1st to June 3rd – various times – free
The 3D Vision lab
at Université de Montréal is pleased to host the Toronto-Montreal Vision Workshop
2005. The sessions of the workshop are open to everyone interested in 3D vision.
25 years ago, computer vision
was seen as the A.I. branch where problems could be solved easily. Nowadays,
it has become a proeminent discipline comprising a large number of fields and
applications of which complex problematics are not yet resolved. The related
fields include telesurveillance, biometrics, industrial inspection, virtual
reality, telepresence, space exploration, robotics and many more.
The program held at the
Université de Montréal is mostly centered around the fundamentals
of tridimensional computer vision, favouring a theoratical approach and practical
creations allowing an efficient transfer towards the industry. The artistic
and cultural applications that can be made out of the 3D works and research
is also a major part of the program.
The Toronto-Montreal workshops
started in the mid-1980’s and was organized by Steve Zucker at McGill and John
K. Tsotsos at University of Toronto.
universities are: McGill University, Université de Montréal, University of Ottawa,
University of Toronto, University of Waterloo and York University.
Much in the same
spirit as the previous workshops (2004 and 2003 ), we are expecting students
from these universities to gather and share their recent results with each other,
get to know other graduate students working in vision, meet the local Vision
faculty, and perhaps enjoy a tour of the city with friendly “native”
