Guest Editorial Special Issue on Extreme Imaging

W. T. Freeman, A. Savakis, Y. Schechner, N. Snavely, Wolfgang Heidrich

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The papers in this special section focus on the technology of extreme imaging. Includes papers presented at the Extreme Imaging Workshop at the International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV 2015) as well as other selected papers. AS IMAGING matures and computing power increases, new methodologies and imaging modalities are emerging that can be labeled as “extreme.” The characterization “extreme” is in consideration to time scale, spatial extent, object size, illumination, dynamic range, processing speed, unconventional environments, data size, etc. What qualifies as extreme depends on the current state of the art, but the term captures the surprising jumps in scope or capabilities that are most exciting in imaging and vision.
