Topological Image Analysis: Methods, Algorithms, ApplicationsMS16

Topological data analysis is having a relevant impact on imaging science, since it supplies an efficient way of extracting qualitative information and making it available for quantitative comparison. This minisymposium will provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of recent developments in topological analysis of images and visual data. The presentations will address the exposition of new theoretical results and techniques based on topology, algebraic topology and geometry for interpreting and understanding the information contained in images.
