Workshop on Developer-Centred Computer Vision (DCCV 2012), in 
conjunction with ACCV 2012

Web site:

There has been a relatively recent surge in the number of developer 
interfaces to computer vision becoming available: OpenCV has become much 
more popular, Mathworks have released a Matlab Computer Vision Toolbox, 
visual interfaces such as Vision-on-Tap are online and working, and 
specific targets such as tracking (OpenTL) and GPU (Cuda, OpenVIDIA) 
have working implementations. Additionally, in the last six months 
Khronos (the not-for-profit industry consortium which creates and 
maintains open standards) has formed a working group to discuss the 
creation of a computer vision hardware abstraction layer (CV HAL).

Developing methods to make computer vision accessible poses many 
interesting HCI questions and will require novel approaches to the 
problems. This one day workshop will bring together researchers in the 
fields of HCI and Vision  to discuss the state-of-the-art and the 
direction of research. There will be peer-reviewed demos and papers, 
with three oral presentation sessions and a poster session. We invite 
the submission of original, high quality research papers and demos on 
accessible computer vision. Areas of interest include (but not limited to):

Higher-level abstractions of vision algorithms
Algorithm/Task/User level API design
Automatic/interactive algorithm selection based on human input
Automatic/interactive task selection based on human input
Interpretation of user input such as descriptions, sketches, images or 
Case-studies on developer-centred computer vision
Visual development environments for vision system construction
Evaluation of vision interfaces (e.g. through user studies)

Important Dates:

Paper submission: 31st August 2012
Notification of acceptance: 30th September 2012
Camera-ready papers: 10th October 2012
Workshop date: 5th or 6th November 2012

Workshop Organisers:

Gregor Miller, University of British Columbia
Sidney Fels, University of British Columbia


Submission will be through the CMT submission system, and the ACCV 
author kit should be used. The standards for submission are the same as 
for ACCV.
