Visualization is the art of transforming normally invisible phenomena into visual measurable events by utilizing, for example, fluid or solid tracers, refractory techniques, or by changing wavelengths. Imaging involves recreation of the image of the physical entity from data sets generated by the various imaging techniques such as interferometry, CT, MRI, and ultrasound among others. The papers in this volume examine topics of interest as: object recognition and feature extraction; shape analysis, 3-D reconstruction and restoration; pattern recognition; digital imaging processing; neural networks; molecular and cellular motion and transport; tissue and organ characterization; tomography; surface potential and signal analysis (heart, brain, etc.)
