CALL FOR PAPERS

************************

The ICCV 2017 workshop entitled Computer Vision for Audio-Visual Media
(CVAVM) is dedicated to the role of computer vision for audio-visual media.
Audio-visual data is readily available since it is simple to acquire and
the great majority of videos today contain an audio track. Audio-visual
media are ubiquitous in our daily life: from movies to TV programs to music
videos to YouTube clips, to cite just a few. Moreover audio-visual media
exist on various platforms: TVs, movie theaters, tablets and smartphones.
Audio-visual media are also applied in many casual and professional
contexts and applications such as entertainment, machine learning,
biomedical, games, education, movie special effects, among many others.



Our workshop invites paper submissions on any applications and algorithms
that combine visual and audio information. The first major thrust is how
the combination of audio and visual information can simplify or improve
“traditional” computer vision applications, in particular (but not limited
to) action recognition, video segmentation and 3D reconstruction. The
second major thrust is the exploration of emerging, novel and
unconventional applications of audio-visual media, for example movie
trailer generation, video editing, and video-to-music alignment. See the
list of topics below.



People from the computer vision, machine learning, audio processing and
multimedia communities are welcome to submit papers and attend the
workshop. It is a wonderful and exciting opportunity to foster the
collaboration between the research communities.



Topics include (but are not limited to):

- multi-modal learning and deep learning

- automatic video captioning

- joint audio-visual processing

- 3D reconstruction and tracking

- scene/action recognition, and video classification

- video segmentation and saliency

- speaker identification

- speech recognition in videos

- automatic captioning

- virtual/augmented reality (VR/AR) and tele-presence

- human-computer interaction (HCI)

- automatic generation of videos

- trailer generation

- video and movie manipulation

- video synchronization

- image sonification

- video-to-music alignment

- joint audio-video retargeting

SUBMISSION

****************

The paper submission is similar to the ICCV main conference. Papers are
limited to 8 pages (excluding references), including figures and tables.
The reviewing will be double-blind, and each submission will be reviewed by
at least two reviewers. All the accepted papers will be published in the
ICCV workshop proceedings.
