The CVPR 2014 Doctoral Consortium will take place on Tuesday, June 24, from 12:00-1:30pm, in C210-212.
Call for Participation:
Submissions due: May 2, 2014
The CVPR Doctoral Consortium will provide a unique opportunity to students who are close to finishing, or who have very recently finished, their doctorate degree, to interact with renowned and experienced researchers in the field, and discuss with them their ongoing research and career plans. One senior member of the community will be assigned as mentor for each student based on similarity of research interests. At the meeting, each student will present a poster either overviewing his or her thesis research or a single recent paper, which will be discussed with the mentors and other participants.
All Ph.D. students in computer vision who will graduate within the next 6 months, as well as those who have graduated in the past 6 months are eligible.
Eligible students who would like to participate in the Doctoral Consortium should send an application to Raquel Urtasun at urta...@cs.toronto.edu including the following. Items 1-3 should be combined into a single pdf file.
If all applications cannot be supported, selection will be based on the above material and the student's graduation date. Institutional representation will be taken into account; it is unlikely that more than two students from the same institution will be invited.
Selected students will receive travel reimbursements for part of their expenses. The amount is anticipated to be in the order of $700 per participant.
