UCCV 2013

We are pleased to announce the 1st Workshop on User-Centred Computer Vision (UCCV 2013), to be held as part of the IEEE Winter Vision Meetings in Clearwater Beach, Tampa, Florida, U.S.A. from 15th to 17th January 2013. UCCV is a one day workshop intended to provide a forum to discuss the creation of intuitive, interactive and accessible computer vision technologies.

The majority of researchers in computer vision focus on advancing the state-of-the-art in algorithms and methods; there is very little focus on how the state-of-the-art can be usefully presented to the majority of people. Research is required to provide new technology to address the shortcomings in the usability of computer vision. The workshop will bring together researchers from academia and industry in the fields of computer vision and human-computer interaction to discuss the state-of-the-art in user-friendly and developer-friendly computer vision. We invite the submission of original, high quality research papers on user-centred, interactive or accessible computer vision.

2012/08/29: Abstracts Requested
2012/09/05: Paper Submission
2012/10/24: Acceptance notification
2012/11/21: Camera-ready version due

WORV 2013

WoRV provides a distinctive opportunity for researchers in the robotics and automation community to closely and actively interact and exchange ideas with a large number of computer vision researchers. The workshop aims to share research findings and issues in both frontiers through vibrant discussions with speakers from both disciplines, and address the current state of the art and future directions with lively panel discussions.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. All accepted papers will be published electronically on IEEE Xplore. Extended versions of selected papers will be published in a Springer book after the meeting.

Paper Submission: 8/15/2012
Notification: 10/21/2012
Camera-ready: 11/30/2012

The IEEE Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition is the premier international forum for research in image and video-based face, gesture, and body movement recognition. Its broad scope includes: advances in fundamental computer vision, pattern recognition, computer graphics; machine learning techniques relevant to face, gesture and body motion; new algorithms and applications. The program will consist of single-track oral presentations and poster sessions. Submissions will be rigorously reviewed and should clearly make the case for a documented improvement over the existing state of the art. FG 2013 will be held in Shanghai, China.

Paper submissions due: September 15, 2012
