Complex Image Processing for Monitoring and Diagnosis (code: sy69u)

Organizers: Dan Popescu, Loretta Ichim

The session aims to underline the intrinsic connection between complex image processing, on one hand, and two important actions in different fields: monitoring and diagnosis, on the other hand. The applications of complex images like texture and fractals in domains like: industry, medicine, agriculture, environment, transportation and so on, needs interdisciplinary knowledge and effectively solve many encountered problems. This special session provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss advances in the research and development of intelligent systems for complex image processing and interpretation based on efficient feature selection in the field of monitoring and diagnosis.

All session papers need to have a high scientific level and will be selected based on their relevance to the session topics. The included topics are the following (but not limited): Criteria for feature selection, Image processing for real time control, Traffic control based on images, Medical diagnostic systems based on complex image processing, Assistive technologies based on image processing, UAV and robot guidance based on image interpretation, Quality control based on image processing, Fractal analysis, Texture analysis, Parallel processing of images.

Human Computer Interaction (code: 1a868)

Organizers: Runar Unnthorsson, Pawel Strumillo, Simona Caraiman, Adrian Burlacu

The interactions between humans and systems have evolved tremendously due to the rapid changes in information technologies. The many possibilities opened by this evolution can have an impact on most aspects of human life, including health care, government, education, science, business and entertainment. Efficiently designing and evaluating the interaction with computer-based systems can greatly improve the strength and efficiency of the human activity.

This session intends to serve as a platform for exchanging ideas, knowledge and experiences in interactions between man and systems. We welcome submissions describing original research on various aspects of this highly multi-disciplinary topic, involving theories, methodologies, technologies, empirical and experimental studies.

We highlight a few topics of interest, but the session can extend beyond them: Human Computer Interaction (HCI) for assistive technologies, Interaction in virtual and augmented reality environments, Mobile HCI, Multi-modal interfaces, Natural user interfaces, Non–verbal interfaces, Applications of machine learning in HCI, Gesture and eye–gaze based interaction, Haptic user interfaces, Information visualization, Usability: evaluation methods and techniques, user experience.

Propagation – Delays – Control (code: 45ek6)

Organizers: Daniela Danciu, Vladimir Rasvan, Dan Popescu

Propagation phenomena, modeled by partial differential equations (PDEs), are ubiquitous and widely studied as mathematical objects but also as challenging processes to be understood, modeled, predicted, controlled. They can be encountered within different scientific areas (physics, chemistry, biology etc.) as well as in different engineering applications within various domains such as fluid dynamics, energy, mechanics, biochemical reactions, blood flow, weather and climate changes, waves, long lines from electrotechnics and communications, heating, aerodynamics and so on.

Time delays affect the dynamics of both linear and nonlinear dynamical processes and may even induce instabilities. The qualitative analysis as well as the control of time delay systems are necessary tasks in engineering applications within different research fields. Several approaches can be considered in tackling these subjects for both the lumped or distributed delays along some process.

This invited session addresses these two strong inter- and multi-disciplinary research areas and aims to create a discussion forum for new results dealing with (but not restricted to) mathematical modeling, control and applications for propagation phenomena and time delays.

Real Time Process Control (code: 7ygak)

Organizers: Ciprian Lupu, Dumitru Popescu

The session offers a framework for presentations of research that bring interesting and relevant contributions in the field of real time applications, using advanced automatic concepts in the Energy Industry, Petrochemical Industry, Water, Gas and Heat Utilities Network and other areas of technical and economic interest.

Papers that will be appreciated should offer modern solutions related to the modeling, control and optimization of control systems structures, and should be supported by an adequate theoretical background, implemented and validated on real-time operating configurations.
