2.  Short Description of the Workshop:

a) Goals/motivation: computer vision, image analysis and object identification involves different disciplines like mathematics, computer science, physics, biology, medicine and engineering. This workshop is designed to exercise such multidisciplinary nature of image and video analysis in the context of extracting geometrical properties and performing satisfactory classification of the observed objects coming from variety of sources as, for instance, biomedical image analysis, biometrics, scanned paper documents (geodetic maps, paginated music notation, rigid body motion) as well as another 1D, 2D and 3D (space/time) data. For such variety of data different techniques for image segmentation (e.g. with interpolation or approximation), feature recognition, classification and geometrical analysis, numerical computation are of fundamental importance in wide range of applications. Such fundamental areas in computer science dealing with different aspects of observations and measurements involve theoretical and practical aspects of objects identification and verification. For instance, biometrics and human biometric characteristics form the basis of research in biological measuring techniques for the purpose of people identification and recognition. Different types of paper-to-computer data transfer technologies are still research and development challenges. This workshop is a continuation of the previous PSIVT’13 workshop in Mexico chaired by R. Kozera, L. Noakes and A. Orłowski (also currently proposed co-chairs) and the follow-up of the Workshop on Geometric Properties from Incomplete Data held in Schloss Dagstuhl, Germany 2014 (chaired by R. Klette, R. Kozera, L. Noakes and J. Weickert).

b) Topics of importance: high accuracy measurements of geometrical properties like trajectory and shape recovery, human gait and motion restoration, image processing and biometrics and other missing information are vital to the analysis of the hidden structure not fully transparent from various noisy or noiseless and often incomplete or ambiguous data. The asymptotic behaviour of the proposed algorithms/schemes (e.g. interpolation, approximation or modelling via dynamical and PDEs systems) are also important aspects, which will be examined in this symposium. Symbolic aspects of computation involved will be considered at different levels of generality of syntactic and semantic data structuring integrated within the frames of granular computing paradigm. Not limited to the mentioned above topics, other papers on numeric,  applied mathematics and information systems in the context of PSIVT conference are welcomed.

c) Addressed participants: the interdisciplinary scope of the workshop will link people from different backgrounds to exchange their current research interests and hopefully facilitates any future collaboration. As pointed out in Goals and Motivation, the scientists from across different fields will find the common avenues to new interdisciplinary research projects. Such task is not only expected to eventuate within the group of the Conference and Workshop participants but also may be achieved by publishing the accepted papers in the LNCS workshop volume and thus reaching much wider audience.

d) Workshop format: it is intended to contain at least 2-3 sessions run during two days workshop held between November 23rd-27th of 2015. The speakers will deliver the talks and possible software presentation in 20-30 minutes time intervals. One/two invited speaker(s) will open/close the this symposium. If the number of papers is large then some papers may be re-allocated to the poster session (if agreed with PSIVT organizers).
