We invite workshop proposals for the 2021 IEEE Winter Conference of Applications on Computer Vision (WACV 2021). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, accepted workshops will be held online as virtual events. 

The workshop proposals should focus on topics related to computer vision and its applications, interdisciplinary themes with other scientific and application areas, as well as emerging challenges or competitions. The format, style, and content of accepted workshops are under the control of the workshop organizers and largely autonomous from the main conference. Workshop organizers are expected to manage their technical programs, invite experts in the domain, and maintain a website for the workshop. Workshop registration and logistics will be handled by the main conference.
