Call for Participation: ICCV15 Doctoral Consortium


The ICCV 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 a mentor for each student based on similarity of research interests. At the meeting, each student will discuss their research and future plans with their mentor and other participants.

Selected Student Participants and Mentors


All Ph.D. students in computer vision who will graduate within the next 6-8 months, as well as those who have graduated in the past 6 months are eligible.

Submission Guidelines

Eligible students who would like to participate in the Doctoral Consortium should submit an application via CMT at DCICCV15/. The application is due on October 5 (9PM Pacific Time), and should include the following information:

  1. Is your university/college/department a US institution? (yes/no)
  2. Expected graduation date
  3. Names of 5 potential mentors
  4. Title and author list of the poster that will be presented at the consortium, which may or may not be presented at ICCV as well
  5. Research statement (1 page + unlimited references) summarizing the applicant's research and progress to date
  6. Applicant's CV
  7. Note from applicant's advisor confirming the date of graduation and stating the advisor's availability as a mentor.

Items 3-7 should be uploaded as a single pdf file.
All information is required. Incomplete applications will be rejected. Page limit on research statement is strict.

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 on the order of $700 per participant. Receipts will be required for processing reimbursements. Details will posted.
