Top 10 Computer Vision Conferences To Watch Out For

Computer vision

The Covid-19 pandemic may have upended several large conferences in recent months, but it has not dampened the spirits of organisers who have managed to circumvent the challenges prompted by stringent social distancing protocols. Turning to virtual conferences has not only enabled them to reach out to wider audiences, but also helped them save precious resources. 

These virtual conferences are quickly gaining momentum across the world. With newer technological possibilities discovered and developed – especially in the field of computer vision – it is no wonder then that conferences that seek to delve deeper into this topic are being planned throughout the year.

Here is a list of ten conferences – both virtual and in-person – that you must attend to get a better understanding of computer vision:
