Following on the success of EPIC@ECCV last year, we are thrilled to invite participants and contributors to the second edition of the International Workshop on Egocentric Perception, Interaction, and Computing (EPIC) at ICCV 2017: <>

Full Paper Submission: June 15th, 2017 (OR 5th Aug if not accepted into main ICCV)
Submission of Extended Abstracts: September 12th, 2017

Notification of Acceptance: July 31th, 2017

Camera-Ready Paper Due: August 25th, 2017

Workshop: October 29th, 2017

Aims and Scope

Egocentric camera devices are becoming increasingly popular, both as research prototypes and off-the-shelf products. They can acquire images, videos and can collect multimodal data such as gaze information, GPS position, IMU data, etc. When connected with head-mounted displays, they can also provide new forms of interaction and visualization. Based on this rapid progress, we believe we are only at the beginning and these technologies and their application can have a great impact on our life.
In fact, these egocentric camera devices will be able to automatically understand what the wearer is doing, acting on, manipulating, and where his or her attention is going. On the scientific side, for example, scientists are already taking advantage of these kinds of wearable cameras by monitoring and analyzing visual experiences of infants' early life. This work has already resulted in important findings on how young children actively explore the world to create experiences and collect visual data to facilitate their development and early learning of words and visual objects

Egocentric perception introduces a series of challenging questions for computer vision since motion, real-time responsiveness and generally uncontrolled interactions in the wild are more frequently required or encountered. Questions such as what to interpret as well as what to ignore, how to efficiently represent egocentric actions, and how captured information can be turned into useful data for guidance or log summaries become central.

This new EPIC@X series of workshops aims to bring together the various communities that are relevant to egocentric perception including Computer Vision, Multimedia, HCI and the Visual Sciences and is planned to be held on the major conferences in these fields.	EPIC@ICCV will accept Full Papers for novel work, and Extended Abstracts for ongoing or already published work. Both research and application works related to Egocentric Perception, Interaction and Computing are encouraged, including those that can be demonstrated or are in the prototype stages.

Submissions are expected to deal with human-centric perception including, but not limited to:

Eyewear devices for egocentric perception and computation
Eyewear devices for acquisition and visualization
Egocentric vision for object/event recognition
Egocentric vision for summarization
Egocentric vision for social interaction and human behavior understanding
Egocentric vision for children and education
Egocentric vision for health
Head-mounted eye tracking and gaze estimation
Computational visual behaviour analysis
Attention modelling and next fixation prediction
Eye-based human-computer interaction
Human and wearable devices interaction
Symbiotic human-machine vision systems
Affective computing with respect to wearable devices
Interactive AR/VR and Egocentric perception
Augmented human performance
Interactive AR/VR and Egocentric perception
Eye-based daily life and activity monitoring
Benchmarking and quantitative evaluation with human subject experiments
