BMVC 2015 Workshop on
Computer Vision Problems in Plant Phenotyping (CVPPP 2015)

September 10, 2015, Swansea, UK

Website: http://www.plant-phenotyping.org/CVPPP2015
In conjunction with BMVC 2015 ( http://bmvc2015.swan.ac.uk/ )

Important Dates:
* Submission due: June 24 (Wednesday)
* Notification of acceptance: July 24 (Friday)
* Camera-ready: Aug 3 (Monday)
* Workshop date: September 10

Background: Plant Phenotyping
The goal of this workshop is to showcase computer vision challenges in plant phenotyping. Plant phenotyping is the identification of effects on the phenotype (ie., the plant appearance and behavior) as a result of genotype differences (ie., differences in the genetic code) and the environmental conditions a plant has been exposed to. Knowing the plant phenotypes is a key ingredient for knowledge-based bioeconomy and this, not only literally helps in the efforts to feed the world, but is also essential for feed, fibre and fuel production.

Unfortunately, without automated and accurate computer vision to extract the phenotypes, a bottleneck is encountered, hampering our understanding of plant biology.

Scope of the Workshop:
The overriding goal is to identify key but unsolved problems, expose the current state-of-the-art, and broaden the field and the community. Since plant phenotyping is an important aspect of agriculture and will support the sustainability of our planet and its inhabitants, having new vision scientists enter this field is more crucial than ever.

Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
* advances in segmentation, tracking, detection, reconstruction and identification methods that address unsolved plant phenotyping scenarios
* open source implementation, comparison and discussion of existing methods and annotation tools
* image data sets defining plant phenotyping challenges, complete with annotations if appropriate, accompanied with benchmark methods if possible, and suitable evaluation methods

Associated with the workshop are two computer vision challenges: http://www.plant-phenotyping.org/CVPPP2015-challenge
a) the 2nd "Plant Leaf Segmentation Challenge" and
b) the Leaf Counting Challenge:
We are looking forward to practical and inspiring leaf segmentation solutions for images stemming from plant phenotyping applications from the broad CV community!
