numerical linear algebra, integral equations, partial differential equations, differential geometry, statistical estimation and stochastic modeling.

[edit] Joining the Imaging Science SIAG

Membership in SIAG/IS is open to all members of SIAM. You can join online by filling out this form.

[edit] Mailing List

The activity group maintains a mailing list at Members may submits posts on job openings, conference and short-course announcements, recent book publications and PhD thesis announcements, along with other items of interest to the entire SIAM imaging community. The list is moderated by the secretary of SIAG/IS and posts should be approved within a few days of submission.

To sign up for the mailing list or to view the list archive, go to

[edit] SIAM Imaging Science Prize

The SIAM Imaging Science Prize is awarded to recognize outstanding papers on the mathematical and computational aspects of imaging. The 2012 prize was awarded to Rodrigo Palma-Amestoy, Edoardo Provenzi, Marcelo Bertalmio, and Vicent Caselles for their work on color enhancement.

General information of the prize can be found on the SIAM website.
