       Imaging New Modalities


        German Conference on Pattern Recognition, GCPR
        September 03th, 2013, Saarbrücken, Germany


In recent years, a large set of different new imaging sensors technologies have been introduced, either on commercial or consumer level. One of the most prominent examples are range sensors like Time-of-Flight cameras or the Kinect sensor, but also light field cameras and multispectral sensors have drawn a lot of attention.
This workshop aims at the challenges related to processing the imagery data delivered by these new camera-like sensors. Many processing approaches developed in Computer Vision have been applied to this kind of sensor data. However, in many the algorthmic principles had to be adopted significantly (e.g. due to various different sensor characteristics) or completely new approaches have been developed.

This workshop will bring together researchers to exchange their ideas for and insight into processing challenges and novel processing paradigms associated with these sensor data types.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • New imagery sensing principles for
    • active or passive 3D range imaging
    • multispectral imaging
    • THz sensor imaging systems
    • lightfield cameras
  • Sensor simulation
  • Multimodal sensor fusion
  • Processing and analysis for dynamic new imaging systems
    • calibration techniques
    • sensor based image synthesis
    • object recognition and tracking
    • data analysis
  • Novel applications using interactive imagery sensors, e.g. in areas like
    • autonomous robotics
    • medicine and health care
    • industrial automation
    • surveillance
    • human-machine interaction
    • automotive
Novel results of theoretical and practical significance based on interactive 3D vision will be considered.

All accepted contributions will be published in a volume of Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

The paper accepted for oral or poster presentation will be published in the Springer Series "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" (LNCS).



Contributions to the workshop should not exceed 16 pages. Please format your article according to the Springer style guide for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) see


Papers are to be submitted on the following website


File size limit is 10MB for papers, 10MB for supplementary materials and file number limit is one for each.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by independent reviewers. Accepted papers will be presented orally or as poster. All authors will be notified about the acceptance or rejection of their paper after the reviewing process. The review process will be double blind, i.e. authors must omit their names on the submitted papers.
