Designing systems with humans in the loop with the goal to assist them is an exciting research area, with the potential on impact society at large. This requires a very different set of innovations, tools, and evaluation criteria than classic methods involved in fully autonomous tasks. Implementing such kinds of systems still requires a lot of effort to reach an adequate level of reliability and introduces challenging satellite issues related to usability, privacy, and acceptability. Besides, multidisciplinary competencies are required to adapt computer vision and robotics techniques and algorithms to industrial, social, medical, and economic constraints. The aim of the workshop is to fill the reality gap in computer vision and robotics for assistive technology. The goal is to provide, year by year, a view of how recent findings in computer vision and robotics are changing assistive technologies, with emphasis on the related additional issues and how they have been addressed by the researchers working in the different research areas involved. We solicit contributed papers presenting assistive systems and describing how the related issues have been addressed. Submissions describing the outcome of research projects on the topics of the workshop are also welcome. We encourage the presentation of new data benchmarks for the workshop-related fields.

Authors may also submit abstracts describing published or ongoing works.

Finally, the workshop will give a unique opportunity to students, who are close to finishing or who have recently been awarded their doctorate degree, to discuss their research and interact with experienced researchers in computer vision and robotics (Doctoral Consortium).

Contributions are solicited in, but not limited to, the following topic areas:

Symbiotic Human-Machine Systems;

Computer Vision to aid Industrial Processes;

Augmented and Mixed Reality;

Computer Vision to Improve the Safety of Workers;

Human-Robot Interaction;

Home Healthcare;

Technology for Cognition;

Automatic Emotional Hearing and Understanding;

Activity Monitoring Systems;

Manipulation Aids;

Smart Environments;

Safety and Security;

Ambient Assistive Living;

Privacy-preserving systems;

Robot assistants;

Quality of Life Technologies;

Navigation Systems;

Mobile and Wearable Systems;

Applications for the Visually Impaired;

Sign language recognition and applications for the hearing impaired; Applications for the Ageing Society;

Personalized Monitoring;

Egocentric and First-Person Vision;

Applications to improve the health and well-being of children and elderly; Autonomous Driving;

Driver Assistance Systems;

Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) for Assistive Systems;

Multi-modal Human-Centered Systems.

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

The format for paper submission is the same as the ICCV 2023 main conference. Please refer to ICCV 2023 author guidelines (

See the instructions and guidelines on the following page:




ACVR2023 paper reviewing will be double-blind; 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 8 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, do not use the template, or have more than 8 pages (excluding references) will be rejected without review.




Authors may also submit abstracts describing published or ongoing works. The abstract should follow the same format as contributed papers and should be at least 2 pages and at most 4 pages long, including references. Authors of accepted abstracts will be given the possibility to present their work during the workshop. The abstract will not be published in the workshop proceedings. The accepted abstracts will be published online on the workshop website upon consensus agreement provided by the authors.




The doctoral consortium is intended to be a discussion forum for PhD students and recent PhD graduates who wish to present, discuss, and receive feedback on their research activity. Eligible applicants are researchers who were awarded their PhD at most a year before the submission deadline, PhD candidates and PhD students who expected to graduate within two years. Applicants should submit a document describing their research activity at most 4 pages long (excluding references). The document will not be published in the workshop proceedings, and it may contain ongoing work and already published material. Eligible submissions will be selected by the workshop organizers and given the possibility to present and discuss their work during the workshop event in Paris. We expect submissions to cover aspects relevant to the aims and topics of the workshop. The submitted documents should follow the same format as the contributed papers.




All accepted contributed papers will appear in the ICCV2023 workshops proceedings. Authors may be invited to submit an extended version (at least 40% more than the seminar versions) of their work to a special issue (currently still in the planning stage) in a recognized journal in the field of computer vision or robotic research.
