3DTV-CON 2007
The True Vision: Capture, Transmission And Display of 3D Video
7-9 May 2007,
Kos island, Greece

Summary and Scope
Creating exact 3D moving images as ghost-like replicas of 3D objects has
been an ultimate goal of the scientific community. Capturing 3D scenery,
processing the captured data for transmission, and displaying the result for
3D viewing are the main functional components. These components encompass a
wide range of disciplines: imaging and computer graphics, signal
processing,telecommunications, electronics, optics and physics. The
objective of the 3DTV-CON is to bring together researchers and developers
from academia and industry with diverse experience and activity in distinct,
yet complementary, areas so that full scale 3D video capabilities are
seamlessly integrated.

Important dates
Special sessions and tutorials proposals: 1 Dec 2006
Regular Paper submission:  15 Dec 2006
Notification of acceptance: 9 Feb 2007
Submission of camera-ready papers:  2 March 2007
