The international colloquium of LIX (Ecole Polytechnique) focused on the emerging trends and challenges of the foundations of the cross-disciplinary area of visual computing. Visual computing encompasses computational geometry, computer graphics, machine vision and learning (just to name a few), and relies at its very heart on information geometry. Visual computing is underpinning major industrial applications as attested recently by the emerging fields of computational photography, 3D cinematography and advanced biomedical imaging.
The recorded lectures are also available offline in an ISO DVD.
