It is indeed a great pleasure to welcome you to the proceedings of the Inter- tional Symposium “Computational Modeling of Objects Represented in Images. Fundamentals,MethodsandApplications”(CompIMAGE2010)heldinBu?alo, NY, May 5-7, 2010. This was the second issue of CompIMAGE symposia, the ?rst one being held in Coimbra, Portugal. The purpose of CompIMAGE 2010 was to provide a common forum for - searchers, scientists, engineers, and practitioners around the world to present their latest research ?ndings, ideas, developments, and applications in the area of computational modeling of objects represented in images. In particular, the symposium aimed to attract scientists who use various approaches – such as ?nite element method, optimization methods, modal analysis, stochastic me- ods, principal components analysis, independent components analysis, distri- tion models, geometrical modeling, digital geometry, grammars,fuzzy logic, and others – to solve problems that appear in a wide range of areas as diverse as medicine, robotics, defense, security, astronomy,materialscience, and manuf- turing. CompIMAGE 2010 was highly international.
