Visual Computing Trends 2011

Symposium

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.

The symposium has given an overview of future developments in Visual Computing by top-level invited experts. With a focus on key open challenges and scientific and industrial trends. Participants have taken part in extended discussions on core technological issues. The symposium was even more successful than the first one, with more than 320 participants from 17 different countries.
