Call for Workshops

Calls

The 2018 IEEE Winter Conference of Applications on Computer Vision (WACV 2018) will host one day of workshops on 15 March 2018, immediately after the main conference. We invite workshop proposals that focus on topics related to computer vision and its applications, interdisciplinary themes with other scientific and application areas, as well as emerging challenges or competitions.

The format, style, and content of accepted workshops are under the control of the workshop organizers and largely autonomous from the main conference. Workshop organizers are expected to manage their technical programs, invite experts in the domain, and maintain a website for the workshop. Workshop registration and logistics will be handled by the main conference.

Important Dates

  • Workshop proposal deadline: October 3, 2017
  • Acceptance notification: October 17, 2017
  • Workshop submissions due (suggested): December 8,2018
  • Workshop author notification (suggested): January 19, 2018

Submission Instructions

Proposals should clearly specify the following:

  • Workshop title, topic and tentative call for papers
  • Motivation, impact, and expected outcomes
  • Brief bios of organizers (including email and web pages)
  • Tentative program committee
  • Format (half/full day) and preliminary schedule
  • Tentative invited speakers
  • Estimated number of submissions and attendees
  • Plans (if any) for a special journal issue or book

Workshop proposals should be submitted in PDF via email to the Workshops Chair (peter.carr@disneyresearch.com). Proposals will be evaluated by the workshop chair and conference organizers, with an eye towards selecting high-quality workshops on a diverse set of topics that will inform and inspire the community.

Call for Tutorials

Calls

Proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with WACV 2018 are invited. Proposals must be
for half-day tutorials. The tutorials will be held during the mornings of the main conference.

Important Dates

  • Tutorial proposal deadline: December 8, 2017
  • Acceptance notification: December 22, 2017

Goals and Organization

The ideal tutorial should attract a wide audience, and should be broad enough to provide a gentle
introduction to the chosen research area, but should also cover the most important contributions
in depth. Tutorial materials should be made available by the presenters on their website prior to
the conference. Tutorial registration will be handled centrally by the main conference.

Submission Instructions

Proposals should have at most three pages and clearly specify the following:

  • Tutorial title and presenters
  • Outline of topics to be presented, including estimates for time devoted to each topic
  • A list of publications in recent conferences, not necessarily by the presenters, demonstrating the importance and community interest in the topics to be presented
  • Presenter bios and web pages; list of publications in tutorial topics
  • Presentation requirements (multimedia, etc.)
  • Sample slides (optional)

Tutorial proposals should be submitted in PDF format to the email address below by the due
date. Proposals will be evaluated by the tutorial chair and conference organizers, with an eye
towards selecting high-quality tutorials on a diverse set of topics that will inform and inspire the
community.
