Call for Papers:  The 15th IEEE Embedded Vision Workshop at CVPR 2019 
(Long Beach, CA, June 16/17 2019)


Main theme: Embedded Vision for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
UAVs with embedded and real-time vision processing capabilities have 
proven to be highly versatile autonomous robotic platforms in a variety 
of environments and for different tasks. The workshop aims at collecting 
and discussing next-generation approaches for online and onboard visual 
systems embedded on UAVs in order to elaborate a holistic picture of the 
state of the art in this field, and also to reveal remaining challenges 
and issues. The discussion of these topics will identify next steps in 
this research area for both young researchers as well as senior 
scientists. The invited speakers from academia will highlight past and 
current research and the invited speakers from industry will help 
closing the loop how research efforts are and will be perceived for 
industrial applications. Topics of interest include vision-based 
navigation, vision-based (multi-)sensor-fusion, online reconstruction, 
collaborative vision algorithms for navigation and environment 
perception, and related topics. This year, the Embedded Vision Workshop 
will host the Low-Power Image Recognition Challenge (LPIRC 2019,

efficient embedded computer vision algorithms for UAV applications” with 
“low-power technologies for image recognition” — both playing a major 
role for next-generation low-power, high efficiency aerial autonomy

Call for Papers (PDF file): 

EVW will have live demonstrations of embedded vision prototypes and 
solutions. This year, we plan dedicated poster and demonstration slots 
during which authors, engineers, and researchers can showcase their 
prototypes with real-time implementations of vision systems on embedded 
computing platforms for UAVs and other applications to a wide audience 
with good interaction opportunities. Demos related to UAVs are 
particularly encouraged, and we will make special efforts to meet the 
requirements of the demonstrators. Additionally, we invite abstracts, 
independent of the paper submissions, to present your demonstrations 
during the workshop.

Research papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the following 
topics and with relevance particularly to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles:

- New trends and challenges in embedded visual processing for UAV 
applications, including localization, navigation, and image-based perception
- Analysis of vision problems specific to embedded systems
- Analysis of embedded systems issues specific to computer vision
- Artificial intelligence hardware and software architectures for visual 
exploitation (for example deep learning, convolutional neural networks, 
and lightweight convolutional networks)
- Embedded vision for UAVs (industrial, mobile and consumer)
- Advanced assistance systems and autonomous navigation frameworks
- Augmented and Virtual Reality
- Large-scale computer vision problems including object recognition, 
scene analysis, industrial and medical applications
- New trends in programmable processors for vision and computational imaging
- Applications of and algorithms for embedded vision on:
   -      Massively parallel platforms such as GPUs (PC, embedded and 
   -      Programmable platforms such as DSPs and multicore SoCs
   -      Reconfigurable platforms such as FPGAs and SoCs with 
reconfigurable logic
   -      Swarms of mobile aerial platforms
   -      Vision-based client devices for the Internet of Things (IoT)
   -      Mixed reality on mobile devices
   -      Embedded vision for 3D reconstruction and (live) data streams
   -      Biologically-inspired vision and embedded systems
   -      Computer vision applications distributed between embedded 
devices and servers
   -      Educational methods for embedded vision
   -      Hardware enhancements (lens, imager, processor) that impact 
vision applications
   -      Software enhancements (OS, middleware, vision libraries, 
development tools) that impact embedded vision application
   -      Performance metrics for evaluating embedded systems
   -      Hybrid embedded systems combining vision and other sensor 

Special Journal Issue on Embedded Computer Vision
All of the previous Workshops on Embedded (Computer) Vision (ECVW and 
EVW) were held in conjunction with CVPR, with the exception of the 
fifth, which was held in conjunction with ICCV 2009. These events were 
very successful, and selected workshop papers have been published in 
several special issues of major journals (EURASIP Journal on Embedded 
Systems, CVIU and Springer monographs titled Embedded Computer Vision). 
This year, we also plan to organize a special issue for selected papers.
