More information:


Call for Proposals for CVPR 2015. Please send proposals to by May 15, 2012. The proposal should include the
following information: date, city, site, hotel, and half the team
details (general chairs, program chairs, local arrangements, and some
of the other members in charge of the program). The team should
contact the hotel/site to make sure the intended dates are indeed
available. Some estimate of meeting space and lodging costs should be
included. My advice would be to plan for >1500 participants. Just for
your information, following are the venues for the next 3 CVPRs: CVPR
2012 (East Coast, Providence, Rhode Island), CVPR 2013 (West Coast,
Portland Oregon), CVPR 2014 (Midwest, Columbus, Ohio)

For reference purposes, the following were the motions passed at past
CVPRs: (i) Future major conference bids will be due at least one month
before the PAMI-TC meeting where they will be voted upon. (ii) No
bids, including floor bids, will be accepted after the due date. (iii)
If no bids are received by due date, the PAMI-TC Conference Committee
will constitute a bid that will be voted upon at the TC meeting. (iv)
If only one bid is received by due date, the conference committee has
the discretion to put together an alternate bid.

As a reminder, the PAMI TC voted at CVPR-2009 & ICCV-2010 to adopt a
policy that program chairs and general chairs of all major PAMI TC
conferences cannot submit papers to that conference the year in which
they are chairing.

We will have a PAMI-TC meeting at CVPR 2012. Time and venue will be
announced at a later date.
