The 2019 IEEE Winter Conference of Applications on Computer Vision (WACV 2019) will host two days of workshops on January 7 and 11, 2019, before and after the main conference, in Waikoloa Village, Hawaii. We invite workshop proposals that focus on topics related to computer vision and its applications, interdisciplinary themes with other scientific and application areas, as well as emerging challenges or competitions.

The format, style, and content of accepted workshops are under the control of the workshop organizers and largely autonomous from the main conference. Workshop organizers are expected to manage their technical programs, invite experts in the domain, and maintain a website for the workshop. Workshop registration and logistics will be handled by the main conference.
