ICIAP2019 will host the presentation of the results of the Challange DAFNE (Digital Anastylosis of Frescoes challeNgE). This is an international competition in the artistic heritage sector designed to provide virtual solutions that ultimately add to the fresco restorer’s toolkit. The deadline for on-line registration is 31st May 2019.

Brave new Ideas

ICIAP 2019 will also solicit submissions of “brave new ideas” papers. These papers explore highly innovative ideas, visionary applications and theoretical paradigm shifts in the area of computer vision, pattern recognition, machine learning, multimedia analysis and image processing. These papers can arise, for instance, from highly interdisciplinary works (e.g. involving socio-technical studies), from research that exploits innovative data sources as well as from studies that adopt radically new strategies for addressing a well established task. Due to their visionary nature, the underlying studies can be at an embryonic stage and experimental results can be at preliminary level. However, we expect these papers to provide evidence of the validity of the proposed contribution.

Industrial Session

In this Industrial Session we will bring together researchers and practitioners in industrial engineering and computer science interested in industrial machine vision to overview the state of the art and identify the most interesting research lines. We welcome contributions involving traditional and non-conventional vision (e.g. IR and X-ray), visual inspection, real-time computer vision, 3D reconstruction and vision for robotics, etc... Position papers presenting new industrial systems and case studies, possibly reporting preliminary validation studies, are also encouraged, therefore we expect a positive response from both academic and industrial communities.

INVITED TALKS

1- Autonomous, Agile, Vision-controlled Drones: from Frame to Event Vision

Speaker: Davide Scaramuzza

 

When:Wednesday, September 11, 09:00 - 10:00

Where: Sala 1

 

Abstract:  Autonomous quadrotors will soon play a major role in search-and-rescue and remote-inspection missions, where a fast response is crucial. Quadrotors have the potential to navigate quickly through unstructured environments, enter and exit buildings through narrow gaps, and fly through collapsed buildings. However, their speed and maneuverability are still far from those of birds. Indeed, agile navigation through unknown, indoor environments poses a number of challenges for robotics research in terms of perception, state estimation, planning, and control. In this talk, I will show that active vision is crucial in order to plan trajectories that improve the quality of perception. Also, I will talk about our recent results on event based vision to enable low latency sensory motor control and navigation in low light and high dynamic environment, where traditional vision sensor fail.

 

Bio: Davide Scaramuzza (born in 1980, Italian) is Professor of Robotics and Perception at both departments of Informatics (University of Zurich) and Neuroinformatics (ETH Zurich and University of Zurich), where he does research at the intersection of robotics and computer vision. He did his PhD in robotics and computer vision at ETH Zurich and a postdoc at the University of Pennsylvania. From 2009 to 2012, he led the European project sFly, which introduced the PX4 autopilot (used in half a million commercial drones today) and pioneered vision-based autonomous navigation of micro drones. For his research contributions, he was awarded the prestigious IEEE Robotics and Automation Early Career Award, the SNSF-ERC Starting Grant, a Google, Qualcomm, and INTEL awards, and several paper awards. He coauthored the book "Introduction to Autonomous Mobile Robots" (published by MIT Press; 10,000 copies sold) and more than 100 papers on robotics and perception. He has served as a consultant for the United Nations (UN) International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Fukushima Action Plan on Nuclear Safety, and several drone and computer-vision companies. In 2015, he cofounded Zurich-Eye, which later became Facebook-Oculus Zurich. 

Many aspects of his research have been prominently featured in the popular press, such as Discovery Channel, BBC, The New York Times, IEEE Spectrum, MIT Technology Review Magazine.

 

 

2- Past Forward: When Computer Vision and Archaeology Meet

Speaker: Ayellet Tal

 

When:Thursday, September 12 , 09:00 - 10:00

Where: Sala 1

 

Abstract:  Ayellet Tal is a professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and heads the Computer Graphics and Multimedia Lab at the Technion, Israel. She holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Princeton University and a B.Sc degree (Summa cum Laude) in Mathematics and Computer Science from Tel-Aviv University. Her research interests span computer graphics, computer vision and information visualization. She regularly serves as an area chair and as a member of program committees of the major international conferences and as an associate editor of journals.

 

Bio: Technology is the symbol of our age. Nevertheless, some fields have been left out of the revolution. One of these is archaeology, where many tasks are still performed manually - from the initial excavation, through documentation, to restoration. It turns out that some of these activities are classical computer vision tasks, such as puzzle solving, shape completion, matching and edge detection. The objects, however, are much harder to deal with than usual, since they are broken and eroded after laying underground for thousands of years. Therefore, being able to handle these objects benefits not only archaeology, but also computer vision. In this talk I will describe some of the algorithms we have developed to replace manual restoration.



