*Workshop Topics *

A key ingredient of the recent successes in computer vision has been the
availability of
visual data with annotations, both for training and testing, and
protocols for evaluating the results. However, this traditional supervised
framework is limited when it comes to deployment on new tasks and/or
operating in
new domains. In order to scale to such situations, we must find mechanisms
to reuse
the available annotations or the models learned from them and generalize to
domains and tasks.

Accordingly, TASK-CV aims to bring together research in transfer learning
and domain
adaptation for computer vision and invites the submission of research
on the following topics:
■ TL/DA focusing on specific computer vision tasks (e.g., image
object detection, semantic segmentation, recognition, retrieval, tracking,
and applications (biomedical, robotics, multimedia, autonomous driving,
■ TL/DA focusing on specific visual features, models or learning algorithms
challenging paradigms like unsupervised, reinforcement, or online learning
■ TL/DA in the era of convolutional neural networks (CNNs), adaptation
of fine-tuning, regularization techniques, transfer of architectures and
weights, etc.
■ Comparative studies of different TL/DA methods and transferring part

between categories and 2D/3D modalities
■ Working frameworks with appropriate CV-oriented datasets and evaluation
protocols to assess TL/DA

This is not a closed list; thus, we welcome other related research for

*VisDA Challenge*
The VisDA challenge aims to test domain adaptation methods’ ability to
source knowledge and adapt it to novel target domains.
