Aims and Scope

This EPIC@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 is
planned to be held on the major conferences in these
fields. EPIC@ECCV2018 will accept Full Papers for novel work, and
Extended Abstracts for ongoing or already published work. 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:

** Eyewear devices for egocentric perception and computation
** Egocentric vision for object/event recognition
** Egocentric vision for summarization
** Egocentric vision for social interaction and human behavior understanding
** Computational visual behaviour analysis
** Head-mounted eye tracking and gaze estimation
** Attention modelling and next fixation prediction
** Interactive AR/VR and Egocentric perception
** Augmented human performance
** Interactive AR/VR and Egocentric perception
