================================================================

IMPORTANT DATES
===============
March 18, 2014: Paper submission deadline
April 8, 2014: Notification of acceptance
June 5, 2014 (full day): Workshop date


ORGANIZERS
==========
• Luis Puig, University of Pennsylvania, USA
• Davide Scaramuzza, University of Zürich, Switzerland
• Miguel Lourenço, University of Coimbra, Portugal



MOTIVATION
==========
In the last decade, omnidirectional sensors have been a key technology 
in the development of visual perception. The introduction of affordable 
omnidirectional sensors, such as fisheye cameras, has contributed to the 
advancement of the use of these vision systems in practical 
applications, for example in the automotive industry and in combination 
with UAVs. More recently, new types of non-conventional cameras, such as 
lenslet cameras, which are a combination of multiple micro lens with 
multiple sensors in a sensor array, imitating a fly's eye; light field 
cameras, also known as plenoptic cameras from which depth information 
can be extracted by analyzing the image parts that are not in focus; and 
dynamic vision sensors, which process only the local pixel-level changes 
caused by movement in the scene, instead of acquiring entire images, 
have appeared. These type of sensors present interesting properties that 
should be explored by the robotics and computer vision communities.


GOAL
====
The goal of this workshop is to bring together state-of-the-art research 
in the area of light-field cameras, event-based vision, camera networks 
and omnidirectional vision.

The workshop will feature invited talks from recognized experts in the 
field and peer-reviewed paper presentations.
