Call for Papers: IJCV Special Issue on Vision for all Seasons

Adverse weather and illumination conditions (e.g. fog, rain, snow,
ice, low light, nighttime, glare and shadows) create visibility
problems for the sensors that power automated systems. Many outdoor
applications such as autonomous cars and surveillance systems are
required to operate equally smoothly in such frequent scenarios like
bad weather and nighttime. While rapid progress is being made in this
direction, the performance of current vision algorithms is mainly
benchmarked under clear weather conditions (good weather, favorable
lighting). Even the top-performing algorithms suffer from a severe
drop in performance under adverse conditions.

Moreover, over recent years, the community has greatly progressed in
visibility enhancement in cases such as foggy (hazy) or rainy images,
low-light (nighttime) images, shadowed areas, and over-/under-exposed
images. Yet, their usefulness to higher-level vision tasks is still
largely to be examined and exploited.

This special issue solicits papers on all of these topics.
