17th IEEE Workshop on Perception Beyond the Visible Spectrum Call for Papers

The 17th IEEE Workshop on Perception Beyond the Visible Spectrum
(PBVS) will be held in conjunction with the IEEE International
Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) in June,
2021 in a virtual setup.

The website is already online:


Since its inception in 2004, the Perception Beyond the Visible
Spectrum workshop series (IEEE PBVS) has been one of the key events in
the computer vision and pattern recognition (CVPR) community featuring
imaging, sensing and exploitation algorithms in the non-visible
spectrum (infrared, thermal, radar, ). It is a leading meeting for
scientists, researchers, students and engineers from academia,
industry, and government agencies throughout the world so we invite
you to participate in PBVS 2021. For more information refer to the
Call for Paper and the Submission Instructions.
