AMDO 2008 : International Conference on Articulated Motion and Deformable Objects
Conference Series : Articulated Motion and Deformable Objects
Call For Papers
The Spanish Association for Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis (AERFAI) and the Mathematics and Computer Science Department of UIB are organising the fifth international conference AMDO 2008 that will take place in Puerto de Andratx, Mallorca. This conference, IAPR endorsed, is the natural evolution of the AMDO's previous workshops. The goal of this conference is to promote interaction and collaboration among researchers working directly in the areas covered by the main tracks. New perceptual user interfaces and emerging technologies strengthen the relationship between areas involved with human-computer interaction. The new perspective of the AMDO 2008 conference will be to reinforce the relationship between the many areas that have as key point the study of the human body using computer technologies as the main tool.
It is a great opportunity to encourage links between research in the areas of computer vision, computer graphics, advanced multimedia applications and multimodal interfaces that share common problems and frequently use similar techniques or tools. In this particular edition the related topics are divided in several parallel tracks, including the topics above proposed.
AMDO 2008 will consist in three days of lecture sessions, both regular and invited presentations, a poster session and international tutorials. The conference fee includes a social program (conference dinner, coffee breaks, snacks and cultural activities). Students, IAPR, EG, and AERFAI members can register at a reduced fee.
The invited speakers will be: Prof. Pantic, M. - (Imperial College London, UK / Univ. of Twente, Netherlands), Prof. Boyer, E. (LJK / UJF / INRIA Rhone-Alpes, France) and Prof. Abascal, J. (Univ. of Pais Vasc, Spain).
TOPICS INCLUDE (but not restricted to):
Track 1: Computer Graphics (Human Modelling & Animation)
Track 2: Human Motion (Analysis, Tracking, 3D Reconstruction & Recognition)
Track 3: Multimodal User Interaction (VR & AR, Speech, Biometrics)
Track 4: Advanced Multimedia Systems (Standards, Indexed Video Contents)
PAPER SUBMISSION AND REVIEW PROCESS
