Emerging Trends in Visual Computing
This year, the international colloquium of LIX (Ecole Polytechnique) - organized by Frank Nielsen - focuses on the emerging trends and challenges of the foundations of the cross-disciplinary area of visual computing. Visual computing encompasses computational geometry, computer graphics, machine vision and learning (just to name a few), and relies at its very heart on information geometry. Visual computing is underpinning major industrial applications as attested recently by the emerging fields of computational photography, 3D cinematography and advanced biomedical imaging.
