Call for Papers

The British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC) is one of the major
international conferences on computer vision and related areas.
It is organised by the British Machine Vision Association (BMVA).
The 31st BMVC will be held in Manchester, 7-11 Sept 2020.

Authors are invited to submit full-length high-quality papers in
image processing, machine vision, computer vision, and related areas.
Submitted papers will be refereed on their originality, presentation,
empirical results, and quality of evaluation.

All papers will be reviewed doubly blind, normally by three members of our
international programme committee. The BMVC is a single
track meeting with oral and poster presentations and will include three
keynote presentations and two tutorials.

Please Note: In keeping with conferences in the field (e.g. NeurIPS 2020:
and to cope with the increasing number of submissions, we ask that all
authors be prepared to review papers and make use of a compulsory abstract
submission deadline a week before the paper submission deadline.
The CMT submission site will ask authors to acknowledge this commitment
and failure to engage with the reviewing process might be grounds for rejection.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Statistics and machine learning for vision
Stereo, calibration, geometric modelling and processing
Face and gesture recognition
Early and biologically inspired vision
Motion, flow and tracking
Segmentation and grouping
Model-based vision
Image processing techniques and methods
Texture, shape and colour
Video analysis
Document processing and recognition
Vision for quality assurance, medical diagnosis, etc.
Vision for visualisation, interaction, and graphics
Object detection and recognition
Video analysis for action and event recognition
Illumination and reflectance
Deep learning for vision
3D computer vision
RGBD analysis

Accepted papers will be included the conference proceedings published
and DOI indexed by BMVA. Past proceedings can be found online:

Prospective authors can have a look at the 2019 edition, as an example:

The abstract deadline is Thursday 23rd April 2020 and the paper submission
deadline is Thursday 30th April 2020 (both 23:59, Pacific Time).

Selected best papers are invited to a special issue of the
International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV) for BMVC 2020 Best Papers.

Any queries to the Programme Chairs should be sent to:

The BMVC 2020 Programme Chairs are:

    Neill Campbell (University of Bath)
    Lourdes Agapito (University College London)
    William Smith (University of York)
    Martin Fergie (University of Manchester)
    Moi Hoon Yap (Manchester Metropolitan University)
