CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS
PIRM: Perceptual Image Restoration and Manipulation workshop and challenges
on image super-resolution, mobile photo enhancement and spectral
in conjunction with ECCV 2018, Munich, Germany
Contact: organizers at pirm2018.org
A key goal in image restoration, manipulation and generation, is to produce
images that are visually appealing to human observers. In recent years,
there has been great interest as well as significant progress in
perceptually-aware computer vision algorithms. However, many works have
observed a fundamental disagreement between this recent leap in
performance, as evaluated by human observers, and the objective assessment
of these methods by common evaluation metrics (e.g. PSNR, SSIM). This
workshop will revolve around two main themes: (i) How to design algorithms
which satisfy human observers, and (ii) How to evaluate the perceptual
quality of such algorithms.
The PIRM challenges will promote perceptual image restoration.
State-of-the-art methods in terms of perceptual quality (e.g. SRGAN) are
rated poorly by "simple" distortion measures such as PSNR and SSIM.
Therefore, in contrast to previous challenges, the evaluation and ranking
will be done in a perceptual-quality aware manner based on [Blau and
Michaeli, CVPR'18]. This unified approach quantifies the accuracy and
perceptual quality of algorithms jointly, and will enable perceptual-driven
methods to compete alongside algorithms that target PSNR maximization.
(1) PIRM CHALLENGE on PERCEPTUAL SUPER RESOLUTION (ongoing!)
(2) PIRM CHALLENGE on MOBILE PHOTO ENHANCEMENT (ongoing!)
(3) PIRM CHALLENGE on SPECTRAL RECONSTRUCTION (ongoing!)
CALL FOR PAPERS
Challenge participants may submit papers for publication at PIRM 2018
workshop and also with the ECCV 2018 Workshop proceedings. The papers
should comply with the ECCV 2018 guidelines. Papers will be accepted based
on: (i) academic quality, and (ii) challenge ranking.
The submission site will be made available soon.
CALL FOR POSTERS
A poster session will be held at the workshop. We invite submissions of
posters presenting work on perceptual-quality driven algorithms, methods
for evaluating perceptual quality, or any other related topic.
To submit your poster, please send an extended abstract of 2-3 pages (ECCV
2018 paper template) by email to posters at pirm2018.org. The email must
include the poster title, authors, affiliations, and main contact email.
Submission deadline is July 29th.
Submissions will be reviewed by the workshop organizers. Accepted posters
will be presented at the workshop. Note that accepted abstracts will not
appear in the ECCV workshop proceedings.
