The annual colloquium organized by the computer science department of Ecole Polytechnique (LIX) will take place at the Ecole Polytechnique (on-site at Palaiseau, a suburb district of Paris) at the Pierre Faurre auditorium on November 18-20, 2008. A direct bus shuttle downtown Paris<->Ecole Polytechnique Δ will be provided to participants.
This year, the international colloquium of LIX (Ecole Polytechnique) focuses on the emerging trends and challenges of the foundations of the cross-disciplinary area of <font color="FF0000">visual computing</font>. 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 <font color="FF00FF">computational photography</font>,
<font color="FF00FF">3D cinematography</font> and <font color="FF00FF">advanced biomedical imaging</font>.
The colloquium will review recent breakthroughs by renown invited experts and survey emerging trends and emphasize on key open challenges. Participants are kindly encouraged to discuss on core scientific and technological issues that need to be further tackled.
The bus will depart at <font color="FF0000">Noon 30 (12h30) </font in front of
<font color="FF0000">Hotel Montparnasse Alesia</font> (147 ter rue d'Alesia, 75014 Paris)
