In the last months, several of our WASP peers have received awards at different conferences. Here are some that has come to the knowledge of the editorial office.

Best Student Paper at ICCV

Awarded for the paper: PLMP – Point-Line Minimal Problems in Complete Multi-View Visibility

Kathlén Kohn, WASP assistant professor, KTH, is co-author to an article that received one of the highest prizes there are in Computer Vision – the Best Student Paper Award at ICCV 2019 (Seoul).

From the conference webpage article:

“The paper presents a complete classification of all minimal problems for generic arrangements of points and lines fully observed by calibrated perspective cameras. This theoretical result makes an important contribution to understanding the space of geometrical problems in 3D reconstruction that can be efficiently solved. […]”

The SOAP workshop’s Best Presentation Award

Award for the paper “MetaDL: Analysing Datalog in Datalog”
Authors: Alexandru Dura, Hampus Balldin, Christoph Reichenbach


Datalog has emerged as a powerful tool for expressing static program analyses. Program analysis researchers have built nontrivial code bases in Datalog, but tool support for working with Datalog itself has been lacking. In this paper, we introduce MetaDL, a language extension to Datalog that enables source-level Datalog program analysis within Datalog. We describe several program analyses implemented in MetaDL and report on initial experiences. Our findings show that the language is effective for real-life Datalog analysis and can simplify working with Datalog source code.
