Call For Papers

WACV 2024 Call For Papers

IEEE/CVF Winter Conference on Applications of Computer Vision (WACV) provides a forum for computer vision researchers working on practical applications and innovative algorithms to share their latest developments. WACV 2024 solicits high-quality, original submissions describing research in computer vision, with a particular emphasis on systems and applications with significant, interesting vision components. 

Application areas include, but are not limited to: 

  • Agriculture 
  • Animals and Insects 
  • Arts, games, and social media 
  • Autonomous driving 
  • Biomedical, healthcare, and medicine 
  • Commercial and retail 
  • Education 
  • Embedded sensing and real-time techniques 
  • Environmental monitoring, climate change, and ecology 
  • Food science and nutrition 
  • Psychology and cognitive science 
  • Remote sensing 
  • Robotics 
  • Smartphones and end-user devices 
  • Social good 
  • Structural engineering and civil engineering 
  • Virtual and augmented reality 
  • Visualization 

Authors are also encouraged to submit more traditional computer vision algorithms papers. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 

  • 3D computer vision 
  • Adversarial learning, adversarial attack, and defense methods 
  • Biometrics, face, gesture, and body pose 
  • Computational photography 
  • Generative models for image, video, 3D, etc. 
  • Datasets and evaluations 
  • Explainable, fair, accountable, privacy-preserving, and ethical computer vision 
  • Image recognition and understanding (object detection, categorization, segmentation, scene modeling, visual reasoning) 
  • Low-level and physics-based vision 
  • Machine learning architectures, formulations, and algorithms (including transfer, low-shot, semi-, self-, and unsupervised learning) 
  • Video recognition and understanding (tracking, action recognition, etc.) 
  • Vision + language and/or other modalities 

All submissions will be handled electronically through CMT: 

Papers can be submitted to either the applications or the algorithms tracks, which will have different review criteria. Applications papers will be 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. 

Deadlines (**note that all PT timezone deadlines are AM not PM):

Round 1: 

  • Paper registration: June 21st, 2023 11:59 AM PT (June 21st, 2023 06:59 PM GMT)
  • Submission: June 28th, 2023 11:59 AM PT (June 28th, 2023 06:59 PM GMT) 
  • Supplementary material deadline: June 30th, 11:59 AM PT (June 30th, 2023 06:59 PM GMT)
  • Reviews and Decisions released to authors: Aug 11th, 2023 Aug 14th, 2023
  • Rebuttal and Revision submission: Aug. 30th, 2023 11:59 AM PT (Aug. 30th, 2023 06:59 PM GMT)
  • Final Decisions released to authors: Oct 20th, 2023 

Round 2: 

  • Paper registration: Aug 23rd, 2023 11:59 AM PT (Aug. 23th, 2023 06:59 PM GMT) 
  • Submission: Aug. 30th, 2023 11:59 AM PT (Aug. 30th, 2023 06:59 PM GMT) 
  • Supplementary material deadline: September 1st, 11:59 AM PT (September 1st, 2023 06:59 PM GMT)
  • Reviews and Final Decisions released to authors: Oct 20th, 2023 

As in previous years, WACV 2024 will employ a two-round review process. New papers can be submitted in either the first or the second round. The primary benefit of submitting in Round 1 is that submissions which are not accepted early in the first round can be revised and resubmitted along with a rebuttal, enabling authors to address reviewer concerns. Round 2 submissions will not have a rebuttal.
