Subject: Visualization and Computation Intelligence, deadline March 1, 2001


Technical Session: Visualization and Computation Intelligence

to be held in conjunction with

The 2001 International Conference on
Imaging Science, Systems, and Technology
June 25 - 28, 2001
Monte Carlo Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Computation intelligence and visualization methods are important tools for decision support in imaging science. The goal of this session to discuss the blending of these two areas to improve decision making for variety of applications from medicine to defense. Specifically, the session will consider the role of both methods from their theoretical base through specific applications. Sample areas of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Conflation (fusion) of maps with different resolution and associated possibly contradictory information,
  • Support of medical imaging decision making, and
  • Support of geospatial decision-making tasks.
Computation intelligence methods such as data mining, "expert" mining, machine learning, reasoning strategies, expert systems, fuzzy logic and neural networks discover hidden patterns and visualization methods present them to domain experts in an appropriate form. On the other hand, visualization helps domain experts to discover hidden patterns (correlations) directly augmenting computational intelligence methods. For domain experts discovering and visualization of hidden patterns is important but only a part of their decision making process. This session invites papers, which will address problems of decision support by using discovered and visualized patterns.


Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper (about 4 to 5 pages) to session organizers Boris Kovalerchuk or Jim Schwing by March 1, 2001. E-mail and Fax submissions are encourages. The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to 7 pages. Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.

The first page of the draft paper should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation, postal address, E-mail address, telephone number, and Fax number for each author. The first page should also include the name of the author who will be presenting the paper (if accepted) and a maximum of 5 keywords.
