📅 17 June, 2024 📍 Seattle, US
Workshop on Computer Vision for Mixed Reality
In conjunction with CVPR 2024
Call for Papers

Overview

Virtual Reality (VR) technologies have the potential to transform the way we use computing to interact with our environment, do our work and connect with each other. VR devices provide users with immersive experiences at the cost of blocking the visibility of the surrounding environment. With the advent of passthrough techniques such as those in Quest-3 and Apple Vision Pro, now users can build deeply immersive experiences which mix the virtual and the real world into one, often also called Mixed Reality (MR). MR poses a set of very unique research problems in computer vision that are not covered by VR. Our focus is on capturing the real environment around the user using cameras which are placed away from the user's eyes, yet reconstruct the environment with high fidelity, augmented the environment with virtual objects and effects, and all in real-time. We aim to offer the research community to deeply understand the unique challenges of Mixed Reality and research on novel methods encompassing View Synthesis, Scene Understanding, efficient On-Device AI among other things.
