The last decade has witnessed the significant impact of Computer
Vision and Robotics on real-world products.

The traditional Computer Vision problems such as tracking, 3D
reconstruction, detection, recognition, odometry, navigation, and
ultimately, are now solved with significantly higher accuracy using
Machine Learning.

However, most of these results have focused on constrained application
scenarios that do not involve the integration of feedback from the
user. Since these applications do not consider the user's intentions
and goals, they tend to be of limited use when it is necessary to
provide assistance to humans.

With the pervasive successes of Computer Vision and Robotics and the
advent of industry 4.0, it has become paramount to design systems that
can truly assist humans and augment their abilities to tackle both
physical and intellectual tasks. We broadly refer to such systems as
"assistive technologies". Examples of these technologies include
approaches to assist visually impaired people to navigate and perceive
the world, wearable devices which make use of artificial intelligence,
mixed and augmented reality to improve perception and bring
computation directly to the user, and systems designed to aid
industrial processes and improve the safety of workers. These
technologies need to consider an operational paradigm in which the
user is central and can both influence and be influenced by the
system. Despite some examples of this approach exist (e.g., OrCam,
HoloLens), implementing applications according to this
"human-in-the-loop" scenario still requires a lot of effort to reach
an adequate level of reliability and introduces challenging satellite
issues related to usability, privacy, and acceptability.

The main scope of ACVR 2022 is to bring together researchers from the
diverse fields of engineering, computer science, social and biomedical
sciences who work in the context of technologies involving Computer
Vision and Robotics related to real-time continuous assistance and
support of humans while performing any task.

All submissions will be handled electronically via the conference's
CMT Website: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/ACVR2022

The format for paper submission is the same as the ECCV 2022 main

Please refer to ECCV 2022 author guidelines

See the instructions and guidelines at the following page:

ACVR reviewing will be double blind; in that authors will not know the
names of the area reviewers of their papers, and area reviewers will
not know the names of the authors. Each submitted paper will be
revised by three experts.

The paper length should match that intended for final
publication. Papers are limited to 8 pages (excluding references),
including figures and tables. Additional pages must contain only cited
references. While there is no limit to the number of references,
reviewers are instructed to check for pertinence. Citation of any of
the co-authors' published work must be done in the third
person. Reference to unpublished work can be made by anonymizing it,
including it as supplementary material, and referencing it as

Authors may optionally submit additional material that could not be
included in the main paper due to constraints of format (e.g., a
video), space (e.g., a proof of a theorem or an extra figure or table)
or anonymity.

Papers that are not blind, or do not use the template, or have more
than 8 pages (excluding references) will be rejected without review.



All accepted papers will appear in the ECCV workshops proceedings.
