Six publications on computer vision, by researchers from the Informatics Institute, are accepted by the leading IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR). This is a new record for a Dutch university.

CVPR is the only conference in the top-100 of most cited sources by Google Scholar, which further consists of journals and arXiv preprints. The list starts with Nature followed by many major journals from other fields such as PLoS One at 25, Nature Neuroscience at 54, and Physical Review B at 73. It is no surprise that the only conference in the list is on artificial intelligence, as progress in this field is fast.
