This workshop will be an intensive two-day workshop concentrating on current approaches to image analysis, including harmonic analysis, statistical modeling, mathematical techniques of perceptual organization, and variational methods. It will bring together advanced graduate students, recent postdocs and established mathematicians, and is intended to lead into the Introductory Workshop in Mathematical, Computational and Statistical Aspects of Image Analysis .
