Doctoral Consortium


The CVPR14 Doctoral Consortium will take place on Tuesday, June 24, from 12:00-1:30pm, in C210-212.

Call for Participation:

Submissions due: May 2

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.

Submission Guidelines
  1. a two-page cover letter summarizing the applicant's research and progress to date and also proposing names of potential mentors,
  2. a CV including the expected graduation date,
  3. the title and author list of the poster that will be presented at the consortium, which may or may not be presented at CVPR as well,
  4. a note from their advisor confirming the date of graduation and stating his/her availability to participate as a mentor.

Review Process
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.

Travel Awards
Selected students will receive travel reimbursements for part of their expenses. The amount is anticipated to be in the order of $700 per participant.
