Congratulations to Anton van den Hengel, David Suter, Anthony Dick, and Henry Detmold, who were recently awarded a major grant for ‘Accelerating Australia’s large scale video surveillance research programmes’:
Anton van den Hengel gave a talk at the Max Planck Center for Visual Computing and Communication in Saarbreuken (Germany) about 3D User-Created Content (3DUCC). Anton was in Saarbrueken visiting the Computer Graphics Department of Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik there, and particularly the group of Dr. Thorsten Thormaehlen.
We have been successful in attracting a Capability and Technology Demonstrator (CTD) Program award from the Federal Government and DSTO.
