Call for Papers: IJCV Special Issue on Computer Vision in the Wild

Guest editors: Mei Chen, Cha Zhang, Katsu Ikeuchi

Evidence abounds that Cambrian explosion is happening in computer
vision. For example, the CVPR conferences in the 1990s and 2000s had
typically around 500 attendees. The number of participants reached
almost 10,000 at CVPR 2019. That is a 20 times increase in about 10
years. The number of start-ups in computer vision and the amount of
venture funding invested in this area are skyrocketing. This is
because people now believe that the recent breakthroughs have made
computer vision techniques work in the real world, and that computer
vision is overcoming the barrier of linear approximation and has
become a serious business. Cambrian explosion in biology occurred due
to the acquisition of visual organs, while the Cambrian explosion in
computer vision is occurring thanks to the disruption brought upon by
deep learning techniques, supported by big data and high-performance
computing platforms.

This special issue aims to highlight cutting-edge research results
that lead to the Cambrian explosion in computer vision. We especially
look forward to manuscripts that present the current level of the
state-of-the-art and indicate the limitations yet to be overcome for
reaching the next stage of developments.

Authors are encouraged to submit high-quality, original work that has
neither appeared in, nor is under consideration by other journals. All
