ATTENTION: We're pleased to announce that EI 2021 will be fully online! We recognize that one of the most important features of attending EI is interacting with colleagues from Industry and Academia. We are committed to making community connection a priority and to providing ample opportunities to meet and discuss personally with others. We see the move to an online platform as an opportunity for greater numbers of people to join from around the world. Join us on this exciting adventure . . . submit your work today!

Conference Overview

Recent progress at the intersection of deep learning and imaging has created a new wave of interest in imaging and multimedia analytics topics, from social media sharing to augmented reality, from food and nutrition to health surveillance, from remote sensing and agriculture to wildlife and environment monitoring. Compared to many subjects in traditional imaging, these topics are more multi-disciplinary in nature. This conference will provide a forum for researchers and engineers from various related areas, both academic and industrial, to exchange ideas and share research results in this rapidly evolving field.
