Abstract : The workshop brought together theoretical statisticians, experts in imaging applications and researchers involved in data fusion. The participants came from universities, industry and government. The topics discussed included morphological analysis of random closed sets and their optimal filtering, statistical problems for random sets, conditional entropy for random sets, tracking problems and data fusion methodologies, belief measures, limit theorems of random sets, random sets in decision making, static and dynamic aspects of Bayesian theory, and optimal granulomeric filtering in the signal-union clutter. There were many discussions, as well as interactions among people that have not met before. Proceeding of the workshop is under preparation.
