The 9th international conference on Computational Visual Media (CVM 2021) will be held on Apr 21 to Apr 23 , 2021, in Qingdao, China. The Computational Visual Media Conference series is intended to provide a major international forum for exchanging novel research ideas and significant practical results both underpinning and applying Visual Media. With the rapid progress of Internet technology, large-scale visual data can be found on the Internet, bringing significant opportunities for novel processing of visual information, as well as commercial applications. The primary rationale for this new conference series is to target cross disciplinary research which amalgamates aspects of computer graphics, computer vision, machine learning, image processing, video processing, visualization and geometric computing. Original research is sought in areas concerning the classification, composition, retrieval, synthesis, and understanding of visual media.
