IEEE Winter Vision Meetings are collection of workshops, including the
Workshop on Applications of Computer Vision (WACV), plus other
workshops that vary from year to year. The average attendance over the
past three years has been over 150 participants. All of the meetings are
covered by a single "passport-style" registration and the logistics of
organization are simplified as all workshops are held under one

IEEE Winter Vision Meeting 2013 will be in Tampa, Florida in the Jan
2013. The exact dates are to be determined. We are soliciting
proposals for additional workshops. Please contact Sudeep Sarkar
( and Michael Brown (, the
WVM 2013 General Chairs, by Feb 15 2012, if you are interested in
organizing one. Formal proposals are not needed at this stage, just
expression of intent.

Contributions from related disciplines (such as machine learning, computer graphics, biological vision, mathematics) which illuminate the state-of-the-art in computer vision are also of interest, together with papers on longer term research challenges which point to new research directions or brave perspectives that might pave the way to innovation.

Accepted papers will be presented in the oral and poster sessions of the ECCV 2012 technical program. Continuing the top quality tradition of ECCVs, it will be a single-track conference with double-blind peer review process.
