Call for Abstracts

will be continued until January 31, 1999

The EUROMECH 406 Colloquium aims to create a common platform for groups working on development and application of modern image acquisition and image processing methods in fluid and solid mechanics. Recent progress in image recording and analysis techniques has introduced revolutionary changes into experimental methods in mechanics. However, we often observe that the development of image processing techniques in both fields of mechanics proceeds on parallel paths, very often solving similar problems without knowing from each others work. The EUROMECH 406 meeting should help participants to gain knowledge and allow critical assessment of similarities or differences between image processing methods used in applied mechanics today.

Proposed topics of the meeting:
1. Pattern recognition, analysis of size, shape and deformation
2. Motion analysis, full field measurements of velocity
3. Thermography (infrared, liquid crystals), scalar field measurements
4. Stress and strain analysis
5. Structure analysis, measurement of species concentration
6. Three-dimensional image analysis, tomography
7. New image acquisition methods: high speed & high resolution techniques.

A small Abstract Volume will be published and provided to participants. Please check here for recommended format of an extended abstract (max. 4 pages).

Our conference has been setup to use the services of Atlas Mathematical Conference Abstracts.
All conference participants are asked to submit short version of their abstracts at
The submitted short abstracts can be viewed at
Every short abstract submitted there will be "World-Wide" visible.

Authors are encouraged to submit full papers, not later than at the Conference, to be published in a special issue of Machine Graphics & Vision.
The papers submitted to this special issue should satisfy the general editorial requirements of the Journal.
