This workshop is organized by Jan Korbel, Medical University of Vienna & CSH Vienna, and Dalibor Štys, ICS Nové Hrady.
Owing to its excellent spatial and temporal resolution, video analysis belongs among the main methods for investigation of complex systems. Optical image sequences simultaneously provide, in principle, both time-resolved information and spatial distribution of electromagnetic spectra. This information is technically limited which may impact proper understanding of the evolution of the structure of a complex system. The technical limits are a frequency of image capture, spatial resolution (i.e., size of the theoretical pixel and possibility to obtain 3D information) and, subsequently, the possibility to reconstruct the spectrum of the object. In the symposium will be presented:
The model of a chemical self-organized system, the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction, which indicates that it is a discrete system with noise. In this system, the timestep as well as the size of the element (a 2D structure) is defined. We will present an influence of change of the timestep and object size on the objective definition of states in which the system evolves in time.
Experimental finding on the influence of binning on the analysis of financial market definitions.
The progress in 3D microscopy of living cells and tissues using multifractality assumption and the progress in spectral reconstruction of observed cell interior (technical limits and open questions).
The progress in the research of fish school behaviour down to the role of individuals, quantification of their preferences and feelings.
The goal of the minisymposium will be to substantiate a research direction which will has a practical impact on image analysis, medicine, ethology, security research, etc. but still lacks a comprehensive fundamental research foundation.
