All work within EUDEM2 is related to information gathering, analysis and structuring, dissemination through appropriate ICT media, primarily internet. The active approach that was succesful within EUDEM, the precursor of EUDEM2, will be continued. th...

Compression of images and videosequences

The purpose of this project is to investigate a large variety of applications requiring generic compression techniques, among which there are telecommunication and multimedia applications. Some of these applications require a high measurement precisi...

Research into the effect of nanometer technology on the evolution of integrated circuits. Part I: Components

The use of nanometer technology allows integrated circuits to contain devices and interconnections with dimensions below 0.1 micrometers. People believe power dissipation in devices and interconnect lines will prevent a further down scaling of IC tec...

Sammie project - An advanced solution for the Euopean Medical intra-hospital market

SAMMIE (1/1/96 - 31/8/97) is geared for improving the telematics infrastructure in hospital departments. The objective of the SAMMIE project is to provide and test CLINWORKS, a multifunctional departmental system consisting of three main modules...

Generic approach to manufacturable optoelectronic interconnects for VSLI circuits (OIIC)

In this project we want to find solutions to the difficulties of electronic interconnects to handle high thoughput data transfer within and between silicon VSLI chips. The project will demonstrate the advantages of high-throughput optical chip&#...

Scientific Image Processing Systems Community

The research community is a network funded by FWO which includes the major Flemish university departments which are working in the domain of image processing: KUL, VUB, UA, IMEC, UG, LUC. The main goal of this network is the exchange of information b...

Adding images to an integrated multimedia patient record

The basic research and prototype developments of this project should lead to new developments in : (1) the integration of images into the patient medical record and (2) remote expert consultancy and image-based co-operation between experts....

System aspects of multimedia servers for telepublishing

The aim of this IWT project, organised by BARCO GRAPHICS, is to develop the software technology for operating a multi-media server for telepublishing applications. The server will be used primarily in pre-press and printing companies where ...

Parallel algorithms for image processing

Digital image processing tasks are highly computational intensive, because of the vast amount of data that must be processed, the real time character of many applications in this area as well as their complexity. This project proposes to carry out r...

Generic tools for digital image processing and computer vision

The research on 'Generic Tools' consists of the development of new image processing algorithms and of the (parameter) tuning of both new and existing algorithms, so that they can be applied on different types of images and in various applicatio...

Synthesis of Image and Speech Processing algorithms on silicon.

Aim is to make a comparative study of VLSI implementations of segmentation algorithms. A typical DIMA segmentation algorithm ((multi-)thresholding) has to be selected and a representative set of DDMA segmentation algorithms (eg. split-and&...

Components and networks for optically switched broadband communication

There is currently an increasing demand for higher capacity and flexibility in telecommunication networks. One of the key technologies of the future will be optical switching (in space, time and wavelength). This switching can be used inside a switch...

Television: Integration, management and processing of images for high-end applications

The 'TeleVision' project (IWT project IT GBO 202) targets generic research on using images in high-end applications (e.g. multi-media and telematics applications). The project is a close collaboration between the major Flemish univer...
