Call for Papers of Special Issue on "Wearable and Ego-vision Systems for Augmented Experience"
IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems
The rapid progress in the development of low-level component technologies such as wearable
cameras, wearable sensors, wearable displays and wearable computers is making it possible to
augment everyday living. Wearable and egocentric vision systems can be exploited to analyze
multi-modal data types (e.g. video, audio, motion) and to support understanding human
interactions with the world (including gesture recognition, action recognition, social interaction
recognition). Based on the processing of such data, wearable systems can be used to enhance
our capabilities and augment our perception. State-of-the-art techniques for wearable sensing
can support assistive technologies and advanced perception. This special issue intends to
highlight research in support for human performance through egocentric sensing. Topics of
interest include but are not limited to:

1- Human and wearable devices interaction
2- Egocentric (first-person) Vision
3- Affective computing with respect to wearable devices
4- Object detection, Action/Activity  recognition and tracking with wearable devices
5- Mobile/Head-mounted eye tracking
6- Social understanding from egocentric perspective
7- Daily life and activity monitoring
8- Augmented human performance
9- Benchmarking and quantitative evaluation with human subject experiments
