It will give you an overview of future developments in Visual Computing by top-level invited experts. You will learn about key open challenges, scientific- and industrial trends.

Visual Computing is the discipline of computer science which deals with the acquisition, representation, manipulation, analysis, synthesis and application of visual information, i.e. images and image sequences in a spatial and temporal context. Visual Computing has evolved from the methodological merging of image processing, computer vision, computer graphics and visualisation. Participants are encouraged to participate in extended discussions on core technological issues.
