Image and Signal Processing for High Performance Computing environments (ISP4HPC)


The volume of information gathered nowadays in the fields of image and signal processing exceeds human thinking. In broad terms, to extract the information needed to help decision making, high performance computing system are needed. Applications like Earth observation via remote sensing (e.g. using hyperspectral images with hundreds of spectral channels) are particularly demanding from a computational standpoint. Different algorithms and techniques are used in this and related fields for image and signal processing over environments comprising from single machines using accelerators to large ICT infrastructures like grids, clouds, clusters and supercomputers. The goal of this special session is to bring together researchers in the fields of image, signal processing and high performance computing systems, hence establishing a forum for discussing challenges, new ideas, results, applications, and future directions.
