Call for Grand Challenges

2019 IEEE Visual Communications and Image Processing (VCIP) Conference is a premier international forum for the exchange of fundamental research results and technological advances in the field of visual communications and image processing. We invite the IEEE community to collectively define and tackle the scientific Grand Challenges in our domain. VCIP 2019 Grand Challenges aim to inspire new ideas in the IEEE community and create momentum for future collaborative work. Analysis, synthesis, and interactive tasks are all possible.

The grand challenge sessions are still to be confirmed. We invite organizers from various fields related to visual communications and image processing to propose and run Grand Challenge events. We are looking for exciting and stimulating challenges that align with the theme of the conference.

Prospective organizers should submit a five-page maximum proposal containing the following information:

  • Draft call for papers; affiliations and email address of the organizers; summary of the Grand Challenge; list of potential Technical Program Committee members and their affiliations, important dates

Proposals will be evaluated based on originality, ambition, feasibility, and implementation plan.
