BMVC 2017 Workshops Call for Proposals

BMVC 2017 Workshops Call for Proposals

Workshops Chairs: Yannis Panagakis and Tania Stathaki
Proposal Deadline: 17 February 2017
Notification by: 24 February 2017

We are soliciting proposals for workshops to be held together with the
2017 British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC 2017). Workshops will
take place on September 7, afternoon (i.e., half-­day), at South
Kensington Campus of Imperial College London, next to the main
conference venue.

The purpose of workshops is to provide a comprehensive forum on topics
that will not be fully explored during the main conference as well as
to encourage in-­depth discussion of technical and application
issues. We also welcome "Challenge Workshops" that aim to compare new
and established methods on common data sets. BMVC 2017 organizers will
collect workshop registrations, provide facilities, and distribute
electronic copies of the workshop proceedings.

There will be competition for workshop space, time, and topic
coverage. To enable the competitive selection process, proposals must
be specific and detailed in justifying relevance and
viability. Proposers may be asked to provide additional information,
modify aspects of their proposals, or combine their proposal with
another one. Also note that publication deadlines are very tight
between the main conference acceptance notification (4/07/2017) and
the workshop camera-­ready deadline (25/07/2017), so proposers have to
be ready to undertake all the work related to soliciting and reviewing
submissions and collecting final contributions.

Proposals should be submitted by email to Dr Yannis Panagakis
( by February 17, 2017. Proposals should be
in PDF format and include the following information:

* Workshop title.
* Proposers' names, titles, affiliations, and primary contact email.
* Topics that will be covered.
* Background and experience that makes the proposers well suited for organizing the workshop.
* Rough program outline (estimated numbers of orals, posters, and invited talks).
* Names and bios of any invited speakers and indication of whether they have agreed to speak.
* Anticipated target audience as well as expected number of attendees.
* Description of relevance and viability.
* Description of how this proposal relates to previous workshops at BMVC/CVPR/ICCV/ECCV (be as specific as possible).
* Any special space or equipment requests.

For any questions, please contact the workshop chairs, Yannis
Panagakis ( and Tania Stathaki.
