Special Workshops:

[] Medical Imaging Systems
In recent years, extensive research has been performed to develop more
and more efficient and powerful medical imaging systems. Such systems
are crucial for medical specialists, allowing a deeper analysis and to
understand what is going inside the human body, and therefore they
play an essential role for adequate medical diagnosis and treatments.
To accomplish efficient and powerful medical imaging systems, many
research works have being done in many domains, like the ones related
with medical image devices, signal processing, image processing and
analysis, biomechanical simulation and data visualization.
The main goal of the Workshop "Medical Imaging Systems" is to bring
together researchers involved in the related domains, in order to set
the major lines of development for the near future.
Therefore, the proposed Workshop will consist of researchers
representing various fields related to Medical Devices, Signal
Processing, Computational Vision, Computer Graphics, Computational
Mechanics, Scientific Visualization, Mathematics and Medical Imaging.
The Workshop endeavors to contribute to obtain better solutions for
more efficient and powerful medical imaging systems, and attempts to
establish a bridge between clinicians and researchers from these
diverse fields.

The proposed Workshop will cover topics related with medical imaging
systems, such as:
* image acquisition
* signal processing
* image processing and analysis
* modelling and simulation
* computer aided diagnosis
* surgery, therapy, and treatment
* computational bioimaging and visualization * software development *
virtual reality * telemedicine systems and their applications

[] D-TV
In contrast to traditional TV DTV is a telecommunication system for
broadcasting and receiving moving pictures and sound by means of
digital signals. It uses digitally compressed modulation data, which
requires decoding by a specially designed television set or a standard
receiver (set-top box) as well as via PC-TV based on ADLS (VDSL).
Digital Television has several advantages regarding technically as
well as content and programme related aspects. One of the most
significant is the use of a smaller channel bandwidth.
This frees up space for more digital channels, other non-television
services such as pay-multimedia services and the generation of new
revenue models based on interactive advertisement and marketing
features. Furthermore there are special services such as multicasting
(more than one programme on the same channel), electronic programme
guides and interactivity providing a wider range of application.
Accordingly within the last year a growing up of specialised digital
TV channels (Special Interest Channels) has to be observed European
This new growing up stream is mainly characterised by the phenomena of
merging television
(TV) and information technology (IT) know how, methods and techniques.
In this context the workshop targets to show up the development in
directions: the technically aspects as well as the content and
programme issues. It provides a presentation and discussion platform
for exchanging experiences made within the establishment as well as
the maintenance of digital special interest channels. Main focus will
be to point out the interdependencies and the mutual influences of
technically streams and content respectively service related issues.
