Computer Vision for Analysis of Underwater Imagery 2016


Computer Vision for Analysis of Underwater Imagery (CVAUI)

CVAUI 2016 web page:

In conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Pattern Recognition-ICPR

Cancun, Mexico, 4-8 December, 2016


The analysis of underwater imagery imposes a series of unique challenges, which need to be tackled by the computer vision community in collaboration with biologists and ocean scientists. We invite submissions from all areas of computer vision and image analysis relevant for, or applied to, underwater image analysis.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • underwater image enhancement
  • physical models of reflectance and light transport
  • underwater scene understanding
  • classification, detection, segmentation
  • autonomous underwater navigation
  • detection and monitoring of marine life
  • object tracking
  • automatic video annotation and summarization
  • context-aware machine learning and image understanding

Important dates:

  • Submission deadline: TBD
  • Author notification: TBD
  • Camera ready: TBD
  • Workshop day: TBD
