Call For Papers

Recent efforts in computer vision have demonstrated impressive successes on a variety of real-world challenges. WACV conferences provide a forum for computer vision researchers working on practical applications to share their latest developments.  WACV 2016 solicits high-quality, original submissions describing research on computer vision applications. Unlike other vision conferences, WACV emphasizes papers on systems and applications with significant, interesting vision components or elements. Authors are encouraged to submit applications papers, as well as more traditional algorithms papers.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Early and Biologically-Inspired Vision
  • Segmentation and Grouping
  • Object Recognition
  • Scene Understanding
  • Statistical Methods and Learning
  • Performance Evaluation
  • 3-D modeling
  • Motion/Stereo Processing and Augmented Reality
  • Bio-imaging/Imaging Bioinformatics
  • Big Data and Vision Applications
  • Analysis of Scientific Data
  • Biometrics
  • Document Analysis
  • Image/Video Indexing and Retrieval
  • Remote Sensing
  • Real-time Tracking
  • Face Detection and Recognition
  • Gesture/Hand Recognition
  • Human Motion Analysis/Capture
  • Action Recognition
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Security/Surveillance
  • Vision for Robotics
  • Industrial Inspection
  • Computational Photography
  • Vision for Graphics
  • Vision Systems and Applications
  • Evaluation and Comparison of Vision Algorithms

In the submission process, authors will indicate whether their paper is for the applications or the algorithms track. Reviewing criteria will be different for the two tracks, with applications papers evaluated on systems-level innovation, novelty of the domain and comparative assessment. Algorithms papers will be evaluated according to the standard conference criteria including algorithmic novelty and quantified evaluation against current, alternative approaches.

WACV 2016 will also host a demonstration session. The proceedings will be published electronically and indexed in IEEE Xplore.
