        Workshop:                        September 11th, 2007


SCOPE

3D imaging sensors have been investigated for several decades. In recent
years, improvements on classical approaches like stereo vision on the one
hand, and novel techniques like ZCam or Photonic Mixing Device (PMD) on the
other hand have emerged, leading to 3D vision systems with radically improved
characteristics. Presently, these techniques make full-range 3D data available
at interactive frame rates, and thus open the path towards a much broader
application of 3D vision systems.

The workshop focuses on sensor systems, data processing approaches and systems
incorporating interactive, full-range 3D sensors in specific application
areas.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

 * Development of full-range 3D sensors or sensor systems, including
   - active and passive 3D imaging systems
   - 3D sensors operating at optical, near-infrared, terahertz and
   - microwave wavelengths
   - sensor simulation
 * Multi sensor fusion incorporating full-range 3D sensors
 * Data processing for dynamic full-range 3D-data, including
   - sensor based image synthesis
   - 3D object recognition
   - 3D optical flow
   - calibration techniques
 * Applications using interactive, full-range 3D sensors, e.g. in
   areas like
   - autonomous robotics
   - medicine
   - industrial automation

Results of practical significance with an adequate inclusion of interactive 3D
vision sensors will be considered. The content of submitted papers has to be
novel.
