cvmp Nov. 12-13th in the UK, the newly revamped CVMP conference kicks off at the BFI on London’s Southbank. Designed to be refocused on the industry and covering high end technical issues, the CVMP is shaping up to be a very good conference. The conference is aimed at Chief Tech. Officers, TDs, pipeline specialists, researchers and engineers.

In this net-digital age it is easy to the think that you can cover most stuff from a combination of YouTube and PDF paper downloads, but we have found that, like Siggraph, conferences such as CVMP offer a real chance to gain insight far beyond what you can get from your laptop. Special sessions this year cover topics such as Advanced technology in post production and Capturing 3D Worlds. Info can be found at http://www.cvmp-conference.org. Registration is between 150 to 330 pounds.
