Workshop on User-Centred Computer Vision 2014
Gregor Miller , General Chair
Workshop on User-Centred Computer Vision 2014 The 2nd Workshop on User-Centred Computer Vision (UCCV'14) will be held as part of the Asian Conference on Computer Vision in Singapore in November 2014. UCCV is a one day workshop intended to provide a forum to discuss the creation of intuitive, interactive and accessible computer vision technologies.

The majority of researchers in computer vision focus on advancing the state-of-the-art in algorithms and methods; there is very little focus on how the state-of-the-art can be usefully presented to the majority of people. Research is required to provide new technology to address the shortcomings in the usability of computer vision.

The workshop will bring together researchers from academia and industry in the fields of computer vision and human-computer interaction to discuss the state-of-the-art in HCI for Vision. We invite the submission of original, high quality research papers on user-centred, interactive or accessible computer vision. Areas of interest include (but not limited to):
  • Vision systems/frameworks designed for use by non-experts
  • Visual or Integrated Development Environments for vision system design
  • High-level abstractions of vision algorithms
  • Algorithm/Task/User level API design
  • Detection/tracking/recognition of a physical person as input to an interactive system
  • Interpretation of user input such as descriptions, sketches, images or video
  • Automatic or interactive algorithm selection
  • Automatic or interactive task selection
  • Automatic or interactive parameter tuning for vision algorithms
  • Using computer vision to exploit meaningful user interaction
  • Case studies on user-centred computer vision
  • Interactive/supervised correction of weaknesses in the current state-of-the-art in computer vision
  • Evaluation of vision interfaces (e.g. through user studies)
