OAGM Workshop 2022

Digitalization for Smart Farming and Forestry

September 13–14, 2022, Tulln

The Austrian Association for Pattern Recognition (OAGM) invites authors and guests to participate at its 45th annual workshop, held in Tulln, Austria, on September 13–14, 2022. The workshop provides a platform for presentation and discussion of research progress as well as current projects within the OAGM community. This year, we additionally focus on interdisciplinary research of computer vision and pattern analysis in particular in the  application domains farming, agriculture, and forestry. The aim would be to bring together Austrian and nearby located groups, researchers, and students working on interdisciplinary topics for discussion and establishing potential collaborations.

General topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • 3D vision, stereo, and structure from X 
  • Active learning, interactive machine learning, and human-in-the-loop
  • Animal and plant phenotyping
  • Cyber-physical systems for smart farm and forest operations
  • Embedded and mobile computer vision / machine learning
  • Explainability, ethics, and fairness in computer vision / machine learning 
  • Image denoising, restoration & enhancement 
  • Image, video, and multimodal retrieval 
  • (Bio-)Medical image analysis
  • Motion and  tracking 
  • Multi- and hyperspectral image analysis
  • Object/scene detection, recognition, and categorization
  • Pattern analysis (visual and non-visual data) 
  • Precision agriculture and precision forestry
  • Remote sensing and earth observation
  • Robot vision and embedded intelligence
  • Sensors and information fusion
  • Statistical methods and machine learning
  • Video analysis and event recognition 
  • Vision datasets, benchmarking, and performance evaluation




The workshop will be held at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna, Campus Tulln, Ingeborg Dirmhirn House, Konrad Lorenz Straße 24, 3430 Tulln.

Conference Chairs:

  • Hermann Bürstmayr (BOKU)
  • Andreas Gronauer (BOKU)
  • Andreas Holzinger (BOKU)
  • Peter M. Roth (Vetmeduni, TUM)
  • Karl Stampfer (BOKU)


We solicit full papers (6 pages) of original, unpublished work, application spotlight papers (1–2 pages) focusing on the solution of practical problems, and student papers (2 pages, presented as a poster). Paper lengths exclude references. All submitted papers will undergo a double-blind peer review process by the program committee. Accepted papers will be published online with Verlag der TU Graz in a fully open access electronic volume (with ISBN, and DOIs for individual papers).
