Welcome to the June edition of the PAMI-TC newsletter

This month's topics include:

1. Motions to be voted on at CVPR 2014

2. Call for Papers: WACV 2015

3. Call for Papers: ECCV 2014 Workshops

4. Call for Papers: ACCV 2014

5. IEEE CSVT Newsletter


Only one bid for CVPR17 was received by the deadline, and the TC Conference Committee declined to put forward an alternative bid.

The winning bid is available at http://goo.gl/PJ8ScC.

The venue is not yet fixed, and will be the subject of an informal poll at CVPR14 to obtain community input. The following 4 motions will be voted on electronically. There will be a discussion at the TC meeting on Wednesday June 25, after which voting will open, with results announced the next day.

1. (Proposed by Andrew Zisserman) General chairs are permitted to submit papers to CVPR, but only if the program chairs guarantee that the general chairs will have the exact same access and software privileges regarding the reviewing process that are available to every author.

2. (Proposed by Gang Hua) It is strongly recommended that CVPR publish, for each accepted paper, the reviews, meta-reviews and author rebuttals in anonymous format. This information should be made publicly available in the CVF archive of CVPR papers.

3. (Proposed by Ramin Zabih) A CVPR submission whose authors can only be identified with the aid of external information, such as web search, is not in violation of the "double blind" policy.

4. (Proposed by Ramin Zabih) The revised CVPR charter is hereby adopted. The revised CVPR charter is available at http://goo.gl/Hzeu2h.

The PAMI TC is now operating under a new set of bylaws, available at http://goo.gl/O1KEk6. The revised CVPR charter incorporates some changes to ensure consistency with the new bylaws.

It is very similar to the ICCV charter (http://goo.gl/pLm479) adopted at ICCV13, the changes from the ICCV charter are highlighted in yellow.
