Public Release: 

Multimedia, Vision and Visualization Group to chair workshop at IEEE Computer Vision Conference

Stevens Institute of Technology

HOBOKEN, N.J. -- Stevens Institute of Technology Professors John Oliensis, Elli Angelopoulou, George Kamberov, and Quynh Dinh of the Multimedia, Vision, and Visualization Group (MVV) in the Department of Computer Science are chairing an IEEE International workshop, titled "Beyond Multiview Geometry: Robust Estimation and Organization of Shapes from Multiple Cues." The workshop is a full-day event, and will occur Friday, June 22, 2007, in conjunction with the IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR 2007) to be held in Minneapolis, Minn. (http://cvpr.cv.ri.cmu.edu/program.html)

The focus of the workshop is on the next generation of 3D estimation techniques, moving beyond traditional geometry-based methods such as stereo and structure from motion with their inherent limitations. The talks will introduce new techniques, methodologies, and sensors targeted for a variety of reconstruction applications in several fields. For more details, visit the workshop website: http://www.cs.stevens.edu/~bmgcvpr/program.html Professor Quynh Dinh will also be presenting a paper at the general CVPR conference, titled "A Variational Approach to the Evolution of Radial Basis Functions for Image Segmentation," co-authored by Greg Slabaugh and Gozde Unal of Siemens Corporate Research. This work focuses on solving image segmentation problems using differential equations to evolve a segmenting contour composed of radial basis functions.
