Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Department of Informatics, Computer Vision and Image Processing Group
The computer vision and digital image processing team at the University of Thessaloniki is an active research group working for more than one decade in multimedia/digital image processing and related areas.
It consists of two faculty members and ten PhD students. Its topics of interest span the areas of digital image/video processing, computer vision, watermarking and IPR protection, biometrics, cultural heritage conservation, 3D image medical image processing, distance learning, virtual reality in medicine/dentistry.
As a result of this research more than 370 publications in international scientific journals, and conference proceedings, 7 books and 14 book chapters have been published. Such books are "Nonlinear Digital Filters: Principles and Applications" (Kluwer, 1990), '3D image processing algorithms' (Wiley 2000), "Digital Image Processing Algorithms" (Prentice Hall, 1993), 'Digital image processing algorithms and applications' (Wiley 2000), 'Digital image processing' (in Greek, 1999), "Parallel Algorithms and Architectures for Digital Image Processing, Computer Vision and Neural Networks" (Wiley, 1993), 'Nonlinear Model-Based Image/Video Processing and Analysis' (Wiley 2000).
The group has strong cooperation with other Universities, research centers and industrial partners in the area of its interests through projects mainly funded by the European community.
