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.

Previous CCD Workshops:
CCD2019, CCD2018, CCD2017, CCD2016, CCD2015, CCD2014, CCD2013, CCD2012

Important Dates

  • Spotlight submission deadline: May 29, 2020
  • Spotlight decision: June 5, 2020
  • Workshop date: June 19th, 2020



The CCD workshop is part of the CVPR 2020 workshops. Please see the CVPR webpage for information on venue, accommodations, and other details. Note that while CVPR20 will happen in June as scheduled, the odds of a purely virtual meeting are significant. Please take this into consideration and avoid booking non-refundable travel reservations at this time.


Spotlight Submissions

CCD spotlights will give an opportunity to showcase previously published or yet-to-be published work to a larger community at CVPR. Due to the likely virtual format of this year's CVPR conference, accepted abstract submissions will be presented as a spotlight presentation during the main workshop. This year selected spotlights will be selected through abstract submissions.

*Note: Submitted abstracts do not appear in any proceedings.

Submissions should include 1-2 paragraphs (at most 1 page) describing the proposed poster/demo, relevant figures, as well as author names and affiliations. Please send submissions by email directly to:
