International Workshop on Depth Image Analysis (WDIA 2012) - 11 November 2012
In Conjunction with 21th International Conference on Pattern Recognition 2012: November 11th, 2012, Tsukuba Science City, Japan
Three dimentional depth data has become a key information source for solving a large number of challenging applications. In the past, substantial advances have been demonstrated in processing, analysing, and interpreting depth data. Through the recent development in consumer depth cameras - in particular, the low-cost Kinect - a new era of depth data analysis is emerging. Affordable depth cameras are changing the landscape of computer vision and related research fields, with profound impact far beyond the consumer electronics.
The purpose of this workshop is to address the challenges in advanced depth acquisition techniques, processing and analyzing depth data, and solving novel and challenging real-world tasks. The workshop will bring together researchers from multiple fields to discuss major research problems and opportunities arising from the emergence of the depth camera revolution.
The scope of this workshop includes, but is not limited to, the following areas:
- Depth acquisition techniques
- Processing of depth data
- Analysis of depth data
- Fusion of depth data with other modalities
- 3D object recognition
- 3D shape modeling and retrieval
- 3D biometrics
- Human action recognition in depth data
- 3DTV, e.g. Depth-Based Image Rendering
- Augmented reality / mixed reality
- Biomedical applications of depth data
- Other applications of depth data analysis
- Depth datasets
- Depth data visualization
The intended participants of the workshop are pattern recognition and computer vision researchers who work in the field of depth data processing and analysis. Researchers with 3D vision applications will also find the workshop of interest, and are welcome to explore the potential of applying depth sensing techniques to solve challenging application problems.
Workshop Publication: All accepted papers will be made available online at the time of workshop. In addition, post-workshop proceedings with revised versions of the papers will be published as an LNCS book by Springer.
