WACV (IEEE Winter Conference on Applications of Computer Vision)


  • Winter Conference on Applications of Computer Vision (WACV) is the IEEE’s and the PAMI-TC’s premier meeting on applications of computer vision.
  • WACV is a full-fledged IEEE conference which covers all areas of computer vision.
  • It is always held in USA.

Computer Vision (CV) resources

This page provides some useful resources about computer vision (CV).

(Stay tuned, as I will update the content on this  page while I plow and grow in my deep learning garden:))

  • Top and major CV conferences 

  • Top and major CV journals

  • IEEE PAMI (Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence) —  (1979 – present, monthly) [SCI indexed] (the best journal in computer vision)
  • IJCV (International Journal of Computer Vision)– (1987 – present) [SCI indexed; Springer]

(IJCV is typically considered on par with T-PAMI which is the best journal in computer vision. Review time should be ~4-5 months for first set of reviews and ~12-14 mo for final publication. A good way to get an estimate of time would be to browse through the recently published articles here –they list submitted date and publication date)
