4th Workshop on Egocentric (First-Person) Vision

Keynote Speakers

Call for Participants

By taking advantage of the first-person point-of-view paradigm, there have been recent advances in areas such as visual grasp analysis,personalized video summarization, understanding concepts of social saliency, activity analysis with inside-out cameras (a camera to capture eye gaze and an outward-looking camera), recognizing human interactions and modeling focus of attention. However, in many ways we are as a community only beginning to understand the full potential (and limitations) of the first-person paradigm.

Presenter Instructions

Here are the instructions for preparation of the presentation.

  • Accepted papers / abstracts will be presented as spotlight or poster presentation
  • Each spotlight presenter will have a 2.5 minute oral presentation (with 20 seconds trasition time) to highlight the main contributions and novelties of their paper
  • Spotlight presenters have to prepare their own laptops for the presentation
  • Two poster sessions are allocated (morning / afternoon), with each session 45 minutes
  • The maximum poster size is 8'*4'
