Proceedings of Subspace2007 is available

The online proceedings of the Subspace2007 is now available at:
including an interesting tutorial on the subspace method.

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

Scope of workshop is limited in Subspace methods

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.
