FINAL ANNOUNCEMENT FINAL ANNOUNCEMENT
CURRENT ISSUES IN STATISTICAL SHAPE ANALYSIS
International Conference run by Statistics Department,
University of Leeds, UK,
(incorporating 15th Leeds Statistics Research Workshop and CoMIR)
April 5-7, 1995
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 aims to bring together workers
in the field, to discuss both theoretical and practical issues.
