CVPR 2014 - Call for Workshop and Tutorial Proposals

Proposal Deadline: October 14, 2013 (midnight local time) Notification by December 2, 2013

CVPR 2014, the 27th IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, will be held in Columbus, Ohio, from June 24-27, 2014.

We invite proposals for CVPR 2014 Workshops and Tutorials to be held at the CVPR 2014 venue on June 23 and 28.

The purpose of workshops is to provide a comprehensive forum on topics that will not be fully explored during the main conference as well as encourage the discussion of technical and application issues in depth.

The goal of tutorials is to provide students, junior and senior researchers with background on specific topics covered by the conference. We also welcome "Challenge Workshops" that aim to compare new and established methods on common data sets. CVPR 2014 organizers will collect workshop / tutorial registrations, provide facilities, arrange catering, and distribute electronic copies of the workshop proceedings.

Proposals must justify relevance and viability of intended workshops and tutorials to allow competitive selection. More specific guidelines on how to submit a workshop proposal are at:

and a tutorial proposal at:

Proposals and any related questions should be sent to the Chairs via the email system provided by these pages.

CVPR 2014 Tutorials and Workshops Co-Chairs Kristen Grauman, Raquel Urtasun, Jim Davis, and Margrit Betke

Call for Papers: WACV 2014

Steamboat Springs, CO. March 24-26, 2014

While the acronym is being kept, the PAMI-TC's premier meeting on applications of computer vision has been promoted to be a full IEEE conference, rather than an IEEE workshop. This means we are broadening the topics to all areas of Computer Vision, adding area-chairs, and moving to a two-round submission process.

*The First Round Submission Deadline has passed

Second Round Submission

Submission Deadline: December 10th, 2013 Author Feedback: January 20th - 23rd, 2014 Second Round Decisions: January 30th, 2014

Final call for ICPR 2014 workshop, tutorial and contest proposals

The ICPR 2014 organizing committee invites proposals for contests, tutorials and workshops in conjunction with the 22nd International Conference on Pattern Recognition in Stockholm. These events will be held on August 24, 2014, immediately before the main conference.

To propose a contest, tutorial or workshop, a PDF file containing the information outlined below must be sent to the ICPR 2014 Contest, Tutorial and Workshop Co-chairs by September 15th 2013.

Special ICCV supplement to the PAMI-TC newsletter

This mailing's topics include:

1. ICCV 2013 Student Travel Grants

2. Call for ICCV 2017 proposals

3. PAMI-TC Awards Committee

4. Call for nominations for PAMI-TC awards at ICCV13


ICCV and PAMI-TC are happy to announce the availability of student travel grants for ICCV 2013 to be held in Sydney from Dec 1 to 8.

Students wishing to apply for a travel grant should apply by forwarding the forms  (pdf version preferred -- the form should be editable) according to the instructions on the form.  The forms can also be found on the ICCV 2013 web site.



The amount of the grant will depend on the number of successful applicants, but is not expected to cover the complete costs of travel and accommodation, and will not exceed US $750.


ICCV 2017 Call:

Call for Proposals for ICCV 2017. Under the traditional ICCV geographical rotation, ICCV 2017 should be held in Europe. Please send proposals to by November 1, 2013. The proposal should include the following information: date, city, site, hotel, and team details (general chairs, program chairs, finance chair, local arrangements, and some of the other members in charge of the program). The team should contact the hotel/site to make sure the intended dates are indeed available. Proposers are encouraged to submit a preliminary budget, and required to provide an estimate of registration fees. The proposal should specify the sponsorship model (pure IEEE-CS, mixed IEEE-CS/CVF, or other) and the plan for any journal special issue. Voting will be conducted using the same process as we used for CVPR16: there will be an electronic vote open to all registered attendees at ICCV13, which will open after the bids are presented at the TC meeting.


Following the motion passed at CVPR13, the PAMI-TC now has an awards committee and a conflicts of interest policy, as described at The committee is in charge of all awards at ICCV13 except for those given to ICCV13 papers, which are the responsibility of the program chairs. Two of these awards are for career achievement, and nominations are solicited as described below.

There will be an award in memory of Mark Everingham, for contributions to the computer vision community, and also awards for papers from previous ICCV's that have stood the test of time.


PAMI-TC calls for nominations for two awards to be presented at ICCV-2013 in Sydney.  Both these awards are normally made on a biennial basis, and are presented at ICCV.

PAMI Azriel Rosenfeld Lifetime Achievement Award.

This award is given to researchers in Computer Vision who have made major contributions to the field over their career and who have influenced the field in an extraordinary way.

Previous winners of this award are listed at the following link.


Nominations should consist of a statement of the nominee's major contributions in research, education, administration, commercialization and service.  Nominations should clearly state the influence the nominee has had in advancing the aims of Computer Vision.

Applications should not exceed one page in length, and should be sent (preferably an attached PDF file) to the following email address: with the subject "Lifetime Achievement Award". The nominations should be received before October 31.


The awards will be judged by a committee appointed by the PAMI-TC Awards Committee:

PAMI Distinguished Researcher Award.

This award (formerly called Significant Researcher Award) is awarded to candidates whose research contributions have significantly contributed to the progress of Computer Vision.]

Previous winners of this award are listed at the following link:


Nominations should contain a statement of the nominee's major contributions in research, and be supported by an appraisal of the importance of this research contribution in influencing and inspiring other research.

Nominations should not exceed two pages in length, and should be sent (preferably an attached PDF file) to the following email address: with the subject "Distinguished Researcher Award".  The nominations should be received before October 31.
