Invited Talk by Dr. Tolga Birdal: A Geometric Take on Probabilistic Synchronization
Tolga Birdal will present an unconventional sequel of works bringing fresh perspectives to the 2D/3D multiview alignment, correspondence estimation and optimization problems. In this peculiar talk, Tolga interrogates the mono-optimality in vision problems and argues for an interpolatant between optimization and statistical inference that characterize the space and geometry of solutions for a specific downstream task. Within the scope, the problem of particular interest is synchronization, operation to unison. Tolga will start off with the nuts and bolts on probability and inference in geometric domains such as the Riemannian tempered stochastic gradient MCMC methods. He will then apply different variations of this algorithm to various group valued non-Euclidean parameters (rotations, poses and permutations) belonging to the highly non-convex problem of synchronization within an undirected graph. Subsequently, he will leap into non-parametric methods and show how in the most general case, cyclic-consistency of distributions on maps can be understood as a sum of optimal transportations in the Lie group of the parameters. In the remainder of the talk, he will discuss how some of these algorithms can be used in contemporary deep neural networks as well as alternative twists to synchronize: multi-scan registration without registration. Findings relevant to this project are published in NeurIPS? 2018, CVPR 2019 & CVPR 2020 as well as the CVPR 2020 tutorial on synchronization: http://synchinvision.github.io/. The methods are particularly suited to improve SFM (structure from motion) and SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) pipelines that are essential for computer vision and robotics.

PhD Defense by Wadim Kehl
The task of detecting objects in images is essential for autonomous systems to categorize, comprehend and eventually navigate or manipulate its environment. Since many applications demand not only detection of objects but also the estimation of their exact poses, 3D CAD models can prove helpful since they provide means for feature extraction and hypothesis refinement. This work, therefore, explores two paths: Firstly, we will look into methods to create richlytextured and geometrically accurate models of real-life objects. Using these reconstructions as a basis, we will investigate on how to improve in the domain of 3D object detection and pose estimation, focusing especially on scalability, i.e. the problem of dealing with multiple objects simultaneously.

PhD Defense by Aslı Okur Kuru
Radioguided surgery is a well-established clinical discipline. However, the devices or systems are not necessarily optimized for the particular needs of the target clinical application. This thesis addresses several challenges associated with the deployment of new technologies or concepts for radioguided surgery in different clinical scenarios on the concrete example of Freehand SPECT, a novel 3D nuclear imaging and navigation system. This includes the analysis of the clinical workflow, definition of the supporting functions of the technology and its modification towards integrated applications.
