CFP: 3DPVT (Data Processing, Visualization and Transmission) - Deadline Extension

*3DPVT* 2008 (_www.3dpvt.org_ )

Fourth International Symposium on *3D Data Processing, Visualization
and Transmission*

June 18-20, 2008, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta

Every two years 3DPVT offers researchers, developers, and students
the opportunity to present and discuss new research results,
technologies, and applications related to the capture,
representation, compact storage, transmission, processing, editing,
optimization and visualization of 3D geometric and photometric models
and their use in architecture, geosciences, medicine, manufacturing,
security, entertainment, and other fields.

We invite research contributions in three broad areas:
- Acquisition & Recognition (scanning, registration, 3D
reconstruction, recognition?)
- Processing & Transmission (similarity, segmentation, resampling,
compression, animation?)
- Interaction & Visualization (IBR, LOD, visibility, haptics, AR/VR,

and also application papers (architecture, biomedical, forensic, GIS,
3D-TV, entertainment, tourism, real estate, training?)

*Submission: *Double submission is only accepted for papers also
submitted to CVPR 2008, provided that the authors withdraw one of the
submissions if both are accepted.

- Manuscripts due: February 29, 2008
