More About This Textbook


This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Energy Minimization Methods in Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, EMMCVPR 2009, held in Bonn, Germany in August 2009.

The 18 revised full papers, 18 poster papers and 3 keynote lectures presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 75 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on discrete optimization and Markov random fields, partial differential equations, segmentation and tracking, shape optimization and registration, inpainting and image denoising, color and texture and statistics and learning.
