Call for Participation: CVPR 2016 Women in Computer Vision Workshop
Computer vision has made tremendous progress in recent years over a wide range of areas, and has also become one of the largest computer science research community. However, despite the expansion of our field, the percentage of female faculty members and researchers both in academia and in industry is still relatively low. As a result, most female researchers working in computer vision feel isolated and do not have a lot of opportunities to meet with other women. The half-day workshop on Women in Computer Vision is a gathering for both women and men working in computer vision.
The goals of this workshop are to:
-- Raise visibility of women in computer vision by presenting invited research talks by women who are role models in this field.
-- Give opportunities to junior female students or researchers to present their work via a poster session and travel awards.
-- Share experience and career advice for female students and professionals.
All undergraduate and graduate students, researchers and faculty who are interested in or working in any area of computer vision are encouraged to attend. *** Travel grants are available for female presenters who are students (undergraduate or graduate), post-docs, and junior industry researchers. ***
We encourage female students, post-docs, and junior researchers to submit an application through the WiCV CMT site: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/WICV2016
The application should include:
-- An abstract of 2 pages or less, using the CVPR template. This abstract should describe either new or previously published research, including research presented at CVPR 2016.
-- The applicant's CV.
Authors of accepted abstracts will be asked to present their work in a poster session.
Abstract submission deadline for travel stipend consideration: April 1, 2016
Notification of acceptance for travel stipend submissions: April 8, 2016
Final abstract submission deadline (no travel stipend possible): April 22, 2016
Final abstract acceptance notification: April 29, 2016
Workshop: June 26, 2016 (afternoon)
Final grant amounts will depend on the number of applications received and will be announced soon. Last year travel grants ranged from $200-$800 depending on the location of the grant receiver.
