IEEE Workshop on Visualization and Machine Vision

The Westin Hotel, Seattle, Washington June 24, 1994
(Note: The workshop is a day after CVPR at the same site.
So researchers can stay an extra day and attend the workshop).

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society:
Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence Technical Committee and
Computer Graphics Technical Committee

************************************************** ***************

Visualization is a rapidly growing discipline, and has become one
of the most important tools of modern computational science. The
goal of research in visualization is to extract meaningful
information from voluminous datasets through the use of imaging
and interactive graphics. This goal has been made feasible by
recent advancements in multi-media technology. Computer
Vision, on the other hand, is concerned with the automatic
interpretation of images. Thus, both disciplines are
concerned with computational problems associated with images.

The aim of this workshop is to explore the synergy between these
two research areas and identify new applications and promising
new directions for interdisciplinary research. Some examples of
such applications are: automated analysis of flow visualization
images, fusion of multiple images and visualization of medical

In many such applications, computer vision may be used to aid and
complement human analysis. For example, computer vision may be
applied for selective visualization, where the image display is
preceded by image analysis to isolate regions of interest in the
data. Such regions of interest could be edges in data, or areas
around singularities. Techniques such as edge detection and
segmentation could be extended to data that are not necessarily
visual, e.g. financial or geographic data.

Computer vision could benefit from techniques developed in
visualization, such as the fusion of multiple images for display,
visualization of reconstruction techniques, display of multi-
dimensional vector fields, etc.

We invite both theoretical and application oriented papers
exploring any aspect of the interaction between these two
disciplines. Suggested topics are listed below. This list is not
exhaustive and other relevant papers are welcome.
