CALL FOR PAPERS
In the last decades, there has been a tremendous increase in demand for assistive technologies useful to overcome functional limitations of individuals. Novel tools have been successfully commercialised bringing the Computer Vision and Robotics research from theory to applications and then to market. The rapid progress in the development of integrated micro-mechatronic and computer vision has further boosted this process. The interest in this applied field is increasing due to the possibility to exploit advanced technologies coming from the results of traditional problems in Computer Vision (such as face analysis, tracking, detection and recognition, human behaviour analysis). However, many problems remain open especially as regards environment perception and interaction of these technological tools with people. To address the open challenges, it is becoming increasingly common the use of deep learning approaches that have been exploited either to improve performance in the computer vision and robotics tasks, i.e. by inheriting the knowledge from the theoretic and methodological literature, or to make significant change to the assistive framework itself. In addition to deep learning, new learning paradigms (e.g., Generative Adversarial Networks) are radically changing this strategic research sector.
The main scope of ACVR 2019 is then to bring together researchers from the diverse fields of engineering, computer science, social and bio-medical science who investigate in the context of Computer Vision and Robotics in order to discuss the current and next generation of Assistive Technologies. The researchers will present their latest progress and discuss novel ideas in the field. Besides the technologies used, emphasis will be given to the precise problem definition, the available benchmark databases, the need of evaluation protocols and procedures in the context of Assistive Technologies.
Research papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas topics:
Augmentative and Alternative Communication
Human - Robot Interaction
Technology for Cognition
Automatic Emotional Hearing and Understanding
Activity Monitoring Systems

SUBMISSION AND REVISION
All submissions will be handled electronically via the conference’s CMT Website: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/ACVR2019
The format for paper submission is the same as the ICCV 2019 main conference. Please refer to ICCV 2019 author guidelines available at http://iccv2019.thecvf.com/submission/main_conference/author_guidelines
Specific instructions and guidelines for the ACVR workshop will be available soon in the workshop website.
ACVR reviewing will be double-blind. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three reviewers for originality, significance, clarity, soundness, relevance and technical contents.
The paper length should match that intended for final publication.
Papers are limited to eight pages, including figures and tables, in the ICCV style. Additional pages containing only cited references are allowed.
Papers that are not properly anonymized, or do not use the template, or have more than eight pages (excluding references) will be rejected without review.
Authors may optionally submit additional material that was ready at the time of paper submission but could not be included due to constraints of format or space.
he authors should refer to the contents of the supplementary material appropriately in the paper. Reviewers will be encouraged to look at it, but are not obligated to do so.
Supplementary material may include videos, proofs, additional figures or tables, more detailed analysis of experiments presented in the paper.
All supplementary material must be self-contained and zipped into a single file.
Submission Deadline: June 15th, 2019
