ATTENTION: We're pleased to announce that EI 2021 will be fully online! We recognize that one of the most important features of attending EI is interacting with colleagues from Industry and Academia. We are committed to making community connection a priority and to providing ample opportunities to meet and discuss personally with others. We see the move to an online platform as an opportunity for greater numbers of people to join from around the world. Join us on this exciting adventure . . . submit your work today!

Conference Overview

Scientific and technological advances during the last decade in the fields of image acquisition, data processing, telecommunications, and computer graphics have contributed to the emergence of new multimedia, especially 3D digital data. Modern 3D imaging technologies allow for the acquisition of 3D and 4D (3D video) data at higher speeds, resolutions, and accuracies. With the ability to capture increasingly complex 3D/4D information, advancements have also been made in the areas of 3D data processing (e.g., filtering, reconstruction, compression). As such, 3D/4D technologies are now being used in a large variety of applications, such as medicine, forensic science, cultural heritage, manufacturing, autonomous vehicles, security, and bioinformatics. Further, with mixed reality (AR, VR, XR), 3D/4D technologies may also change the ways we work, play, and communicate with each other every day.

In 2021, the 3DIA conference seeks high-quality abstracts and paper presentations featuring novel research and applications in the broad areas of 3D/4D acquisition, processing, transmission, visualization, analysis, and interaction. Both research that describes scientific advances in these areas and research that describes applications of these areas is invited. Given the accelerated rate of adoption of 3D technologies in a wide array of fields and applications, academic researchers and industrial experts alike are welcome to take part in this conference and its discussions.

2021 Special Sessions

For 3D Imaging and Applications 2021, submissions are particularly encouraged for the planned special sessions.

3D Imaging for Cultural Heritage Applications

Session Organizing Chairs:
Robert Sitnik, Warsaw University of Technology (Poland)
Theoharis TheoharisNorwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway)

New methods and algorithms for 3D analysis and research of cultural heritage objects. Research work in the field of 3D imaging applications for cultural heritage is also welcome.

3D/4D Imaging for Digital Human Applications

Session Organizing Chairs:
Robert Sitnik, Warsaw University of Technology (Poland)
