Giving seminars is also an important way to communicating our research, both outside CBA, this year mostly at other UU departments, and internally in our own seminar series were a seminar is given each Monday afternoon. The many conference involvements have of course led to many conference presentations, as special invited speakers (9), as oral presenters (9) and as poster presenters (13). There have also been 13 presentations at non-reviewed meetings.
Having world class scientists visiting us and visiting their groups for longer or shorter periods is an important part of international science. This year we had Punam Saha (University of Iowa) visiting for three months, which started a number of interesting co-operations. Two of our PhD students visited Centre for Mathematical Morphology in Paris and Okinawa Institute of Science and technology for two months each. There were also many interesting shorter visits and visitors.
Finally, we are engaged in many different international and national committees, especially our professors. This ranges from being Editors of scientific journals, being Fellows or members of scientific organisations to being part of different university committees, from reviewing scientific papers and grant applications to being part of dissertation defence committees. The most prestigious are probably that Nyström is Secretary of the International Association for Pattern Recognition and that Borgefors is Editor-in-Chief for Pattern Recognition Letters. In Figure 33, journals with CBA staff in the editorial board are shown.
