The Computer Vision community is in need of moving beyond dataset or task-specific methods towards those that can efficiently adapt to new tasks or domains in a supervised, semi-supervised or unsupervised manner. We aim in this technical meeting to bring together leading researchers, at various levels in their career, with expertise or strong interest in TL for Computer Vision problems, in order to discuss current challenges and propose future directions including potentially establishing a continuous forum or a workshop series.

We are inviting researchers to present short talks and posters that address the motivation, methodologies, challenges and applications of using TL in Computer Vision. These could include ongoing or recently published works, relevant but not limited to:
