Call For Papers

ACCV International Workshop on New Trends in Image Restoration and Enhancement (NTIRE) 2016
In conjunction with ACCV 2016

Contact: w10 [at] ; radu.timofte [at]


Image restoration and image enhancement are key computer vision tasks aiming at the restoration of image contents and/or filling in missing contents from corrupted or incomplete images. Recent years have witnessed an increased interest from the vision and graphics communities in these fundamental topics of research. Not only has there been a constantly growing flow of related papers, but also substantial progress has been achieved.

Each step forward eases the use of images by people or computers for the fulfillment of further tasks, with image restoration or enhancement serving as an important frontend. Not surprisingly then, there is an ever growing range of applications in fields such as surveillance, the automotive industry, electronics, remote sensing, or medical image analysis. The emergence and ubiquitous adoption of mobile and wearable devices offer another fertile ground for additional applications and demand for efficient methods.

This workshop aims to provide an overview of the new trends and advances in the intriguing areas of image restoration and enhancement research. Moreover, it will be a welcome meeting place and an opportunity for academic and industrial attendees to interact and explore further collaborations.


Papers addressing image restoration and enhancement and related topics are invited. The topics include, but are not limited to:

● Image inpainting
● Image deblurring
● Image denoising
● Image upsampling and super-resolution
● Image filtering
● Image dehazing
● Demosaicing
● Image enhancement: brightening, color adjustment, sharpening, etc.
● Image-quality assessment
● Video processing
● Hyperspectral imaging
● Studies and applications of the above.


A paper submission has to be in English, in pdf format, and at most 14 pages (excluding references) in LNCS style. The paper format must follow the same guidelines as for all ACCV submissions.
The review process is double blind. Authors do not know the names of the chair/reviewers of their papers. Reviewers do not know the names of the authors.
Dual submission is allowed with ACCV main conference only. If a paper is submitted also to ACCV and accepted, the paper cannot be published both at the ACCV and the workshop.

For the paper submissions, please go to the online submission site.

Accepted and presented papers will be published after the conference in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

The author kit provides a LaTeX2e template for paper submissions. Please refer to the example for detailed formatting instructions. If you use a different document processing system to LaTeX then see the LNCS author instruction page.

Author Kit:


● Submission Deadline: August 25, 2016
● Decisions: September 17, 2016
● Camera Ready Deadline: September 24, 2016

Journal Special Issue

The authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version (at least 30% more contents) to CVIU special issue on Vision and Computational Photography and Graphics (deadline 15 December 2016).
