Designing systems with humans in the loop to assist them is an
exciting research area, with the potential to impact society at
large. This requires a very different set of innovations, tools, and
evaluation criteria than classic methods involved in fully autonomous
tasks. Implementing such kinds of systems still requires a lot of
effort to reach an adequate level of reliability and introduces
challenging satellite issues related to usability, privacy, and
acceptability. Besides, multidisciplinary competencies are required to
adapt computer vision and robotics techniques and algorithms to
industrial, social, medical, and economic constraints. The workshop
aims to fill the reality gap in computer vision and robotics for
assistive technology. The goal is to provide, year by year, a view of
how recent findings in computer vision and robotics are changing
assistive technologies, with emphasis on the related additional issues
and how they have been addressed by the researchers working in the
different research areas involved. We solicit contributed papers
presenting assistive systems and describing how the related issues
have been addressed. Submissions describing the outcome of research
projects on the topics of the workshop are also welcome. We encourage
the presentation of new data benchmarks for the workshop-related

Finally, the workshop will give a unique opportunity to students, who
are close to finishing or who have recently been awarded their
doctorate, to discuss their research and interact with experienced
researchers in computer vision and robotics (Doctoral Consortium).

Contributions are solicited in, but not limited to, the following topic areas:

Symbiotic Human-Machine Systems;
Computer Vision to aid Industrial Processes;
Augmented and Mixed Reality;
Computer Vision to Improve the Safety of Workers;
Human-Robot Interaction;
Home Healthcare;
Technology for Cognition;
Automatic Emotional Hearing and Understanding;
Activity Monitoring Systems;
Manipulation Aids;
Smart Environments;
Safety and Security;
Ambient Assistive Living;
Privacy-preserving systems;
Robot assistants;
Quality of Life Technologies;
Navigation Systems;
Mobile and Wearable Systems;
Applications for the Visually Impaired;
Sign language recognition and applications for the hearing impaired; Applications for the Ageing Society;
Personalized Monitoring;
Egocentric and First-Person Vision;
Applications to improve the health and well-being of children and elderly; Autonomous Driving;
Driver Assistance Systems;
Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) for Assistive Systems;
Multi-modal Human-Centered Systems.

All submissions will be handled electronically via the conference’s
CMT Website:

The format for paper submission is the same as the ECCV 2024 main
conference. Please refer to ECCV 2024 submission policies

See the instructions and guidelines on the following page:


ACVR2024 paper reviewing will be double-blind; 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 14 pages, including figures and tables, in the
LNCS style of Springer.

Additional pages containing only cited references are allowed.

Please download the ECCV 2024 Author Kit for detailed formatting
instructions. Note also that the template has changed since ECCV
2022. Authors must thus use this new template instead of templates
from older conferences.

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 Anonymous.

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, do not use the template, or have more than
14 pages (excluding references) will be rejected without review.


Authors may also submit abstracts describing published or ongoing
works. The abstract should follow the same format as contributed
papers and should be at least 2 pages and at most 4 pages long,
including references. Authors of accepted abstracts will be given the
possibility to present their work during the workshop. The abstract
will not be published in the workshop proceedings. The accepted
abstracts will be published online on the workshop website upon
consensus agreement provided by the authors.


The doctoral consortium is intended to be a discussion forum for PhD
students and recent PhD graduates who wish to present, discuss, and
receive feedback on their research activity. Eligible applicants are
researchers who were awarded their PhD at most a year before the
submission deadline, PhD candidates and PhD students who expected to
graduate within two years. Applicants should submit a document
describing their research activity at most 4 pages long (excluding
references). The document will not be published in the workshop
proceedings, and it may contain ongoing work and already published
material. Eligible submissions will be selected by the workshop
organizers and given the possibility to present and discuss their work
during the workshop event in Paris. We expect submissions to cover
aspects relevant to the aims and topics of the workshop. The submitted
documents should follow the same format as the contributed papers.

The accepted documents will be published online on the workshop
website upon consensus agreement provided by the authors.




All accepted contributed papers will appear in the ECCV2024 workshops

Authors may be invited to submit an extended version (at least 40%
more than the seminar versions) of their work to a special issue
(currently still in the planning stage) in a recognized journal in the
field of computer vision or robotic research.
