Vision-based Applications and HCI
Workshop at MobileHCI 2012
San Francisco, USA, September 21, 2012

Workshop: September 21, 2012


The capabilities of smartphones and other mobile/hand-held devices are
increasingly being exploited to bring vision-based mobile applications to
the user. Applications such as visual search and image retrieval, face
recognition, augmented reality, marker-based tagging, gesture recognition,
and video data streaming are altering the way we interact with the world
around us in a mobile context.

This workshop aims to address the fundamental vision-based technologies
that enable new interaction modalities and metaphors. We also would like
to encourage the exploration of new radical or experimental interactions
as well as new design concepts and application scenarios. Our aim is to
promote a cross-disciplinary discussion between computer vision
researchers, HCI researchers, interaction designers, and practitioners of
either field. The aim is to highlight and elaborate the potential of
computer vision as an enabling technology for new forms of mobile
interaction, applications and implications for user experience and design.

Relevant topics include but are not limited to:
– Real-time tracking, pose estimation and SLAM on mobile devices.
– Local image features for fast image recognition, matching, etc.
– Mobile Augmented Reality linking the physical and the virtual world
– Application scenarios for camera-based applications, e.g., pedestrian
entertainment, learning and education, social networks, journalism,
field work
– Toolkits and methods for prototyping vision-based mobile applications
– Models and frameworks for evaluating vision-based mobile interaction
– Artistic and creative approaches to designing vision-based mobile
– Computational photography on mobile devices
– Privacy aspects of camera-based mobile applications

Paper submissions should have a length of 4 pages and can be novel
research findings, position papers, or case studies, addressing one or
more of the topics mentioned above. Papers should be submitted via

The review process is “DOUBLE BLIND” meaning the authors take
responsibility to ensure that their identity as authors is hidden during
submission and review stages. Each paper submission will be reviewed by at
least 2 members of the Program Committee. Participants will be selected on
the basis of their submissions. Papers should be formatted according to
the standard HCI Archive format:
(the copyright notice should be removed).

At least one author of accepted papers needs to register for the workshop
and for the conference itself. We will make accepted contributions
available on the workshop home page.

We encourage the participants to bring and show prototypes of their recent
