2) Reports on past meetings
a) AIPR 2001, October (30th meeting)
Only 60 people; post 9/11 travel effect
Theme: time-varying imagery
AIPR 2002, 10/16-18/02, Cosmos Club
b) CVPR 2001
649 people; largest U.S. conference on CV; 270 students(!)
1) passport registration for workshops, short courses, tutorials:
feedback is good
2) paperless submission and review: the review software, written by
two MIT students, is available to community
3) technical sketches: mixed reception; needs nurturing
4) more posters: positive response
5) proceedings: more discussion; IEEE won't make a CD unless it also
prints hardcopy first
6) workshops had their own TC meeting and budget: reduced workload
3) Report on the status of Transactions on PAMI
For 2000, 426 papers submitted.
Acceptance rate (98-99) = 26%.
Submission to publication time = 17 months ( << 27 months of 3 years ago).
This year, 300 extra pages.
All conferences also experiencing record submissions (900 for CVPR,
600 for ECCV, also big numbers at ICIP).
PAMI has become the model: most submissions, lowest acceptance rate
of all Transactions.
4) CVPR 2004
Baltimore's Inner Harbor proposed and unanimously accepted
Lots of inexpensive hotels; the Aquarium as reception.
5) TC chair
Chuck Dyer unanimously elected for 2002-03 two-year term.
