ICCV 2011






Modeling shapes that evolve over time, analyzing and interpreting their motion has been a subject of increasing interest of many research communities including the computer vision, the computer graphics and the medical imaging community. Recent evolutions in acquisition technologies including 3D depth cameras (Time-of-Light and Kinect), multi-camera systems, marker based motion capture systems, ultrasound and CT scans have made those communities consider capturing the real scene and their dynamics, create 4D spatio-temporal models, analyze and interpret them. A number of applications including motion capture, dynamic shape modeling and animation, temporally consistent 3D reconstruction, motion analyzes and interpretation have emerged. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a venue for researchers, from various communities, working in the field of modeling dynamic scenes from various modalities to present their work, exchange ideas and identify challenging issues in this domain.


This workshop is sponsored by PASCAL2 NETWORK , 4DViews , Technicolor .
