Recent Advances in the Analysis of 3D Shapes

The preparation meeting is already over. If you want to participate, but couldn't come, please write an email to Thomas Windheuser . For more information see our slides of the preparation meeting.

Seminar for computer science master students (IN2107) and mathematics bachelor and master students.

The seminar will be similar to the previous seminar in summer semester 2014. For more information see here: Seminar: Recent Advances in the Analysis of 3D Shapes.


Three­dimensional data has been used for decades in computer science. Nevertheless, methods for the automatic analysis, recognition, categorization and comparison of 3D objects have become an active field of research only recently. In this seminar, we will start by reviewing the classical approaches in the literature and then proceed to investigate methods for automatic retrieval and analysis of 3D models. The course will touch upon the most recent advances in the field. Particular emphasis will be put on defining and computing similarity between shapes, when these shapes are allowed to undergo non­rigid deformations (e.g. different poses of a human model).
