WCPA 2022 – 1st International Workshop and Challenge on People Analysis ECCV 2022

MICC is co-organizing WCPA 2022 – 1st International Workshop and Challenge on People Analysis: from Face, Body and Fashion to 3D Virtual Avatars -in conjunction with ECCV 2022 | Oct. 23-27 2022 | Tel Aviv, Israel

AIMS AND SCOPE

Human-centered data are extremely widespread and have been intensely investigated by researchers belonging to even very different fields, including Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence. These research efforts are motivated by the several highly-informative aspects of humans that can be investigated, ranging from corporal elements (e.g. bodies, faces, hands, anthropometric measurements) to emotions and outward appearance (e.g. human garments and accessories).

The huge amount and the extreme variety of this kind of data make the analysis and the use of learning approaches extremely challenging. In this context, several interesting problems can be addressed, such as the reliable detection and tracking of people, the estimation of the body pose, the development of new human-computer interaction paradigms based on expression and sentiment analysis.

Furthermore, considering the crucial impact of human-centered technologies in many industrial application domains, the demand for accurate models able also to run on mobile and embedded solutions is constantly increasing. For instance, the analysis and manipulation of garments and accessories worn by people can play a crucial role in the fashion business. Also, the human pose estimation can be used to monitor and guarantee the safety between workers and industrial robotic arms.

The goal of this workshop is to improve the communication between researchers and companies and to develop novel ideas that can shape the future of this area, in terms of motivations, methodologies, prospective trends, and potential industrial applications. Finally, a consideration about the privacy issuesbehind the acquisition and the use of human-centered data must be addressed for both the academia and companies.
