Observing and Understanding Hands in Action
in conjunction with ECCV 2024


Welcome to our HANDS@ECCV24.

Our HANDS workshop will gather vision researchers working on perceiving hands performing actions, including 2D & 3D hand detection, segmentation, pose/shape estimation, tracking, etc. We will also cover related applications including gesture recognition, hand-object manipulation analysis, hand activity understanding, and interactive interfaces.

The eighth edition of this workshop will emphasize the use of large foundation models (e.g. CLIP, Point-E, Segment Anything, Latent Diffusion Models) for hand-related tasks. These models have revolutionized the perceptions of AI, and demonstrate groundbreaking contributions to multimodal understanding, zero-shot learning, and transfer learning. However, there remains an untapped potential for exploring their applications in hand-related tasks.


The HANDS workshop will be held in the afternoon on September 30th, 2024, at MiCo Milano.

Other information will be released later.

Submission Guidelines

Submission Website: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/HANDS2024

We accept full length papers, extended abstracts and posters in our workshop. The full length submissions should be anonymized and will be one-round peer reviewed. The accepted full length papers will be included in the ECCV24 conference proceedings, while others will only be presented in the workshop. We welcome papers that are accepted to the ECCV2024 main conference or previous conferences, and extended abstracts that in progress, to show the posters in our workshop.

Call for full length papers

Full length submissions should follow ECCV2024 submission policies (no more than 14 pages) and use the official ECCV 2024 template. Note that the submissions violate the double-blind policy or the dual-submission policy will be rejected without review.

Call for extended abstracts and posters

Extended abstracts are not subject to the ECCV rules, and can use other templates. They should be shorter than the equivalent of 4 pages in CVPR template format. Note that extended abstracts are not anonymized, and will not be peer reviewed. Accepted extended abstracts will only publish on our website, show in our workshop and not appear in the ECCV24 conference proceedings. Posters can be simply submitted with PDF and their brief information like paper title, authors and conference name.
