This volume of original papers has been assembled to honor Azriel Rosenfeld, the dominant figure in the field of computer vision and image processing for over 30 years. Over this period he has made many fundamental and pioneering contributions to nearly every area in this field. Azriel Rosenfeld wrote the first textbook in the field (1969) and was founding editor of the first journal (1972).

The contributions in this book illustrate the changes that have occurred in dealing with crucial research problems and the methodologies employed to solve them. The 22 papers specifically written for this text are by a handful of researchers who have known and worked with Azriel over the years. These papers address five major themes: image segmentation, feature extraction, 3D shape estimation from 2D images, object recognition, and applications technologies.
