ICCV 2017 Doctoral Consortium

Call for Participation: ICCV 2017 Doctoral Consortium
Overview

The ICCV Doctoral Consortium provides 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 is assigned as
mentor to each student participating in the Doctoral Consortium, based
on the student's preference or 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.

Eligibility

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

Eligible students who would like to participate in the Doctoral
Consortium should submit an application via CMT at
https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/ICCVDC2017/. The application is
due on 1st August 2017, and should include the following:
