Range-Imaging Sensors and Applications 2011 Workshop

The TOF Range-Imaging Sensors and Applications (RISA) international workshop on Jan 27-28, 2011 in Trento, Italy will bring together for the first time experts of Range-Imaging (RIM) cameras from the metrology as well as sensor side and let the two communities communicate much more on the RIM topic in order to exchange ideas, activate collaborations and provide possible improvements both in the sensor and application sides. The workshop agenda has a lot of interesting stuff:

TOF Range-Imaging sensors, characteristics and performances
Dario Piatti - Dept. DITAG, Politecnico of Torino, Italy

Integrated calibration of range cameras and their application for deflection measurement
Derek Lichti - Department of Geomatics Engineering, The University of Calgary, Canada

SR-4000 and CamCube3.0 ToF cameras: tests and comparison
Fulvio Rinaudo – Dept. DITAG, Politecnico of Torino, Italy

ToF cameras for architectural survey
Filiberto Chiabrando – Dept. DITAG, Politecnico of Torino, Italy

Indoor Navigation using Range Imaging
Tobias Kohoutek - Institute of Geodesy and Photogrammetry, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

Range Imaging - from calibration to modelling
Wilfried Karel and Norbert Pfeifer - Institute of Geodesy and Photogrammetry, TU Vienna, Austria

Photogrammetric Calibration and Accuracy Test for a Range Camera
Jan Boehm - Dept. of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering, UCL London, UK

A Probabilistic Approach to TOF and Stereo Data Fusion
Carlo Dal Mutto, Pietro Zanuttigh, Guido M. Cortelazzo - Dept. of Information Eng., University of Padova, Italy

Time-of-Flight cameras in robotics - state of the art and selected applications

  1. Italian ToF Mafia :)?

  2. Dear Anonymous,

    We’re sorry that you felt obviously somehow excluded by this list of invited speakers.
    You are really welcome to participate to this event, which is intended to be as open as possible as you could see by having a look to the symbolic registration fee.
    If you are working in this field and you feel excluded in the list of international speakers, let us know your name and topic of research and we'll welcome you for a talk at the event.

    Let us just point out that the three leading companies in the field of TOF 3D cameras will participate to this Workshop (by the way, none of them is Italian) and 11 talks are given by international and well-known speakers.

    By all means, this can not be targeted as an Italian closed-knit community event!

    Finally, your use of stereotypes raises some doubts about the quality of your cultural level, which can only be hidden behind the signature “Anonymous”.

    Yours faithfully,

    David & Fabio

    RISA2011 Chairs

    I believe his/her comment was meant to be a joke. I'm sorry if you find it offending. If you still think it's inappropriate, let me know and I'll remove this comment.
