The 1st IEEE Workshop on User-Centred Computer Vision (UCCV)

We are pleased to announce the 1st Workshop on User-Centred Computer Vision (UCCV 2013), to be held as part of the IEEE Winter Vision Meetings in Clearwater Beach, Tampa, Florida, U.S.A. from 16th to 18th January 2013. UCCV is a one day workshop on 16th January 2013 intended to provide a forum to discuss the creation of intuitive, interactive and accessible computer vision technologies.

2012/09/21: Paper Submission (Extended!)
2012/11/08: Acceptance notification
2012/12/01: Camera-ready version due


General chair: Gregor Miller (University of British Columbia)
Programme chairs: Daesik Jang (Kunsan National University), Kenji Mase (Nagoya University)


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 user-friendly and developer-friendly computer 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):


The format of submissions should follow that of WACV. The workshop will have sessions for oral and poster presentations. The WPOV proceedings will be published electronically and indexed in IEEExplore.
