Call For Papers

Brief Description:

Fuzzy set theory is the subject of intense investigation in fields like control theory, robotics, biomedical engineering, computing with words, knowledge discovery, remote sensing and socioeconomics. However, in the area of computer vision, other fields, e.g., machine learning, and communities, e.g., PAMI, ICCV, CVPR, ECCV, NIPS, are arguably the state-of-the-art. In particular, the vast majority of top performing techniques on public datasets are steeped in probability theory. Important questions to the fuzzy set community include the following. What is the role of fuzzy set theory in computer vision? Does fuzzy set theory make the biggest impact in terms of low-, mid- or high-level computer vision? Furthermore, do current performance measures favor machine learning approaches? Is there additional benefit that fuzzy set theory brings, and if so, how is it measured?

Objectives and Topics:

This special session invites new research in fuzzy set theory in computer vision. It is a follow up to the 2013 FUZZ-IEEE workshop View of Computer Vision Research and Challenges for the Fuzzy Set Community. In particular, we encourage authors to investigate their research using public datasets and to compare their results to both fuzzy and non-fuzzy methods. Topics of interest include all areas in computer vision and image/video understanding. Example topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Detection and recognition
- Categorization, classification, indexing and matching
- 3D-based computer vision
- Advanced image features and descriptors
- Motion analysis and tracking
- Linguistic description and summarization
- Video: events, activities and surveillance
- Intelligent change detection
- Face and gesture
- Low-level, mid-level and high-level computer vision
- Data fusion for computer vision
- Medical and biological image analysis
- Vision for Robotics

Submission Guideline:

- The submitted papers must be written in English and describe original research which is not published nor currently under review by other journals or conferences. Author guidelines for preparation of manuscript can be found at All manuscripts should be submitted through the paper submission website only. The authors must select "FZ13 - Fuzzy Set Theory in Computer Vision" in the Main research topic* during the submission process. The submission website is located at
