Workshop 2006 on
Computation Intensive Methods for Computer Vision
12th May 2006 in Graz, Austria,
in conjunction with ECCV 2006
Paper submission deadline:
13th February, 2006
Vision data represent huge technical challenges to
computer interpretation because of:
- complex semantics; as an
example, despite considerable effort, no general satisfactory
method of automatic object detection in images exists;
very large size, a problem further compounded by the need in many
applications for "real-time" computation.
Addressing the first challenge adequately often requires complex
modelling which in turn requires computation intensive
implementation, which in turn conflicts with meeting the latter
This one-day workshop, will bring together researchers to address
computational issues that arise in the analysis of computer vision
data. It is organized through the Network of Excellence
. The objectives of the workshop are to:
- Present research on state of the art computation intensive methods
for management, retrieval and knowledge discovery for vision data;
- Discuss future directions for research;
- Encourage collaboration
between research groups in these areas.
General Topics of Interest
will be invited and contributed talks and a round-table discussion
on future directions. Paper submissions for contributed talks are
sought in the areas of the following topics as they relate to
vision data analysis:
- Monte Carlo methods, including Markov
chain Monte Carlo, sequential approaches and convergence issues;
- dimension reduction and re-parameterization for faster computing;
- the use of distributed (clusters, grids) computing;
- real-time image and video applications;
- optimization (annealing, variational,...) methods and PDEs for computer
- vision applications implemented by computation intensive
- indexing and retrieval in large image and video databases.
