Resumen del proyecto

CATMI2011 (October, 17-20, 2011)  focus on the area of Computational Algebraic Topology applied to Medical Digital Imagery. The CATMI2011 advanced course and workshop is mainly aimed at PhD students and young researchers in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Physics, Image Engineering, Mathematical Medicine and Computational Medicine interested in Computational Algebraic Topology and Medical Imagery and the interaction between these areas. 

In CATMI2011 Advanced course, experts in the fields of classical Algebraic Topology, Computational Algebraic Topology, Software Development, Computational Harmonic Analysis and Medical Imagery will give introductory talks on the respective topics in which they are specialists. In CATMI2011 workshop, there will be contributed talks trying to give us some insights of the potencial of the methods of this mathematical discipline in Medical Imaging and to open some research lines concerning algebraic topological problems in Medical Image Context. PhD Students and young researchers are strongly encouraged to submit a poster to the Poster Track.

The aim of this event is to generate strong relationships between certain areas of medical digital imagery (such as representation, compression, simplification, recognition, visualization and others) and methods of computational algebraic topology.

This advanced course & workshop is organized by the Andalusian research group FQM-296 "CATAM: Computational Algebraic Topology and Applied Mathematics" and the research team of the MICINN project MTM2009-12716 "Exploiting Homology within the context of the 4D Digital Imagery" 

It is sponsored by the "ACAT:Applied and Computational Algebraic Topology" ESF project (European Science Foundation-Research Networking Program), Red Española de Topología (RET)Ingenio Mathematica (i-Math)Instituto de Matemáticas de la Universidad de Sevilla (IMUS), and Plan Propio de Investigación de la Universidad de Sevilla

As collaborations, we mention the following institutions: Grupo de Innovación Tecnológica del Hospital Universitario Virgen del Rocío, Fundación Plenum (CADPET SA y CERCO SA), Fundación FIDETIA andDepartment of Applied Mathematics I of Seville University.
