Call for Participation

On 16th November 2016 the BMVA will hold a one-day meeting on the topic of “Plants in Computer Vision”.  New methods in plant biology have led to an explosion in data types and methods of data acquisition, and much of this data is image-based in nature. Computer vision, image analysis and image processing techniques are being applied to more plant data than ever before. We welcome contributions to this workshop in the form of oral presentations, posters or demos. Suggested topics include:

  • Plant detection and segmentation

  • Plant classification

  • Modelling growth and change

  • Datasets

  • The evaluation of plant-focussed vision systems

  • Shape modelling in plant imaging

  • 3D systems (both multi-view and dedicated capture e.g. laser)

  • Microscopy imaging in the plant domain

  • X-ray, CT and MRI imaging of plants

  • Modelling fine variation between phenotypes

  • From phenotype to genotype: vision systems looking at the biological sciences “pipeline”

This list is not exhaustive, so if you if you would like to present on anything vision-and-plant related do submit an abstract. You may include links or pointers to web-based materials, demonstrations or papers giving more details. The work can be “in progress”, recently published, or of course novel research. We welcome interdisciplinary work and work from those outside of the mainstream computer vision community.

We have a Google form for submissions online at: http://goo.gl/forms/SRTRWNQTWx.  Deadline for submissions is September 21st 2016.

If you have any questions feel free to contact Hannah Dee on hmd1@aber.ac.uk.
