Workshop 1
Dynamic Shape Measurement and Analysis 2014

Organizer: Koichi Ogawara and Adrian Hilton

Dynamic 3D shape acquisition has been a subject of increasing interest to many research communities including computer vision, graphics, medical imaging, psychological and sports analysis. Recently acquisition technologies such as 3D depth cameras, multi-camera systems, motion capture systems have enabled acquisition of real dynamic scenes and their analysis. Various applications have been proposed, including dynamic shape modeling, performance capture, high-speed shape capturing and motion analysis. In addition, application for life science, such as medical and psychological purposes, has been intensively researched. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for researchers to present their work, exchange ideas and identify challenging open-problems.

Workshop 2
Geometry Analysis and Processing Using Functional Maps

Organizers: Alex Bronstein

This workshop will be dedicated to exploring the theoretical and practical aspects of the recently proposed lifting of correspondences between manifolds to linear operators between functional spaces. Such functional representation of mappings between geometric data has already shown the potential to make a large impact on geometric data analysis by providing flexible and efficient tools for many challenging tasks including deformable shape matching and editing. We are planning to have one or two invited talks that will overview the key notions and describe existing applications of functional maps to a wide audience. Contributed papers and talks will present state-of-the-art results.

Workshop 3
3D Computer Vision in the Built Environment

Organizers: Daniel Huber and Burcu Akinci

Buildings and other infrastructure provide a limited, yet challenging, domain for 3D computer vision techniques. Terrestrial laser scanners, RGB-D cameras, mobile scanning robots, and micro air vehicles (MAVs) are just some of the platforms that are being used to capture and model the built environment. Such 3D models have enormous potential for aiding practitioners in a wide variety of fields, ranging from architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) to post-disaster search and rescue. This workshop will explore the state of the art in techniques that use 3D imaging for modeling, analyzing, and understanding the built environment.

Call for Workshops

The 2nd International Conference on 3D Vision (3DV2014) Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with 3DV2014 in Tokyo, Japan, December 8th-11th, 2014. The workshops will take place on December 8th, 2014. The scope of the proposal should be consistent as possible with the conference themes as described on the conference homepage.

Workshops provide an informal setting where the participants have the opportunity to discuss cutting-edge research issues and emerging topics in 3D vision technology in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas. We hope to bring together researchers from different academic communities as well as from industry or public institutions. Each workshop should be well-focused, and encourage collaboration and discussions among the participants. Workshop duration may be between a half day and a full day. Workshops may consist of talks by invited speakers, panel discussions, presentations by authors of contributed papers, or a combination of the above. Workshops may take a combined reviewing procedure: a rejected main conference paper has an option to be considered as a workshop paper if its authors wish to.

Important Dates:

  • Workshop proposal deadline: May 1st, 2014
  • Workshop acceptance notification: May 15th, 2014
  • Workshop Call for Papers (to be ready on the web): May 30th, 2014
  • (Suggested) Workshop paper submission deadline: August 31, 2014
  • (Suggested) Workshop paper acceptance notification: September 30th, 2014
  • Workshop paper camera-ready deadline: October 10th, 2014
  • Workshop dates: December 8th, 2014

Workshop Logistics

Workshop organizers are responsible of the scientific organization and advertising of the event. Logistic and financial aspects are handled by the 3DV2014 organization. Workshop organizers can decide on their own deadlines for submission and reviews, but they must comply with the overall 3DV2014 rules, particularly:

  • papers must be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers;
  • papers must comply with the 3DV2014 proceedings style (i.e., IEEE format) and have a maximum length of 8 pages; and
  • the deadline for camera-ready submission is October 10th, 2014.

Workshops will benefit from the registration process of 3DV2014. All workshop participants are required to register for the main conference. During registration, the participants will specify which workshop(s) they are going to attend. Each seminar room has the capacity to accommodate up to 40-50 people.

Workshop papers that are presented at the workshop are planned to be published by IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and submitted to IEEE Xplore and CSDL.

Conference and workshop papers will be distributed via memory sticks for the participants. Therefore, workshop organizers are responsible for collecting all the accepted papers and ensuring the proper IEEE format before October 10th, 2014.

Policy regarding our combined reviewing procedure

Each workshop has two ways to receive paper submissions: workshop only and via the main conference. Submissions via the main conference follow the policy below. When a paper is submitted to the main conference, the authors choose if they would like the paper to be considered as a paper of one of the workshops in case the paper is rejected by the main conference. Once the paper is accepted by the main conference, the paper will be automatically withdrawn from its connected workshop. Papers rejected by the main conference that are connected with a workshop by the authors will be automatically passed to the workshop. After the main conference paper acceptance notification, workshop organizers can access reviews and consolidations of those papers that are passed to the workshop. Workshop organizers can then decide how many additional "workshop-specific" reviewers are needed to review each of those papers (Note: it is recommended to have at the least one "workshop-specific" reviewer to assess each paper). Finally, workshop organizers may decide whether to accept or reject those papers by taking into account all the available reviews.

Submitting a Proposal

Proposals for workshops should be between two and five pages in length, and should include the following information:

  • Contact information of the workshop organizers (name, affiliations, e-mail, fax, and telephone)
  • A short technical description of the workshop (title, goals/motivation, discussion of why the topic is of particular interest, and to whom the workshop is of interest)
  • A description of the workshop format, the potential invited speakers (if any, funding to be organized by workshop organizers), and duration of the workshop (full day or half day)
  • The expected number of participants, the estimated number of submissions and an anticipated acceptance rate
  • A description of the qualifications of the individual committee members with respect to organizing the workshop
  • If available, the number of submitted/accepted papers and approximate attendance numbers for the past editions of the workshop
  • A preliminary call for papers
  • Declaration of whether or not our combined reviewing procedure is used.

Each proposal should be submitted by email to the 3DV2014 workshop chairs, Akihiro Sugimoto ( and Daniel Huber ( The proposals will be peer reviewed.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. We are looking forward to receiving your proposals.