3- Hearing the shape of things

Speaker: Emanuele Rodolà

 

When:Friday, September 13, 09:00 - 09:45

Where: Sala 1

 

Abstract:  Spectral geometry is at the heart of a variety of problems in computer vision, graphics, pattern recognition and machine learning. Ultimately, the core reason for its success can be traced down to questions of stability and informativeness of the eigenvectors and eigenvalues of certain operators. In this talk, I will discuss and show tangible examples of such properties, and showcase some dramatic implications on a selection of notoriously hard problems in computer vision and graphics. First, I will address the question whether one can recover the shape of a geometric object from its vibration frequencies (‘hear the shape of the drum’); while theoretically the answer to this question is negative, little is known about the practical possibility of using the spectrum for shape reconstruction and optimization. I will introduce a numerical procedure called isospectralization, showing how this *practical* problem is solvable. Then, I will discuss the widespread problem of data corruption and partiality, and demonstrate how knowledge of the behavior of the spectral decomposition of Laplacians can lead to unprecedented results as exemplified on partial dense correspondence of deformable 3D shapes. I will conclude my talk with an overview of current and future work in these areas, with a look at potential applications in computational biology, computer-assisted medical diagnosis, and deep learning.

 

Bio:  Emanuele Rodolà is a tenured professor of computer science at Sapienza University of Rome, where he leads the Geometric and Visual Computing group funded by an ERC Starting Grant (2018-). Previously, he held positions at USI Lugano, TU Munich, and the University of Tokyo under various fellowships. He holds or has held visiting positions at Tel Aviv University, Technion, Ecole polytechnique, Harvard, and Stanford. He received best paper awards at 3DPVT 2010, VMV 2015, and SGP 2016, has been serving since 2010 in the program committees of CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, etc., has been serving as Area Chair at 3DV since 2016, founded and chaired several successful workshops including the IEEE workshop on Geometry Meets Deep Learning, organized multiple SHREC contests, and was recognized 8 times as IEEE Outstanding Reviewer. He gave tutorials and short courses in multiple occasions at ECCV, EUROGRAPHICS, SGP, SIGGRAPH, and SIGGRAPH Asia. His work on 3D reconstruction was featured by the national Italian television (RAI) in 2012. His research focuses on spectral geometry processing, 3D computer vision and geometric deep learning, and has published more than 60 papers in these areas.



4- Cognitive Vision for Human Robot Interaction

Speaker: Alessandra Sciutti

 

When:Friday, September 13, 09:45 - 10:30

Where: Sala 1

 

Abstract: Society is expecting robots to enter our houses and factories tomorrow, with the aim of cooperating with us. For this goal to be achievable, it is necessary that these agents become primarily cognitive systems, endowed with a cognitive architecture that enables them to adapt, predict, and pro-actively interact with the environment and the human partners. In this framework, vision needs to be cognitive: purposive, adaptive and anticipatory. Furthermore an artificial cognitive visual system which aims at existing and thriving in a human society needs the ability to communicate. 

Human communication is based on mutual understanding: I know how to communicate because I entertain a model of you, which enables me to select an effective way to convey to you what I want and to have an intuition of your internal states – what you need, fear or desire. Such intuition guides my vision, enabling me to perceive properties that would be otherwise not accessible to my perception, as goals, emotions or effort.

Our contribution to the roadmap toward cognitive vision systems leverages on the use of a humanoid robot (iCub) to try and test some of our assumptions on how to build a cognitive interactive agent. We attempt at modeling the minimal skills necessary for cognitive development, focusing on the visual features that enable to recognize the presence of other agents in the scene, to allow action matching across different visual perspectives and to foster automatic speed adaptation in human-robot interactive repetitive tasks. We investigate how a robot could leverage on visual signals to anticipate the partner’s goals for collaborative or competitive purposes, to infer the right moment to interact and to assess the emotional reactions of the partners.  

In a dual approach we are trying to understand how to modulate robot behavior to elicit better human understanding and to express different characteristics of the interaction: from the mood to the level of commitment. This approach is propaedeutic to the creation of a cognitive vision system, by helping in the definition of what is relevant to attend to, starting from signals originating from the intrinsic characteristics of the human body. 

We believe that only a structured effort toward cognitive vision – or better visually-enabled cognition – will in the future allow for more humane machines, able to see the world and people as we do and engage with them in a meaningful manner. 


Bio: Alessandra received her Ph.D. in Humanoid Technologies from the University of Genoa (Italy) in 2010. After a Post Doc at theIstituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) and two research periods in USA and Japan, she became the scientific responsible of the Cognitive Robotics and Interaction Laboratory of the RBCS Dept. at IIT. After being Assistant Professor in Bioengineering at DIBRIS University of Genoa, she is now Tenure-Track Researcher at theIstituto Italiano di Tecnologia, head of the COgNiTive Architecture for Collaborative Technologies (CONTACT) unit. In 2018 she has been awarded the ERC Starting Grant wHiSPER, focused on the investigation of joint perception between humans and robots. She published more than 60 papers and abstracts and participated in the coordination of the CODEFROR European IRSES project. She is an Associate Editor of Robots and Autonomous Systems, Cognitive Systems Research and the International Journal of Humanoid Robotics and she has served as a member of the Program Committee for the International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction and IEEE International conference on Development and Learning and Epigenetic Robotics.  The scientific aim of her research is to investigate the sensory and motor mechanisms underlying mutual understanding in human-human and human-robot interaction.

