Thu Apr 29 04:30:04 CDT 2010

== Reminder - seminar via the Access Grid - or live in Manchester 
tomorrow Friday ==

Andrew Davison is one of the founders of these algorithms to combine 
image processing for 3D data extraction from robotic / UAV control: 
there are already three serious Open Source versions around. If you wish 
to meet for lunch (sorry not over AG) please email.

yours Martin
