The main communication tool for the course is Moodle. This website is for your information during the first week of classes. It will not be updated regularly after that.

Welcome to CISC457. This course provides an introduction to computational approaches in image processing applications. This includes the study of areas such as techniques and algorithms for image enhancement and segmentation, image registration, and color image processing. There will also be an introduction to Medical Image Processing towards the end of the course.
