2.  Short Description of the Workshop:

a) Goals/motivation: computer vision and image analysis requires interdisciplinary collaboration between different disciplines like mathematics, computer science, physics, biology, medicine and engineering. This workshop is designed to exercise this multidisciplinary nature of image and video analysis. In particular, this workshop focuses on the topic of extracting geometric properties from incomplete data. Such data are quite often generated from incomplete or noisy measurements. To fill in missing information advanced scientific techniques are invoked.

b) Topics of importance: high accuracy measurements of lengths, curves, geometrical properties like curvature, motion parameters, shape retrieval and other missing information are vital to the analysis of the hidden structure not fully transparent in the image and video data. The proposed topic will also address almost all PSIVT themes with particular relevance for geometric properties: Image/Video Processing and Analysis, Image/Video Retrieval and Scene Understanding, Biomedical Image Processing and Analysis, Computer and Robot Vision or Application on Image and Video Technology.  Papers are invited on the above relevant topics.

c) Addressed participants: the interdisciplinary scope of the workshop will link people from different backgrounds to exchange their current research interests and hopefully facilitates any future collaboration. It is also hoped that such workshop could possibly be organized on a regular basis. As pointed out in Goals and Motivation, the scientists from across different fields will find the common avenues to new interdisciplinary research projects. Such task is not only expected to eventuate within the group of the Conference and Workshop participants but also may be achieved by publishing the accepted papers in the LNCS workshop volume and thus reaching much wider audience.

d) Workshop format: it is intended to contain at least 2-3 sessions run during a full day workshop held on 28th of October 2013. The speakers will deliver the talks and possible software presentation in 25-30 minutes time intervals. Some informal meeting for general discussion at the end of the Workshop is planned.  One invited speaker will open the session. Each of the co-chairs will present at least one paper.
