This book comprises the papers of the Special Track on Applications of the 17th International Workshop on Combinatorial Image Analysis, IWCIA 2015, which was held at the Indian Statistical Institute in Kolkata, November 24-27, 2015.
After a rigorous review process including three double-blind reviews per paper by members of the program committee, 6 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 2015 and for publication in the present volume.
Readership: Researchers and engineers with an interest in computer vision, image processing and computer graphics.
