CFP: Subspace2007


First Call for Papers

Workshop on ACCV2007 Subspace2007
Tokyo, Japan, November 19, 2007

Workshop goals:
Subspace methods such as CLAFIC are not only important theory for
solving many pattern recognition problems in computer vision, but also
they have been widely used as a practical methodology for a wide
variety of real applications. The goal of this workshop is to share
the prominent potential of subspace methods with researchers working
on various problems in computer vision, and encourage interactions
leading to further developments of subspace methods. The fundamental
theories of subspace methods and their applications in computer vision
will be discussed at the workshop.
