Interactive Computer Vision (ICV 2007)
In conjunction with ICCV 2007
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, October 2007

IMPORTANT DATES

June    27, 2007 - Paper submission
August   3, 2007 - Notification
August  14, 2007 - Camera-ready paper
October 15, 2007 - Workshop

OVERVIEW

Many computer vision applications still require high-level 
visual knowledge and expertise that can currently be provided 
only by human input. Indeed, certain task-specific applications, 
such as image and video manipulation and editing, will continue 
to require human guidance due to the essential role of the user 
in the creative process and in identifying which image or video 
components are of interest. Consequently, in addition to pursuing 
fully autonomous methods, there has also been significant interest 
in and development of useful interactive computer vision tools 
that effectively utilize user input to accomplish difficult vision 
tasks.

CALL FOR PAPERS

This workshop seeks to present and highlight current computer 
vision techniques that involve human interaction as an integral 
part of the vision algorithm. The implication of interactive 
computer vision is that the vision process accepts, and often 
requires, human guidance to accomplish the task and that the 
vision algorithm supplies feedback to user input in a timely 
(i.e., interactive) manner. Further, this workshop encourages work 
where human input is used not only to initialize (or re-initialize) 
the vision algorithm, but also to guide the algorithm while in 
process and/or to select among several possible results. This 
workshop also encourages submissions that evaluate and compare 
interactive vision systems. Papers are solicited in all areas 
related to interactive (human-assisted) computer vision, including 
but not limited to:

   * Image and video editing and manipulation:
       - Object selection, transfer, or cloning
       - Matting
       - Recolorization
       - Relighting
       - Inpainting
       - Recognition-based (or object sensitive) editing or manipulation
       - Exaggeration (motion, object, etc.)
   * Segmentation
   * Geometric (3-D or 2 1/2-D) reconstruction
   * Material editing, manipulation, or transfer
   * Photo and video summarization, understanding, and browsing
       - Recognizing people in large photo/video collections
       - User-friendly organization and browsing of large collections
   * Image retrieval
   * Tracking
       - Surveillance and security
       - Vision assisted driving
   * Medical image/volume segmentation and analysis
   * Qualitative and quantitative comparison and evaluation of interactive systems
