Workshop on Computer Vision for Analysis of Underwater Imagery (CVAUI) Call for Papers

CFP: Workshop on Computer Vision for Analysis of Underwater Imagery (CVAUI)

In conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR)
Beijing, China, 20 August 2018

The analysis of underwater imagery imposes a series of unique
challenges, which need to be tackled by the computer vision community
in collaboration with biologists and ocean scientists. We invite
submissions from all areas of computer vision and image analysis
relevant for, or applied to, underwater image analysis.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- underwater image enhancement
- physical models of reflectance and light transport
- underwater scene understanding
- classification, detection, segmentation
- autonomous underwater navigation
- detection and monitoring of marine life
- object tracking
- automatic video annotation and summarization
- context-aware machine learning and image understanding

Important dates:
- Submission deadline: 15 May 2018
- Author notification: 1 July 2018
- Camera ready: 1 August 2018
- Workshop day: 20 August 2018
