    CALL FOR PAPERS AND EXTENDED ABSTRACTS

    ————————————————————–

    Development of RGB-D sensors (Kinect, Asus, Intel Creative, Leap Motion

    etc) and camera miniaturization (wearable cameras, smart phones,

    ubiquitous computing) have opened the door to a whole new range of

    technologies and applications which require detecting hands and

    recognizing hand poses in a variety of scenarios.

    Our program will feature several high-quality invited talks, oral and

    poster presentations, and a panel discussion to identify key research

    questions and highlight future research directions. We invite submissions

    of theoretical and applied papers in all areas covered by the workshop,

    including, but not limited to:

    - Hand detection

    - Hand pose and gesture recognition

    - 3D articulated hand tracking

    - Hand modelling and rendering

    - Grasping and object manipulation

    - Hand activity recognition

    - Gesture interfaces

    - Egocentric vision systems

    - Structured prediction

    - Applications of hand pose estimation in AR/VR

    - Applications of hand pose estimation in robotics and haptics

    - Driver hand activity analysis

    In the spirit of Chalearn “looking at people” for body pose estimation or

    Pascal VOC Challenge for object recognition, we organize a challenge

    associated with this workshop. We aim at comparing new and established

    methods for hand detection and pose estimation on a standard and varied

    data set covering multiple scenarios and settings. We released such

    dataset and encourage participants to use it for evaluation and to

    participate in the challenge.

    In addition to regular papers, we also invite extended abstracts of

    ongoing or published work, and invite authors of previous and ongoing work

    to submit empirical results to our challenge. Accepted extended abstracts will 

    be presented as a poster at the workshop. We receive your prior publications 

    or CVPR16 main conference papers on the relevant topics as extended abstracts.
