Every year, the technical committee writes a report on its activities for the IAPR. Here are some reports of the last few years: interim report 2014-2015 report 2012-2014 interim report 2013 report 2014-2016

For members

An electronic newsletter is sent to the members two or three times every year. It presents a summary of the activities and upcoming events.

During each DGCI (Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery - main conference for TC18), a TC meeting is held to give the possibility for the members to discuss the activity of the TC.

Suggestion on the activity of TC18 and modifications of the TC18 web page are warmly welcome.

Please, indicate also if you want to have an active role in TC18. What we have in mind so far is to find persons willing to collect information for and to update web pages containing

  • lists of reference literature.
  • documents on basic notions. This can be, for example, presentations used to give introductory lectures or seminars.
  • databases with reference images to be used for comparison between the performance for algorithms.
  • lists of open problems. For this one, we already have a link to the web page on open problems by Reinhard Klette.

In case you have problems with the web based form, or to modify some information, or to unsubscribe, please send an email to tc18 board. To register, please give the following information:
