Welcome to the April 2014 edition of the PAMI-TC newsletter

This month's topics include:

1. Call for Proposals: CVPR 2017

2. Call for Motions: PAMI-TC Meeting at CVPR 2014

3. Call for Nominations: 2014 PAMI Young Researcher Award

4. Call for Papers: CVPR 2014 Workshops

5. Call for Workshops: ACCV 2014


Call for Proposals for CVPR 2017.

Please send proposals to rdz@cs.cornell.edu by May 15, 2014. 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). If there will be a journal special issue based on the award papers, details should be provided. 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. Please plan for over 1500 participants. While we very much hope to get submissions, if no proposal is submitted by the deadline the PAMI-TC executive committee will put together a team and venue.


Call for PAMI-TC Motions:

There will be a PAMI-TC meeting at CVPR14. Please send proposed motions to rdz@cs.cornell.edu by May 15, 2014.

We are now operating under the new PAMI-TC Bylaws, approved at ICCV13 in December, and there will be a motion to revise the CVPR charter to bring it into compliance with the bylaws. Note that as usual the entire set of motions to be voted on, including the CVPR 2017 bids, will be circulated to the PAMI-TC mailing list in advance of the meeting.

Voting will be conducted electronically at CVPR14 and will be open to all registered attendees.



- 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 audience.

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

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 nominee.


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

Important Dates:

  • Workshop proposals deadline: April 15, 2014
  • Notification of acceptance : May 1, 2014

The ACCV2014 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference.

The workshops will be held on Nov 1-2, 2014 (Saturday and Sunday).

The overall purpose of a workshop is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas on active and emerging topics related to computer vision. Workshops can take on a number of forms including but not limited to being organized around emerging research topics, challenge problems, evaluation or competition, and industrial applications.
