After the successful CVPPP workshops from recent years at ECCV, BMVC  and ICCV, CVPPP this year is held in conjunction with CVPR 2019. The goal of this fifth workshop is to continue to showcase the challenges raised by and extend the state of the art in computer vision for plant phenotyping. Plant phenotyping is the identification of effects on plant structure and function (the phenotype) resulting from genotypic differences (i.e., differences in the genetic code) and the environmental conditions a plant has been exposed to. Knowledge of plant phenotypes is a key ingredient of the knowledge-based bioeconomy, which not only literally helps to feed the world, but is also essential for feed, fibre and fuel production. We want to identify key but unsolved problems, expose the current state-of-the-art, and broaden the field and the community.

Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
* advances in segmentation, tracking, detection, reconstruction and identification methods that address unsolved plant phenotyping scenarios
* open source implementation, comparison and discussion of existing methods and annotation tools
* image data sets defining plant phenotyping challenges, complete with annotations if appropriate, accompanied with benchmark methods if possible, and suitable evaluation methods. Compare e.g. the Plant Leaf Segmentation Challenge (LSC), which spawned from earlier CVPPPs and is meanwhile hosted at CodaLab (https://competitions.codalab.org/competitions/18405) as permanent competition.

Invited speakers [tentative]]:
Prof. Victor Lempitsky (Skoltech; http://sites.skoltech.ru/compvision/members/vilem/)
