CVPR 2014 Decisions.

CVPR 2014 decisions are now available to authors, and registration is open.
See http://www.pamitc.org/cvpr14/ for details. As usual there will be a
PAMI-TC meeting during the conference.


CALL FOR NOMINATIONS - 2014 PAMI Young Researcher Award

This annual award recognizes a young researcher for their distinguished
research contribution to computer vision. The award is given out by the IEEE
Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (PAMI) Technical Committee, and
the selection is managed by the PAMI-TC awards committee. The winner will
be announced annually at the IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and
Pattern Recognition (CVPR), and started in 2013.


This award is made annually for a distinguished research contribution in
computer vision by a young researcher within seven years of their PhD.

For 2014, eligible candidates must have received their PhD no earlier than
January 1 2007. Research in all areas of computer vision will be considered.

The award includes a 3,000 USD cash prize and a plaque.
It is financially sponsored by the journal Image and Vision Computing, and
is the successor of the Outstanding Young Researcher Award that IVC gave
out at CVPR 2012. The winners will be listed on the PAMI-TC web site.


A nomination for the award should consist of:

1. The full name and contact details of the nominator, who should hold a
senior position within his or her organization. It is acceptable for this to be
the same organization as the nominee.

2. The full name and contact details of the nominee.

3. A description provided by the nominator in up to 300 words, of the
distinguished research contribution in computer vision of the nominee,
and its importance, in a form accessible to a general computing science

4. A CV of up to 2 pages of the nominee (including 5 most important

5. A Publication list of all published articles of the nominee. (Please do
not include "accepted" but not yet published articles as these will not be
taken into account.)

6. The name and email address of two referees who would be able to
provide independent assessments of the nominee's research contribution
and who are based in different institutions than the nominator and the


Nominations should be in the form of a single electronic file in pdf
format. The name of the nominator and the nominee must be in the title
of the file. Nominations should be sent by the nominator by APRIL 30, 2014,
to: YRA@cv-foundation.org


The European Conference on Computer Vision will be held in Zurich,
September 6-12 2014.

Papers in the main technical program must describe high-quality, original
research. Topics of interest include all aspects of computer vision and pattern
recognition including, but not limited to:

* 3D computer vision
* Computational photography, sensing and display
* Faces and gestures
* Low-level vision and image processing
* Motion and tracking
* Optimization methods
* Physics-based vision and shape-from-X
* Recognition: detection, categorization, indexing, matching
* Segmentation, grouping and shape representation
* Statistical methods and learning
* Video: events, activities and surveillance
* Applications

Paper submission deadline: Friday, 7 March 2014, 10pm GMT
(Submission date is fixed. There will be no deadline extension.)
Supplementary materials deadline: Friday 14 March 2014, 10pm GMT.
Announcement of decisions: Tuesday 17 June 2014.

All submissions will be handled electronically. By the above deadline, a
complete, anonymized paper should be submitted. The length should
match that intended for final publication. In the proceedings, accepted
papers will be allocated 14 pages for the main paper excluding references.

In addition to the main technical program, the conference will include
tutorials, workshops, demonstrations, and exhibits. Separate calls for
these event will be published in due time.

Registration is still open for WACV 2014, which will be held March 24-26 in
Steamboat Springs, CO. While the acronym is being kept, the PAMI-TC's
premier meeting on applications of computer vision has been promoted to
be a full IEEE conference, rather than an IEEE workshop. This means the
scope of topics has been increased to all areas of computer vision.
