Current Issues in Statistical Shape Analysis

Current Issues in Statistical Shape Analysis

Leeds, UK

April 5-7, 1995

An overview of the proceedings is available. A review of the conference by Les Marcus (Queens College of CUNY) may also be of interest.

Statistical shape analysis considers the study of geometrical objects where translation, rotation and possibly scale information can typically be ignored. The subject has received a great deal of recent attention, following the pioneering work of D.G. Kendall and F.L. Bookstein in the late 1970s/early 1980s. Although the methodology is being widely applied there are many key issues that need to be resolved. The conference aimed to bring together workers in the field, to discuss both theoretical and practical issues.

The conference proceedings (edited by K.V. Mardia and C.A. Gill) are available for download here:
