Scientific and industrial image processing

Continuous learning is growing more and more important for a number of reasons. The knowledge we acquired during our academic and technical studies simply cannot keep up with the rapid developments in science and technology.

An increase in specialization has to be compensated by interdisciplinary knowledge to allow effective team work between specialists from different areas of expertise.

AEON offers a first-class training program on key image processing tasks. It builds on the long-standing organization of the Heidelberg Image Processing forum in collaboration with the Heidelberg Collaboratory for Image Processing.

The rationale of these courses is:

  • One-day training classes focus on key interdisciplinary topics.
  • Theory and practical exercises combined optimally. As much theory as necessary to put participants in a position to follow the topic at hand. Only a minimum of specialized knowledge needs to be memorized to understand and master even complex situations.
  • Limited number of participants for each class to allow content to be adapted to the participants' individual and enough time for questions and interaction with the speaker.
  • Participants may send in specific questions around the central topic. These will be directly covered as part of the course.

Camera users today are faced with a wealth of different image sensors. In addition to classical CCD sensors, an increasing choice of CMOS sensors become available. Which image sensor is most appropriate for a given image processing task?

Computational Imaging

In the past, image acquisition techniques and image processing were considered to be mostly independent of each other. However, people working in the field are aware that many problems can only be solved by carefully balancing both to solve the actual task at hand. So far, there are only empirical formulas and little in the way of solid fundamentals.

3-D image acquisition techniques

3-D image acquisition and processing techniques are undergoing rapid development, impacting applications in the consumer area, in broadcasting, industrial inspection and various scientific applications.
