Imbalance Problems in Computer Vision (IPCV) Call for Papers

**ECCV Workshop on Imbalance Problems in Computer Vision (IPCV)**

28 August 2020, Glasgow


Paper submission: 7 July 2020

Notification: 28 July 2020

Camera ready: 7 August 2020

Workshop: 28 August 2020

**Workshop Theme and Scope**

Performance of learning-based methods is adversely affected by
imbalance problems at various levels, including the input,
intermediate or mid-level stages of the processing or the objectives
to be optimized in a multi-task setting. Currently, researchers tend
to address these challenges in their particular context with
problem-specific solutions and with limited awareness of the solutions
proposed for similar challenges in other computer vision problems.

Imbalance problems can arise in almost all computer vision problems
and therefore, the workshop is highly relevant and interesting for a
broad community. A recent, comprehensive review paper on imbalance
problems in object detection (IEEE TPAMI, 2020; preprint: cites over 200 papers which were
written by 655 unique authors. We interpret these numbers (which are
specific to just one computer vision task, namely, object detection)
as strong indicators of interest in imbalance problems.

We invite contributions for (i) the dissemination of approaches
developed in individual problems, as well as (ii) discussing
commonalities between these approaches for developing better and more
general solutions for addressing imbalance problems in computer
