Marine Imaging Workshop 2024: Illuminating the ocean

Marine imaging is a major method in the science, policy and public understanding of the world's oceans. The topic is developing rapidly, driven by the technological evolution and increasing application of marine imaging in all oceans. Images of all types are used to explore unseen ocean habitats, to motivate designation of marine conservation areas, for assessing environmental baselines and monitoring of human impacts and to communicate ocean narratives.
The international Marine Imaging Workshops assemble scientists and engineers from different disciplines to push the boundaries of marine imaging. Biologists, geologists, engineers, computer scientists and end-users will discuss topics ranging from the start to finish of marine image and video analysis. Topics include imagary collection, processing, still/video annotation, machine learning, image data management and much more.
