Call for Full Papers and Extended Abstracts

(in PDF)



The goal of this workshop is to call for a converged effort to understand the opportunities and challenges emerging in egocentric vision, to identify key tasks and evaluate the state of the art, and to discuss future directions. We invite submissions in all fields of vision that explore the egocentric perspective, including, but not limited to:


- Egocentric object detection, recognition and categorization

- Egocentric activity and action recognition

- Egocentric vision in detecting activities of daily living

- Egocentric vision in ubiquitous computing

- Leveraging first-person gaze for egocentric vision

- Human computer/robot interaction using egocentric vision

- Online learning and modeling of objects and scenes

- Data collection, benchmarking, and performance evaluation

- Integration of egocentric vision with other sensors

- Feature detection, tracking, and matching in egocentric video

- Motion analysis and scene segmentation with moving cameras

- Localization and visual SLAM in everyday environments

- Machine learning techniques in egocentric vision
