workshop aims to bring together computer vision researchers and experts
in VI rehabilitation and assistive technology. Attendance by VI experts
outside the computer vision community will also be encouraged. By
addressing the context in which assistive technology is used and
designed, the workshop seeks to help researchers identify fruitful
areas of overlap between the most pressing needs of the VI population
and the capabilities of computer vision technology. A general
discussion session at the end of the workshop will facilitate the
exchange of ideas between computer vision researchers and VI experts.
