In recognition of Professor Kenichi Kanatani's contributions
29 Oct 2013 Guanajuato (Mexico)



On the occasion of the retirement of Professor Kenichi Kanatani from Okayama University, the workshop on Geometric Computation for Computer Vision was held in conjunction with the 6th Pacific-Rim Symposium on Image and Video Technology (PSIVT 2013) in Guanajuato, Mexico, on October 29th, 2013.

To honor his contributions to the scientific community, this event focused on inferring the parameters of geometric structures within images or scenes which is one of the key aspects in computer vision. The topics particularly addressed by this workshop include general optimization of such problems and accurate parameter estimation in the presence of noisy data. The workshop intended to bring together researchers from these fields, encourage new ideas, discussions and theoretical or practical contributions.

Topics of interest include the following subjects from computer vision, but are not limited to:

  1. geometric modeling of the imaging process and 3D reconstruction
    • the geometry of 3D objects or scenes, and their projection into images
    • camera motion, moving objects, and dynamic scenes
    • geometric transformations
    • group-theoretical models
    • invariances in images
    • multi-camera geometry
    • mesh generation
  2. inference of parameters of geometric structures in images, videos, or 3D scenes
    • parameter estimation
    • estimation in the presence of noise
    • parameter optimization
    • bias-free minimization
    • dependences in visual cue integration
    • model selection and testing
  3. geometric or statistical methods for segmentation, analysis, and understanding
    • geometric or statistical methods for image, video and data segmentation
    • motion segmentation
    • stereo analysis
    • shape analysis and shape fitting
    • feature sampling
    • learning for object detection, recognition, or tracking
  4. geometric or statistical theories and computer vision
    • geometric algebra
    • computational geometry
    • surface geometries
    • digital geometry
    • invariant statistics
    • Markov random fields

Keynote at the main conference

The workshop wass also accompanied by a keynote of Professor Kenichi Kanatani at the main conference PSIVT 2013

Following the review process of the main conference PSIVT 2013, all papers were subject to a double-blind review process which was carried out by at least two experienced researchers in the field, also lncs logoincluding a brief rebuttal at the end of the decision process. Accepted papers will be included in the PSIVT 2013 proceedings of the workshops published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science collection.
