concurrently published research or work-in-progress.

publish full length papers in the workshop proceedings (4-8 pages
excluding references). These papers should describe new work that has

Xplore. These papers will also be in the Computer Vision Foundation
(CVF) open access archive.

- The reviewing process is single-blind.

- Authors of all accepted papers will be invited to present their work
in a poster session, and a few in an oral session.

- The presenter need not be the first author of a submission.

Paper template: For both types of submissions please use the final
CVPR paper template.

Resume: Resume submission is optional. Accepted posters and orals will
be selected solely based on the submission. If you choose to share
your resume with industry sponsors, you should upload it to CMT on the
submission page.

Travel awards: If you wish to be considered for a travel grant, please
mark 'yes' to the question 'Are you applying for a travel stipend?'
when submitting your paper on CMT. Those participants indicating
"yes" will receive a follow-up email linking to the travel grant

Travel Awards

Travel grants will be awarded to a select number of accepted
papers. Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee award grants to all
accepted papers. Final grant amounts will depend on the number of
applications received and will be announced after paper acceptance
notifications. Last year travel grants ranged from $200-$2000
depending on the location of the grant recipient. The travel grants
can be used for any travel expenses incurred from attending the
workshop, such as flights, hotel, and conference registration. Note
that the travel grant may not (and probably will not) cover all your
expenses. Travel grant recipients will be asked to provide receipts
for expenses prior to receiving their award. International travel
grant recipients will be required to submit additional information,
including entry visa information, in order to receive
reimbursement. The reimbursements will be sent shortly after the
