Civil and infrastructure engineering are corner stones in modern society, and as the world population continues to grow, the infrastructure and built environment has to keep up. This puts a large burden on the inspection of infrastructure such as bridges, roads, sewerage, buildings etc. Computer vision can be used to enable automating the inspection process and contributing to the built environment by e.g. easy data collection and analysis, which can be used in Building Information Modeling (BIM), as well as navigation in (GPS-denied) environments. Computer vision can also be used to analyze work patterns or detect hazardous situations at e.g. construction sites, where large machinery and humans are in close proximity to each other. There is huge potential for computer vision in many aspects of the civil and infrastructure domain which have yet to be realized.

Call for Papers

The ambition of this workshop is to bring together practitioners and researchers from different disciplines to share ideas and methods on current and future use of computer vision in civil and infrastructure engineering. To this end, we welcome computer vision–based research contributions as well as best-practice contributions focusing on the following (and similar) topics:

  • Computer vision for automated inspection of infrastructures
  • Multi-modal analysis for automated infrastructure inspections
  • Computer vision for Building Information Modeling (BIM)
  • XAI in automated infrastructure inspections
  • Activity recognition in construction sites
  • Event detection in construction sites
  • Safety estimation in construction sites
  • Urban and indoor localization/navigation
  • Comfort assessment in the built environment
  • Alternative sensing for BIM and infrastructure inspections
  • Augmented/virtual reality for civil & infrastructure engineering
  • Datasets and annotations for civil & infrastructure engineering
