Shadi Ashnai
Words of Welcome with Shadi Ashnai Image Processing and Analysis Quick Start with Shadi Ashnai Mathematica 9 exhibits more sophisticated and highly optimized image processing and analysis capabilities than ever before. This talk is a quick introduction to the broad range of interactive tools and powerful functions for image enhancement, segmentation, registration, feature detection, tracking, and more. Many of the functions can be applied to 2- and 3-dimensional images as well as higher-dimensional data. Using out-of-core technology, Mathematica can cope with huge 2D or 3D images.

Serious and Not-So-Serious Image Processing Applications with Markus van Almsick In this talk, we will discuss how to apply Mathematica's large range of image processing tools to problem solving in several different application areas. Methods to construct robust algorithms that overcome the stumbling blocks that visual data has to offer will be presented. Image processing tasks are visually appealing by their nature, and we increase the fun by including some not-so-serious image processing examples.

Taking a Deep Look into 3D Data: Volumetric Rendering and Processing with Markus van Almsick Volumetric rendering is best known by its prominent application in medicine, where it is being used to display computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. Obviously, this visualization technique extends to any application area involving dense 3-dimensional datasets, such as geology or materials science. Mathematica 9 introduces volumetric rendering via the visualization primitives Raster3D and Image3D. These 3-dimensional data expressions add a new dimension to most of our image processing commands and allow the interactive, in-depth investigation of 3-dimensional arrays. In this talk, we will explain the principles of volume rendering and the art of constructing the right transfer functions. We will explore the drawbacks and extravagant possibilities of this new visualization modality and apply it to real-world data.
