IEEE International Conference on IMAGING SYSTEMS and TECHNIQUES July 1-2 2010 Thessaloniki, Greece IST2010 deals with the design, development, evaluation and applications of imaging systems, instrumentation, and measuring techniques, to enhance detection and image quality. Applications for aerospace, medicine and biology, molecular imaging, metrology, ladar and lidars, radars, homeland security, and industrial imaging with emphasis on industrial tomography, corrosion imaging, and non-destructive evaluation will be covered. Papers in the following areas are encouraged: - Detector design principles and image formation - Imaging system design and instrumentation - Image measurements and signal analysis - Linear and non-linear processing techniques - Medical imaging and bio-nano-photonics - Environmental monitoring, energy resources - Molecular imaging and metabolic imaging - Remote sensing, passive and active sensing - Subsurface inspection, corrosion imaging - Radiation detection, airport security and cargo Inspection - Electromagnetic Imaging and inverse scattering - Polarimetric Imaging and lasers IMPORTAT DATES: - Abstract due: 21 February 2010 - Notification of acceptance: 10 March 2010 - Full paper due: 5 May 2010 INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS: Prospective authors should submit an extended abstract of 3 to 4 pages in length, including figures, tables and references. Shorter submissions may be automatically rejected. The extended abstract should summarize the scope of the paper and the primary results and findings, emphasizing new advances, theories and/or applications so that the program committee will be able to understand the originality and the value of the work.
