For robots to successfully interact with their environment and carry out
tasks, egocentric vision emerges as a natural solution in Robotics, mostly
for robots such as mobile ones. However, despite its theoretical and
practical implications,  egocentric perception rarely receives the
attention it deserves. Furthermore, there are different perspectives of
egocentric vision depending on which agent wears the visual sensors. In
particular, cameras can be attached to both robots and people, and this
view has also been often ignored, and the different communities (Robotics,
Visual lifelogging, etc.) often work separately and are mostly unaware of
one another. The workshop aims at overcoming this limited emphasis paid to
egocentric vision in the past in the field of Robotics by offering a deeper

We welcome submissions in topics such as:


   Visual SLAM and structure from motion

   Visual control, navigation and reinforcement learning.

   Egocentric vision in human-robot communication and interaction, from the
   robot and/or human perspectives

   Virtual, augmented and mixed reality in robotics

   Multi-sensory, multi-modal systems combining vision with other
   perceptual sources with some egocentric perspective

   Egocentric vision in mobile robots and UAVs.

   Egocentric vision for robot manipulation.

   Egocentric in wearable robotics and wearable computing in general

   Combining egocentric and exocentric vision in robotics

   Neuromorphic applications

   Novel visual sensors and integration in egocentric perspective: foveal
   sensing, event cameras, multi-camera arrangements, etc.
