Submissions regarding the analysis and understanding of images/videos acquired during winter activities are welcome to our workshop. The following topics serve as examples:

  • Machine learning solutions for video understanding or activity recognition regarding winter sports

  • Pose estimation of athletes

  • Evaluation and measurement of athlete performance

  • Performance forecasting

  • Detection/evaluation/prevention of injuries in winter sports with computer vision

  • Crowd and spectators monitoring

  • Augmented/virtual reality for winter sports and fan engagement

  • Applications of computer vision/AI to winter sports (skiing, ice-hockey, ice-skating,
    biathlon, bobsleigh, luge, curling, etc.).

  • Image/video understanding in winter/harsh weather conditions

  • Camera pose estimation in broadcast videos

  • Video-based trajectory reconstruction and analysis

  • Winter scene reconstruction from images/videos

  • Snow/ice measurements and analysis with computer vision

  • Real-time processing algorithms

  • Fusion of image/video data and other sensor data

  • Datasets, benchmarks and annotations of winter sport data

There will be two submission tracks:
full papers and extended abstracts.

Full paper submissions should propose comprehensive and well-validated solutions, and adhere to the guidelines of standard WACV 2022 submissions (max 8 pages + references). Accepted full papers will be published under the WACV 2022 workshop proceedings and included in IEEE Xplore.

Extended abstracts should be max 4 pages in length (including tables, figures and references) and can describe novel but not extensively validated ideas, ongoing works, or be recaps of recently published papers (either journal or conference). The accepted abstracts will be published under an arXiv compendium.

All submissions should be compiled for double-blind review, adopt
the standard WACV 2022 template, and be submitted via the workshop's CMT platform:

Please select the appropriate track for your submission ("Full Papers" or "Extended Abstracts").
