3D Computer Vision continues to grow at a dramatic pace thanks to major recent developments, including the advent of 3D sensors, rapid advances in deep learning, and the public availability of large scale 2D image and 3D geometry datasets. Exciting new applications in robotics, autonomous systems, man/machine interaction, virtual and augmented reality, and 3D video and displays have added further momentum to the field. Many of these applications require the solution of 3D Computer Vision problems at its core. Therefore, we seek to gather high quality research publications on 3D Computer Vision.

We encourage researchers to study and develop novel computer vision methods that advance the state of 3D Computer Vision. More precisely, the relevant topics for this special issue include, but are not limited to:

Submission guidelines:

Submitted papers should present original, unpublished work, relevant to one of the topics of the Special Issue. All submitted papers will be evaluated on the basis of relevance, significance of contribution, technical quality, scholarship, and quality of presentation, by at least three independent reviewers. It is the policy of the journal that no submission, or substantially overlapping submission, be published or be under review at another journal or conference at any time during the review process. Manuscripts will be subject to a peer reviewing process and must conform to the author guide lines available on the IJCV website at: https://www.springer.com/11263 .

Please select "3D Computer Vision" at the beginning of the submission process.
