(Switzerland); Akram Aldroubi, Vanderbilt Univ.; Andrew F. Laine, Columbia

Program Committee: Jean-Pierre Antoine, Univ. Catholique de Louvain
(Belgium); Richard G. Baraniuk, Rice Univ.; John J. Benedetto,
Univ. of Maryland/College Park; Douglas P. Hardin, Vanderbilt Univ.;
Dennis M. Healy, Jr., DARPA/Dartmouth College; Bjorn D. Jawerth,

Keynote Speaker: Wim Sweldens, Lucent Technologies/Bell Labs.

The analysis of signals and images at multiple scales is an attractive
framework for many problems in computer vision and signal and image
processing. Wavelet theory provides a mathematically precise
understanding of the concept of multiresolution. This conference,
which is open to researchers in mathematics, signal and image
processing, computer vision, medical imaging, and physics, will focus
on novel applications of wavelet-based signal analysis and processing
methods, refinements of existing techniques, and new theoretical
developments. One of the primary goals will be to facilitate
interdisciplinary exchange and to generate cross-fertilization between
these various fields of research.

Topics for the conference may include but are not limited to:

* wavelet compression, coding
* wavelet theory and multirate filterbanks
* frames and over-complete representations
* multiresolution algorithms
* Gabor transforms and space-frequency localization
* wavelet-based noise reduction and restoration
* wavelet-based feature extraction and detection
* wavelet texture analysis and segmentation
* wavelet-based fractal analysis
* multiscale random processes
* wavelets and approximation theory
* image representations from wavelet maxima or zero-crossings
* wavelets in medical imaging.

Note: Please follow the submission instructions. In addition, please submit
an extended abstract of 2 pages plus as many figures as needed (instead of
the 250 words), and replace the brief biography by a summary cover sheet
that includes:
1. Description of the problem addressed: why is it important?
2. What is the original contribution of this work: how does it compare
with other authors? Do NOT submit abstracts with figures by email,
use FAX or regular MAIL only.

Abstract Due Date: 21 December 1998
Manuscript Due Date: 21 June 1999
