in conjunction with CVPR 2018, Salt Lake City, June 2018.

This workshop aims at gathering researchers who work on 3D understanding of humans from visual data, including topics such as 3D human pose estimation and tracking, 3D human shape estimation from RGB images or human activity recognition from 3D skeletal data. Current computer vision algorithms and deep learning-based methods can detect people in images and estimate their 2D pose with a remarkable accuracy. However, understanding humans and estimating their pose and shape in 3D is still an open problem. The ambiguities in lifting 2D pose to 3D, the lack of annotated data to train 3D pose regressors in the wild and the absence of a reliable evaluation dataset in real world situations make the problem very challenging.

Call for contributions
We invite submission of full-papers as well as extended abstracts of ongoing or published work. The relevant topics include but are not limited to:

  • 3D human pose estimation (full-body, upper-body, hands, face) in images and videos
  • 3D human shape estimation
  • 3D action recognition (from 3D skeletal data)
  • 3D articulated pose tracking
  • 3D pose from 2D pose
  • 3D pose/shape modeling and rendering
  • 3D face reconstruction
  • Future 3D pose prediction
  • Gesture interfaces
  • Synthetic data and data annotation for 3D human pose
  • Structured prediction, regression, and other relevant theories/algorithms
  • Applications of body pose estimation in AR/VR
  • Applications of body pose estimation in robotics
  • Multi-person 3D pose from images

Paper submissions must follow the CVPR paper format and guidelines and will be handled via the CMT website: Accepted papers will appear in the CVPR proceedings, on IEEE Xplore and on the CVF website. Extended abstracts of ongoing or published work must be sent to: by June 4th. Extended abstracts must not exceed 2 pages including references. Accepted abstracts presented at the workshop will be neither published in the conference proceedings nor in IEEE Xplore or CVF website.
