Statistical Inferences on Shape Manifolds
May 6 to May 9, 2005
American Institute of Mathematics,
Palo Alto, California
and Anuj Srivastava
This workshop will be devoted to
algorithmic and computational shape analysis. It will
bring together researchers in the field of shape analysis
to identify and discuss outstanding issues in algorithmic
shape representation, statistical inferences
on shape manifolds, and applications to
areas such as medical imaging,
homeland security and military target recognition.
Algorithmic shape analysis has a multidisciplinary nature, so
the workshop will seek to promote interaction and foster the
development of new collaborations among
researchers with expertise in mathematics, statistics and image
analysis. The main topics for the workshop are:
- Representations of 2D and 3D shapes
- Statistical models and inferences on shape manifolds
- Applications to computer vision and pattern recognition
