Conference secretary is Abi Bowman project manager at The Foundry. This year the latest research developments will be presented together with real-world industry applications combining to deliver a melting pot of ideas and experience. The event promises to be fascinating and informative with a line up that already includes Matt Welford head of compositing at Weta Digital (The Day The Earth Stood Still  The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian  King Kong  The Lord of the Rings trilogy) Professor Marc Pollefeys from ETHZ and Dr. Toni Mateos of Barcelona Media. Special sessions this year are Advanced Technology in Post Production and Capturing 3D Worlds.
