Workshop on Computer Vision Applications for the Visually Impaired
(CVAVI 08)
Marseille, France, Oct. 18, 2008
A Satellite Workshop of ECCV 2008

Workshop Chairs:
James Coughlan, Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute
Roberto Manduchi, UC Santa Cruz


Brief description:

A growing number of computer vision researchers are becoming interested
in applications for persons with visual impairments (VI), including low
vision and blindness. This workshop aims to bring together computer
vision researchers and experts in VI rehabilitation and assistive
technology. Attendance by VI experts outside the computer vision
community will also be encouraged. By addressing the context in which
assistive technology is used and designed, the workshop seeks to help
researchers identify fruitful areas of overlap between the most pressing
needs of the VI population and the capabilities of computer vision
technology.  A general discussion session at the end of the workshop
will facilitate the exchange of ideas between computer vision
researchers and VI experts.

Deadline for paper submissions: July 1, 2008.
