CGiV2013 - International Symposium
Forensic Digital Imaging, CGIV-FDI

6-8 August, 2013

● University of Macau ● Macau ● China


The international Forensic Digital Imaging Symposium will focus on every aspect of forensic investigations of image and video material. Efforts in the fields of training, education, research and development are reviewed. Many experts will testify in court, but questions may arise about whether the software used has been validated. We have seen several cases where the wrong conclusions were drawn based on e.g. photogrammetry. New developments in this field are needed; however, in forensic science a good validation of procedures is necessary.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:


                image enhancement/image restoration




                Photogrammetry/3D Reconstruction

                content-based retrieval in video sequences and forensic image databases

                enhancing, extracting, and matching patterns (fingerprints, toolmarks, shoe prints, impressions).
