CFP: Extended Deadline: 3rd Int. Workshop on Dynamical Vision

Extended deadline: 15 June 
Clarification on paper format: 12 pages LNCS-format 
             ICCV'07 Workshop on Dynamical Vision 
             Oct 20, 2007, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


The classical multiple-view geometry studies the case with a 
moving camera viewing a static scene. Many real-world applications 
however require the modeling and reconstruction of a scene that 
has much more complex dynamics. That is, the scene may consist of 
multiple moving objects (e.g., a traffic scene) or articulate 
motions (e.g., a walking human) or even non-rigid dynamics (e.g., 
smoke, fire, waterfall). To study the problems of reconstructing 
different dynamical scenes, many new algebraic, geometric, 
statistical, and computational tools have recently emerged in 
computer vision, computer graphics, image processing, and 
vision-based control.

The goal of this workshop is to converge different aspects of 
the research on dynamical vision and identify common mathematical 
problems, models, and methods for future research in this emerging 
new topic. The workshop welcomes papers that fall into the 
following categories:

  a. Segmentation, Estimation, Tracking of Multiple Rigid-Body Motions. 
     - Based on Optical Flows or Image Gradients 
     - Based on Feature Correspondences 
     - Integrated Approaches and Hybrid Motion Models

  b. Segmentation, Estimation, Tracking of Articulate and/or Non-Rigid 
     - Human Motions 
     - Non-Rigid Motions

  c. Identification and Recognition of Dynamical Scenes from Videos. 
     - Dynamical Textures 
     - Video Segmentation

  d. Mathematical Tools for Modeling, Analysis, and Synthesis of 
Dynamical Scenes. 
     - Subspace Methods and High-Order Tensors 
     - Dynamical Systems 
     - Stochastic Models (e.g. Hidden Markov Models)

  e. Applications of Dynamical Vision (e.g., Surveillance, Graphics, and 
Robotics, etc.) 
     - Visual Servoing and Vision-Based Control & Navigation 
     - Localization and Mapping
