11th International Fall Workshop Vision, Modelling and Visualization 2006
Vision, Modeling, and Visualization are rapidly converging disciplines. For a long time the three fields were separate, each with their own methodology, terminology, and formalism. However, for many applications they have to work hand in hand based on computer models and data structures that can be used across all disciplines. Prominent examples are medical sciences, where novel and improved image sensors require new integrated vision, modeling, and visualization techniques. Also, due to the proliferation of digital photography and high-speed graphics accelerators, image-based modeling and the corresponding vision and visualization techniques have become a research topic of highest relevance. Topics include: - 3-D imaging - Object localization and recognition - Volume data processing and visualization - Multi-sensor fusion and 3-D registration - Medical image processing - Medical visualization - Structure from motion and stereo - Geometry-based and image-based rendering - Geometric modeling - Geometric processing - Scene modeling and integration - Multi-view image processing and coding - Realistic rendering - Animation - Virtual reality - Applications (medicine, robotics, fluid mechanics, manufacturing, automated inspection, virtual reality, communication, etc.)

ISMAR 2006 Workshop Industrial Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality has matured from a pure research field into actual industrial applications. There are still many research questions to solve, and solutions are discussed every year at the ISMAR conference series.
