CVPR 2016 Tutorials: Call for Proposals (Extended)


Proposal Deadline: Friday, November 20, 2015
Tutorials Chairs: Raquel Urtasun and Sanja Fidler

We would like to solicit proposals for short courses and tutorials to be collocated with the IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR 2016). Short Courses and tutorials will take place on June 26, at the same venue as the main conference.

CVPR short courses and tutorials aim to provide a comprehensive overview of specific topics in computer vision. The topic should be of sufficient relevance with respect to the state-of-the-art and the course should be educational rather than a cursory survey of techniques. The audience for CVPR short courses and tutorials consists primarily of graduate students in computer vision. Although most courses are half-day offerings, we also invite proposals for full-day courses provided that the topic merits the additional time and can be anticipated to generate sufficient interest from our community.
