iPhone_6600Last week, we journeyed to Tokyo, Japan, to lead a workshop entitled “3D Computer Vision in the Built Environment.” The workshop was held in conjunction with the International Conference on 3D vision (3DV).

The workshop featured a number of interesting talks on aspects of 3D computer vision related to civil infrastructure modeling and analysis. Professor Hiroshi Masuda, from the University of Tokyo, gave a crowd-pleasing keynote address.

Organizing the workshop was a lot of work, but we had a great turnout, and many of the people attending the meeting voiced their feedback that it was a good opportunity to connect people from computer science backgrounds with people from civil engineering backgrounds.
