Mini-symposium SIAM IS12: Current Developments and Challenges in Imaging Through Turbulence

The video sequence captured in a long-range system, such as surveillance, is often corrupted by the atmospheric turbulence degradation. Each frame suffers from geometric distortion and focal blur. To process such data arises a large amount of challenges in image processing and computer vision, such as to real-time enhancement, object detection and recognition. This mini-symposium is intended to present the state-of-the-art methods in reconstructing a video or a latent image with higher resolution, which include non-rigid registration, image fusion and blind deconvolution. The richness of its applications would draw attention to many researchers working on imaging science.
