Minerva Short-Term Research Grants

Minerva is issuing a call for applications for Minerva Short-Term Research Grants for 2003.

The primary goal of Minerva Short-Term Research Grants (MRG) is to give young German and Israeli scientists the opportunity to visit research partners or to establish contacts with scientists in the respective guest country. The grants also allow the scientists to participate in seminars and workshops, particularly as guest speakers. The short-term grants are for stays of a minimum of 1 week and up to 8 weeks. MRG are available for all subject areas and are open to applicants from all research facilities and universities in Germany and Israel.

The closing date for this call is 20 May 2003.

For further details and the application form please refer to the Minerva homepage at: www.minerva.mpg.de

Morphological Image Analysis: Principles and Applications.

2nd edition
by Pierre Soille
Springer-Verlag, Heidelberg 2003.

Following the success of the first edition, recent developments in the field of morphological image analysis called for an extended second edition. The text has been fully revised with the goal of improving its clarity while introducing new concepts of interest to real image analysis applications.

The book has grown by 25 percent leading to a total of 391 pages (including 39 additional figures, 3 new tables, 93 extra bibliographical references, as well as 1 supplementary index). This increase has been distributed more or less evenly across all chapters. More precisely, beyond a new chapter devoted to texture analysis, main additions include: processing of multichannel images, ordering relations on image partitions, connected operators and levellings, homotopy for grey tone images, translation-invariant implementations of erosions and dilations by line segments, reinforced emphasis on rank-based morphological operators, grey tone hit-or-miss, order independent homotopic thinnings and anchored skeletons, self-dual geodesic transformation and reconstruction, area based self-dual filters, anti-centre, and new scientific and industrial applications.

This self-contained book will be of value to engineers, scientists, and other practitioners interested in the analysis and processing of digital images.
