The recent improvements in the 3D sensing technologies have caused a
remarkable amplification in the utilization of 3D data. 3D information has
found tremendous use in Autonomous Driving, 3D Mapping, Quality Control,
Drones and UAVs or Robot Guidance to name but a few applicative domains.
These applications typically fuse different modalities such as range
images, stereo triangulations, structure-from-motion reconstructions or
laser scans. A common flexible representation governing all these are point
clouds. Thus, in many of the applications that rely on multiple 3D
acquisitions, good registration of point clouds is a prerequisite. Yet,
when unstructured dense scans of large scenes are of concern, establishing
the alignment in a fully automatic manner is far from being trivial -- a
difficulty that is exacerbated when the scans in question are allowed to
undergo locally non-rigid deformations due to mis-calibration of the
capturing device or object movement.

In such a complex scenario, researchers are now taking on the challenge of
accurately auto-stitching tens of millions of unstructured/structured
points that include symmetries, self-similarities and that do not admit
scan-order constraints. This workshop will be dedicated to exploring the
theoretical and practical aspects of obtaining multi-view global alignment
and registration of scans captured by any 3D data modality. Our main
objective is to gather together industry experts, academic researchers, and
practitioners of 3D data acquisition and scene reconstruction into a lively
environment for discussing methodologies and challenges raised by the
emergence of large-scale 3D reconstruction applications; as a targeted
topic venue, this workshop will offer participants a unique opportunity to
network with a diverse but focused research community.

The goal of this workshop is to push the frontier in the area of global
multi-scan alignment. Focal points for discussions and solicited
submissions include but are not limited to:

   - *Multiview registration using scene priors*
   - *Global point cloud alignment*
   - *Learning methods for correspondence estimation*
   - *3D Object reconstruction from multiple views*
   - *Joint registration and segmentation of multiple scans*
   - *Joint matching of multiple non-rigid surfaces*
   - *Multiview object detection*
   - *Multi-object Instance reconstruction*
   - *Feature descriptors for multiview 3D matching*
   - *Multiview pose estimation*
   - *Joint processing of multiple point clouds*
   - *Pose averaging and error diffusion on graphs*
   - *Multiview stitching of 3D scans on mobile and embedded devices*
   - *Practical applications of multiple scan registration on large
   scale settings*
   - *Datasets and methods for ground truth acquisition*
