Fifth International Workshop on Assistive Computer Vision and Robotics
Venice, Italy – October 28th, 2017
More information will be available soon.


All submissions will be handled electronically via the conference’s CMT Website:

The format for paper submission is the same as the ICCV 2017 main conference. Please refer to the following files for detailed formatting instructions:

ACVR reviewing will be double blind; in that authors will not know the names of the area reviewers of their papers, and area reviewers will not know the names of the authors. Each submitted paper will be revised by three experts.

The paper length should match that intended for final publication. Papers are limited to eight pages (excluding references), including figures and tables. Additional pages must contain only cited references. While there is no limit to the number of references, reviewers are instructed to check for pertinence. Citation of any of the co-authors’ published work must be done in the third person. Reference to unpublished work can be made by anonymizing it, including it as supplementary material, and referencing it as Anonymous.

Authors may optionally submit additional material that could not be included in the main paper due to constraints of format (e.g., a video), space (e.g., a proof of a theorem or an extra figure or table) or anonymity .

Papers that are not blind, or do not use the template, or have more than 8 pages (excluding references) will be rejected without review.

For more information please refer to the ICCV 2017 Author Guidelines.


Each oral presentation is allocated a 15 minute slot (including 3 minutes for questions). Presenters are requested to be present at the podium at least 15 minutes before the start of their session and introduce themselves to the session chair as soon as they arrive. Presenters are requested to bring their own laptop and test the connection to the AV equipment before the session starts.

Poster boards have a dimension of 2 (width) x 3 (height) m. Despite you can use any poster size, a horizontal layout (e.g. 2 x 1.5 m) is recommended. ICCV organizers provide a PowerPoint template here.


Accepted papers will be published in the (post-conference) proceedings of the workshops.

The authors of the accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version (at least 40+% different than the workshop versions) of their papers to the Special Issue on Learning and Recognition for Assisted Computer vision special issue of the Pattern Recognition Letters Journal.


Tentative dates:

In case of rejection from ICCV (decision on July 17), authors are allowed to re-submit their work to ACVR by July 24, 2017. Authors should also submit as supplementary material the ICCV reviews, rebuttal and meta-reviews.
