[visionlist] [CFP] CVPR 2021 Workshop on Event-based Vision - Call for papers and contributions

Thu Jan 28 03:55:45 -04 2021

 Full day workshop at CVPR 2021.

Website: https://tub-rip.github.io/eventvision2021/

This workshop is dedicated to event-based cameras, smart cameras, and
algorithms processing data from these sensors. Event-based cameras are
bio-inspired sensors with the key advantages of microsecond temporal
resolution, low latency, very high dynamic range, and low power
Because of these advantages, event-based cameras open frontiers that
are unthinkable with standard frame-based cameras (which have been
the main sensing technology of the past 60 years). These revolutionary
enable the design of a new class of algorithms to track a baseball in the
build a flying robot with the agility of a fly, and perform structure from
in challenging lighting conditions and at remarkable speeds. These sensors
became commercially available in 2008 and are slowly being adopted in
computer vision and robotics. In recent years they have received attention
from large companies, e.g. the event-sensor company Prophesee collaborated
with Intel and Bosch on a high spatial resolution sensor, Samsung announced
mass production of a sensor to be used on hand-held devices, and they
have been used in various applications on neuromorphic chips such as
IBM’s TrueNorth and Intel’s Loihi. The workshop also considers novel vision
such as pixel processor arrays (PPAs), that perform massively parallel
near the image plane. Because early vision computations are carried out
the resulting systems have high speed and low-power consumption, enabling
new embedded vision applications in areas such as robotics, AR/VR,
gaming, surveillance, etc. This workshop will cover the sensing hardware,
as well as the processing and learning methods needed to take advantage
of the above-mentioned novel cameras.

Courtesy Presentations
We also invite courtesy presentations (short talks) of related papers that
are accepted at CVPR main conference or at other conferences. These
presentations provide visibility to your work and help to build a community
around the topics of the workshop. Please contact the organizers to make
arrangements to showcase your work at the workshop.

Important Dates
Paper submission deadline: March 27, 2021.
Submission website: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/EVENTVISION2021
Demo abstract submission: March 27, 2021
Notification to the authors: April 10, 2021
Camera-ready paper: April 15, 2021 (Exact date will be announced, as per
CVPR website)
Workshop day: June, 2021. TBA. Full day & virtual workshop.

Paper/Demo Submission
Research papers and demos are solicited in, but not limited to, the topics
listed above. Paper submissions must adhere to the CVPR 2021 paper
submission style, format and length restrictions. See the author guidelines
and template provided by the CVPR 2021 main conference. See also the policy
of Dual/Double Submissions of concurrently-reviewed conferences, such as
ICCV. Authors may want to limit the submission to four pages (excluding
references) if that is their case.

A double blind peer-review process of the submissions received is carried
out via CMT. Accepted papers will be published open access through the
Computer Vision Foundation (CVF) (see examples from CVPR Workshop 2019).
For the accepted papers we request that the authors write a paragraph about
ethical considerations and impact of their work.
