Today, computer vision technique provides methodology to assist a long-distance explorer project using visual sensing system such as mars rover project. Modern cars drive with assistance of various sensor data. In this workshop, we focus to exchange new ideas in applications of computer vision theory to vehicle technology. In computer vision vehicle technology, tracking, reconstruction, prediction are important ideas. Furthermore, real-time and on-line algorithms for these problems are required. Successful authors are invited to submit papers on applications for computer vision techniques to vehicle technology. The expected topics to be addressed in the workshop include, but are not limited.

  • Computer vision methods for vehicle-mounted camera system and exploration purposes
  • Sensor fusion and quality control of static and dynamic camera systems
  • Real-time, on-line, and on-board computer vision algorithms and systems
  • Pattern recognition and cognitive sciences for autonomous navigation and exploration
  • Simulation and evaluation systems for navigation and exploration

Submission Policy

The review process is double blind as to fit with the ACCV double submission policy. Double submission is allowed with ACCV main conference only. If your paper is submitted to ACCV main conference, please add your paper ID of the ACCV main conference. If a paper is accepted to ACCV main conference, the paper cannot be published both at the ACCV and the workshop. If reviews from the ACCV submission exist, these should be taken into account in the review process of the workshop.

Submission Style

PDF in LNCS 10 pages. Final camera ready due of the accepted papers is 1st of October (midnight of GMT). If the final paper would not be uploaded until 1st of October (midnight of GMT), the paper would not be contained in the final post-workshop proceeding as the workshop volume of ACCV from Springer-Verlag.
