Computer Supported Cooperative Work.
This is how the journal describes itself: Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW): The Journal of Collaborative Computing is devoted to innovative research in computer supported cooperative work (CSCW). It provides an interdisciplinary forum for the debate and exchange of ideas concerning theoretical, practical, technical, and social issues in CSCW. The journal arose as a response to the growing interest in the design, implementation and use of technical systems (including computing, information, and communicat...

Combinatorial Engineering of Decomposable Systems presents a morphological appoach to the combinatorial design/synthesis of decomposable systems. Applications involve the following: design (e.g., information systems, user's interfaces, educational courses); planning (e.g., problem solving strategies, product life cycle, investment); metaheuristics for combinatorial optimization; information retrieval; etc.

Chapter 5 covers the necessary background that encompasses the monograph -- in brief we explore Markov random fields in general for vision applications. We also sketch details and concepts of multiresolution. In Chapter 3.2.1, the MRF formulation of the image interpretation problem is presented. This section also contains a discussion the selection of clique function based on the work of Modestino and Zhang [58]. In Section 1.2 we review the selection of clique functions based on the work of Kim and Yang [59]. In Chapter 1.2.3 we present some our results based on image interpretation using the Bayesian network. In Chapter 7 we present some of our new results on joint image segmentation and interpretation. Finally some thought on the future direction for image interpretation are presented in Chapter 5.11
