Meeting on Algebraic Vision 2015

Meeting picture ©

The meeting will be held at the Technical University in Berlin from Oct 8-9, 2015.

Over the last decade, algebraic geometry and polynomial optimization techniques have been used to formulate and solve a number of problems in computer vision. This collaboration has been mostly one-way with computer vision researchers borrowing algebraic geometric and optimization techniques to solve their problems. Much of the vision literature is not known to algebraic geometers and optimization researchers. We believe that all three fields can benefit substantially by talking more to each other and that the time is right for such a collaboration.

To this end, we would like to bring together a small group of experts in computer vision, optimization and algebraic geometry to the first official meeting of an area that we'd like to call "Algebraic Vision".

The main goal of this meeting is to discuss and establish a core set of problems in computer vision that can benefit from the use of optimization and algebraic geometry and establish a research program for them.

The program will be a mix of short talks by 10 invited speakers in all three communities with plenty of time for discussions. We will have further contributions in the form of posters.
