4th International Conference on Image Processing Theory, Tools and Applications


IEEE Xplore: The IPTA'14 proceedings is now available on IEEE Xplore Digital Library:


The fourth edition of the international Conference on Image Processing Theory, Tools and Applications IPTA'14 aims at gathering challenging international researchers, innovators, educators, and practitioners in image processing theory and tools, for attending extensive educational high level materials, sharing their achievements, exchanging their experiences and discussing future orientations.

The conference will also offer an opportunity to fill the gap between image processing researchers and people working in other application fields such as doctors, radiotherapists and industrial parts. Closer link will be focused on between image processing algorithms and the way to implement these algorithms for best performances. To address these challenges and explore these new opportunities, the conference aims to provide an excellent forum for all experts in these areas to meet and discuss various important issues on image processing and applications.

Papers describing general surveys, image processing fundamental theory, specific medical imaging applications, advanced prototypes, tools and methodologies are welcomed. Extended papers describing original contributions are encouraged in the conference topics mentioned above. Special sessions papers, dedicated to different conference topics are also welcomed.


All accepted papers and presented by one of the authors will be published and indexed by IEEE Xplore, published in conference proceeding under an ISBN reference and in CD-ROM support. Will be also indexed by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI) and Scopus.


Accepted papers are subject of selection by the following journals. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality.
