Call For Papers

NTIRE: 3rd New Trends in Image Restoration and Enhancement workshop and challenges on image super-resolution, dehazing and spectral reconstruction 2018
In conjunction with CVPR 2018

Website: http://www.vision.ee.ethz.ch/ntire18/
Contact: radu.timofte [at] vision.ee.ethz.ch

Scope

Image restoration and image enhancement are key computer vision tasks, aiming at the restoration of degraded image content or the filling in of missing information. 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 use of mobile and wearable devices offer another fertile ground for additional applications and faster methods.

This workshop aims to provide an overview of the new trends and advances in those areas. Moreover, it will offer an opportunity for academic and industrial attendees to interact and explore collaborations.


Topics

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

● Image/video inpainting
● Image/video deblurring
● Image/video denoising
● Image/video upsampling and super-resolution
● Image/video filtering
● Image/video dehazing
● Demosaicing
● Image/video compression
● Artifact removal
● Image enhancement: brightening, color adjustment, sharpening, etc.
● Style transfer
● Image/video generation and image hallucination
● Image/video quality assessment
● Video restoration and enhancement
● Hyperspectral imaging
● Underwater imaging
● Aerial and satellite imaging
● Methods robust to changing weather conditions / adverse outdoor conditions
● Studies and applications of the above.

Submission

A paper submission has to be in English, in pdf format, and at most 8 pages (excluding references) in CVPR style. The paper format must follow the same guidelines as for all CVPR submissions.
http://cvpr2018.thecvf.com/submission/main_conference/author_guidelines
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 CVPR main conference only. If a paper is submitted also to CVPR and accepted, the paper cannot be published both at the CVPR and the workshop.

For the paper submissions, please go to the online submission site (opens February 1, 2018).

Accepted and presented papers will be published after the conference in the CVPR Workshops Proceedings on by IEEE (http://www.ieee.org) and Computer Vision Foundation (www.cv-foundation.org).

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 then see the CVPR author instruction page.

Workshop Dates

● Submission Deadline: March 01, 2018
● Decisions: March 29, 2018
● Camera Ready Deadline: April 05, 2018


NTIRE 2018 Challenge on Image Super-Resolution (STARTED!)

GOAL: to gauge the current state-of-the-art in (example-based) single-image super-resolution under realistic conditions, to compare and to promote different solutions

TRACKS: 4 tracks using classic and realistic degradation operators and a large dataset


NTIRE 2018 Challenge on Image Dehazing (STARTED!)

GOAL: to gauge the current state-of-the-art in image dehazing for real haze, to compare and to promote different solutions we are organizing an NTIRE challenge in conjunction with the CVPR 2018 conference. A novel dataset of real hazy images with ground truth will be introduced with the challenge. It is the first image dehazing online challenge.

TRACKS: 2 tracks for indoor and outdoor dehazing



NTIRE 2018 Challenge on Spectral Reconstruction from RGB images (STARTED!)

GOAL: to gauge the current state-of-the-art in spectral reconstruction from RGB images, to compare and to promote different solutions we are organizing an NTIRE challenge in conjunction with the CVPR 2018 conference. The largest dataset to date will be introduced with the challenge. It is the first spectral reconstruction from RGB images online challenge.

TRACKS: 2 tracks for ideal and realistic conditions
