Focus
The recent improvements in the 3D sensing technologies have caused a remarkable amplification in the utilization of 3D data. 3D information has found tremendous use in Autonomous Driving, 3D Mapping, Quality Control, Drones and UAVs or Robot Guidance to name but a few applicative domains. These applications typically fuse different modalities such as range images, stereo triangulations, structure-from-motion reconstructions or laser scans. A common flexible representation governing all these are point clouds. Thus, in many of the applications that rely on multiple 3D acquisitions, good registration of point clouds is a prerequisite. Yet, when unstructured dense scans of large scenes are of concern, establishing the alignment in a fully automatic manner is far from being trivial — a difficulty that is exacerbated when the scans in question are allowed to undergo locally non-rigid deformations due to mis-calibration of the capturing device or object movement.

In such a complex scenario, researchers are now taking on the challenge of accurately auto-stitching tens of millions of unstructured/structured points that include symmetries, self-similarities and that do not admit scan-order constraints. This workshop will be dedicated to exploring the theoretical and practical aspects of obtaining multi-view global alignment and registration of scans captured by any 3D data modality. Our main objective is to gather together industry experts, academic researchers, and practitioners of 3D data acquisition and scene reconstruction into a lively environment for discussing methodologies and challenges raised by the emergence of large-scale 3D reconstruction applications; as a targeted topic venue, this workshop will offer participants a unique opportunity to network with a diverse but focused research community.

TopicsThe goal of this workshop is to push the frontier in the area of global multi-scan alignment. Focal points for discussions and solicited submissions include but are not limited to:

Multiview registration using scene priors

Global point cloud alignment

Learning methods for correspondence estimation

3D Object reconstruction from multiple views

Joint registration and segmentation of multiple scans

Joint matching of multiple non-rigid surfaces

Multiview object detection

Multi-object Instance reconstr

Feature descriptors for multiview 3D matching

Multiview pose estimation

Joint processing of multiple point clouds

Pose averaging and error diffusion on graphs

Multiview stitching of 3D scans on mobile and embedded devices

Practical applications of multiple scan registration on large scale settings

Datasets and methods for ground truth acquisition

Submission 

We are looking forward to submissions, following the enlisted guidelines:

Submitted papers should not have been published, accepted or under review elsewhere.

The submissions can be up to 8 pages (excluding references).

All the papers must be submitted using the templates provided on our webpages.

All the submissions will be subject to double-blind review process. Therefore author names, affiliations, emails, personal acknowledgements, etc. should be removed from the paper.

Every accepted paper requires that at least one author has a workshop-inclusive ICCV registration.

Here are further detailed guidelines.

Published papers will be included in ICCV 2017 proceedings.
