There are plans for a 2007 workshop. Please continue to check the CVPR 2007 web site.
Proceedings and Best Paper
ProCams 2006 is over. We are making available electronic versions of the proceedings, both a 23 MB version with high-resolution images and a 4 MB version with compressed images.
The Best Paper award this year goes to Mark Ashdown, Takahiro Okabe, Imari Sato and Yoichi Sato for Robust Content-Dependent Photometric Projector Compensation. See page 60 of the proceedings.
ProCams 2006 Overview
Recently there has been an explosion of interest in systems which combine projection technology with computer vision. Examples include display walls, interactive display surfaces, intelligent environments and performance art. A characteristic of these systems is their ability to passively sense an environment in support of real-time control of projected light. Research in this area spans a number of disciplines including computer vision, computer graphics, HCI and display technologies. In particular, the theory and techniques used by researchers in the area are related, sometimes complementary, to traditional computer vision techniques employed in stereo-camera and gesture recognition systems. The goal of this workshop was to bring researchers from these different areas together and continue fostering a common research community by examining common research problems and open issues. The workshop also arranged for keynote and capstone speakers who discussed the future of projector-camera systems. In addition, the workshop held a poster session.
ProCams (Saturday, June 17)
On Saturday, June 17, the ProCams 2006 technical workshop was held from 08:0018:00 in room 802 on the 8th floor of the Kimmel Center. There was a reception from 19:0021:00 at Solas Bar, 232 East 9th Street. The keynote talk was given by Shree Nayar, and the capstone talk was given by Mark Bolas. See the program page for a complete list of the sessions.
Projecting Off the Wall (Sunday, June 18)
On Sunday, June 18, from 13:00-18:00, ProCams and the NYU ITP department co-organized "Projecting Off the Wall," a combined art/technical exhibit. It was held at the ITP department, 721 Broadway at Waverly Place, South elevators, 4th floor. See the program page, the Art Exhibit call for participation and the Technical Demonstration call for participation for more information.
To help people find the Kimmel Center (ProCams, Saturday), the Solas Bar (reception, Saturday), and the ITP department (Projecting Off the Wall, Sunday), we created an annotated street map. In addition, here is a map of the 8th floor Kimmel Center.
