ICCV 2019 Workshop and Challenge on Real-World Recognition from Low-Quality
Images and Videos (RLQ2019)
Seoul, South Korea, 27 Oct 2019

What is the current state-of-the-art for recognition and detection
algorithms in non-ideal visual environments? We are organizing the *RLQ
workshop and challenge in ICCV 2019*. RLQ 2019 consists of challenge,
keynote speech, paper presentation, poster session, special session on
privacy and ethics of visual recognition, and a panel discussion from the
invited speakers.

*Important Dates*
Paper submission deadline: Aug. 1, 2019 (11:59PM PST)
Notification to authors: Aug. 20, 2019 (11:59PM PST)
Camera-ready deadline: Aug. 28, 2019 (11:59PM PST)
Workshop day: Oct. 27, 2019 (Full day)

*Call for Papers*
Original high-quality contributions are solicited on the following topics:

 *[Paper Track] (4-8 pages)*
-Robust recognition and detection from low-resolution image/video
-Robust recognition and detection from video with motion blur
-Robust recognition and detection from highly noisy image/video
-Robust recognition and detection from other unconstrained environment
Artificial Degradations
-Low-resolution image/video enhancement, especially for recognition purpose
-Image/video denoising and deblurring, especially for recognition purpose
-Restoration and enhancement of other common degradations, such as
low-illumination, inclement weathers, etc., especially for recognition
-Novel methods and metrics for image restoration and enhancement
algorithms, especially for recognition purpose
-Surveys of algorithms and applications with LQ inputs in computer vision
-Psychological and cognitive science research with proper data processing
and enhancement
-Novel calibration and registration methods on gaze or object images etc.
for recognition or detection purpose.
-Novel imperfect low-quality data mining, cleaning, and processing methods
for training a recognition system.
-Other novel applications that robustly handle computer vision tasks with
LQ inputs
-Special Topic: Legal, privacy, and ethics in recognition

*[Abstract Track] (1-2 pages)*
We solicit “positioning” write-ups,  in the form of short non-archival
abstracts. They shall address important issues that may generate a lasting
impact for next 5-year research in the field of recognition in low-quality
visual data. Examples may include but are not limited to,
-Proposing novel technical solutions: preliminary works and “half-baked”
results are welcome
-Identifying grand challenges that are traditionally overlooked or
-Discussing rising applications where recognition from low-quality visual
data might have been a critical bottleneck
-Raising new research questions that may be motivated by emerging
-New datasets, new benchmark efforts, and/or new evaluation strategies
-Integration of low-quality visual recognition into other research topics

*[Challenge Track] (3-6 pages)*
Low-quality Image Recognition Challenge organized by QMUL

*Authors Guidelines*
- Each submitted full-paper must be no longer than eight pages, excluding
references. Please refer to the ICCV-2019 author submissions guidelines
regarding formatting, templates, and policies. The submissions will go
through a double-blind review process by the program committee. Selected
papers will be published in ICCV* IEEE/CVF Workshop proceedings*.
- Each submitted abstract must be no longer than two pages, excluding
references, in the format of ICCV-2019. The non-blind submissions will be
also reviewed by the program committee, on a selective and competitive
basis. The accepted abstracts will appear on the website. The workshop
organizers will lead a collective positioning paper, targeted at a top-tier
journal such as *TPAMI *or *IJCV*. Those whose abstracts are selected will
be invited as co-authors of this paper (the author order will be
- We will set up best paper awards for the full papers.