About the City

The city of Trento: the unique charm of a renaissance alpine city, where history is art.

Trento is a city rooted in art and history, where the Italian and Mitteleuropean cultures meet. Unique amongst the alpine cities, the City of the Council (1545 - 1563) still keeps its precious monuments as tokens of its rich artistic and historic heritage. Built in the elegant renaissance style, they have been enhanced by recent refurbishing works.

Special mention goes to the Castello del Buonconsiglio, the Castle for several centuries residence of the Prince-Bishops of Trento; the Duomo, the Cathedral of Trento dedicated to San Vigilio, its gorgeous piazza and fountain dedicated to Neptune, the frescoed houses and Council churches as well as the museums and exhibitions which make the city of Trento a true landmark of alpine arts, culture and traditions.

Concilio di Trento (Concilium Tridentinum)

The Council of Trento, held between 1545 and 1563 in Trento and Bologna, was one of the Roman Catholic Church’s most important ecumenical councils. Prompted by the Protestant Reformation, it has been described as the embodiment of the Counter-Reformation.

Castello del Buonconsiglio (Buonconsiglio Castle)

The Castello del Buonconsiglio is the largest and most important monumental complex of the Trentino Alto Adige region.

It was the residence of the Principi Vescovi (Prince-Bishops) of Trentofrom the 13th century to the end of the 18th century, and is composed of a series of buildings of different eras, enclosed by walls and positioned slightly higher than the city:

  • the Castelvecchio is the oldest part, dominated by an imposing cylindrical tower
  • the Magno Palazzo is the 16th century expansion in the Italian Renaissance-style as commissioned by the Prince-Bishop and Cardinal Bernardo Clesio (1485-1539)
  • the Baroque-style Giunta Albertiana dates from the end of the 17thcentury
  • at the extreme south of the complex is the Torre Aquila, within which is conserved the famous Cycle of the Months, one of the most fascinating secular pictorial cycles of the late Middle Ages.

Also of exceptional interest are the extensive cycle of frescoes commissioned by the bishops to decorate the interior walls of the Castle, mainly in the late Middle Ages to the Renaissance period. After the end of the Episcopal principality (1803) the castle was used as a barracks; following its restoration in 1924, it became the National Museum, and since 1973 it belongs to the Autonomous Province of Trento.

Duomo di Trento (Cathedral of Trento)

Trento’s Cathedral is dedicated to Saint Vigil and has ancient origins.

There are in fact records that indicate the first church was built on the burial ground of this saint, martyred in the fifth century. It was then enlarged, whilst its present appearance is owed to Bishop Federico Vanga, who entrusted the redesigning of the cathedral to Adam d’Argogno in 1212. The position of the church is the result of his plan.

The construction, continued over the centuries by d’Arogno’s descendants, underwent various changes with respect to the original project due both to the churches needs and the changes in construction techniques. The contrast between the Romanesque style and the height of the vaults recalling gothic cathedrals is extraordinary. Two climbing staircases built into the lateral walls lead up to the two bell towers, in the opposite direction to the altar. Amongst the numerous works of art it is worth noting the worshipped wooden statue of Our Lady of Sorrow, some of the altars, a series of canvasses, the Romanesque sculpture (credited to Adam d’Arogno) called the Madonna of the Drowned, at whose feet the bodies of people who drowned in the Adige or the irrigation channels that flowed through the city and funeral monuments of numerous famous political and religious characters were placed.

In the southern aisle the Alberti Chapel can be found. This contains a large crucifix, in front of which, on 4 December 1563 at the end of the Council, the decrees of the counterreformation were promulgated.

The high Altar with a baroque canopy above, erected in the middle of the eighteenth century with the annulment of the citizens vote during the French siege of 1703, holds the urn with the relics of Saint Vigil.

The frescoes, created between the 13th and 15th century, can be attributed to painters from Venetian, Lombardian and late gothic schools and depict classic Christian themes.

The palaeochristian basilica can be entered from the northern transept, which an excavation campaign lasted several years made accessible.

Trento offers visitors its richly historical and artistic heritage all year around. Visitors can admire its beauties while strolling around the city centre’s alleys, enjoying shopping or visiting the city’s museums.

Museo del Castello del Buonconsiglio

The castle has numerous art and archaeological collections that were first assembled in the mid-19th century within the Civic Museum of Trento and include objects that date from prehistory up to the first half of the 19thcentury documenting the historical and artistic events of Trento and its surrounding territory.

For more information, please see the dedicated website.

MUSE, Museo delle Scienze (MUSE, Science Museum)

MUSE is a place of constant change, from the main exhibitions, up to date with the latest developments, to special projects, with prestigious national and international collaborations, and finally to MUSE Lab, where the most advanced experiments in the field of new technologies take place.

The exhibition of Muse uses the metaphor of the mountain to describe life on Earth.

You start from the top: the terrace and the 4th floor allow us to encounter the sun and ice, and from there you descend to investigate the issues of biodiversity, sustainability, and evolution, until you reach the basement and the wonder of the tropical greenhouse.
