Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery
DGCI 2006, the 13th in a series of international conferences on Discrete Ge- etry for Computer Imagery, was held in Szeged, Hungary, October 25-27, 2006. DGCI 2006 attracted a large number of research contributions from academic and research institutions in this ?eld. In fact, 99 papers were submitted from all around the world. After review, 55 contributions were accepted from which 28 were selected for oral and 27 for poster presentation. All accepted cont- butions were scheduled in single-track sessions. The program was enriched by three invited lectures, presented by internationally well-known speakers: Jean- Marc Chassery (Domaine Universitaire Grenoble, France), T. Yung Kong (City University of New York, USA), and L´ aszl´oLovasz ´ (E¨ otv¨ os Lor´ and University, Budapest, Hungary). We were pleased that DGCI got the sponsorship of the International Asso- ation of Pattern Recognition (IAPR). DGCI 2006 is also a conference associated with the IAPR Technical Committee on Discrete Geometry (TC18). Hereby, we wouldliketothank allcontributors,theinvitedspeakers,allreviewersandm- bers ofthe Steering andProgramCommittees,andallsupporting personnelwho made the conference happen. We are also grateful to the Institute of Inform- ics, University of Szeged, for the ?nancial and infrastructural help, which was essential to the organization of a successful conference. Finally, we thank all the participantsand hope that they found interest in the scienti?c programand also that they had a pleasant stay in Szeged.
