in C++. OOP provides high expressiveness whereas GP leads
to more efficient programs by avoiding dynamic typing. This
paper presents SCOOP, a new paradigm which enables both
classical OO design and high performance in C++ by mixing
OOP and GP. We show how classical and advanced OO features
such as virtual methods, multiple inheritance, argument
covariance, virtual types and multimethods can be
implemented in a fully statically typed model, hence
without run-time overhead.}

with some examples that translating mathematical formulas

Olena. Moreover, experimental results show that no extra
costs at run-time are induced.}

the specific domain of image processing. Although many
image processing libraries are available, they generally
lack genericity and flexibility. Many image processing
algorithms can be expressed as compositions of elementary
algorithmic operations referred to as blocks. Implementing
these compositions is achieved using generic programming.
Our solution is compared to previous ones and we
demonstrate it on a class image processing algorithms.}

abstract = {This paper presents Olena, a toolkit for programming and
designing image processing chains in which each processing
is a component. But since there exist many image types
(different structures such as 2D images, 3D images or
graphs, as well as different value types) the platform has
been designed with genericity and reusability in mind: each
component is written as a generic C++ procedure, \`a la
STL. Other libraries, such as Khoros [Kon94] have a
different approach where a processing component contains an
implementation for each type supported by the library. This
makes code maintenance hard and prevents easy addition of
new image types. Still, Olena is not only a generic
component library [Jaz95], it shall contain additional
tools such as a visual programming environment (VPE). Those
tools may be programmed in a classical object-oriented
fashion (using operation and inclusion polymorphism) which
may seems antagonist with the generic programming paradigm
used in the library. Section 2 outlines the architecture of
Olena and elaborates more on the design problems resulting
from the use of generic components. Section 3 presents the
solution chosen to address these problems.}

pattern recognition are not reusable; to run an algorithm
on particular data, one usually has either to rewrite the
algorithm or to manually ``copy, paste, and modify''. This
is due to the lack of genericity of the programming
paradigm used to implement the libraries. In this paper, we
present a recent paradigm that allows algorithms to be
written once and for all and to accept input of various
types. Moreover, this total reusability can be obtained
with a very comprehensive writing and without significant
cost at execution, compared to a dedicated algorithm. This
new paradigm is called ``generic programming'' and is fully
supported by the C++ language. We show how this paradigm
can be applied to image processing and pattern recognition
routines. The perspective of our work is the creation of a
generic library.}

the limits of these implementations in terms of

algorithm can have a general implementation; said
differently, an implementation can be generic, i.e.,
independent of both the input aggregate type and the type
of the data contained in the input aggregate. A total
reusability of algorithms can therefore be obtained;
moreover, a generic implementation is more natural and does
not introduce a meaningful additional cost in execution
time as compared to an implementation dedicated to a
particular input type.}

abstract = {Classical (unbounded) genericity in \Cxx{}03 defines the
interactions between generic data types and algorithms in
terms of concepts. Concepts define the requirements over a
type (or a parameter) by expressing constraints on its
methods and dependent types (typedefs). The upcoming
\Cxx{}0x standard will promote concepts from abstract
entities (not directly enforced by the tools) to language
constructs, enabling compilers and tools to perform
additional checks on generic constructs as well as enabling
new features (e.g., concept-based overloading). Most modern
languages support this notion of signature on generic
types. However, generic types built on other types and
relying on concepts to both ensure type conformance and
drive code specialization, restrain the interface and the
implementation of the newly created type: specific methods
and associated types not mentioned in the concept will not
be part of the new type. The paradigm of concept-based
genericity lacks the required semantics to transform types
while retaining or adapting their intrinsic capabilities.
We present a new form of semantically-enriched genericity
allowing static generic type transformations through a
simple form of type introspection based on type metadata
called properties. This approach relies on a new Static
\Cxx Object-Oriented Programming (SCOOP) paradigm, and is
adapted to the creation of generic and efficient libraries,
especially in the field of scientific computing. Our
proposal uses a metaprogramming facility built into a \Cxx
library called Static, and doesn't require any language
extension nor additional processing (preprocessor,
transformation tool).}

abstract = {Electronic documents are being more and more usable thanks
to better and more affordable network, storage and
computational facilities. But in order to benefit from
computer-aided document management, paper documents must be
digitized and analyzed. This task may be challenging at
several levels. Data may be of multiple types thus
requiring different adapted processing chains. The tools to
be developed should also take into account the needs and
knowledge of users, ranging from a simple graphical
application to a complete programming framework. Finally,
the data sets to process may be large. In this paper, we
expose a set of features that a Document Image Analysis
framework should provide to handle the previous issues. In
particular, a good strategy to address both flexibility and
efficiency issues is the Generic Programming (GP) paradigm.
These ideas are implemented as an open source module,
SCRIBO, built on top of Olena, a generic and efficient
image processing platform. Our solution features services
such as preprocessing filters, text detection, page
segmentation and document reconstruction (as XML, PDF or
HTML documents). This framework, composed of reusable
software components, can be used to create full-fledged
graphical applications, small utilities, or processing
chains to be integrated into third-party projects.},
