Research (17)

We will be present with one paper and one tutorial at the Computational Colour Imaging Workshop (CCIW'17), to be held in in Milan, Italy, from March 29th through March 31st, 2017. This is an international forum for research in colour image processing, colour image quality assessment, colour vision modelling, and colour image reproduction. The workshop aims at presenting research that advances the state-of-the-art in these and related areas.

Seminar on texture analysis at QMUL

Scritto da
Texture analysis plays a pivotal role in many machine vision applications including, among the others, product inspection, surface grading, defect detection, content-based image retrieval, computer-assisted diagnosis and remote sensing. This seminar will introduce some basic concepts about texture analysis and will focus on a class of methods known as 'Histogram of Equivalent Patterns'. The concepts treated are accessible to a general technical audience and only require some basic knowledge of image processing. Date: Sep. 22, 2015 - 15:00hrs Queen Mary, University of London Department of Electical and Electronic Engineering Room: ITL Top Floor Seminar Room Speaker: Francesco Bianconi Università degli Studi di Perugia Department of Engineering

The Workshop on Color and Texture in Material Recognition will take place in Genoa, Italy, in conjunction with the 18th International Conference on Image Analysis and Processing (ICIAP), Sept. 7-11, 2015. The workshop will cover different areas of image processing including colour and texture analysis, material perception, remote sensing, medical imaging and industrial inspection. Deadline for paper submission: June 3, 2015.
This presentation show a multibody tool developed by Machine Design research group to be used in the field of Virtual Prototyping, able to allow engineers and designers to evaluate the kinematic and dynamic behavior of rigid, front suspended and full suspended bikes through a paramtric, non linear multibody model. Very interesting could be its application for the estimation of bike fatigue behaviour both in time and in frequency domain.

The Italian patent and trademark office recently approved a patent application about an innovative apparatus for acquiring a plurality of surface images of at least one body and related methods. The invention, which is the result of a cooperation between the Department of Engineering, Mondial Marmi Srl and colleagues from the University of Vigo (Spain) is composed of optical means for image acquisition and one dome-shaped illuminator provided with one inferior basement  to integrally hold the object to acquire. On top of the dome is a rotatable device for revolving the optical means about a rotation axis in a controlled manner. The apparatus is particularly suitable for acquiring images of industrial and hand-made products such as - but not limited to - natural stone, wood, ceramics, textiles, etc.


Reference: Apparato per acquisire una pluralità di immagini di almeno un corpo e relativo metodo (Apparatus to acquire a plurality of images of at least one body and related method), IT patent no. 001413266, filed on July 25, 2012; granted on January 16, 2015. Assignee: Mondial Marmi Srl. Inventors: F. Bianconi, A. Fernández, E. González and S.A. Saetta.

The tumour-stroma ratio (TSR) is an independent prognostic factor in a wide number of oncologic diseases. Accurate and reproducible estimation of TSR therefore plays a central role in patient stratification and follow-up. The use of features directly related to human perception makes it possible to evaluate the tissue's appearance on the basis of a set of meaningful parameters. In this work we proposed and evaluated the capability of the following five visual features to correctly discriminate epithelium from stroma in digitised tissue micro-arrays of colorectal cancer: coarseness, contrast, directionality, line-likeliness and roughness. The experiments demonstrated that the proposed approach can correctly discriminate epithelium from stroma with state-of-the-art accuracy.

The 10th International Conference on Systems will take place in Barcelona, Spain, from April 19 through April 24, 2015. The conference covers fundamentals on designing, implementing, testing, validating and maintaining various kinds of software and hardware systems. Several tracks are proposed to treat the topics from theory to practice, in terms of methodologies, design, implementation, testing, use cases, tools, and lessons learnt. Deadline for full paper submission: Nov 24, 2014.
