ACVR2014 - Second Workshop on Assistive Computer Vision and Robotics

Assistive technologies provide a set of advanced tools that can improve the quality of life not only for disabled, patients and elderly but also for healthy people struggling with everyday actions. After a period of slow but steady scientific progress, this scientific area seems to be mature for new research and application breakthroughs. The rapid progress in the development of integrated micro-mechatronic and computer vision tools has boosted this process.

The goal of the workshop is then to give an overview of the state of the art of perception and interaction methodologies involved in this area with special attention to aspects related to computer vision and robotics. Call for paper:
