This book comprises the papers of the Special Track on Applications of the 14th International Workshop on Combinatorial Image Analysis (IWCIA 2011) held in Madrid, Spain, May 23-25, 2011
After a rigorous review process including three double-blind reviews per paper by members of the program committee, 12 papers were accepted for oral presentation at the Special Track and for inclusion in this volume. The most important selection criterion for acceptance or rejection of a paper was the overall score received. Other criteria included: relevance to the workshop topics, correctness, originality, mathematical depth, clarity, and presentation quality.We believe that as a result, only high quality papers have been accepted for presentation at IWCIA 2011 and for publication in the present volume.
The scientific program of the Workshop included presentations of contributed papers, as well as keynote talks by four distinguished researchers: Jake Aggarwal, Valentin Brimkov, Concettina Guerra, and Sebastián Cerdán
Readership: Researchers and engineers with an interest in computer vision, image processing and computer graphics.
