BILKENT will serve as the coordinating partner. The Department of Electrical
and Electronics at Bilkent University managed the large size FP6 Network of
Excellence (NoE) 3DTV (www.3dtv-research.org). Prof. Cetin was on the management
committee of both the 3DTV and the FP6 NoE Multimedia Understanding through
Semantics and Computational Learning (MUSCLE). BILKENT will keep track of all
the exchanges and visits between the partners and prepare management review
reports. BILKENT will also maintain an Internet web page with public and private
access containing reports, joint publications, and microscopic image data (open
only to partners). BILKENT will continue hosting the web page after the project
The project consortium will organize workshops, special sessions and tutorials
at conferences, and special issues in scientific journals. The workshops and
special sessions will be open not only to the consortium members but also to the
whole European research community. The first microscopic image processing
workshop will be organized in Turkey by BILKENT at the end of year one in
conjunction with the IEEE Signal Processing and Applications Conference (IEEE
SIU) and the second one will be organized in Greece by the ITI-CERTH at the end
of year two of MIRACLE programme. The calls of both workshops will be e-mailed
to all EURASIP (European Signal Processing Society) members. Prof. Gurcan (OSU)
will deliver a tutorial to all the participants of the conference. Prof. Gurcan
and Dr. Rajpoot (WARWICK) organized tutorials and a special focus session at
IEEE ISBI conference in 2008 in Paris, France and they will continue organizing
similar sessions throughout MIRACLE programme. Prof. Cetin is on the editorial
boards of three scientific journals: Signal Processing (Elsevier) and Journal of
Advances of Signal Processing both published by the European Signal Processing
Society (EURASIP), and the Journal of Machine Learning and Applications
published by Springer-Verlag. A special issue will be organized in either one of
the above journals towards the end of the MIRACLE programme.
