2nd Workshop on Maritime Computer Vision (MaCVi)
Submission of contributed papers
Authors are encouraged to submit original high quality research papers.
Papers accepted and presented at this WACV workshop will be published as part of the
WACV Workshop Proceedings and will be included in IEEE Xplore.
Paper submissions should follow the same guidelines as
for the main WACV 2024 conference. In particular, the main paper has an 8-page limit,
excluding the references. There is no limit on the number of pages in the supplementary material.
Please use the official WACV 2024 paper template available on Google Drive
Please note, that at least one author per accepted paper needs to register to the conference by the camera-ready
Accepted papers are supposed to be presented in a 1-2-minute spotlight presentation and there will be a
subsequent poster session.
All papers should be submitted via CMT using this link:

Submit results to MaCVi2024 challenges
An integral part of the workshop are the four challenges UAV-based Multi-Object Tracking with Reidentification and
USV-based Obstacle Detection, Segmentation and Tracking. These challenges aim to
foster the development of computer vision algorithms in SaR missions and autonomous boat navigation, respectively.
The UAV-based challenge is mainly based on
an updated version of SeaDronesSee whereas the USV-based ones are based on the LaRS benchmark and a new dataset, respectively.
This year, the focus of these challenges will be on both accuracy (algorithm performance as measured by challenge-specific evaluation
metrics), and runtime on embedded hardware. For certain challenge tracks, we require the method to run in real-time on embedded hardware.
Nevertheless, for all other challenge tracks, we require participants to submit the processing speed of their algorithms in
frames per second, and specification of the hardware used.
Furthermore, note that there will be prizes for some of the challenges - in particular Sentient Vision sponsors the
track UAV-based Multi-Object Tracking with Reidentification. Stay stuned for updates!
There are 4 challenges with multiple subtracks: UAV-based Multi-Object Tracking with
Reidentification, and USV-based Obstacle Detection, Segmentation and Tracking..
Note that all deadlines are indicated in Pacific Time (USA)
and the paper submission deadlines are 11:59 AM (6:59 PM UTC). No extensions will be granted.
