International Cognitive Vision Workshop – ICVW 2007

Update: Invited talk to be given by Prof. Dr. James Crowley!

Update: Tentative Schedule available!

Update: Deadline for paper submissions extended!

Description of the workshop

Cognitive vision is a research area calling for interdisciplinary research. Our workshop on cognitive vision shall continue the cross-fertilization between different research communities, research projects, and research groups. The specific objectives are:

  • Document the progress of the relatively young field of Cognitive Vision and Cognitive Vision Systems
  • Gather the researchers already working and those interested in this field and offering them a platform to discuss the results of the different European cognitive vision projects, other international projects, and further activities in this area
  • Increase the global visibility of Cognitive Vision

The workshop programme is based on one or two invited speakers, about 10-12 oral presentations with ample room for discussion during presentation session, posters depending on the quality of submissions, and a wrap-up discussion. Following the very successful model set in other workshop series, the chairs will incentivate and facilitate interaction among participants, asking also for the presentations to include position statements on a number of key questions to be identified based on accepted papers, to clearly expose research challenges, and invite comments regarding negative results (rather than reporting shrink-wrapped “success stories”).

General topics

Papers should indicate their scientific contribution to the field of Cognitive Vision. We cordially invite you to submit papers on all aspects of Cognitive Vision and Cognitive Vision systems including, but not limited to

  • Theory of Cognitive Vision
  • Computational models of biological vision systems and their relation to Cognitive Vision
  • Representations suited to cover Cognitive Vision requirements of learning, knowledge acquisition and contextual control
  • Methods for continuous learning and learning from a minimum number of exemplars
  • Formalisation of task requirements, contextual dependencies and spatio-temporal reasoning to enable active control of processes for reliable interpretation
  • Software frameworks and architectures to accommodate all functionalities required in a multi-tasking Cognitive Vision system
  • Applications, such as understanding situations involving objects and humans and their relations and to be aware of the environment and its objects and functions.

Tentative Schedule
