  • Recent efforts in computer vision have demonstrated impressive successes on a variety of real-world challenges. WACV conferences provide a forum for computer vision researchers working on practical applications to share their latest developments. WACV 2020 solicits high-quality, original submissions describing research on computer vision applications. Unlike other vision conferences, WACV emphasizes papers on systems and applications with significant, interesting vision components. Authors are encouraged to submit applications papers, as well as more traditional algorithms papers.

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    • Early and Biologically-Inspired Vision
    • Segmentation and Grouping
    • Object Recognition
    • Scene Understanding
    • Statistical Methods and Learning
    • 3-D Modeling
    • Motion Processing
    • Stereo Processing
    • Virtual and Augmented Reality
    • Medical Imaging / Imaging for Bioinformatics
    • Large Scale Vision Applications
    • Vision for Aerial / Drone / Underwater / Ground Vehicles
    • Infrared Imaging
    • Hyperspectral Imaging
    • Biometrics
    • Document Analysis
    • Image/Video Indexing and Retrieval
    • Remote Sensing
    • Real-time Tracking
    • Face Processing
    • Human Motion Analysis/Capture
    • Action Recognition
    • Gesture Recognition
    • Human-Computer Interaction
    • Security/Surveillance
    • Vision for Robotics
    • Industrial Inspection
    • Computational Photography
    • Vision for Graphics
    • Evaluation and Comparison of Vision Algorithms
    • Open Source Software for Computer Vision
    • Image Compression
    • Vision Systems and Applications
    • Multimedia Applications
    • Vision and Languages

    During submission, authors must indicate whether their paper is for the applications or the algorithms track. Reviewing criteria will be different for the two tracks, with applications papers evaluated on systems-level innovation, novelty of the domain and comparative assessment. Algorithms papers will be evaluated according to the standard conference criteria including algorithmic novelty and quantified evaluation against current, alternative approaches.

    As in previous years, WACV 2020 will employ a two-round review process that is similar to journal submissions. New papers can be submitted in either the first or the second round. The primary benefit of submitting in the first round is that submissions can be encouraged for revision/re-submission, enabling authors to address reviewer concerns and significantly improve their work for the second round.  Note,  due to the two round submission process, WACV 2020 will not have a rebuttal period.  Authors should keep this in mind if submitting only to the second round.

    Proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with WACV 2020 are encouraged. Main conference registration will include tutorials.

    Important Dates

    • Tutorial proposal deadline: December 1, 2019
    • Acceptance notification: December 15, 2019

    Organization

    The ideal tutorial should attract a wide audience, and should be broad enough to provide a gentle introduction to the chosen research area, but should also cover the most important contributions in depth. Tutorial materials will be made available by the presenters on their website prior to the conference. Tutorial registration will be handled centrally by the main conference.

    Submission Instructions

    Proposals should have at most three pages and clearly specify the following:
    • Tutorial title and presenters
    • Rational for the tutorial and target audience
    • Outline of topics to be presented, including estimates for time devoted to each topic.
    • The proposal should indicate preference for half-day (9am-12pm) or extended  half day tutorial (9am-2pm).
    • Presenter bios and web pages; list of publications in tutorial topics
    • Presentation requirements (multimedia, etc.)
    • Sample slides (optional)

    Tutorial proposals should be submitted in PDF format (up to 3 pages) to the email address below by the due date. Proposals will be evaluated by the tutorial chair and conference organizers, with an eye towards selecting high-quality tutorials on a diverse set of topics that will inform and inspire the community.

    The 2020 IEEE Winter Conference of Applications on Computer Vision (WACV 2020) will host two days of workshops. We invite workshop proposals that focus on topics related to computer vision and its applications, interdisciplinary themes with other scientific and application areas, as well as emerging challenges or competitions.

    The format, style, and content of accepted workshops are under the control of the workshop organizers and largely autonomous from the main conference. Workshop organizers are expected to manage their technical programs, invite experts in the domain, and maintain a website for the workshop. Workshop registration and logistics will be handled by the main conference.

    Important Dates

    • Workshop proposal deadline: October 1, 2019
    • Workshop acceptance notification: October 8, 2019

     

    Submission Instructions

    Proposals should clearly specify the following:
    • Workshop title, topic and tentative call for papers
    • Motivation, impact, and expected outcomes
    • Brief bios of organizers (including email and web pages)
    • Tentative program committee
    • Format (select either half or full day) and preliminary schedule
    • Tentative invited speakers
    • Estimated number of submissions and attendees
    • Plans (if any) for a special journal issue or book

    Workshop proposals should be submitted in PDF via email to the Workshops Chair (vitomir.struc@fe.uni-lj.si). Proposals will be evaluated by the workshop chair and conference organizers, with an eye towards selecting high-quality workshops on a diverse set of topics that will inform and inspire the community.
