PHD POSITION AVAILABLE at INRIA (3D shape reconstruction of non-opaque objects)


"3D shape and volumetric radiance estimation of non-opaque objects from 
multiview images."

                                   APPLICATION DEADLINE: 14th of May, 2008.


Multi-view stereovision consists in recovering the three-dimensional 
shape of an object or a scene from several images of it. Nowadays, 
multi-view stereovision algorithms allow more or less to recover opaque 
objects. Despite the recent advances in opaque surface modeling, the 
modeling of translucent, semi-transparent or transparent objects has not 
yet received a very widespread attention. Also, successful methods 
aiming for opaque surface recovery definitively fail to deal with 
translucent/transparent surfaces. Only recently, some prospective 
techniques for modeling transparent surfaces have emerged.
