Location and Date
The workshop will be held at the Monona Terrace Convention Center. The website for the Terrace describes the facility as follows. “This magnificent, five-level, lakeside facility – inspired by world-renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright – opened its doors in 1997. Since then it has played host to conventions, meetings, banquets and memorable social events.” In particular, the Monona Terrace was the location for the 2003 IEEE Computer Society Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, and feedback from the organizers and attendees of that meeting suggests that the Terrace will be an ideal location for SSP 07.
