Fifth Workshop on
Non-Rigid Shape Analysis and Deformable Image Alignment (NORDIA'12)
October 7, 2012, Firenze, Italy (in conjunction with ECCV
Nonrigid and deformable shapes are ubiquitous in the world surrounding
us, on all levels from micro to macro. The need to study such shapes
and model their behavior arises in a wide spectrum of applications,
ranging from medical imaging and augmented reality to design
engineering and homeland security. In recent years, problems of
nonrigid shape analysis and deformable image alignment have attracted a
growing interest in computer vision and pattern recognition
communities, which has led to rapid development of the field, where
state-of-the-art results from very different sciences - theoretical and
numerical geometry, optimization, linear algebra, graph theory, machine
learning and computer graphics, to mention a few - are applied to find
NORDIA'12 follows the success of the previous issues of the workshop in
2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. The purpose of the workshop is to
bring together leading researchers dealing with different aspects of
nonrigid shape analysis and deformable image alignment in order to
promote new interdisciplinary collaborations and expose each side to
the most recent results and problems in each field. The purpose is to
identify new problems as well as potential solutions. The unique value
of the workshop is bringing together people from communities
traditionally considered to be working in different areas and rarely
meeting in the same conferences.
