Winter Vision Meetings

Computer Vision has become increasingly important in real world systems for
commercial, industrial and military applications. Computer Vision related
technologies have started migrating from academic institutions to industrial
laboratories, and onward into deployable systems. The goal of this workshop is
to bring together an international cadre of academic, industrial, and government
researchers, and companies applying vision techniques.

Topics include (but are not limited to)

  • Industrial Inspection/Manufacturing
  • Face Detection
  • Face Recognition
  • Fingerprints
  • Biometrics Fusion
  • Road/Traffic Analysis
  • 3D modeling
  • Image-based Rendering for Entertainment
  • Motion/Stereo processing/segmentation
  • Real-time Tracking
  • Graphics Recognition/Engineering Drawings
  • Classification/Recognition
  • Human Motion Analysis/Capture
  • Document Analysis
  • Security/Surveillance
  • Gesture/Hand Recognition
  • Medical Analysis
  • Augmented Reality
  • Performance Evaluation (of any vision application)
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Scientific Imaging Applications
  • Visual Navigation and Station Keeping
  • Robotics Applications
  • Image/Video Indexing and Retrieval
  • Vision for Entertainment
  • Perception Aids for the Handicapped
  • Underwater Industrial Applications

The workshop will have 6-page papers, which may be presented as either oral and poster presentations (extra pages will be $100 a page, up to an 8-page maximum). The workshop, in conjunction with the rest of the Winter Vision Meetings, will also have a demonstration session. The WACV proceedings will be published electronically on a conference CD-ROM and on IEEExplore.

WACV will also include a "Development" abstract track where companies can submit a 1-2 page abstract of their vision-related product or services. These will be reviewed by a subset of the program committee but not held to the same scientific/research standards of a full paper. Rather they are meant to help introduce the community to the product or application space. Abstracts may be selected for either oral or poster presentation. Abstracts (from either demos or products) will be included in the electronic proceedings CD-ROM.
