Important Dates












This workshop is a continuation of the First Workshop on Egocentric Vision, originally held in CVPR 2009. Advances in camera miniaturization and mobile computing have made it feasible to capture and process photos and videos from cameras worn on a person's body and "looking out" at the world. Such an egocentric perspective of visual computing naturally ties into everyday life and provides a level of detail and ubiquity that may well exceed what is possible from environmental cameras. For instance, a lapel or shoulder-mounted camera is particularly well-suited to monitor and track daily activities by recognizing objects being handled, gestures performed via hand motion and social interactions with other people. Initial deployment of such technologies, such as the Microsoft SenseCam, have already made an impact in daily life-logging and memory enhancement. Egocentric vision will continue to make an impact in applications in healthcare, education, entertainment and human-resource management.

Welcome to the Second Workshop on Egocentric Vision, held in conjunction with CVPR 2012, on June 17, 2012 at Providence, Rhode island. We call for a converged effort to address the challenges and opportunities of egocentric vision emerging in a world populated with personal and "wearable" cameras.

Please check out the preliminary call for papers for a description of the purpose and scope of this workshop.
