Computer Vision for Animal Behavior Tracking and Modeling

Call for Reviewers 

Please put your name on the following form if you are available to review a paper or two for IJCV


Call for Papers

We solicit exciting non-archival papers on topics of Computer Vision for Animals.  The most successful submissions to the last year's special issue were of the following form or a combination thereof:

Method paper: An advancement of or extension to an existing computer vision algorithm that has been tailored for animals, showing clear improvements on existing/strong baselines (e.g., the current state-of-the-art algorithm applied to humans if there is no or only little comparable methods for animals yet)

System paper: A clever combination of existing methods that solves a problem of interest to CV4Animals, rigorously evaluated on two or more datasets and showing that the choice of model components is non-trivial, each component is essential, and that the proposed method compares favorable to the current state-of-the-art.

Dataset paper: A new dataset that brings about a new aspect (e.g., new species, annotation type, larger scale), comes with a well-define evaluation protocol (train/val/test split and metrics), and provides scores for strong baselines (state-of-the-art on a related task/domain, typically more than one). Other forms are of course possible too, e.g., a state-of-the-art report. The examples just serve as a reference for the most common article types.

Please submit an extended abstract (four pages) by July 10th or earlier. We will screen these submission immediately and invite promising articles to the IJCV special issue promptly. 

No abstract is required if you have been invited to the special issue through the CV4Animals workshop at CVPR.

Final submission deadline: 11:59 pm, August 31, 2023 (Pacific Time)
