3DPVT 08: Calls

3DPVT 2008

Fourth International Symposium on

3D Data Processing, Visualization and Transmission

June 18-20, 2008, Klaus Advanced Computing Building, classroom 1443

Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA

Every two years 3DPVT offers researchers, developers, and students the opportunity to present and discuss new research results, technologies, and applications related to the capture, representation, compact storage, transmission, processing, editing, optimization and visualization of 3D geometric and photometric models and their use in architecture, geosciences, medicine, manufacturing, security, entertainment, and other fields.
