CF participation: IEEE Workshop on Beyond Multiview Geometry

Dear Researcher,

We would like to invite you to attend the IEEE workshop on
Beyond Multiview Geometry (BMG) to be held in conjunction with
IEEE CVPR 2007, on Friday June 22 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

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
