LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 12 June 2020 — The Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) Conference, one of the largest events exploring artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, deep learning, and more, will take place 14-19 June as a fully virtual event. Over the course of six days, the event will feature 45 sessions delivered by 1467 leading authors, academics, and experts to more than 6500 attendees, who have already registered for the event.

“The excitement, enthusiasm, and support for CVPR from the global community has never been more apparent,” said Professor of Computer Science at Cornell University and Co-Chair of the CVPR 2020 Committee Ramin Zabih. “With large attendance, state of the art research, and insights delivered by some of the leading authorities in computer vision, AI, and machine learning, our first-ever fully virtual event is shaping up to be an exciting experience for everyone involved.”

As a fully virtual event, attendees will have access to all CVPR program components, including fireside chats, workshops, tutorials, and oral and poster presentations via a robust, fully searchable, password-protected portal. Credentials to access the portal are provided to attendees shortly upon registration.

CVPR fireside chats, workshops, and tutorials will be conducted via live video with live Q&A between presenters and participants. Oral and poster presentations, which will be repeated, will include a pre-recorded video from the presenter(s), followed by a live Q&A session. Attendees will also be able to access presentations/papers and the pre-recorded videos at their convenience to help ensure maximum access given the diverse time zones in which conference participants live. Additionally, CVPR participants can leverage complementary video chat features and threaded question and answer commenting associated with each session and each sponsor to support further knowledge sharing and understanding.  Multiple online networking events with video and text chat elements are also included.

The CVPR Committee has gone to great lengths to deliver a first-in-class virtual conference experience that all attendees can enjoy,” said IEEE Computer Society Executive Director Melissa Russell, co-sponsor of the event. “We are thrilled to be part of this endeavor and are excited to deliver and witness in the coming days the ‘what’s next’ in AI, computer vision and machine learning.”
