Computational Cameras and Displays

Computational photography has become an increasingly active area of research within the computer vision community. Within the few last years, the amount of research has grown tremendously with dozens of published papers per year in a variety of vision, optics, and graphics venues. A similar trend can be seen in the emerging field of computational displays – spurred by the widespread availability of precise optical and material fabrication technologies, the research community has begun to investigate the joint design of display optics and computational processing. Such displays are not only designed for human observers but also for computer vision applications, providing high-dimensional structured illumination that varies in space, time, angle, and the color spectrum. This workshop is designed to unite the computational camera and display communities in that it considers to what degree concepts from computational cameras can inform the design of emerging computational displays and vice versa, both focused on applications in computer vision.

The CCD workshop series serves as an annual gathering place for researchers and practitioners who design, build, and use computational cameras, displays, and projector-camera systems for a wide variety of uses. The workshop solicits papers, posters, and demo submissions on all topics relating to projector-camera systems.

Poster and Spotlight Submissions

The call for poster and spotlight submissions is now open. The deadline for submissions is June 7th, 2021. Presenting a virtual poster at CCD gives an opportunity to showcase previously published or yet-to-be-published work to a larger community at CVPR.

Submissions should include a PDF with 1-2 paragraphs (at most 1 page) describing the proposed poster, relevant figures, as well as author names and affiliations (an optional latex template can be downloaded here). We also encourage authors to submit a 2 minute video (.mp4 format) summarizing their work to be shown as a spotlight during the livestream if selected. Note that submitted abstracts do not appear in any proceedings.

Poster and spotlight submissions should be submitted via this form by June 7st, 2021. Decisions will be made by June 11th, 2021. Please direct any questions to

Important Dates
  • Spotlight submission deadline: June 7th, 2021
