CALL FOR PAPERS IS&T / SPIE 3D Image Processing and Applications in conjunction with SPIE Symposium Electronic Imaging 2010 San Jose 17 -21 january 2010 Scientific and technological advances in the fields of image processing, telecommunications, and computer graphics during the last decade, have contributed to the emergence of new multimedia, especially 3D digital data. Nowadays, the processing, transmission and visualization of three-dimensional objects are a part of possible and realistic functionalities over the Internet. Confirmed 3D processing techniques exist and a large scientific community hardly works on open problems and new challenges, including 3D data processing, transmission, fast access to huge 3D databases, or content security management. The emergence of 3D media is also directly related to the emergence of the 3D acquisition technologies. Indeed, recent advances in 3D scanner acquisition and 3D graphics rendering technologies boost the creation of 3D model archives for several application domains. These include archaeology, cultural heritage, Computer Assisted Design (CAD), medicine, 3D face recognition, videogames or bioinformatics. Three-dimensional objects are quite more complex to handle than other multimedia data, such as audio signals, images or videos. Indeed, only a unique and simple 2D grid representation is associated to a 2D image. All the 2D acquisition devices generate this same representation (digital cameras, scanners or 2D medical systems). Unfortunately (for the users) and fortunately (for the scientists), there exist different three-dimensional representations for a 3D object. An object can be represented on a 3D grid like a digital image, or in a 3D Euclidian space. In the later case, the object can be expressed by a single equation (like algebraic implicit surfaces), by a set of facets representing its boundary surface or by a set of mathematical surfaces. One can easily imagine the numerous open problems related to these different representations and their processing, a new challenge for the image processing community. This conference will be focused on the following topics related to 3D data: * video, 3D and 4D image capture * representations: models, tools for transformation, simplification * analysis: feature extraction, segmentation, classification, pattern recognition... * 3D shape indexing and retrieval * compression and communication * security: encryption, watermarking * scene analysis: from 2D views to 3D reconstruction and interpretation * 3D scene or model reconstruction from video or still camera * quality assessment * hardware/software implementations The applications domains are: * multimedia services * computer aided design (CAD) * cultural heritage * gaming * tourism (e.g., virtual museum tours) * medical imaging and analysis * machine vision * geographical information systems (GIS).
