LowCost 3D workshop

Würzburg, Germany: 15-16 December 2022

7th International Workshop

LowCost 3D - Sensors, Algorithms, Applications

LowCost 3D is a series of international workshops on low-cost three-dimensional sensor systems and tools. Ranging from low-cost acquisition devices like handheld scanning systems over inexpensive photogrammetric algorithms to processing software and applications. Started by Prof. Frank Neitzel from Technical University Berlin and Prof. Ralf Reulke from Humboldt-University in Berlin, the workshops were organized and hosted alternating between these two universities. Since 2011 four workshops took place in Berlin, in 2017 the 5th workshop was hosted by the HafenCity University Hamburg and in 2019 the 6th edition of the workshop took place at INSA Strasbourg, France.

The 7th edition of the ISPRS LowCost3D workshop will be organized in Würzburg (Germany) during 15-16 December 2022 at the Graduate School, University of Würzburg. High speed trains to Würzburg provide good connections from all over Europe and Frankfurt airport. The Graduate School is located at 21 Beatrice-Edgell-Weg and can be accessed using buses from the central station. There are many attractions to visit in and around the city, including a Christmas night market. For more information and maps of Würzburg see en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Würzburg.

The event will be held in conjunction with the Optical 3D Metrology (O3DM) workshop. These are two complementary scientific events that will provide delegates with a wide range of topics centred on optical 3D measurement systems and applications. Participants could join both events with just one registration fee.

The LC3D event could be followed remotely via Zoom at this link.

The main focus of the ISPRS workshop is to discuss new developments in low-cost 3D sensor technology, algorithms, and applications. Topics include:

  • Image- and range-based low-cost sensor systems including low-cost scanning systems

  • Low-cost sensor calibration and system integration

  • Accuracy investigations in low-cost sensor systems

  • Low-cost sensors for automatic data acquisition

  • Automation in data registration

  • Point cloud analysis

  • Image matching and 3D reconstruction

  • Low-cost sensors including open-source and free algorithms for terrestrial and UAV 3D modeling

  • Web-based tools for terrestrial 3D modeling

  • 4D modelling

  • Low-cost systems for Virtual and Augmented Reality applied to the visualization of 3D models

  • Low-cost solutions for 3D printing
