Depends has been developed at the Division for Media and Information Technology in the Department of Science and Technology (ITN) at Linkoping University (LiU) in Sweden. The Computer Graphics and Image Processing Group working within the Visual Computing Laboratory is responsible for the software. To this end, a number of white papers have been released describing and promoting the work we have done.
