Workshop on What is Motion for?

In conjunction with ECCV 2022

About the Workshop

Motion is an important cue for many perception tasks from navigation to scene understanding. This workshop will explore various ways of representing and extracting motion information, and provide a venue to exchange ideas about the use of motion in Computer Vision.

We invite paper contributions discussing temporal and motion representations, their applications, evaluation metrics, and benchmarks that will help understand and shape the future of temporal and motion representations and its role in the field of computer vision and other related areas.

The workshop will focus on topics including (but not limited to):

  • Motion representations (optical flow, stereo, scene flow, and alternatives)
  • Benchmarks involving motion estimation or motion understanding
  • Multi-frame and long term motion representations
  • Applications of motion estimation and representations and the impact on other computer vision problems (e.g. tracking, action classification, video captioning, etc)
  • Motion representations in other applications, such as graphics, autonomous driving, robotics, medical imaging, animal tracking etc
  • Event cameras and applications of event-based representations

Instructions for Authors

We will accept submissions in two formats:

  • Previously published papers (up to 12 pages in ECCV submission format) representing work that is relevant to the workshop and has been published in a peer-reviewed venue before. These submissions will be checked for relevance to the workshop, but will not undergo a complete review, and will not be published in the workshop proceedings.
  • Novel works and ideas in the form of full papers (up to 12 pages in ECCV submission format) or extended abstracts (up to 4 pages, no format will be given preference over the other) representing novel work that has not been previously published or accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed venue. These submissions will undergo double-blind review, and authors of accepted works will have the option to have their work included in the ECCV workshop proceedings. Note that if you want to re-submit your paper to a future Computer Vision conference, the length should not exceed 4 pages including citations.

Accepted papers will be presented as posters/short online presentations, and the authors of the best paper will be invited to give an oral presentation. The workshop website will provide links to the accepted papers. Authors of novel and previously unpublished papers will have the option to have their papers included in the ECCV workshop proceedings.

Papers should be submitted via CMT, at the following URL:

Dual submission policy: Please do not submit work for peer review to two workshops/conferences simultaneously.
