CFP: Workshop on 3D Representation for Recognition (3dRR-07)


Workshop on 3D Representation for Recognition (3dRR-07)   

(in conjunction with ICCV 2007, Rio de Janeiro, Brasil)

Deadline for paper submission: June 15th, 2007  

Object and scene categorization has been a central topic of computer 
vision research in recent years. The problem is a highly challenging one. 
A single object or scene may show tremendous variability in appearance and 
structure under various photometric and geometric conditions. In addition, 
members of the same class may differ from each other due to various 
degrees of intra-class variability.

Recently, researchers have proposed new powerful models as well as 
sophisticated mathematical tools for handling object and scene class 
recognition. However, much work still needs to be done towards the goal 
of: i) finding a suitable representation that can efficiently capture the 
three-dimensional nature of objects and scenes; ii) taking  advantage of 
this representation to help the recognition task.

This workshop represents a great opportunity for bringing together experts 
from multiple areas of computer vision (3D reconstruction, recognition, 
etc.) and providing a common playground for a stimulating debate.  We are 
soliciting original contributions which can provide both theoretical and 
experimental insight on this fundamental problem. Specific questions we 
would like to address include, but are not  limited, to:

- What are suitable representations of the 3D geometry of object instances 
or classes which can be exploited for recognition?

Reconstruction and Recognition:
- Can recognition and reconstruction be run simultaneously to enhance each 
- How much does 3D information help? How detailed does the 3D
representation need to be in order to achieve satisfactory recognition?

Spatial constraints and contextual recognition:
- How can we use/explore different degrees of 3D spatial constraints (e.g. 
ground plane) for recognition?  
- Can we expand known 2D spatial models (e.g. constellation models) to 3D?
- How can 3D spatial constraints be used for joint recognition of scenes 
and the objects within?

Human vision:
- What can we learn from what we know about our own visual system? How do 
we represent a 3D object or environment in our brain? Can this inspire 
computational work?

- Leonardo da Vinci used to say that for a painting to look right its (3D) 
geometry had to be right. But Drer did not agree. Who is right?  
- Cubist art demonstrates that incorrect 3D geometry does not impair our 
capability of recognizing objects in paintings. Can cubism inspire us to 
find minimal geometric models for recognition?

Accepted papers will be published in the ICCV 2007 CD-ROM Proceedings. A 
prize will be awarded to the best paper of the workshop. The prize is 
sponsored by Microsoft Research Redmond. Double submissions to 3dRR-07 
workshop and the main ICCV07 conference are allowed (but not to any other 
conference, workshop or journal). In case of acceptance to both, the 
authors will have to decide where the paper should appear (that is, main 
conference or workshop).

Submitted papers must have a maximum length of 8 pages and must adhere to 
the same ICCV 2007 layout specifications as papers submitted to the main 
conference (except for the summary page). Please refer to ICCV 2007 
relevant webpage for instructions on the submission format.
