We invite researchers to submit their recent work on the topic in the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Recovery (HADR) problems to be featured at our workshop at ICCV 2023 in Paris, France. This year, AI + HADR is archival and accepted submissions will be published with the Proceedings of ICCV 2023

1. Call for Papers

We welcome methods from computer vision and related fields.

We highly encourage work with clear applications to any of a variety of humanitarian and disaster response issues, including, but not limited to, search and rescue robotics, computer vision for damage assessment, motion planning in obstructed roads, Earth-observation for natural disaster prevention and response, machine learning for weather and natural disaster forecasts, alert and disinformation management on social media, and in particular this year response to conflicts (e.g. Ukraine-Russia), response to pandemics (e.g. COVID-19), monitoring and response of earthquakes (e.g. Turkey-Syria), and much more.

Paper Submission Format

Paper submissions will be limited to four pages of content (excluding references) in the ICCV 2023 format. Papers may contain appendices after the fourth page to highlight additional results, figures, proofs, and other supplementary materials, but the main body of the work should be self-contained.  Other supplementary materials, such as videos or audio clips, may be submitted as supplementary materials. Reviewers are not required to consider appendices or supplementary materials in their decisions.

All paper submissions must include application context. Discuss how your work relates to concerns in humanitarian assistance and disaster response operations. Please discuss any partnerships with agencies or stakeholders, and explain any concepts that would not be common knowledge to a general machine learning researcher. The intent of this narrative is to increase readability of papers for all workshop participants, from ML experts to domain practitioners of HADR, as well as to help us match your submission to reviewers.

Paper Submission Instructions

Please submit your paper and supplementary material to CMT: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/AIHADR2023. The submission deadline is June 16, 2023.

All submissions will undergo double-blind review; Thus, please ensure that your submission is anonymized when submitted, including removing names, affiliations, contact information, and ensuring that references to your own previous work are in the third person.

Paper Review Criteria

Paper submissions will be reviewed along the following criteria:

Each submission will be reviewed by at least one member each from the AI and HADR communities to ensure both technical merit and impact are both considered.
