The fourth Marine Imaging Workshop will be held from October 3rd to October 7th in Brest, France, with both on-site and online attendance available.

Marine imaging with cameras 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. Photos and videos are used to explore unseen ocean habitats, to motivate designation of marine conservation areas, for assessing environmental baselines and monitoring of human impacts and communicate ocean narratives.

The international Marine Imaging Workshops assemble around 100 scientists and engineers from different disciplines to push the boundaries of marine imaging. Biologists, ecologists, computer scientists, end-users and stakeholders discuss the methods and procedures for optimising the ways we harvest information through images. Topics cover everything from the start to finish of marine image analysis: acquisition planning, image collection, processing of images prior to annotation, still/video annotation, the future of annotation, FAIR image data management and much more.
