    Call for Paper

    Computer vision technology is playing an increasingly important role in Spatial User Interaction. In this workshop, we aim to gather relevant researchers to discuss recent progress in how computer vision could be applied to spatial user interaction, and also to summarize potential directions for future research.

    We invite submissions of abstracts, research papers and position papers: 2-10 pages in SUI conference paper format. We welcome contributions related (but not limited) to the following aspects:

    * Novel methods for Vision-based Intelligent Human-Object Interaction

    Intelligent human-object interaction (HOI) relies on the identification of human and object interaction. For example, in the field of automatic driving, the model needs to analyze the relationship between humans and objects in the scene (such as people getting on and off the car). Identifying these scenes can not only help the automatic driving system to judge the state of humans and objects in the current environment but also help the system to predict the upcoming situation. Vision based HOI detection can help computers understand more complex human activities and obtain more in-depth scene semantic knowledge that can be applied to various scenes in daily life. Nowadays, with the increasing maturity of information technology, different artificial intelligence products have penetrated our daily life, and the application of HOI detection is also pervasive, such as in the field of autonomous driving mentioned above. However, today's HOI detection is not as mature as object detection, and still has a lot of room for improvement, especially in spatial user interaction. This workshop aims to bring more people to discuss and explore HOI detection questions.

    * Novel eye control methods for Spatial User Interaction

    The advances in spatial user interaction call for novel methods to achieve better user experience. For example, eye control with gaze estimation is a viable method for spatial user interaction, especially when traditional mouse and finger operations are not adequate for interaction requirements. While the application of eye control has been extensively studied in the HCI field, the potential of eye control with gaze estimation for spatial user interaction is still unexplored. In this workshop, we will discuss novel methods (such as eye control with gaze estimation) in spatial user interaction in terms of their pros and cons.

    * Computer Vision-based VR/AR Interaction

    Computer vision drives innovation with new customer experiences, and new ways of interacting with AR/VR. A typical application is using computer vision to provide optimal route recommendation with AR glasses. The question of how computer vision can empower VR/AR interaction has attracted much attention recently. Computer vision based human-object interaction (HOI) and eye control with gaze estimation (ECGE) would be promising technology to develop the new generation VR/AR interface. This workshop will look at this question and cover the important topics in computer vision-based VR/AR interaction, such as HOI and ECGE.
