Mathematical Morphology can be defined as a discipline for the
analysis of spatial structures. It is called morphology because the
analysis concentrates on the shape, form, and neighbourhood relations
of these structures. It is mathematical because it relies on set
theory (with emphasis on lattice theory), geometry, and topology.
Mathematical Morphology offers to practitioners a wide range of
effective methods and efficient algorithms for analysing digital
images and other forms of spatial data.
The International Symposium on Mathematical Morphology (ISMM) has
established itself as the main scientific event in the field. This
edition of ISMM will be the eleventh in the series initiated in 1993 in
Barcelona, and has never been this far North before. The goal of
the conference is to bring together researchers, students, and
practitioners of Mathematical Morphology, to present and discuss new
advances in the field, be they purely theoretical developments or novel
