Marialena Demetriou wins best master's thesis

CIMET student Marialena Demetriou was awared the best master's thesis in the CIMET programme at Gjøvik in 2012. In her master thesis "Computer-Aided Reclamation of Lost Art", she used advanced color image processing methods to solve a significant problem within the field of cultural heritage convervation and art history.  In the thesis Marialena employs, adapts, and evaluates an innovative combination of example-based super-resolution and colour correction algorithms to recover high-quality digital images of fine art paintings that are no longer available; they have for instance been stolen or destroyed by fire. We congratulate Marialena with the award.
