– Image processing methods for dealing with plant science data
– Processing of plant video, including time-lapse
– Shape and morphological modelling for plant science
– Colour analysis for plant science
– Microscopic image analysis in the plant domain
– Analysing plant images outside of the visible spectrum (e.g. X-ray, CT, thermal…)
– Analysing plant growth and motion from images and video
– Evaluation and benchmarking of plant image analysis

All papers should include a focus on the biological application as well as the methodology.  Papers can be either research articles or reviews.
