CFP: Workshop on Non-Rigid Shape Analysis and Deformable Image Alignment NORDIA '08


Workshop on Non-Rigid Shape Analysis and Deformable Image Alignment

                  27-28 June 2008, Anchorage, Alaska
                    (in conjunction with CVPR'08)

Printable flyer:

Nonrigid and deformable shapes are ubiquitous in the world surrounding
us, on all  levels from micro to macro. The need  to study such shapes
and model  their behavior arises  in a wide spectrum  of applications,
ranging  from   medical  imaging  and  augmented   reality  to  design
engineering.  In recent years, problems of nonrigid shape analysis and
deformable  image  alignment  have  attracted a  growing  interest  in
computer vision and pattern  recognition communities, which has led to
rapid development  of the  field, where state-of-the-art  results from
very  different   sciences  -  theoretical   and  numerical  geometry,
optimization,  linear  algebra,  graph  theory, machine  learning  and
computer graphics, to mention a few - are applied to find solutions.

The purpose of  the workshop is to bring  together leading researchers
dealing  with  different  aspects   of  nonrigid  shape  analysis  and
deformable image  alignment in order to  promote new interdisciplinary
collaborations and  expose each  side to the  most recent  results and
problems in each  field. The unique value of  the workshop is bringing
together  people  from  communities  traditionally  considered  to  be
working in different areas and rarely meeting in the same conferences.

TOPICS (include but not restricted to):
* Deformable models
* Shape similarity and recognition
* Partial shape similarity
* Self-similarity and symmetry of nonrigid shapes
* Geometric and topological noise modeling
* 2D/2D, 2D/3D, and 3D/3D alignment and nonrigid correspondence problems
* Inverse problems involving nonrigid shapes
* Synthesis of nonrigid shapes
* Learning-based methods
* Image likelihood functions
* Efficient optimization algorithms
* Merging of detection and alignment
* Sensor fusion
* Applications

Paper submission: March 28, 2008 (extended)
Notification of acceptance: April 20, 2008
Camera ready papers: May 1, 2008
Workshop: June 27-28, 2008

Jiri Matas, Czech Technical University
Guillermo Sapiro, University of Minnesota

The most outstanding paper will be awarded the Best Paper Prize.

NORDIA will be a two-day workshop and will be held in conjunction with
CVPR 2008 at the Egan  Convention Center in Anchorage, Alaska, on June
27-28, 2008. Registration to the workshop will be part of registration
to CVPR (a passport system used in previous CVPR conferences).

Papers must describe high-quality,  original research in areas related
to  nonrigid  shape  analysis   and  deformable  image  alignment.  We
especially  welcome interdisciplinary  papers bridging  between fields
such as computer vision, computer graphics, geometry and learning. All
submissions  will be  handled electronically.  Submission instructions
will be posted on the conference website in due course.

Submitted  papers   must  comply  with  the  CVPR   style  and  length
requirements (up  to 6 pages,  with the option  of purchasing up  to 2
extra pages for 0 per page) and not be substantially similar to any
paper  submitted elsewhere.  As in  previous CVPR  workshops, accepted
papers will appear with the CVPR 2008 proceedings and will be archived
in IEEE eXplore.
