CFP: Workshop on Computer Vision Applications for the Visually Impaired (CVAVI 08)

Workshop on Computer Vision Applications for the Visually Impaired 
(CVAVI 08)
Marseille, France, Oct. 18, 2008
A Satellite Workshop of ECCV 2008

Workshop Chairs:
James Coughlan, Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute
Roberto Manduchi, UC Santa Cruz


Brief description:

A growing number of computer vision researchers are becoming interested 
in applications for persons with visual impairments (VI), including low 
vision and blindness. This workshop aims to bring together computer 
vision researchers and experts in VI rehabilitation and assistive 
technology. Attendance by VI experts outside the computer vision 
community will also be encouraged. By addressing the context in which 
assistive technology is used and designed, the workshop seeks to help 
researchers identify fruitful areas of overlap between the most pressing 
needs of the VI population and the capabilities of computer vision 
technology.  A general discussion session at the end of the workshop 
will facilitate the exchange of ideas between computer vision 
researchers and VI experts.
