Dear EUROPT members,

this message my draw our attention to one more valuable
scientific event which we are looking for in 2006 and where
our friends Prof. A. Kuba, Prof. Kalman Palagyi and Prof.
L.G. Nyul draw our attention to. In fact, as I could learn from
our EUROPT member and teacher Attila Kuba (University of
Szeged, Hungary), there is such a promising potential for
continuous optimization in image processing, discrete
tomography, etc.. Thank you, dear Attila!

There will be    

              "13th International Conference on
        Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery"

         October 25-27, 2006, Szeged, Hungary.

Please find the First Call for Papers subsequently.

Not to be forgotten: A sincere welcome to our new
members! You and we all count uniquely, one by one
and all together and serving our peoples - we are EUROPT!

With best wishes,
yours sincerely,

Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber


PS: Among other precious events, please let us not miss ...

-  "ISPRS 2005"  Spatial Data Mining Workshop,
    Ankara, Turkey, November 24-25, 2005,

-  5th EUROPT Workshop
   "Advances in Continuous Optimization",
   Reykjavik, Iceland, June 30 - July 1, 2006,

-  EURO XXI 2006,
   Reykjavik, Iceland, July 2-5, 2006,
Now, the annoucement of our three friends comes:



       13th International Conference on
       Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery

       October 25-27, 2006





   Deadline for paper submission:     April 3, 2006
   Notification of acceptance:        June  3, 2006
   Deadline for camera ready version:   July  3, 2006



DGCI'2006 is  the 13th in  the series of international  conferences
on Discrete  Geometry  for  Computer  Imagery. The aim is to
gather researchers in discrete geometry and topology, discrete models,
with applications in image analysis and image synthesis.

Discrete  geometry plays an expanding role in the fields of  
shape modelling, image synthesis, and image analysis. It  
deals  with topological and geometric definitions of digitized
objects or digitized images and  provides both  a theoretical  
and computational framework for computer imaging.

This edition of DGCI follows the successful 2005 edition held  
in Poitiers, France. It is organized by the Department  of  
Image Processing and Computer Graphics (Institute of Informatics,
University of Szeged). It will take place in Szeged, Hungary
from October 25 to October 27, 2006.

The conference will offer  invited  talks, lectures on selected
articles, presentations of  selected posters, and demonstrations.
The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer
Verlag, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.



Original  and unpublished  papers are  welcome, concerning  
theory and applications on:

- Discrete and Combinatorial Topology
- Models for Discrete Geometry
- Geometric Transforms
- Surfaces and Volumes
- Discrete Shape Representation
- Discrete Tomography
- Discrete and Combinatorial Image Analysis
- Morphological Analysis
- Shape Recovery
- Image Generation and Reconstruction
- Visualization



Prospective contributors are encouraged to submit papers and to attend
DGCI  2006. Each paper  will be  reviewed by  at least  two reviewers.
Accepted papers will be  included in the proceedings volume, published
by Springer-Verlag in the series Lecture Notes
in Computer Science.


Full  details  of  the conference  can  be  found  on our  website  at

Please pass on this email to any colleagues who may be interested.

We look forward to welcoming you to Szeged for DGCI 2006.

A. Kuba, K. Palagyi, L.G. Nyul
organizers of DGCI 2006
