We solicit proposals for short courses and tutorials to be held at the 2017 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR 2017). Courses and tutorials will take place on July 21 and July 26, the days before and after the main conference.
A CVPR short course or tutorial should aim to give a comprehensive overview of a specific topic related to computer vision. A good course should be educational rather than just a cursory survey of techniques. The topic should be of sufficient relevance and importance to attract significant interest from the CVPR community. Typical tutorial audiences consist of graduate students studying computer vision, but also include researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry. We invite proposals for both half-day and full-day courses, but anticipate that most courses will be half-day unless the topic is expected to attract widespread community attention or will require the additional time.
For more information about typical CVPR tutorials and short courses, we encourage potential proposers to consult tutorial sites from recent years:
Proposals should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 18, 2016. Proposals should be in PDF format and include the following information:
