EPIC at CVPR2019 - Call for Extended Abstracts

This is the final call for abstracts on published and ongoing work, to be submitted to the fourth edition of the International Workshop on Egocentric Perception Interaction and Computing (EPIC) at CVPR2019:

Submission Extended Abstracts: April 5th, 2019
Notification of Acceptance: April 25th, 2019
Camera-Ready Paper Due: June 15th, 2019
Workshop: Monday June 17 (Full Day), Long Beach, CA
Aims and Scope
This EPIC at X series of workshops aims to bring together the various communities that are relevant to egocentric perception including Computer Vision, Multimedia, HCI and the Visual Sciences and the series is held alongside the major conferences in these fields. This follows three previous successful workshops: EPIC at ECCV2016, EPIC at ICCV2017 and EPIC at ECCV2018.

EPIC at CVPR2019 will accept Extended Abstracts for ongoing or already published work, for presentation at the workshop. Both research and application works related to Egocentric Perception, Interaction and Computing are encouraged, including those that can be demonstrated or are in the prototype stages.

Egocentric perception introduces a series of challenging questions for computer vision as motion, real-time responsiveness, and generally uncontrolled interactions in the wild are more frequently required or encountered. Questions such as what to interpret as well as what to ignore, how to efficiently represent egocentric actions, and how captured information can be turned into useful data for guidance or log summaries become central.

Submissions are expected to deal with human-centric perception including, but not limited to:
- Egocentric vision for human action analysis
- Egocentric vision for object/event recognition
- Egocentric vision for summarization
- Egocentric vision for social interaction and human behavior understanding
- Egocentric vision for anticipating human behavior
- Egocentric vision for children and education
- Egocentric vision for health
- Head-mounted eye tracking and gaze estimation
- Computational visual behavior analysis
- Attention modelling and next fixation prediction
- Eye-based human-computer interaction
- Human and wearable devices interaction
- Symbiotic human-machine vision systems
- Affective computing with respect to wearable devices
- Eyewear devices for egocentric perception and computation
- Eyewear devices for acquisition and visualization
- Interactive AR/VR and Egocentric perception
- Egocentric vision in human and computer
- Daily life and activity monitoring
- Augmented human performance
- Benchmarking and quantitative evaluation with human subject experiments
