Kitware will be sponsoring and actively participating in the 19th IEEE Winter Conference on Applications of Computer Vision (WACV). This is the IEEE’s and the PAMI-TC’s premier meeting on applications of computer vision, being held at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, Hawaii, January 7-11. Over the years, the Computer Vision team has consistently participated in this well-respected conference through organizational roles, sponsorship, workshops, technical papers, presentations, and more. This year is no different. Make sure to check out the full details below for Kitware’s participation so you don’t miss out on an opportunity to meet with our team.
Each year WACV continues to grow with active participation by academia, industry, and government representatives. The event’s combination of workshops, tutorials and main sessions all focus on providing in-depth information on cutting edge research advances in applications of computer vision technology. Topics such as biometrics, deep learning, action recognition, surveillance, 3D reconstruction, tracking, detection, and vision and learning will be discussed in various formats such as presentations, poster sessions, and forums. This venue promotes collaboration, research and development, and insight into computer vision applications and technology. Make sure to look at the final WACV19 program schedule for the list of events.
Kitware is a Silver Sponsor at WACV19! Each year, Kitware sponsors this event to support the community, recruit computer vision professionals, and to continue collaboration and engagement. We have a long-standing presence and level of participation at WACV as computer vision and deep learning are key elements to furthering advanced application development for various industries and for Kitware.
Kitware’s Senior Director of computer vision, Dr. Anthony Hoogs, is an acting workshop co-chair at the 1st Annual Workshop on Human Activity Detection in Multi-Camera, Continuous, Long-Duration Video (HADCV’19). This workshop will be held on January 7 and will focus on human activity detection in multi-camera video streams. This is a very valuable topic that can positively impact applications supporting those in the public safety and security sectors, crime prevention, human-robot interaction, human-computer interaction and more.
Finally, on January 11th the “Workshop on Image and Video Forensics” will be held, with Dr. Anthony Hoogs as an acting Workshop Co-Chair. This workshop will bring together experts from computer vision, computer graphics, and image processing to advance the state-of-the-art in detecting post-hoc image manipulations, and in linking images and video to camera models or even individual devices.
Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule meetings throughout this event. Kitware will be on-hand for in depth conversations on technology development as well as employment opportunities at Kitware. We are looking forward to engaging with this community and sharing information on Kitware’s ongoing research and capability development in computer vision and deep learning as well as our cutting-edge open source vision software, KWIVER.
