Dear Biomch-L readers,

The following announcement is cross-posted from the newsgroup
comp.ai.vision. This moderated newsgroup on computer vision and
associated topics is also distributed by E-mail for those without
Usenet. To subscribe, send E-mail to Phil Kahn
.

The IEEE workshop appears to be mainly aimed at robotics
applications, but the methodology that is being developed in this
field would be directly applicable to biomechanics. Anyone who
is interested in advanced techniques for motion analysis from
images should keep an eye on the rapid progress in computer
vision. In fact, gait analysis is part of the program of the
workshop.

WORKSHOP PROGRAM:

The workshop will focus on the image-based analysis of
nonrigid motion, including the motion of multibody, articulate,
deformable and fluid objects.

The following topics are suggested; however other topics are
also welcome.

Acquisition of articulate shape models
Analysis-by-synthesis techniques
Analysis of dynamic medical images
Computation of motion fields
Constrained multibody dynamics
Deformable models
Human motion analysis (facial motion, gesture, gait)
Model-based methods for shape and motion estimation
Nonrigid and articulated object recognition, tracking
and motion analysis
Part identification
Physics-based modeling techniques
Reasoning about object functions
Recursive estimation techniques
Scenes with multiple moving independent objects


SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

Three copies of the full paper, including figures and drawings (12
point type, double spaced, not exceeding 20 pages in length) should be
submitted to J. K. Aggarwal at the address above. Papers must be
received no later than March 15, 1994, to be considered. Notification
of acceptance will be sent to the authors by June 1, 1994, and full
camera-ready papers must be returned by July 15, 1994.


WORKSHOP ENVIRONMENT:

The workshop will be held in the Austin Marriott at the Capitol,
located in downtown Austin. Noted for its accommodations, service, and
amenities, the Marriott is one of the six hotels affiliated with the
First IEEE International Conference on Image Processing which will be held
November 13-16, 1994 at the Austin Convention Center. The hotel offers
an indoor/outdoor pool, health club, and nearby golf, tennis, and water
sports. The Austin Convention Center, the 6th Street entertainment
district, and the UT Austin campus are within walking distance of the
hotel.
