Photogrammetric Computer Vision Workshop

PCV 19

June 17, 2019, Long Beach, CA (USA)

in conjunction with CVPR 2019


Both photogrammetry and computer vision, refer to the science of acquiring information about the physical world from image data. During the recent decades both fields have matured and converged, which is best illustrated by the widespread usage of the term “Photogrammetric Computer Vision” (PCV). The PCV 2019 workshop aims at providing a forum for collaboration between the computer vision and photogrammetry communities to discuss modern challenges and ideas, propose new and contemporary benchmarks, elaborate on the overlap to machine learning, mathematics and other related areas, and boost the development in the highly challenging and quickly evolving field of photogrammetric computer vision.

Aim and Scope

The full-day workshop will provide a forum for presentation of original research in computer vision and photogrammetry including the generation, processing, and analysis of 3D point clouds. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Feature extraction, matching, and sensor orientation
  • Structure from motion and SLAM
  • Stereo (multi-view) and surface reconstruction
  • 3D point cloud processing, segmentation, and classification
  • Multi-temporal analysis, dynamic scene understanding
  • Scene analysis and semantic segmentation

Paper Submission

All submissions will be handled electronically via:

Submission deadline is March 4 March 12 (extended), 2019, 23:59 (GMT). Papers are limited to eight pages, including figures and tables, in the CVPR style. Additional pages containing only cited references are allowed. Please refer to the following files for detailed formatting instructions:


The submission deadline and the page limit are strict. Manuscripts with more than 8 pages (excluding references), or which are received after the deadline, will be rejected without review.

Reviewing is double blind, in that authors do not know the names of the reviewers and reviewers do not know the names of the authors. Please read Section 1.6 of the example paper egpaper_for_review.pdf for detailed instructions on how to preserve anonymity. Avoid providing acknowledgments or links that may identify the authors.

By submitting a manuscript, the authors guarantee that it has not been previously published or accepted for publication in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper either is under review at the moment of submission or will be submitted during the review period to any other conference, workshop or journal.

Please note however, that papers that are at most 4 pages *including references* do not count as a dual submission according to CVPR and ICCV rules. Therefore, such papers can be submitted to PCV even if they are submitted/accepted at CVPR or ICCV.


Registration for PCV 2019 is handled through the local conference website. Please visit the conference site also for any additional information, such as venue and travel information, nearby accommodation, and the full conference program.
