Title1：Few-Shot Learning Research and Application
In the last decade, deep learning-based methods for visual recognition tasks have reached or even surpassed human beings' level in some scenarios. One crucial point for success is the numerous labeled data. However, it may be a heavy burden of data collection and maintenance under actual circumstances.

Title 1: Endogenous relationship between Rate-distortion optimization and rate control in Video Coding
Hybrid coding framework mainly consists of intra- and inter-prediction, transform and quantization, filter control analysis and entropy coding. With the improvement of the requirement of video quality, the coding optimization mechanism becomes a hot topic, and its goal is to minimize distortion under the code rate budget. Recently, many encoder-only optimization techniques have been developed, which include rate-distortion optimization (RDO) and classical rate control (RC) that adjust variable values such as the quantization parameter (QP) or the Lagrangian multiplier to improve the final image processing effect and performance. However, as a non-core part of the coding standard, RDO has an extremely deep internal relationship with RC. In addition to the encoder optimization technology, the selection of high-quality upsampling and downsampling algorithms for image preprocessing, as well as a series of post-processing techniques to address block effects and artifacts in images, can also directly affect the final image processing effect and performance. At present, coding technology has attracted progressive attention.

Title 1：Visual quality assessment
Since people spend a lot of time consuming streaming videos every day, visual quality assessment (VQA) is thus an essential topic since it reflects the fulfillment of enjoyment or expectation of a service. Moreover, it also can be used for the comparison and optimization of different visual signals. In many image processing tasks (e.g., image acquisition, compression, restoration, transmission, etc.), it is necessary to assess the quality of the output image. The end-user of a visual signal is human, thus the subjective and objective assessments are of vital importance.

Title 1 ：Intelligent Security and Privacy-Preserving for Open Environments
Summary： Artificial intelligence is an important part of national strength and will lead the way as a strategic technology in the future. Artificial intelligence technology has promoted the innovation and development of industries such as smart manufacturing, smart logistics, smart healthcare, and smart cities, and has gradually become a key arena for competition among countries. However, a large number of studies and practices have shown that artificial intelligence technology is not yet fully mature, and related intelligent algorithms have security risks, which will cause problems such as data leakage, data forgery, algorithm bottlenecks, privacy security, and ethical dilemmas. These have effects on national security, economic development, and social stability directly or indirectly. Therefore, the issue of intelligent security and data privacy has become a major strategic need of the country. Intelligent security technology can ensure the security of artificial intelligence models through static or dynamic mechanisms so that the system is in a safe state under any circumstances. Intelligent security technology can also ensure that the artificial intelligence system does not leak the user's sensitive data and generates the expected correct results. The discovery and protection of data privacy can effectively reduce the risk of sensitive data leakage and prevent sensitive data of individuals, companies, and even countries from being obtained or used by criminals to cause harm.

Title 1 ：Single Object Tracking
Single Object Tracking (SOT) is a fundamental and hot topic in the field of computer vision and plays an important role in many applications such as video surveillance, virtual reality, navigation and robotics. The main problem is how to locate a given target (either by manual selection or by automatic detector detection, typically a rectangular box) from continuous image sequences and estimate the target state (such as position, shape, velocity, direction and state information such as motion trajectory. In recent years, with the spread of high-performance computers and the growing demand for video analysis, SOT has developed rapidly and is gaining increasing attention and application in related fields.

Title 1 ：Complex systems modeling and Hybrid Intelligent System
Due to the large scale, non-linearity, coupling, spontaneous order and feedback loop, it is challenging to elaborate the working state and changing rules of the complex systems. Thus, it is difficult to take the whole system as the sum of all the individuals based on reductionism. Also, it cannot derive the property of the system from the entire behavior. Furthermore, since most of the problems in practical applications are complicated, fuzzy and high-dimensional, it makes the existing individual intelligent technique cannot be directly applied to address these problems. Thus, the hybrid intelligent systems have been an emerging field and attracted increasing attention. This workshop aims to summarize the modeling methods of complex systems, the development approaches of hybrid intelligent systems as well as the evaluation criteria, via the analysis of various complex systems modeling methods and hybrid intelligent system theories. As the development of a large number of artificial intelligent algorithms, complex systems modeling and hybrid intelligent system have become hot topics. Currently, it usually depends on the personal experience to construct hybrid intelligent systems. Therefore, Theoretical breakthroughs are urgently neededin these two fields, and the research of hybrid intelligent system has been further developed.

Title 1 ：Fuzzy Image Processing
There are many reasons for image blurring, including optical factors, atmospheric factors, artificial factors, technical factors and so on. It is of great significance to deblur images in daily production and life.To obtain a better treatment effect, different methods are often needed to deal with the fuzziness caused by different reasons. How to use the degraded images to calculate the clear images with good visual effect is a very meaningful practical problem. From the aspect of technology, fuzzy image processing methods are mainly divided into three categories: image enhancement, image restoration and super resolution reconstruction.However, most traditional image restoration and enhancement methods still have shortcomings in complex degradation model modeling, natural image prior characterization, distortion suppression and so on. Although the methods based on deep learning which have been proposed a lot recently can avoid the optimization model and the prior manual design, they often need to be trained on large data sets, and the calculation cost is very high. And the end-to-end mode makes it impossible for people to know how it works.
The workshop aims to bring together the research accomplishments provided by researchers from academia and the industry. The other goal is to show the latest research results in the field of Fuzzy Image Processing and understand How to use the degraded images to calculate the clear images. We encourage prospective authors to submit related distinguished research papers on the subject of both: Image enhancement, Image restoration and Super resolution reconstruction. Please name the title of the submission email with “paper title_workshop title”.
