Keynote speakers

  • Prof. Dr. Daniel Cremers
    Convex Optimization Methods for Computer Vision
    In his presentation he will introduce convex optimization methods which allow to reconstruct geometry, color and motion of the observed world from multiple images. The proposed provably convergent algorithms are easily parallelized on GPUs leading to optimal or near-optimal estimates of geometry, color and motion.

  • Prof. Dr. Horst Bischof
    Exploiting redundancy for reliable aerial computer vision
    This talk will highlight some recent results in deriving information (3D reconstruction, semantic segmentation, classification of objects) from a set of highly redundant images (acquired by air-planes or micro-aerial vehicles). The primary focus will be on the exploitation of the highly redundant data that is now available. We will demonstrate that redundancy is the key for fully automatic data processing, enabling a variety of large scale applications.
