Call for papers: Applications of Egocentric Vision Workshop (EgoApp)

12th September, 2019 (Afternoon). In conjunction with 

BMVC 2019


EgoApp aims to bring together diverse communities related to
egocentric vision, such as computer science or social science to
discuss the current and next generation of related technologies. To
this end, both research and industry communities are invited to submit
their recent outcomes in the format of a paper or a position paper.

Submissions are expected to deal with egocentric vision including, 
but not limited to:

**         Wearable technologies for egocentric vision acquisition, computation, and perception
**         Assistive technologies for personalized monitoring
**         Object detection and recognition from egocentric vision
**         Person identification in egocentric videos
**         Activity recognition in egocentric vision
**         Visual lifelogging and summarization of egocentric videos
**         Scene understanding from egocentric vision
**         Human computer/robot interaction using egocentric vision
**         Social signal analysis and behaviour modelling in egocentric vision
**         Understanding of group dynamics in egocentric vision
**         Attention, fixation, and saliency modelling and prediction
**         Perception in virtual and augmented reality
**         Ethics and social issues in egocentric vision

Papers will be limited up to 9 pages excluding references according to
the BMVC format. All papers will be reviewed by at least two reviewers
with double blind policy. Papers will be selected based on relevance,
significance and novelty of results, technical merit, and clarity of
presentation. Paper submission and registration are handled via
CMT. BMVC 2019 organisers will collect workshop registrations, provide
facilities, and distribute electronic copies of the workshop
