Women in Computer Vision Workshop Call for Papers

The 9th WiCV workshop in conjunction with CVPR virtual June, 2021


The workshop is a half-day event with invited speakers, a panel
discussion, poster/oral presentations, and a mentoring/networking
session. The event brings together students, faculty, and research
scientists for an opportunity to exchange ideas and connect over a
mutual interest in computer vision. Attendees are invited to apply to
present their work. While paper submission is open to those that
identify as female, all genders are invited to attend the workshop. We
welcome submission in several computer vision theories and
applications, novel datasets as well as discussion of current
challenges and future directions.

- Extended Abstracts: We encourage primarily female-identifying

researchers in all areas of computer vision to submit a short paper (2
pages excluding references) describing new, previously, or
concurrently published research or work-in-progress.

- Full Length Papers: The workshop will offer the opportunity to
publish full length papers in the workshop proceedings (4-8 pages
excluding references). These papers should describe new work that has
not been previously published, accepted for publication, or submitted
for review at another venue during our review period. The accepted
papers will appear in the CVPR workshops proceedings and IEEE
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.

- While all presenters will identify primarily as female, all genders
are invited to attend the workshop.

- We encourage presenters of all genders to highlight the contribution
of the female authors, particularly the presenting author.

Paper template:  

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


Resume submission is optional, and will not be used to evaluate
submission. 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.

Attendance awards:

If you wish to be considered for an attendance grant, please mark
'yes' to the question 'Are you applying for an attendance stipend?'
when submitting your paper on CMT. Those participants indicating
‘yes’ will receive a follow-up email linking to the grant
application form.

Attendance grants will be awarded to a selected 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. In previous years, attendance grants ranged from
$200-$2000 depending on the location of the grant recipient. This
year, the grants will be used to cover the cost of attending the
workshop virtually. Grant recipients will be asked to provide receipts
for expenses prior to receiving their award. The reimbursements will
be sent shortly after the workshop.  Registration Instructions
